Frances Ancheta is a San Francisco based musician, singer/songwriter, and performer. With two albums to date and a third one on the way, she has been performing original music and her own interpretations of covers for the past 17 years. Frances Ancheta continues to reach fans around the world with her distinct and enjoyable musical style, described by many as “tropical new wave folk”, reflecting the eclectic sounds she grew up with as a Filipina American in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Stevie Q’Pons has many a brainchild. Miracle Fish is one of them. For people that love guitar, rhythm, quirk, and melody, this guy has your back. Stevie has played in many bands, including Dead End Boyfriend, Trixie and the Skates, and Maximum Poltergeist. Hailing from somewhere back east, he’s a maverick on the guitar, a lark on vocals, and totally entertaining.
FULTON STREET STAGE
E.G. Phillips is a San Francisco based songwriter who creates lyric-driven songs with his own special blend of whimsy and cinematic imagery. He comes from a country called the Midwest, has a degree in Geography, and his favorites include Bob Dylan and the Kinks as well as Duke Ellington and that crowd. Phillips has been the “Songwriter-in-Residence” at Bazaar Cafe (September 2015 and April 2017) and a featured performer at San Francisco venues such as the Hotel Utah, The Lost Church, Neck of the Woods, PianoFight, and Cafe International. “Ducks With Pants” is the name of his so-called fake (and sometimes real) band.
An inter-generational band, Brother Spellbinder is the vision of Alzara Getz. As the daughter of rock drummer, Dave Getz, original drummer of Big Brother & The Holding Co. (Janis Joplin), she developed a taste for passionate music worn on the sleeve. She formed Brother Spellbinder with guitarist Jamie Wilson. Wilson was an early graduate from San Francisco’s School of the Arts High School and counters Alzara’s dulcet voice with a dollop of gristle in his vocals and a rhythm guitar that resonates with an earthy om.
Oakland-native singer-songwriter Jesse Loren Strickman is known for potent lyrics and powerfully minimal acoustic music. Annually touring the Pacific West Coast, Strickman has played everywhere from intimate cafes to outdoor amphitheaters and festivals. He’s opened for national and world acts such as Damien Jurado, CAKE, The T Sisters and many more. Emotionally charged vocals sail over jaunty acoustic chords in songs about personal love and the power of social change.
