“Expansive as an Eastern Oregon Sunset.” New York Times best-selling music writer Charles R. Cross  

Thu. Oct. 18 at 7:30pm
$10 adv./$10 door seated <21 w/parent

Frank Barter writes, sings, and performs like a guy who's been beat up and still won't quit, like a guy who's been dumped but still has hope for a happy ending. Many of the songs on his Valley Entertainment release "Ready" feature gravel and silk, triumph and longing, and celebration and regret. Produced by Grammy Award winning Producer, Scott Mathews, Frank doesn't hold back for anyone or anything. New York Times best-selling music writer Charles R. Cross once described Frank Barter songs as “Expansive as an Eastern Oregon Sunset.” If you've never seen one of those, they're burning in the middle, sitting on top of a wheat field, with a golden glow on each side stretching the horizon forever. That's where Frank Barter takes you. He has toured the west coast and Pacific Northwest extensively and opened for Chuck Berry, John Haitt, Bonnie Raitt, Leon Russell, Johnny Copeland, Curtis Selgado, and Duffy Bishop to name a few. “It's possible to compare Frank Barter to any number of distinctive singer/songwriters: Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Bob Seger are names Barter's honest, simple-yet-complex songs most often evoke.” - Seattle Times

Sat. Oct. 27 at 2pm
$17 adv./$20 door seated <21 w/parent

The zeitgeist is a moving target, and Chris Barron has always been a crack shot. The New York songwriter is no longer the debutant who set out on the circuit's sharp end in 1988 with $100, a battered acoustic and a headful of the alt-rock anthems that would elevate Spin Doctors to global stardom. He's a veteran approaching 50, living in a world changed beyond recognition, compelled to write the music that chronicles the here-and-now. As far back as he can remember, he's had a hunger driving him onward, towards something just out of reach. Now it propels him to  Angels and One-Armed Jugglers, the culmination of a lifetime's craft and a record both contemporary and classic.

Amy Unauthorized began as a dream to put a soul band together. Drummer and Musical Director Cory Graves had always appreciated the genre as a whole, and later fell in love with the idea of doing a project based around Amy Winehouse's music. Though the seed of an idea was there, he found it difficult to find the right people for this project. However, with the help of guitarist and friend Chris Motter, Bay Area bassist Jacob Freedman, and the inspired recruitment of their peers from around the Bay Area, the band was soon assembled - all that was left was to bring this wonderful music back to the stage.

PRESENTED WITH SNAZZY PRODUCTIONS

Misner & Smith: a combination of soaring vocal harmonies, extremely tight instrumental arrangements, and story-filled, poetic songwriting, adding up to some of the most electrifying music on the scene today. The band's sound harkens back to the bedrock of American rock & folk, but the diversity of styles and genres are one of the things that set M&S apart. They can shake the walls like a freight train and then quiet the room to a whisper in a single song. With two singers who could easily lead a band independently, Sam and Megan sing with one voice, with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment. 

Hilary & Kate: There's something timeless and stirring about the music of Hilary Watson and Kate Feldtkeller,  As their two voices, guitar, and violin intertwine, they conjure up echoes of time-honored musical traditions rooted in folk, bluegrass, and gospel while putting a fresh spin on these sounds as only young artists can. In early 2012, Hilary and Kate began playing and recording together; Hilary was already seasoned from years of traveling and performing both solo acoustic and with her full band, but Kate brought something new and unique with her voice and violin that instantly clicked. The year ended up being one of rich blessing for Hilary and Kate, with extensive tours throughout the US, Italy, the UK, Hungary, Norway, the Netherlands, and Germany, and a December tour in Hawaii to finish up the year. Hilary and Kate's combined talents make for a fresh and compelling musical partnership that is not to be missed. Catch them if you can in a live setting where the chemistry of their songwriting, storytelling, deft musicanship, and rich singing remind the listener of how music can speak to us like nothing else.

Tell Me More, is a spoken word performance group that believes in the power of self-expression and creativity to entertain and transform. This deep and hysterical incarnation of authentic storytelling, “Sex, Drugs and Rock Stars,” features themes including but not limited to: being attacked by wild dogs on acid in India, sleeping with a Rock Star, navigating the world of anti-depressants, being a late bloomer, keeping oneself “vibrant, “and much, much more.

Stories, are universal (archetypal) and witnessing people share intimate material thru story telling touches the collective spirit of humanity. Hearing another's story allows us recognize the common bonds we share.

Laurie Guerin  is a late bloomer who believes that the best stories come from everyday life. 

Co-producer of Tell Me More, she is honored to collaborate with openhearted people who find the courage to be vulnerable and have something to say.

Nicolette Nasr  is an artist. She escaped from Palo Alto to find her true self in Santa Cruz here acting, writing, family and community is her focus. 

Sarah MacEwan  is an therapist who believes in self-expression as a path to healing and wholeness. Sarah loves being on stage, talking about feelings and any joke with “your mom” in the punchline.

Stacey Platt  migrated from the east coast six years ago and still can't shake being early to things.

Ed Croteau  likes to fish, play guitar and provide a fun and comfortable living environment for his dogs.

New Album is
“Rifles & Rosary Beads”

Wed. Dec. 5 at 7:30pm
$22 adv./$25 door seated <21 w/parent

“YOU'LL BE HARD-PRESSED TO HEAR A MORE POWERFULLY MOVING WORK THAN RIFLES & ROSARY BEADS THIS YEAR — OR ANY OTHER.”   LA TIMES

"The importance of this effort cannot be overstated."
- Country Standard Time

"The album's honesty and insight into an often overlooked aspect of American democracy - the on-the-ground experiences of soldiers and, especially, the aftermath of their time in combat - is a gift in a contemporary moment full of chatter and political rhetoric." NPR World Café

"Rifles & Rosary Beads' gives veterans and their spouses a voice, a chance to find in song the words that foster growth in the midst of trauma---Gauthier and her co-writers deliver an album of songs that momentarily make the burdens of these men and women lighter, for in these songs they've found the care and empathy of a listening stranger who sits not in judgment but embraces in love."  No Depression

Wildcat Mountain Ramblers: Fun and spontaneous performances of high energy bluegrass and beyond. Requests, audience participation, dancing, joy, laughter, and even tears. Y'all come! We love Flatt and Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Jim and Jesse, The Seldom Scene, The Steel Drivers, the Carter Family, Hazel Dickens, the Osborne Brothers, Hank Williams, the Grateful Dead, Gillian Welch

Brookdale Bluegrass Band has been around entertaining since 2012, good bluegrass, ol timey, and progressive originals.

Freebo & Alice Howe:  Freebo is a genuine folk, rock and blues icon who, after over 40 years of recording and touring with many of the great artists of our time (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Neil Young, & many more) is regarded as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of today. He has appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show, The Midnight Special, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. At once timeless and original, Boston singer-songwriter Alice Howe joins a soulful, impeccably tuned voice with crafted poetry.  A lifelong songwriter, Alice's musical sensibility lies in '60s folk and '70s Southern California songwriters, with comparisons drawn to the pure, distilled sounds of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. As a performer, Alice is sure-footed and captivating, familiar to her audience from the very first song.

2pm Matinee 

Jim & Meredith & Suzy radiate charm, humor, sophistication and super talent

PRESENTED WITH SNAZZY PRODUCTIONS

Sat. Dec. 8 at 2pm
$17 adv./$20 door seated <21 w/parent

Jim Kweskin  is the founder of the legendary 1960s Jim Kweskin Jug Band. During the five years they were together, they successfully transformed the sounds of pre-World War II rural music into a springboard for their good-humored performances. Their imitators were legion, including a San Francisco jug band that became the Grateful Dead, a Los Angeles jug band that became the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a New York jug band that became the Lovin' Spoonful. No other group attained their unique blend of youthful energy and antiquarian expertise, tight musicianship, loose camaraderie, and infectious swing. Since his Jug band days Jim has maintained a remarkably consistent musical vision, continuing to explore traditional folk and blues with the sophisticated sensibility of a jazz musician, and jazz with the communal simplicity of a folk artist. There's an endearing sense of good humor to Kweskin's interpretations that makes his performances a delight. Because of his vast repertoire and love of the music, Kweskin is recognized as one of the best interpreters of the great American songbook. Kweskin says "I don't cover songs, I uncover them".

Meredith Axelrod:  is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who specializes in American roots music. Delightfully engaging and unassumingly comic, Meredith Axelrod envisions the limitless potential of early twentieth century music, whether it be Ragtime, Music Hall, Pop Standard, Boogie Woogie, Tin Pan Alley, String band, Jazz, Country, Blues or Jug Band music, and embodies the spirit that brought the music into existence in the first place.  Her vocal style is unusual, probably because she learned to sing by listening to the way folks did it a century ago – through the medium of 78-rpm records. As a solo artist, she has headlined her own shows at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood, CA, opened for the Cheap Suit Serenaders and for David Bromberg, and toured as far as Australia and New Zealand.  

Suzy Thompson:  is one of the rare musicians today who has mastered the acoustic blues violin, following in the footsteps of earlier masters like Lonnie Chatmon, Clifford Hayes and Eddie Anthony. Suzy is unique in her ability to combine fiddle, vocals and guitar in the blues and ragtime idioms. She has performed and recorded with such renowned artists as Mike Seeger, Darol Anger, Laurie Lewis, Beausoleil, Peter Rowan, Maria Muldaur, Jody Stecher, Del Rey, Geoff Muldaur, Jim Kweskin, Alice Gerrard, D.L. Menard, Jane Voss, Rinde Eckert, the Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band, Sukay, and Frankie Armstrong, among others.

Their adaptations of traditional holiday tunes are beautiful — I can't describe their “Noel” in words, other than to say it will convince any hater of Christmas music to think otherwise.” - Marian Liu, SEATTLE TIMES (Seattle, WA). Around the world with Gypsy Soul. Authentic and excellent are the words most often used to describe Gypsy Soul and their music. The duo's multicultural heritage helps inform both their message and sound, attracting audiences with their soulful blend of Acoustic Rock, Pop, Blues and Jazz. But it's the stories about the songs and their experiences traveling the country and the world as first generation immigrants from first generation immigrants that makes their shows so personal and memorable. 

 "A musical marriage that spans the globe, a self-invented, organic sound that has roots in rock and soul, country and folk, blues--- with vocals and lyrics intertwined like a pair of life-long partners inspiring others to follow their dreams.” - Hits Daily Double Magazine. Like its creators, their music is much like fine fusion cuisine; Italian, Irish, South African and Ukrainian to be precise. As with any work of art, their music is born from heartache and struggle, love and determination infused with many textures, nuance and flavors. Their message is both universal and intimate, familiar yet otherworldly.  “Gypsy Soul is gourmet music for music lovers.” - K-LOS Radio

Cello like you've
never heard before

Sun. Dec. 16 at 2pm
$20 adv./$20 door seated <21 w/parent

PRESENTED WITH SNAZZY PRODUCTIONS

The Dirty Cello band comes back to perform in Santa Cruz.Since their last show in Santa Cruz, they've been all over the world collecting stories, new songs, and a couple misadventures. Come on out to Michael's on Main, for the bluesiest cello you've ever heard backed by a hard rockin' rhythm section. New songs, new stories, old favorites, old songs, and never a dull moment. From China to Italy, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you've never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin' bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!  “When lead guitar is replaced by the sound of hot licks on a cello, blues, rock and bluegrass rise to a new dimension. Dirty Cello — a four-piece band from San Francisco — makes its style of string music to inspire audiences to swing, sway and dance.” Nick Diamantides, Ashland Daily Tidings. "Dirty Cello's music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical." Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine. "The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman's playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you'll wonder why more bands don't have a cellist." Good Times Santa Cruz "The group seamlessly careens from blues to bluegrass and rock in a way that really shouldn't make sense but somehow does." LA Times

Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Vocal & Ukulele Master, and Grammy Award Winner

Thu. Jan. 3 at 7:30pm
$17 adv./$20 door seated <21 w/parent

Come early or KALUA PORK HAWAIIAN DINNER SPECIAL
  (note that tickets include entry to the show – Dinner Special is a separate charge)

Led Kaapana's  mastery of stringed instruments, particularly slack key guitar, and his extraordinary baritone and leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) voices, have made him a musical legend. He has been thrilling audiences for more than 40 years. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal corps of Led Heads  from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawaii. Recognition by his peers earned Led 4 Grammy nominations in his own right and 2 wins on slack key compilations.   Like so many Hawaiians, Led grew up in a musical family. In the tiny black sand bay village of Kalapana,  there were few distractions. "We didn't have electricity, no television, not even much radio," says Led. "So we entertained ourselves. You could go to any house and everybody was playing music." Often everybody was playing music at a backyard party, many of which lasted for days. "People played in shifts, taking over when somebody went to sleep," Led recalls. "You'd fall asleep to the music, wake up and the music was still playing. That was the best alarm clock I ever had!" 

Fran Guidry's CD called Kaleponi, is all solo acoustic slack key instrumentals, mostly traditional pieces, with a few choice originals. Fran will accompany Led for an unforgettable evening of Hawaiian music and more.
