Corte Madera Summer Concerts - Terrie Odabi

June 25, 2023 | Blues & Soul

Terrie Odabi

Terrie Odabi is easily the most dynamic blues and soul woman to have emerged in the Bay Area since Etta James came out of San Francisco’s Fillmore District in the Fifties. Terrie has a powerful set of pipes, writes terrific tunes, leads a kicking band and has onstage movements that perfectly match the rhythms of her material. Surely stardom awaits her.

Corte Madera Summer Concerts - Kanekoa

July 2, 2023 | Uke-Powered Hawaiian Jam Rock

Kanekoa

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.”

Spike Sikes & His Awesome Hot Cakes

Like hotcakes themselves, the music Spike’s Awesome Hotcakes plays goes by many names. Soul. Swing. Rhythm & Blues. Jazz. Jump. It’s a sound that’s classic and simple, but when it’s done right, it hits the spot, and has you grinning from ear to ear.
