July 2 Lydia Pense & Cold Blood
A True Living Legend
THIS IS NOT A TRIBUTE, THIS IS THE REAL DEAL
Lydia Pense & Cold Blood debuted when the Fillmore was at its peak as one of the nation's musical Meccas. Owner Bill Graham was so impressed with Lydia's voice and the sound of the band that he immediately signed Cold Blood to his new record label.
During the span of six original late-60's, early-70's albums, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood helped, along with Tower Of Power, forge their own specific brand of funk/soul and R&B which came to be known as East Bay Grease. That music still holds up today, proving that great music is timeless and will continue to inspire generations to come. The word legend certainly applies to Lydia Pense and Cold Blood…and not in some past tense-make-a-living-as-an-oldies-act sort of way either. Pense can still shout like a 60's soul diva and purr a slow blues tune with spine-tingling subtlety.
Cold Blood, as a whole, features a stellar group of musicians who have been playing together for nearly 20 years

Aug 27 Big Bang Beat
The Ultimate Party Band from San Francisco. A night of dancing under the stars
BIG BANG BEAT is a the legendary San Francisco based review that perform favorites of the 60′s Motown sound and the fabulous funk of the 70′s through to dance hits from the 80’s and 90’s. They are lead by dazzling female singers decked out in sequined dresses, plus a crack horn section, a precision choreographed stage show, and a zany, non-stop energy that has made this highly acclaimed band a virtual fixture at clubs, conventions, fund-raisers and corporate and private parties throughout the U.S.A., and now increasingly around the globe.
The critics have called BIG BANG BEAT a “surrealistic soul sensation,” and “a band that can transform a soul classic like Jr. Walker and the All Stars’ ‘Shotgun’ into a near religious experience.” Corporate event producers have called the group “The very best party band in America, bar none. On a scale from 1 to 10…a 12.”

June 4. Heartless, a tribute to Heart
Linda Boudreau was born to sing. Linda had a burning desire to sing Heart songs from the day the Dreamboat Annie album was released and she heard Ann Wilson. Inspired by Ann, Linda’s passion for singing led her to find the power of her voice, and use her soaring vocals to front various rock cover band throughout the 80’s to the present. After forming Heartless, Linda knew she had finally found her “Nancy” when she and Gail Eaton jammed together for the first time. They both shared the same dream to become a tribute band worthy of Heart. Carefully hand-picking musicians that shared that same passion, and respect, for Heart---the current lineup of Heartless was born, and fired by her heart and soul
