The Jack Mosbacher Band - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Jack Mosbacher Band
“Bolstered by radio-ready pop tunes like his cheery debut single “I’m In Love” and funky slow-burner “Bad News,” Sunny Songs for Shady People by The Jack Mosbacher Band feels primed to crack the Top 40 charts.” –San Francisco Chronicle

Stashed somewhere between rock-pop acts like Elvis Costello and Andy Grammer and feel-good country-rockers like Jimmy Buffett and Zac Brown is The Jack Mosbacher Band, an eclectic and rollicking rock group from San Francisco. Whether performing with his small ensemble – guitar, bass and drums with Mosbacher on vocals, guitar and keys – or with his full nine-piece and horn section, Jack Mosbacher’s music hopes to transport you to a happier, brighter place.

"I make music to make people happy, and nothing gives me greater joy than connecting with an audience. Whether you're in a great place and want to celebrate or you're down and need a lift from whatever's troubling you, I hope our music puts a little more light into your world."

A former Stanford baseball player, Mosbacher began his career in New York City, working his way up the East Village ladder in venues like Rockwood Music Hall, The Mercury Lounge, Bowery Electric, and Sidewalk Café. He released his debut album, Sunny Songs for Shady People, in July 2016 to a full house at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and has already begun laying tracks for his next album.
Uncle Riffkin - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Uncle Riffkin
Uncle Riffkin is a San Francisco grown 5-piece band that blends sounds new and old, reminiscent of bluegrass and psychedelic rock n' roll straight from Haight-Ashbury (think Tom Petty meets Pink Floyd). For nearly 5 years they have played across San Francisco, and into Northern California and Oregon. Their catchy original tunes capture a groove that will make you want to dance, sing along and raise your fist in the air.
Pamela Parker Experience (closing set) - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Pamela Parker Experience (closing set)
Pamela Parker is a producer, songwriter, guitarist and high-powered vocalist. Her band features some of the finest musicians in world. Their raw energy along with Pamela's powerhouse pipes bring to mind, Amy Winehouse and Ann Wilson. Her dynamic show draws you close, then surges forward with anthemic power to lift you higher than you knew was possible. Pamela shreds like a cross between Susan Tedeschi and Bonnie Raitt, all the while driving you with danceable hooks alongside her dueling lead guitarist. The upcoming album creates a fresh rock n'roll landscape with a diversity of touchstones you wouldn't expect to experience like Alabama Shakes, Thin Lizzy, and Funkadelic. The last album, Evolutionary Process, debuted at #1 and was up for Album of the Year in Vancouver, BC.
Jesse Brewster - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Jesse Brewster
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jesse Brewster's sound fuses a Rock/Americana style he describes as "Tom Petty and Lynyrd Skynyrd get into a bar room brawl with Neil Young and John Mayer." Brewster's parents brewed his love for music at an early age. There was always something on the record player, be it Willie Nelson, The Stones or Bob Marley. At the age of 12 he started his first band with his brother Jim on drums and childhood friend Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake, Christina Aguilera) on bass. "I can't remember a time in my life when music wasn't important to me," he says. “It’s the greatest medium allowing you to express anger and rebellion, playful sarcasm, tenderness and beauty-it’s everything.”
