Soul singer and lifetime creative, Mitchell Lujan is a Bay Area native songwriter and producer with a definitive yet intimate presence. Mitch connects with people and their greater surroundings on a mental, emotional and physical level (dancing, of course). Mitchell draws influence from his Neo-Soul youth and the Alternative Rock he was drawn to once discovering guitar as a teen. His sound is most often compared to smooth vocalists John Legend and Allen Stone while his band’s experimental instrumentation is reminiscent of Incubus. His past performances include venues from Slim’s of San Francisco to Rockwood Music Hall of New York City. With over 10,000 views on “Blankets,” the single has sparked West Coast attention and inspired his continuing evolution as an artist. Mitchell’s “Subject to Change” EP is available now for download and streaming on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and more.

GRAMMY Nominated, Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of other musicians and music lovers since he was a toddler. Andre’s French Creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana although he was born and reared in northern California. Michael Tisserand, author of The Kingdom of Zydeco, considered the definitive book on the history of Zydeco music, wrote, “In America, great migrations produce great music. Just as Delta musicians took Highway 61 to Chicago and electrified their blues, so did the Creoles and Cajuns migrate to California and establish vital dance communities. Now the California scenes rival anything back home in Louisiana, and that’s due to players like Andre Thierry, a standard bearer for the new generation. Thierry is among the best of both the West Coast and the Gulf Coast, and he combines youthful vigor with a mature appreciation for his inherited tradition.”

The Burroughs Brothers Band: Friday, September 23rd @ 6:30pm @ the Garage Patio Stage
