San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM for a live performance with the Kaye Bohler Band on Saturday, May 16th, 2015 @ 7:00pm in the Market Plaza in downtown San Jose.

Celebrated singer/songwriter Kaye Bohler has captivated audiences from Japan to Alaska for over 25 years. Her current tour schedule finds her all over California with her popular Rhythm and Blues Band. With this ensemble, Bohler is frequently called "The White Tina Turner" for the power and authenticity this true entertainer puts out in a performance. This last summer, she stole the show in her 6th return to the Monterey Blues Festival and continues to tour the concert and festival circuit promoting her latest CD: "Like a Flower" - featuring Robben Ford.


She posses a formidable triple threat as a singer, songwriter and bandleader with four CD's now under her belt. Her latest CD: "Like A Flower" has garnered tremendous, stellar reviews even comparing her songwriting to Carole King. Every melody and lyric of this CD was crafted by Kaye. "Like a Flower" also features the most notable and seasoned veterans of the Bay Area Rhythm and Blues Sound, including: Tommy Castro, Danny Caron, Garth Webber, Sammy Varela, and Nancy Wright.


This Southern California native now calls the SF Bay area her home. Locally, Kaye can be seen spreading her vocal chops in the jazz and contemporary music genres but holds "Blues" to be the power and authenticity that drives all the material she covers. With a three octave plus vocal range, a curvaceous silhouette, and a disarming wit on stage, she engages and draws the listener in like few other performers.

San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a live performance with Silicon Gulch Jazz Band on Friday, May 8th, 2015 @ 7:00pm in the market plaza in downtown san jose.

Silicon Gulch Jazz Band has been playing traditional jazz and early swing music since 1980. The band was started by Joe Bithell, a Bay Area musician with a colorful background, when Silicon Valley was in its infancy. He had a love for early jazz—a music with roots stretching back to the 1920’s and 1930’s—and founded this group to pay homage to this familiar sound. The band uses the same instrumentation found in early New Orleans jazz bands; trombone, cornet, and clarinet. Their rhythm section always includes banjo too. It’s happy music, great for listening, dancing, dining, and having a good time. Separate from this concert, Silicon Gulch Jazz Band plays every Tuesday night at The Swingin’ Door in San Mateo.
