An SF local of 8 years, Nate draws on an eclectic mix of funk, soul, country, and originals for acoustic shows. Primarily the lead guitarist for The Silk Road Truckers, Nate has spent the past few months in the studio with the boys recording a new album (shoutout to Lucky). Outside of rehearsals and studio time, Nate can be found at his 9 to 5 or bbqing in the backyard.
One Man Banjo. A one man show.
A ! 1manBanjo ! show is energetic, incites movement, dancing, the clapping of hands, participation & a couple of sing-alongs. Combines old time tunes in a unique rhythmic fashion which is a vibrant experience.
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.
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.
Bio: Embracing the folksy pop of artists such as Suzanne Vega and Sheryl Crow, Aprylle Gilbert combines stirring melodies with words of inspiration, joy, and – at times –sadness. In a voice both pensive and sultry that often hints at an underlying self-consciousness, Aprylle takes the listener on a trek that is semi-autobiographical yet familiar to most of us. To that end, much of Aprylle’s music is uplifting and inspirational.
Skillet Licorice is the latest project from San Francisco Bay Area roots-music luminaries Elise Engelberg and Matt Knoth. The duo’s talents are showcased beautifully on their new self-titled CD which draws on their diverse experiences playing in numerous string bands over the years in a dizzying array of folk genres. Whether they’re playing hot fiddle breakdowns, slinky blues, sparkling banjo breaks, ragtime or dreamy waltzes the duo displays an impressive command of styles and techniques that comes from deep study and loving dedication to America’s folk traditions. With the help of their talented friends they’ve put together an album of songs that is essentially traditional, yet with a modern approach that is anything but a stodgy museum piece. Skillet Licorice is hot, sweet, and just a bit greasy!
RACHEL & JESSE
Rachel Parsons and Jesse Strickman are friends from Oakland who love making music! They combine poignant songwriting with gorgeous harmonies over a backdrop of jaunty acoustic guitar. With some tasteful, light percussion and a sprinkle of harmonica these two put together a fun performance.
