Matt Jaffe
Matt Jaffe
Matt Jaffe is a rock & roll singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on countless open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started taking music (a little bit) more seriously when Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record.

Since then, Matt has continued to churn out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturate the market with gigs (opening for the likes of Mavis Staples, Jackie Greene and Blues Traveler), and collaborate with the likes of Chuck Prophet and Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T's.

With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza. Fresh off the release of his second LP, California's Burning, Matt Jaffe is already back in the studio, street-teaming with the best of them to bring the guitar gospel to the masses.
Kissin' Cuzzins Featuring Miss Connie Champagne
Kissin' Cuzzins  Featuring Miss Connie Champagne
San Francisco legend Miss Connie Champagne has been kickin' around the hoity-toity cabaret scene in for many years, & won a lot of fancy awards. What a lot of folks don't know is that Connie is a country gal at heart! Growing up in rural Placer County, as a kid Connie sang at the Nashville West club, boarded horses, & even took rodeo barrel-racin' lessons with country great Lynne Anderson! She & her punk-rock guitar co-horts, Kissin' Cuzzins--Mia D'Abruzzi (Frightwig), Dave Dick (the Witnesses), Mike McKevitt (Jean Genies), along with kick-ass rhythm section guys Tim Perdue (Velvetta) on bass & Michael Tornatore on drums-- celebrate the music they all grew up with--the Bakersfield, classic & sometimes psychedelic country sounds of Tammy Wynette & George Jones, Buck Owens, Lee Hazelwood with Nancy Sinatra & many, many more. Get ready for an evening of "cryin' in your beer" songs & sassy, hell-raisin' fun!
Macerator
Macerator
Local country band made up of old school San Francisco musicians.
Nashville Honeymoon
Nashville Honeymoon
Born in a school auditorium in Berkeley, California and nurtured in live music venues on both sides of the Bay, Nashville Honeymoon is led by Hank Maninger and Lynne Maes, whose shared love of country music led to a creative partnership onstage and off.

Nashville Honeymoon’s music is a modern reworking of the classic country sounds of the 50s and 60s. Their songwriting draws on country, rockabilly, and honkytonk traditions. Hank and Lynne bring the best of traditional country duets to life, reminding listeners of George and Tammy, Loretta and Conway, Porter and Dolly, and Waylon and Jessi.
