Today's Local Music: JAMband

Today we're featuring music by The JAMband. Band leader Charity – who only goes by one name – says this may sound like “kids music,” but really its “people music.” Their goal is to “provide a place for families to relax, connect and have fun together.” If that sounds like a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon, then you may want to hear them at The Beach Chalet on the Great Highway in San Francisco this Sunday, June 10 starting about 3pm.

Today's Local Music: Black Cobra

Today we're featuring Black Cobra. One member of this duo says their sound "is like an avalanche of barbed wire and rabid sharks.” Get the picture?

They’ll be on stage at Slim’s in their hometown of San Francisco this Saturday June 9, with three other bands. They unleash the sounds about 8pm.

Today's Local Music: Barbary Ghosts

Today we are featuring the lusty sounds of The Barbary Ghosts. Their musical inspiration comes from San Francisco’s history of sea-faring fortune-seekers and general social misfits.

They’re one of the scores of musicians and instructors taking part in this weekend’s Free Folk Festival at Presidio Middle School in San Francisco.

The festival starts at noon and goes until 10pm both Saturday and Sunday on June 9th and 10th.

Wouldn’t it be great to hear blues legend Billie Holiday on stage? While that’s not possible anymore, but you can experience a pretty good version of that sound in Kally Price, from Oakland.
