Gary Gates: Thursday March 17th @ 7:00pm
Aside from Neil Young, there is no brighter star in the famed West Coast hamlet of La Honda than Gary Gates. A veteran of the Bay Area music scene, Gary has been playing "jam band" music longer than the moniker has existed. In 1976, Gary toured as the opening act for Neil's legendary Northern California Bar Tour. As a member of the popular Loma Mar Store Band, later Rhythm Method, and now fronting a band of his own name, Gary has picked up more and more fans and admirees over the decades. Yet wider-spread stardom has eluded Gary, possibly because of his frequent "staycations" in Hawaii and Thailand. Regardless, the Gary Gates Band is arguably today's Bay Area's hottest unsigned jam band.
Sonic Blue w/ Joy Bonner: Friday March 18th @ 7:00pm
Joy Bonner is a high energy, vocalist who keeps her audience involved with a custom repertoire of songs spanning from the 1940’s to the current hits of today! She has performed for hundreds of events from fundraisers to corporate celebrations and private parties.

Lara Price Band: Saturday March 19th @ 7:00pm
She’s an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that demands your attention- smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It’s no wonder her music transcends the blues and crosses a line into music that is unequivocally superb.
Wil Roberts Duo: Sunday March 20th @ 1:00pm
Wil creates an atmosphere of musical excellence where ever he performs his mix of R&B, coffee house, and adult contemporary pop. His beautiful voice and relaxed style on guitar or keyboard set him apart from other entertainers and make him a favorite at intimate events.
