California music goes global

The Caliopians are a California band (hence the Cali in our name) steeped in the sounds of the southern desert, the coastal surf towns, Bakersfield twang, and the inner city we live in. Opians cause we have a big place in our hearts and heads for Ethiopian jazz and Afro Cuban diaspora sounds. A big slice of Klezmer and what ever else falls into our listening life. The music we write and record all sounds like us, but different aspects of our roots end up in each separate number.

Modern spin on the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Byrds, Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Traveling Wilburys

Bay Area based Fossil Farm has been entertaining audiences with a fun and lively assortment of classic, folk, and alt-rock music for over a decade. The group puts their own modern spin on music from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Byrds, Lumineers, Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, Chris Isaak, Fleetwood Mac, Moody Blues, Traveling Wilburys, and more. The band began as a collaboration of musical ideas between Drew Morrish, a British pub-band rocker, and Rich Fassler, a part of the 60's East Bay garage band scene. The two met by chance in 2004 and discovered they shared the same musical interests and style, despite growing up over 5,000 miles apart. They have been rocking the Bay Area ever since.

Original music, blues, punk, reggae, rock, goth, soul, metal, psychedelic, funk, and more - all with a unique spin.

Arcane Lullaby is a local Santa Cruz band combining an eclectic mix of various music styles, unique original music and meaningful lyrics. The project was born from a dream, the music and lyrics harvested from the aether, and endures for love. For this show we will be branching off from our regular program to delve into some rocking instrumental jams as well as showcasing some of our songs with vocals. Although the band has a particular sound of its own, it cannot be pigeonholed into any single genre. Some of the entirely original songs may be difficult to categorize while other songs clearly draw inspiration from various styles. We could simply say "Alternative Rock" but you will have to hear it to believe it.
