Lost Dog FoundJuly 8 Big Band
Lost Dog Found

Lost Dog Found was voted "Best Band" by the readers of the Press Democrat in 2013, and took 1st Place (and will perform a headline show in 2015) at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk/Live105 Battle of the Bands in 2014.

Houston JonesAugust 12 Americana
Houston Jones
This San Francisco based high-octane Americana quintet performs an original repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel.

Houston Jones invites you into a world of musical virtuosity and storytelling that ranges from the myths of ancient Greece to the red dirt back roads of Waskom Texas. The acoustic heart of the band beats with the passion of five lifetimes lived in a musical landscape of gospel revival tents to Irish pubs, New Orleans to the Great Plains to Motown, a church in Cape Cod to a punk club in Berkeley.

All this translates into an explosive, wide-ranging performance that will touch your heart, expand your mind, and get your feet moving of their own volition.
