Devastatingly powerful vocals & retro-rock guitar, with lyrics that run the gamut between vulnerable to all-out venomous: siblings Jocelyn & Chris Arndt are creating a new generation of authentic album rock.

“One couldn’t help but to just be amazed at her raw, Janis Joplin-inspired voice. Chris Arndt morphed from John Mayer to Eddie Van Halen to Jimi Hendrix and back again.

The Kahulanui band standing on a Hawaiian beach.

Hawaiian music is undoubtedly one of the Islands’ great exports, but what about the music that was imported onto the islands? Meet Kahulanui, a leading exponent of traditional Hawaiian music as blended with the Big Band Swing as brought to the Aloha State by U.S. servicemen during World War II. The nine piece band—four horns, plus guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and steel — was nominated for a Grammy for their debut CD, "Hula Ku’I." Their energy and dynamic arrangements have caused a sensation throughout the Islands.

The year 2018 marks the 75th and 100th anniversaries of the deaths of beloved composers Rachmaninoff and Debussy.  In this concert with commentary, internationally acclaimed pianist Jeffrey Siegel performs and shares insights on their works, including Rachmaninoff’s famous “C Sharp Minor Prelude,” Debussy’s “Clair de lune” and stirring Etudes of both composers.

Anderson East wearing a black t-shirt, standing in front of a gray background.

Anderson East is the humble type -- the sort of man who chalks up his success to loads of good fortune. But the singer-songwriter has earned his accolades: one of music’s most compelling young artists, East is an unflinching and inimitable talent. Best exemplified on his breakout 2015 debut album, Delilah, the Alabama-native wields an unwavering and potent, ever-husky voice. And as seen on standout tracks including “Satisfy Me” and “Devil In Me,” he’s able to effortlessly spin tales of tumult and triumph in equal measure. That’s of course to say nothing of the brute force with which the man performs — fiery and forceful, as much a wily preacher as a patient poet, East has become one of music’s must-see live act.

Two iconic San Francisco bands celebrate the Summer of Love and beyond!  

Many have considered Malo’s 1972 hit single “Suavecito” the Chicano National Anthem.  The Latin-tinged rock group’s music was also popular in Central and South America.

It’s a Beautiful Day is another band that emerged from the Summer of Love. The band created a unique blend of rock, jazz, folk, classical, and world-beat styles during the initial seven years it was officially together. Their song “White Bird” was considered by many as one of the official Hippie anthems of the era.
