No Fly List is a Beatles cover band, performing harmonies and everything Beatles. They are a bunch of great friends that like to play ambitious and eclectic songs from great artists. Their musical journey began a few years ago, with a growing fan base all over the bay area; come get a seat and enjoy your flight because these guys love to play, entertain, and make you smile, and have a blast involving the audience in what they do.
Joe Rose & The Howlers are a Blues/Rock/Swing trio that have been playing in various incarnations since the mid 1980s. Based out of the East Bay Area with deep Fremont roots, they’ve opened up for artists such as Lydia Pense and Cold Blood, and The Slim Jim Phantom Band (Former drummer of The Stray Cats). Joe Rosiles is a founding member, lead guitarist, and vocalist who has been playing music since the sixties. His influences include Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, and Robert Johnson just to name a few.
The Bacchus Brothers from Livermore put the “Unk” in Funk. Their sound is a blend of Rock, Soul, Jazz and Country and the vocal harmonies make this trio truly unique. All great musicians with deep and rich musical careers, they are perennial headliners at the Two Day Town Music Festival. With Mark Clarin on Guitar, Ray Merrill on Drums, and Don Veca on Bass, the band was formed in 1999 on a Delta Dock. Their diverse musical influences brings its own unique flavor to the sound that is the Bacchus Brothers.
The Billy Martini Show is Northern California’s grooviest ’70s party band. The dynamic Billy Martini and his high octane, fun filled stage show features a six-piece band and dancers. Using the party hits of the ’70s and authentic retro outfits, the audience is transported back in time. The dancing never stops, and audience participation is a natural part of the show. The Billy Martini Show plays a mix of high-energy rock, funk, R&B, and disco.
