San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM for a live performance with the Bear Lincoln Band on Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 @ 7:00pm in the Market Garage.

Listing Talking Heads, James Brown, and Vicente Fernandez as musical influences does more to confuse than to clarify, but one listen to Bear Lincoln and all is forgiven. The Berkeley-based quarted whose members describe themselves as "musical disciples" draws from several different musical wells and the results are surprisingly good. Blending an upbeat, don't-take-yourself-too-seriously vibe, with clarinet- and bass- driven music that makes Klezmer music seem tame, this band is a surefire party starter that's on its way to bigger things. - Santa Cruz Weekly.

Bear Lincoln is a quartet of dedicated musical disciples whose influences range from James Brown to Talking Heads to Vicente Fernandez and back again. At a Bear Lincoln show, you will find quirky, danceable, upbeat originals and a top notch cover or two; these boys pride themselves on putting on a fun show.

Based in Berkeley, California, Bear Lincoln performs all around the golden state and are planning to introduce themselves to the other 49 very soon. Stay tuned, because these gentlemen are in it to win it.
