Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks to everyone that supports live music and the bands who are motivated to travel to places far and wide to entertain us!

If you are in the Petaluma area this Thanksgiving, come to Zodiacs and join Highway Poets, Frankie Boots & the County Line, Marty O’Reilly and Dixie Giants on Wednesday, Nov. 26th. This is one heck of a show! The perfect way to start the long weekend and give THANKS 🙂

Then what better way to dance off those Thanksgiving goodies than dancing to Royal Jelly Jive at the Seahorse in Sausalito on Friday, Nov. 28th. Or you can catch Dgiin in San Francisco at the Milk Bar!

Saffell will be hitting the keys at the Milk Bar in San Francisco on Saturday, Nov. 29th.

Be sure to stop by the Milk Bar on Sunday, Nov. 30th for some serious dancing with La Mandanga!



Let’s stay warm dancing to our favorite bands! ~

I loved hearing First Aid Kit at the Fox Theatre in Oakland last week. Boy can those girls sing!

Another lady with an exquisite voice and rockin’ band is Lauren from Royal Jelly Jive. They hit the road last week with gigs in SoCal, and now they’re in Arizona. You can check them out tonight in Scottsdale at the Rogue Bar, tomorrow in Phoenix at Cactus Jacks, Thursday at Creek Side Inn in Santa Barbara and at Genghis Cohen on Saturday, Nov. 22nd in Los Angeles!

Dgiin are supporting the French American Charter School with their Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration dinner show on Friday, Nov. 21st at Showcase Cafe in the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds. You can buy tickets here:

Our good friends Delhi 2 Dublin are back in the States and are at Zanzibar in Los Angeles tonight, and then at 755 After Dark (Aubergine) in Sebastopol on Saturday night as the headliner for Little Tribe Foundation’s fundraiser. Other acts on the line-up include Zack Darling, Horses Heaven, Hoytus & the Cup of Sunshine Band, Trinity Rayne and more….. Little Tribe is a non profit supporting children in need. Come and support this awesome cause. It’s a good idea to get your tickets now as this is bound to sell out.
