We had a blast with this band!
After talking to the band and hearing some of their songs, I'm certain Funky Tim and The Merlots will be the right fit for our event. Great communication with the band, and we'll even get to sample their talent on March 11th at Woodbridge Crossing! Looking forward to partying with the band!!
Hired him for an small anniversary event. Ryan showed up promptly and with everthing needed to preform. He was very professional and carismatic while entertaining our intimate crowd. I was incredibly impressed with his songbook and abilty to take requests. Ryan takes great pride in all the equipment he uses and it's grossly apparent when you sit back to enjoy the show. Watching Ryan play and sing, his greatest passion - Never a disappointment, always an experience. I have become a big fan and would and will hire Ryan and band to perfom at a future event.

Ruby Jaye and the band performed at my wedding. Ruby learned all of the songs I wanted for my ceremony, and the band played 5 hours straight for the reception, only taking 1 quick break! They had great energy and paid attention to what songs everyone wanted to hear.
I've had the great pleasure of working with Radio at PinsNStrikes Elk Grove Ca. They are a professional, energetic act that started on time. They kept the audience entertained all night long. I would recommend them for any of your corporate, club or personal events. I look forward to working with them very soon!
Wooden Nickel is a charismatic crowd pleaser. Each member has some Impressive skills that come and go through each song; like a surprise that never grows old. It's a head turning show so don't think you're going to try and hold a conversation. The band somehow pulls the audience into the music. They're always gracious and thankful which adds to the dynamic feeling you're left with when the music stops. I first experienced this band passing by from the street; I couldn't stop dancing!!!! Do your feet, eyes and ears a favor and see this show. Rock on Guys.

Conjunto Liberacion is an 11-piece salsa band comprised of musicians of many different ethnic backgrounds and nationalities, including Panama, Puerto Rico, Mexico, U.S., and Cuba. The band musicians have been working on this project for about 5 or 6 years and originally started as a folkloric Afro-Cuban drumming ensemble. The ensemble gradually evolved into a full salsa band heavily influenced by the New York City sound of the '70s and '80s groups, like Fania Allstars, Sonora Poncena, Gran Combo, and Willie Colon and Ruben Blades. Conjunto Liberacion went this route in order to "fill a void for this style in the Sacramento and surrounding vicinity areas." The band members all grew up listening to salsa in their various hometowns. That experience has led them to also love playing and sharing their passion for salsa music. The band is led by Hector Conde (timbales) and Marco Valle (congas) with Eddie Vidales (bass), Doug Matson (piano), Leo Servin (vocals and percussion), Ness G. (vocals), Ted Vega (vocals and percussion) and backed by the experienced horn section of Mike Breit (trumpet), Dave Metzger (trumpet), Steve Gonsoulin (trombone) and David Bowman (trombone).
We are a trop rock group. We are Michael Sea & Island Fever. Nationally recognized singer/songwriter, Michael Sea has been writing and performing songs with a tropical/nautical theme for the past 25 years. A contemporary of genre touchstone for Jimmy Buffett, Michael interpolates his own personal spin on Buffett and other classics into his set. Michael's vast catalog of original songs tell stories, both true and fanciful, evoking exotic locales and bringing to life colorful characters like Toucan Bill. The music masters of Island Fever complete the sound combining a driving rhythm section and tight harmonies. Island Fever features the talents of Bryan Weiss on bass, Don Parsons on drums, Gordon Schaaf on percussion and JJ Jenkins on keyboards. We have performed at countless festivals, fairs and stadium shows, including opening for Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer's many times. For larger, stadium-type venues, the band brings out the full compliment for that your-face-is-in-the-music sound with up to 12 musicians.

There are many tributes to other artists, but few with the 2+ solid hours of chart-busting hits of Tom Petty. What makes GWO stand out from other Petty tributes are our easy-going professionalism and that we sound so close to the original.
kaiclarkmusic.com When you’re the son of the Byrds’ Gene Clark – a pivotal figure in the formation of three distinct sub-genres of rock music (folk/psychedelic/country) – there’s a certain expectation, spoken or unspoken, that you’ll pick up the guitar and join the family business. From an early age Kai Clark felt the pressure of such unreasonable expectations, but has always followed his own path in life, not one that had been projected on to him by anyone else. If Kai were to ever become a musician, it would happen naturally, on his own terms. When the time was right. “My father never wanted me to become a musician,” says Kai. “Maybe it was because he thought he could shelter me from the music business and didn't want me to live that life.” But as all musicians know, the pull to play music, once felt, is profound and inexorable. For Kai, who grew up in Mendocino, California, that moment came just before he entered his teenage years. “I think I was around 12 when I first learned a couple chords and would pick up an old guitar that used to sit in our living room when no one was around. For some reason I was drawn to the blues and could play and make up lyrics of my own to the chords and rhythm. I started carrying that old guitar around when I went to school and it started to become a part of me.” Kai’s first electric guitar was a 1973 sunburst Fender Stratocaster – a treasured gift from his mother on his 15th birthday, which he plays to this day. Soon thereafter, Kai followed his instinct. Having learned to sing and play at the same juncture, the impulse to write songs felt natural. “My mom says I would sit on the couch and write these songs about love and life and she would wonder where it came from, as I was too young to have any experience in those matters,” says Kai. “I guess it was always part of me. Something deep in my soul that I – like my father – was probably born with.” When Kai turned 17, certain painful realities, including family illnesses and his father’s untimely death in 1991, served to push him deeper into the solace offered by music. “There was a fire inside me and music seemed to quench it,” he says. “My band and music became my family, my healing guide. Times were tough and I don't think I would have made it through without music. It literally saved my life!” But in 2003, Kai’s life took an abrupt change. Again, following his own path, not one foisted upon him by anyone, he enrolled in the prestigious California Culinary Academy in San Francisco – an affiliate of Le Cordon Bleu – and graduated with honors in 2004. Three years later, however, he discovered that music was again calling him. He returned to Southern California to play gigs and record with the Kai Clark Band, but in 2010 he put family first, went on hiatus and moved back to Northern California to raise his two children with wife Amber. The Kai Clark Band Kai’s music is pure Americana, and combines elements of blues, country and rock, with a wide range of influences that include Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Taj Mahal and Keb Mo. The brief hiatus from the music business now over, Kai looks forward to resuming his career with the renewed passion and energy that comes from the peace of having followed his own path, in his own time. “I never stopped playing and writing,” says Kai. “Having children has definitely inspired me with music and in life in general. I feel like I’m writing and playing the best I ever have and am really excited about getting back into the studio and out on the road to do live shows.” He has also come to terms with his father’s legacy. Musicians who also happen to be the progeny of famous rock stars often try to avoid direct association or comparison with their parents’ achievements. This arises out of a fully understandable desire to have their talents assessed on their own respective merits. Kai Clark will always be the son of Gene Clark, founder member of The Byrds, but he has also embarked upon a musical career that both openly embraces his father’s legacy, while simultaneously furthering his own unique vision. “I have a better knowledge and respect for my father’s music,” says Kai. “I love playing his songs – which I never really pursued much in the past, mainly because of my own prolific writing. No matter where life will take me from here, I will always write and play music. It is as much a part of me as the blood that runs through my veins.” Tom A. Sandford
