Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 10.06.49 PM

I started fooling around with drums at age 11 and by the age of 15 was playing and recording with rock bands in the SF Bay Area. My first recordings were made with a folk rock duo - Pat n' Al - at the old Coast Recording Studios in downtown San Francisco and Columbia "B" in Hollywood. This was fairly heady stuff for a fifteen year old from San Jose, CA.
A couple of years (and a couple of bands) later, I was playing with Teddy & His Patches, who recorded the legendary "garage psychedelic" tune Suzy Creamcheese.

Lisa Lindsley: Thursday, October 25th @ 6:00pm

Screen Shot 2018-04-23 at 3.28.42 PM

She has been called a glass of champagne, cool, refreshing, and a little bubbly.

Lisa Lindsley may be a latecomer to singing jazz, but the wealth of creative experience she brings to American Songbook gems turns familiar tunes into bracingly contemporary tales. She made an impressive debut with Everytime We Say Goodbye; her 2016 release, Long After Midnight, charted for three weeks on the U.S. FMQB Top 40, and remained in the Top 5 slot for 7 weeks on the CMJ Jazz charts.  And now Wouldn't It Be Loverly sits at #27 on the FMQB charts! Let's make it climb.

Mary Ellen started singing in front of audiences at the age of 12 and got into her first band right after High School graduation. There was never any doubt that singing would be her passion for her whole life. “I can't imagine my life without singing”, says Mary Ellen. “Its such a big part of who I am and what I am about.”

Mary Ellen is considered to be one of the most popular and diverse female vocalists in the Bay Area. Known for her powerful and emotional delivery and for her pure, versatile sound, Mary Ellen is a vocal force to be reckoned with.
