Eric Friedmann and The Lucky Rubes
Eric Friedmann and The Lucky Rubes
Since the summer of 2001 Eric Friedmann and The Lucky Rubes have brought their smoky take on vocal-based Telecaster rock to venues up and down California and in the UK as well. A multi-instrumentalist and accomplished producer, Eric has been a fixture in the Bay Area music community since the mid-eighties, and has played in countless bands on various instruments up and down the West Coast, the Midwest, and in Europe. In 1992 he founded Solana Records, and has recorded and released albums by some of the Bay Area's most exciting talent. He is also the proprietor of The Sandbox, a small recording studio in the Sunset District of San Francisco where the really big stars come to record when they're sick of Hyde Street. 2013 sees The Lucky Rubes back after a break with an exciting all-new lineup:
The Clarences
The Clarences
The Clarences were hatched by Robert A. Medeiros in Oakland, California. He was traumatized because Mego never made a Green Lantern action figure. Then, he met Leslie Outhier at a Canadian bunny farm. After that, he met Erin Shannon at a reading aboard a b-52. Together, they are The Clarences!
The Bobbleheads
The Bobbleheads
The Bobbleheads are an indie “sunshine pop” band, based in San Francisco, CA who have been recording and performing since 2003.
Sean O’Brien and His Dirty Hands

Sean is currently working on his next album for release in 2014.

San Francisco musical collective The Love Dimension steeped itself in the music of the psychedelic era of the 1960s then infused it with the sound of ‘90s grunge and other more contemporary influences to create “mind-expanding music” for the 21st century. Resonating with the consciousness expanding goals of the ‘60s psychedelic movement, The Love Dimension “creates sonic architecture for the benefit of all sentient beings across the multi-verse.” A musical vision that reflects the personal journey of band founder Jimmy L. Dias who was on the path to becoming a shamanic healer when his own experiences of healing called him back to music. In 2008, while continuing his training as a healer, Jimmy set out to find the right players for The Love Dimension.

In January 2009, Jimmy played a solo acoustic show as The Love Dimension at a dive bar in San Francisco. Local club gigs followed with a rotating line-up supporting Jimmy (guitar/vocals), Celeste Obomsawin (vocals/percussion/flute) and Raphael Wayman Davis (bass). During its first two years, the band recorded its first album, “In Between Lives” (2011), several EPs and singles. Then tragedy struck with the untimely death of bass player Raphael. The next few years saw several different band lineups and the release of several recordings including albums "Forget the Remember" (2012) and "Create and Consume" (2014).

The Love Dimension’s core lineup is Jimmy L. Dias (guitar/vocals), Celeste Obomsawin (vocals/percussion/flute), and Devin Farney (keyboards). The band has featured many other talented musicians such as Ryan Erickson (bass), Eric Amerman (guitar/keys/drums/bass), Sonny Pearce (drums), Tommy Anderson (bass), Kyle DeMartini (guitar), and Sean Carney (guitar) just to name a few.

Playing bigger shows at better venues, making festival appearances (including Desert Stars, Whole Earth, Haight Ashbury Street Fair, Gathering of the Tribes), getting radio play, and the release in 2016 of the EP, “Freakquency Space Mind Continuum”, The Love Dimension is poised to make a move.

The Love Dimension is available in multiple configurations—from solo acoustic sets to 11-piece expanded lineups—depending on the needs of the venue and the occasion. Whatever the configuration, The Love Dimension will deliver a performance that will elevate the spirit and move the soul.
