The Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter (SF Bay Guardian) and RAW San Francisco Musician of the Year had his song "Sweep Me" included on the very popular KFOG Local Scene 8 CD in the Bay Area. His songs are delivered in an inimitable and endearingly charismatic persona the SFBG describes as “the swagger of Lenny Kravitz and the lyrical prowess of Jack Johnson.”

Charlie Kaupp is the singer/songwriter and guitarist for San Francisco eclectic indie rock band The Treacherous French. The songs they write are catchy yet complex, while staying true to their indie, blues, country, and alt-rock roots. The band's typical line-up consists of four multi-instrumentalists from differing backgrounds ranging from folk rock to punk rock to dance rock to Celtic jazz folk fusion. The semi-standard composition of rock band instruments is well represented: Phil on bass, Charlie on guitar and vocals, Cara on drums and vocals, and Olivier on keys and accordion – but if you listen closely, you may hear some twists as well: accordion, mandolin, harmonica, glockenspiel, washboard, kalimba – and this blend of styles and instrumentation is what makes The Treacherous French what it is.
Join Charlie for a special acoustic set as he is accompanied by Cara on percussion and vocals and Olivier on accordion
Sharon Pucci and Marc Neilson have been in the Bay Area music scene since the late 60's. Although their backgrounds differ, they have blended their styles to create their own sound. They sing a variety of material from funky fusion to jazzy, operatic folk. Call it "Space Folk" if you like. It is possible to make music with both intelligence AND beauty. If anything describes their mission statement, it would be to elevate the discussion, and sonically make the world a better place. Sounds like a trip ... come and check them out.
Kevin Coffey and Seamus O'Connell,
in trouble before they were born,
weaving guitar sounds to create a golden musical tapestry
as fresh and exciting as tomorrow's headlines.
As in flight as the hummingbird-
and as refreshing as a cool drink of water
on a hot summer's day.
Reshaping musical convention as they see fit and harnessing, finally,
their combined 'Talent for Mischief'-
for duty and humanity.
Whew! Has it been a year already?! Yes it has, so it's time to throw a party!
