The Connies
The Connies are band from the North San Francisco Bay Area Playing Rock and Roll with Punk influences amongst a slew of
polyamorous hippies and tone deaf metal-heads. Up from the
dregs spawned the Brothers Connie!
Trevor Childs & The Beholders
Trevor Childs & The Beholders
Bay Area Trevor Childs’ Band has been stalwarts in the Bay Area rock n’ roll scene for over 10 years and have played from strip-mall dives to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium bringing direct, real rock n’ roll storytelling that combines All-American classic rock (think early Cheap Trick, Warren Zevon & Ian Hunter) with the ragged glory of Faces, Badfinger and Crazy Horse. On record, however, the band carefully crafts arrangements with new wave and prog rock touches. Their latest album “Spirit Guide” recorded over 3 years in garages, rehearsal spaces and recording studios is their version of Boston’s 1st LP- it’s the best thing they’ve ever done and the combination of their 10 years of blood, sweat and tears.
Beyond Veronica
The Bobbleheads
The Bobbleheads
Formed in 2003, the Bobbleheads, John Ashfield (guitar, vocals), Phil Bulan (drums, vocals), Eugene Koh (bass) have been delighting audiences with their songs of playful yet adult elementary-school infused pop. Their melodies will stick with you long after the song is over, but don't confuse catchy with kitschy. Their bottom line is held down by Phil's steady-on drumming and Eugene's rock-in-your-face bass. John's lyrics reveal they are happy music geeks, making the perfect 3-minute song and having fun along the way. According to The Bobbleheads, the world isn't such a bad place after all.

Talk Tonight
Talk Tonight
We’re Talk Tonight, a rock band based in San Francisco. Our sound has been described as fun, intelligent pop tangled with melodic soul. What’s that you ask? We define it as rockin’ music that gets you through the fog.

Who are we? We’re four guys, two girls bonded together by our separate and collective loves of McDonald’s and martinis, gentlemen’s clubs, Jameson, Blow Pops and, of course, making music.

Intrigued? Good.

Over the last year, we’ve been lucky enough to play to packed audiences across California, including some of the Bay Area’s best-loved and iconic venues such as Brick & Mortar, Café du Nord, Hotel Utah, and the Independent. In January 2013, the band’s first EP, "Single Day," was recognized as one of the best EPs of 2012 by David Bash, founder of International Pop Overthrow. Recently, we were spotted at a local gig and subsequently sponsored to record a new original single. “Unresolved,” produced by acclaimed producer, Starita (Rihanna, Sting).
