Poor Man’s Whiskey veteran Jason Beard teams up with the gorgeous-voiced Samantha Vigil and other PMW musicians for a moving, rollicking set of country, bluegrass and folk-rock.
12:45 – 2pm GATOR NATION
Gator Nation, formerly Gator Beat, have been playing dances and festivals on the West Coast for 20 years. They specialize in their own brand of South Louisiana music – it combines traditional Cajun, Zydeco, and New Orleans R&B. Most notable are the original creations, giving the band their reputation as unforgettable, a band with a beat that bites. The flavor is always spicy, like a good gumbo, and bound to please.
2:45 – 4pm LOST DOG FOUND
Soul. Rock and Roll. New Orleans Jazz. Modern Swing. Roots. Americana… Lost Dog Found can be (and has been) described with a lot of musical adjectives. Combining those genres into their own distinctive modern sound is where Lost Dog Found has set itself apart.
This is not a nod at the 20’s, nor a throwback to the 60’s. This is a musical style for the new millenium… The band has set out to become their own genre, and their live performances have become one of the sweatiest, electric, crowd interactive parties you’ll ever attend.
4:45 -6pm DAVID LUNING BAND
Gritty, soulful singer/songwriter David Luning is a lively storyteller whose music, earnest songwriting and rich, captivating voice would have you believe you’re listening to a hardened veteran of Nashville. He’s a great rocker, so bring your dancin’ shoes!
MAIN STAGE EMCEE: JOHANNES MAGER
Johannes Mager has been our emcee at Bodega Seafood Festival for many years. We first saw Johannes as the tuba player in the hilarious comedy/musical group: The Brass Band. Being a musician and performer for most of his life, he has also been the Music Director for many different shows and events. For the past eleven years he performed as the Jester in the Bracebridge Dinner at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite, and for the past three years he was also the show’s Musical Director. He stepped down from the role last year and is now the new Musical Director of the Circus Center in San Francisco. He will also be teaching aspiring clowns how to incorporate music into their clowning. He always brings his own style of hilarity to our festival.
11:00 -11:45 WINE COUNTRY ENTERTAINMENT ENSEMBLE
A rich blend of classical violin, viola and cello to open our Saturday morning entertainment on a gentle note.
12 – 12:45 EASY LEAVES DUO
The Easy Leaves are very top of the Country heap here in Sonoma County, headlining and filling big rooms (Great American Music Hall, The Independent, Mystic Theatre), main stage set at last year’s Outside Lands Festival (Willie Nelson told them ‘We should play together again’!), CMT premieres their videos … But more to the point, they write, record, and perform incredible songs. Songs that are meticulously crafted, and have great capabilities of (just plain) moving people. Under the guidance of Merle Haggard’s music, and countless other important poets, The Easy Leaves have written their own great collection of poetry for the common man.
1 – 1:45 RAINBOW GIRLS
Rainbow Girls are a collaboration of songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and vocalists who are all California natives. They’ve spent the last four years touring as a rock n roll band, but have recently returned to their folkier roots.
2 – 2:45 MY DIVAS SING-ALONG CAROLING
Our caroling group is the wonderful acapella ensemble My Divas, led by Windsor High’s music instructor Marie Shrader, and featuring some lovely vocal talent. They will lead all who would like to join in singing both traditional and unusual holiday songs.
3 – 3:45 EASY LEAVES
4 – 4:45 RAINBOW GIRLS
11 – 11:45 OWEN BAKER-FLYNN
Owen Baker-Flynn is one of San Francisco’s finest entertainers! He juggles, eats fire, spits jelly beans, draws cartoons, does voice overs, and provides baseball officiating with near 85% accuracy!
12 – 12:45 THE MARK & DRE SHOW
These professional goofballs display their hilarious take on life with witty dialogue, physical prowess and carefully calculated chaos. We have had them previously at the Bodega Festival and loved their wacky performances…you will too!
1 – 1:45 OWEN BAKER-FLYNN
2 – 2:45 MARK & DRE
3 – 3:30 SEBASTOPOL BALLET SCHOOL
