Friday, September 19, 2014 -- The Pam & Jeri Show and Laura Zucker

                         

                                  The Pam & Jeri Show

pam jeri

 

Founding members of the Bay Area's renowned all female powerhouse Americana band Blame Sally, Pam and Jeri occasionally appear in their original duo format, The Pam and Jeri Show. Their original songs have had national airplay including feature and rotation on San Francisco's KFOG and Starbucks XM Cafe.

For over a decade Pam and Jeri have been rocking West Coast audiences with their energetic, inspired performance which ranges from mournful ballad to sweet love song to blazing acoustic soul.  Fans comment that they are amazed that "so much noise comes from just those two girls".  These two accomplished instrumentalist / singers combine strikingly different approaches to create a distinct and compelling sound.

Saturday, October 24, 2014 -- Red Moon Road

redmoonroad storm tb

 

Born in a storm on a wild Canadian lake, Red Moon Road came into its own on the trails between coast and coast. All credit goes to the chemistry, and to the magic that happens when the Winnipeg band's two Daniels - jazz-trained Daniel Jordan and bilingual prog-rock vet Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner - strum up the strings to support twilight-voiced singer Sheena Rattai.

From living rooms to folk fest stages, the three have charmed fans from coast to coast with their lush and lively take on modern roots, peppered always by bright stage banter, exquisite harmonies and masterfully told stories. As you can hear on their brand-new EP "Tales from the Whiteshell" or their acclaimed eponymous debut album, it's all sort of rich and warm and deeply familiar, like a campfire crackling wherever the microphones stand: even if it's your first time in the audience, you come as a friend of this band.
