His musical influences include Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Southside Johnny, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, 60's Stax and Motown groups. His guitar influences are Eric Clapton, Mike Campbell, Joe Bonamassa, Chuck Berry, James Burton and Pete Townshend.
Paul plays a custom Scott Lentz Telecaster, Fender Telecasters and occasionally a Gibson Les Paul guitar through Fender Bassman and VOX AC30 amps.
"Rock & Soul music is very important to a lot of people. Of course it's entertainment and is fun, but the personal connection that people have to timeless songs is very intense - that's what makes it timeless! Much of the fun in what we do is seeing people singing along, pumping their fists, or just smiling from ear to ear when we launch into a song that has that personal connection for them, or evokes a great memory - whether it was last week, last summer, or years ago. The magic moments are when a whole audience connects to a song and you can tell we're all connecting to a special time in our lives."
Chaz: Tuesday, March 13th @ 6:00pm

Lisa Lindsley Band: Wednesday, March 14th @ 6:00pm
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.
Bob Gonzalez Blues / Rock Jam: Thursday, March 15th @ 6:00pm
"Rock, roll, rhythm, and blues is what we started with in the early 60’s......we listened to and played it all. Music was not so focused as it is today. People danced and enjoyed it; musicians experimented. Call it what you like, it’s me and my friends doing what we do......”
Do you like the Blues? Do you like old school R&B? Do you like real Rock? You will love the Bob Gonzalez Band!
Primary Colors: Friday, March 16th @ 7:00pm
Vocalist Nate Pruitt and guitarist Rick Vandivier are Primary Colors, a jazz and blues duo often featuring other great musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area. Their music, although primarily jazz and blues, also includes elements of swing, soul, pop, spiritual, and Latin styles ... even a trademark deep Southern yodel.
California Clover Music Festival: Saturday, March 17th
PS3: Sunday, March 18th @ 2:00pm
P.S. is the acoustic duo comprised of well-known local musicians Peter Filice (OTR Band) and Steve Siacotos (The Groove Kings, Nite Cry). Spanning a broad range of acoustic versions of classic rock, folk, and R&B music from the 60's to present day and featuring excellent vocal harmonies and guitar skills, P.S. is the perfect choice for an acoustic or low-volume amplified setting. We specialize in taking audience requests! We also feature a 3-piece version called PS3 Trio which adds the amazing vocal and bass guitar talents of Chris Beveridge.
