Tender Mercies

Date: May 26
Sponsored by:

An original band, Tender Mercies is a side project, of a sort, that includes two Counting Crows -- Dan Vickrey on guitar and vocals and drummer Jim Bogios. The band's origins actually go back 20 years, to the time when Vickrey first came to the San Francisco Bay Area. One of the first people he met was Patrick Winningham, who was the manager of the Hotel Utah, one of the best singer/songwriter venues in San Francisco. Winningham was also a songwriter and enlisted Vickrey, and bass player Kurt Stevenson, for the group that became Tender Mercies. In 1993, Vickrey joined the Counting Crows on second guitar. When the Crows went on hiatus in 2010, Vickrey set up a bedroom studio, rounded up his old bandmates, and cut an album.

Zoo Station
The Complete U2 Experience

Date: June 9
Sponsored by:

Since 2001, this band has delivered the visual, musical and spiritual thrill of a U2 concert to bars, clubs, outdoor festivals, private parties and corporate events along the West Coast of North America. Singer Bonalmost leads the show, flying high with the vocal strength and confidence of Bono’s The Joshua Tree days. The Sledge showers thick layers of effectual guitar work over crowd as Adamesque on bass and Barely Larry on the drums deliver the pounding heartbeat of some of modern rock’s most memorable songs. The band’s primary job is replication, but periodically Zoo Station innovates as much as it imitates. During their trademark full-album spotlight sets in which the band plays an entire U2 album from start to finish Zoo Station encounters such obscurities as “Elvis Presley and America,” “Promenade,” “Red Hill Mining Town” and “Acrobat,” songs rarely or never performed live by U2.

Patron Latin Rhythms

Date: July 21
Sponsored by:

Patrón Latin Rhythms is a collaboration of well-seasoned professional musicians with a number of diverse backgrounds, which enables the band to play different styles of Latin music, such as Latin Jazz, Rock, Mambo, and even Ol' Skoo R&B/Latin Funk! Patrón takes a serious approach in covering artists such as Santana, Malo, Poncho Sanchez, Eddie Palmieri, and other top Latin recording artists. Patrón is blessed in having members that have previously worked, performed, recorded, and collaborated with Malo, Sapo, Lava, La Ventana, Colores, and The Lowdown.

Patrón's goal is simple: to inspire the dancing spirit in everyone with driving percussion rhythms, hair-raising guitar licks, and a horn section that is reminiscent of Tower of Power and other trailblazing horn sections in the industry!
