The Treacherous French
The Treacherous French
The Treacherous French are an eclectic indie rock band hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. The songs they write are catchy yet complex, while staying true to their indie, blues, country, and alt-rock roots. The lineup consists of a group of four multi-instrumentalists from differing backgrounds ranging from folk rock to punk rock to dance rock to Celtic jazz folk fusion. The semi-standard lineup of rock band instruments is well represented: Phil on bass, Charlie on guitar and vocals, Cara on drums and vocals, and Olivier on keys and accordion - but if you listen closely, you may hear some twists as well: accordion, mandolin, harmonica, glockenspiel, washboard, kalimba - and this blend of styles and instrumentation is what makes The Treacherous French what it is.
The Hijinks
The Hijinks
The Hijinks are the psychedelic folk stylings of Benjamin London inspired by his travels throughout the country his debut album "High Off The Blue Dream" is a wild ride through an americana wonderland. Midwest Roots, Southern Vibes, & West Coast Rambles.
The Honey Toads
The Honey Toads
Formed by four longtime friends, The Honey Toads have grown together over the years on both personal and musical levels. Meeting in their first year of high school, Nick Cafiero (electric ukulele/vocals), Joe DeMars (bass), Jack Hogan (guitar), and Dominic Bergamini (drums) cut their teeth performing covers and working together to give shape to the band’s current form. While historically many groups splinter after graduation, big life changes, and personal tragedies, The Honey Toads have remained a constant in each of the members’ lives. The group’s consistency and stability in the face of the ever-changing times can be felt in their intense drive and ability to connect with an audience on a deeper level.

Although the idea of nostalgia is a constant theme in their music, the quartet doesn’t live in the past. Instead, learning from their triumphs and mistakes, each member channels their experiences into melodic complexity and poetic openness that resonates with both their local scene of Petaluma, CA, as well as a broader audience beyond. The fluid nature of each song and the assured delivery of every note and verse speaks to the solidity of four intertwined paths, years in the making.
