SOLD OUT Rickie Lee Jones

One of the preeminent singer songwriters of any generation. Rickie has a restless creative spirit — combined with a stubborn refusal to fit comfortably into any one musical niche — sealed her ultimate destiny as that of a highly regarded cult heroine. We are truly honored to host such an incredible artist.

Kate Taylor

A local treasure with a beautiful voice and spirit to match. Kate’s most recent studio album, Beautiful Road, received 3 stars from Rolling Stone Magazine, who called it a ‘heartfelt, folk-rock gem.’ Her shows are impassioned and lots of fun

Eilen Jewell Band

Cd release party for Eilen’s latest disc ‘Sea of Tears’. It’s a spectacular disc filled with gorgeous vocals, great songs and superb arrangements. Eilen sings like an angel and is backed by one of the best bands anywhere. One of the best releases of 09.

SOLD OUT Coco Montoya

GuitarOne magazine calls guitarist/vocalist Coco Montoya ‘the hottest southpaw in the blues’ and raves about his ‘master touch and killer tone.’ The Boston Globe succinctly states that Montoya’s music is ‘hot, blistering soul.’ From his early days as a drummer to his current status as one of the top-drawing guitarists and vocalists on the blues-rock scene, Montoya earned his status through years of hard work and constant touring.

Leo Kottke

One of the finest guitar players in the world, a very dry sense of humor, great stories make this one great show

Hayes Carll

2008 was good to Hayes Carll. Trouble In Mind debuted in April, Imus praised Carll for his smarts and fans discovered their new hero at one of his many live shows.Hayes was most-played Americana artist for 2008! Trouble In Mind received more radio airplay than many legends & veterans including Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Steve Earle, John Hiatt and Alejandro Escovedo.

The Waybacks

They draw freely from the old school and the old world, but The Waybacks are no throwback. They’ve been erroneously pigeonholed as a bluegrass band and celebrated as purveyors of ‘acoustic mayhem.’ They are as uninhibited and unpredictable as the eclectic San Francisco Bay area that claims them, and for nearly a decade, their experiments have always proven sharp-witted and musically dazzling. They’re living proof that in music anyway, evolution and intelligent design are entirely compatible. ‘The whole spirit of improvisation – that’s always been the cornerstone of this band for me,’ says founding singer, songwriter and guitarist James Nash. ‘Through all the stylistic changes and regardless of the instruments we’re playing, to me the fun of this band has always been that in some ways I can do whatever I feel like doing at any moment.’

Moonalice (featuring Jack Casady, GE Smith, Pete Sears, Barry Sless)

This tribe of hippie freaks features GE Smith (Saturday Night Live), Jack Casady (from the Airplane, Hot Tuna) Pete Sears (Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna etc.) Barry Sless (Phil Lesh, David Nelson), Steve Parrish (longtime Grateful Dead roadie) and some surprise gusets. They conjure the spirit of the 60’s and beyond. This should be a special night of music and mayhem.
