Dan Lebowitz, lovingly known as simply LEBO, has been a steady face on the California music scene for years, most notably for being the force and co-founder of the beloved ALO. But there’s a newer, more specific scene that Lebowitz has begun to readily embrace; The Bay Area jam culture pre-dates the guitarist and vocalist by years, but thanks to a younger batch of musicians playing and collaborating at venues like Terrapin Crossroads and Sweetwater Music Hall, the scene has never been more vibrant. Lebowitz revels in the inclusive and collaborative aspect that is being fostered in the area. Really, the question should be who has LEBO not jammed with? From High Sierra Music Festival to Magic Gravy, a side project with members of The Motet, LEBO is one of the hardest working musicians in the local and national jam band scene.

Jeff Pehrson most notably an Oakland native and wine "enthusiast" has a rich history as a premier Bay Area singer - songwriter. His songs are iconic and memorable and his voice is of an angel who might have wandered down a dark alley, soaring and devilishly inviting in the same breath........Jeff made his mark with the beloved Box Set which still is as vital and relevant as they ever were. Jeff founded the alt-rock band Fall Risk and was a member of Furthur with the Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and DSO's John Kadlecik. You can see Jeff hit the stage in the Bay Area or walking on Piedmont Ave in Oakland CA.

~Chuck Prophet shapes his restless career with inimitable subtle flair: a vivid parade of razor-edged one-liners camouflaged in a slack-jawed drawl, 
songs about heartbreak and everyman heroism, 
drenched in twisted lines of rude Telecaster.

~At eighteen he left his native Whittier, CA for San Francisco, which he still calls home, and before too long joined Green on Red, a gang of interloping Arizonans with no small impact on L.A.'s Paisley Underground. During an eight-year run with Green on Red, he cut his first major label session with legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson, burned through a couple of big record deals, and ventured a debut solo effort, Brother Aldo (1990). These were the first steps in the career that shaped Prophet into a prolific rock 'n' roll classicist.

~He has written with a wide rage of artists from Dan Penn to Alejandro Escovedo (the 2008 LP, Real Animal), laid down tracks on sessions for everyone from Warren Zevon to Kelly Willis and taken the stage with Jim Dickinson, Lucinda Williams and Aimee Mann, to name a few. Prophet's production credits include Willis' Translated From Love (2007) and working on Jace Everett's ("Bad Things" / True Blood) new release Red Revelations. He's heard his own tunes performed by legends like Solomon Burke and Heart and his songs have charted on both country ("I'm Gone," a co-write with Kim Richey, on the debut album of country starlet Cyndi Thompson) and AAA radio ("Summertime Thing," from 2002's No Other Love, was a lazy radio anthem).

~
~Chuck Prophet describes his new album ‘Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins’ as a “California Noir,” an album inspired partly by the mysterious death of rocker Bobby Fuller in LA in 1966. “California has always represented the Golden Dream, and it’s the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs. 

Gritty and jangly, Chuck’s album features 13 original works that explore doomed love, loneliness and fast paced violence via Chuck’s muscular songwriting craft. They include songs about Fuller, the death of David Bowie, and the killing of a San Francisco security guard named Alex Nieto that drew international headlines as “Death By Gentrification.”

‘Bobby Fuller’ finds Chuck coming full circle. He cut the album to tape at Hyde Street Studio in San Francisco, which also happens to be the same studio where Prophet did his very first recording session, while still in high school. Chuck brought out his ’64 Stratocaster for the sessions, conjuring a sound that Jonathan Richman once described as “gasoline in the sand, like a motorcycle at a hot dog stand.” He’s backed by The Mission Express, a band featuring his wife Stephanie Finch (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Kevin White (bass), Vicente Rodriguez (drums, vocals) and James DePrato (guitar). 

Lead single “Bad Year For Rock and Roll” is a timely homage to rock greats lost in 2016: “The Thin White Duke took a final bow / there’s one more star in the heavens now/I’m all dressed up in a mohair suit / watching Peter Sellers thinking of you.” “Jesus Was A Social Drinker” starts as a punchy mid tempo rocker with clanking cowbell before unfurling into an explosive, psychedelic coda. “Alex Nieto” is what Chuck refers to as his first protest song. It’s “an homage to a good man who should still be alive,” says Chuck.

Bobby Black is the living legend of West Coast pedal steel guitar. Born in 1934, Bobby's long career spans classic country (Hank Williams, Jim Reeves) through country-rock (Commander Cody, New Riders of the Purple Sage) and the Western Swing revival (Asleep at the Wheel, Lost Weekend). 

Jill Rogers (Crying Time, Imperial Jazz Co.) is a singer’s singer with superb phrasing and torch ballad pipes, who tells the heartfelt story of each song she approaches.

Guitarist Myles Boisen, a key player in the Bay Area music scene, is a virtuoso of juke joint licks on the six string and lap steel as well as leader of the Miniwatt String Trio and Orchestra Nostalgico.

Multi-instrumentalist and singer Tony Marcus has long been a mainstay of the San Francisco Bay Area acoustic music scene, playing everything from folk music to the jazz in bands including Leftover Dreams, Cats & Jammers. Tony has also been a member of the Cheap Suit Serenaders since 1979, and performed and recorded with Laurie Lewis, Kate Brislin, Geoff Muldaur, Kate Wolf, Frank Wakefield, The Sons of the San Joaquin, Rose Maddox, Patsy Montana, Lost Weekend Western Swing Band and many others.
