San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM for live performances in Downtown San Jose the week of August 29th, 2016 featuring: Alex Ivy, Jessica Johnson, Sonic Addiction, and Michael James System.
Alex Ivy (on West Coast Tour): Thursday, September 1st @ 7pm
"Most of these songs come from personal experiences and many were written in very dark times. My goal in writing music is to bring forth emotion and maybe even some healing. Sometimes we just need someone to identify with and that understands our situation. When you can't find a way to put the situation into words, maybe one of my songs can. As a cross-over artist my music commonly has a faith based message behind it but it can be interpreted many different ways. This first album is a collection of my own work covering a variety of subject matter. I hope it speaks to you."
Jessica Johnson Band: Friday, September 2nd @ 7pm
The Bay Area vocalist and songwriter has her audience held in the palm of her hand from the moment she walks on stage. With her rich sultry voice she melts your heart, leaving you yearning for more.
Jessica's 2014 IndieGoGo campaign was a great success thanks to the generous support of family, friends, and fans like you. With funds raised from the IdieGoGo campaign Jessica was able to realize her dream of recording original songs with a Producer in L.A., including "Love is Real". In 2015 Jessica traveled to Hawaii to shoot the video to "Love is Real", a perfect back drop for this island and reggae influenced single. Both the song and video are available for purchase on iTunes and you can check out the "Love is Real" video on VEVO and YouTube. Jessica's vision is to spread the message of love, peace, and joy through her music.
Sonic Addiction: Saturday, September 3rd @ 7pm
SONIC ADDICTION was formed in the Spring of 2009 with the goal of playing good music and having fun. The band performs a variety of fun rock and dance tunes at numerous events including: bars, festivals, private parties, wineries, and fund raisers. Fan quotes of "You play the music you forgot you loved!”, “I love your music!” and “We travel all the way from Brentwood just to hear you play,” motivate them to continue delivering a guaranteed fun time by letting people dance and enjoy great music.
Michael James System: Sunday, September 4th @ 1pm
I have enjoyed most genres of music since I was a kid. I bought my first guitar at 10 years-old, and was introduced to all kinds of music including folk, blues, jazz, and classical. However, my love of music has been seated in what I call “easy listening Rock and Roll".
