The Stan Erhart Band: Thursday, June 30th @ 7pm


Stan Erhart's roots go back to the Kansas City family farm; where hard work & play were accompanied by John Deere tractors, V-8 cars, country guitars, & the harmonica tunes his Dad wooed Mom with. Stan soon picked up his brother's baritone horn, following it up with guitar, vocals, & woodwinds. He spent his college years getting a music degree in Michigan while driving to Indiana, Chicago, and Wisconsin for gigs -- later moving to Chicago for a full schedule of club work & private lessons -- and finally relocating to San Francisco to form one of the hardest working bands in the Bay Area. They have a Grand Ole Time Dishin' Up ...

Private Label: Friday, July 1st @ 7pm


We are seasoned musicians who came together to master many of the best known rock hits of all time so we can share them with our amazing fans throughout the Bay Area. All our members participate equally as a team and take on songs which feature our respective talents and guide you on a journey of everlasting memories through the music you love! 

Pearl Alley Band: Saturday, July 2nd @ 7pm


Pearl Alley has opened for the likes of Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, James Hunter & Canned Heat. Pearl Alley played throughout Santa Cruz, including Moe's Alley, Fog Bank and Seabright Brewery, for nearly 10 years until transitioning their "headquarters" to San Jose in 2011. They are now actively gigging in the Silicon Valley area.

RB3: Sunday, July 3rd @ 1pm


RB3 is a three piece band that plays classic and modern rock, R&B and modern country. RB3 is perfect for conditions where only a small space is a allotted for the band, or where budgets are tighter. Like all our bands, RB3 is very comfortable playing at softer volumes, but will play louder if necessary.
