Catching up on March News

We kicked off March with back-to-back shows in the city.

On Friday, March 4 we had a special program in store for our first appearance at Dolores Park Cafe as we played back-up band for a cavalcade of women singers - the lovely Leslie Bailey who last performed with us at Make-Out Room, country chanteuse Catherine Foreman of the band Starlene, and the one and only Katharine Cole - you may know her better as the singing cowgirl Kitty Rose.

We were glad to be along for the ride as these ladies brought the house down with a mix of San Francisco originals and country classics.

The next night we reconvened at The Fillmore for our Poster Room gig with Drive-By Truckers on the main stage for the Saturday night edition of their two-night run. Anytime we step into The Fillmore is pretty special in and of itself, but that night the Poster Room was standing room only and packed with a great crowd of roots music fans.

Request for Hank Sr.? No problem!
