About the Performers – a selection:

Jay Trainer Band: Jay combines thick, prolific guitar riffs and stark lyricism, while drawing on the traditions of funk, rock, blues, and psychedelia to craft a modern classic. His band possesses a unique ability to effortlessly negotiate tone and volume, moving from a quiet, almost jazzy tone to a booming thunder at any given moment.   jaytrainer.com


Pebble Theory:  Dominated by powerful guitar riffs & backed with unique lyrics that casually infiltrate the mind of the listener, PT’s powerfully candid energy seeks to entrance audiences with engaging & soulful music.  pebbletheory.com

Ziva: “Incredibly powerful to observe, Ziva provokes her piano and propels her songs with admirable composure and intention. Her seductive voice is dimensional and sure from its deepest brooding lows to fierce highs. The band behind her serves as an army of confidence and cause her progressions to explode.”  zivamusic.com

PianoFight’s Monday Night Foreplays: original female-driven comedy committed to providing a consistent platform for talented female writers, actors, musicians and stand-up comedians in and near San Francisco. MNF currently run a weekly variety show at The Dark Room.  pianofight.com

  • Tomorrow at Rasselas Jazz Club. Sugar Rush: a fundraiser for diabetes ft. Live Music, Comedy, DJ and More! Help us raise funds, listen to some great live music, and enjoy slideshows of photographs I’ve made in recording studios and almost every live music venue in town over the last two years of local SF-based musicians. Going to be a blast!
