The Coffis Brothers
This is pure roots rock, focused on melody, harmony, rhythm and mood. There are echoes of The Byrds, Tom Petty and The Jayhawks, and from years of touring, they have honed their sound into shimmering, high-energy rock and roll.

Sailing in on a wave of blissful sound, Kanekoa has become a global phenomenon over the last several years. Powered by electric ukuleles and exotic rhythms, these ukulele masters ride the wave of island roots with jam band energy, creating a sound they call Hawaiian jam-rock. Bill Kreutzmann goes so far as to call them, “the Hawaiian Grateful Dead.” David Hidalgo of Los Lobos says, “These guys scare me. They are that good.”

A.J. Lee & Blue Summit
Pure, beautiful American music. Soaring harmonies, top notch picking and strumming as well as a healthy respect and reverence for the classic country, bluegrass and folk music of the past all add up to a band who are masters of the genre.

Barry "The Fish" Melton Band
Having played together since the early 1980s, the Barry “The Fish” Melton Band continues to uphold the tradition of San Francisco rock & roll that put the Bay Area on the musical map in the mid-1960s. Barry is the former lead guitarist/singer for Country Joe & The Fish, and founding member of The Dinosaurs. He performed at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, leading the “No Rain” chant.

Corte Madera Town Band
They play classical concert band compositions, musicals, rock and roll, blues, jazz, marches and much more. They come to practice with a smile and there are always a few laughs.

Soul Mechanix blends groove-based Soul improv and progressive Funk drawing from a diverse universe of influences.
July 24, 2022 | Piccolo Pavilion, Menke Park
Los Mendoza y Friends
Los Mendoza y Friends is comprised of native San Franciscans with a love for all types of dance music. A smoking percussion section and sizzling horns and funky rhythm section create a musical gumbo, consisting of Brazilian, Classic Soul, Latin Rock, R&B, some Cuban, and a bit of Salsa, sprinkled with some Classic Rock and Funk! The Mendoza family has two generations in the band and always features surprise musical guests!
July 31, 2022 | Piccolo Pavilion, Menke Park
Originally from Santa Cruz, California, where she won the region’s innovative creator-oriented NEXTies “Musician of the Year” award, Taylor Rae currently resides in Austin, Texas. The guitarist/singer/songwriter’s eclectic style traverses folk, R&B, jazz and blues. She says, “I call it ‘Soul & Roll’ – a blend of roots music genres from the earliest days of American music.”

Pardon the Interruption
PTI is a 4-piece band from the SF Bay Area. They write and play music to "disrupt" the status quo with energetic and upbeat funk, rock, soul, reggae, and blues -- original songs (and some great covers) that ask us to get real and look at many of the more complex socio-political issues of our time, connect with each other -- and dance.

Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88's with Special Guest Nancy Wright
Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88’s are the torch bearers of a great American musical heritage. Taking their inspiration from the great jump n’ boogie outfits and swingin’ little big bands of the 40’s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock n’ roll.
August 21, 2022 | Piccolo Pavilion, Menke Park
Just a bunch of guys that love to play music, especially in their hometown of Marin. Bubba's Taxi plays mostly covers of rock and blues.
August 28, 2022 | Piccolo Pavilion, Menke Park
An anything-can-happen mix of stellar songwriting alternating with blistering blues-rock. When Click brings it down with the strings-inflected “Blue Skies”, you can hear every breath in the room; when he launches into the infectious “Wait My Turn,” there’s not one person who can stay seated.
