Curt Yagi & The People Standing Behind Me
Curt Yagi & The People Standing Behind Me
Once voted the Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Curt Yagi has been on a tear through the Bay Area music scene. Curt and his full band, The People Standing Behind Me, are always-engaging to the crowd and bring a blend of happy acoustic rock with a touch of funk for flavor.

Best of all, Ben Fong-Torres, former Senior Editor, Rolling Stone had this to say, "People keep comparing him to other artists, but I think he just sounds like Curt Yagi, and that is plenty good enough. This is one excellent singer and songwriter."
Sans Pablo

Bigelow's Treehouse
Bigelow's Treehouse
Oakland based band Bigelow's Treehouse has the musical ability & mojo to get any dance floor moving.

Since it's incarnation in 2008, Bigelow's Treehouse has performed repeatedly in all types of venues in every major city across California and has shared the stage with Bay Area legends such as Tia Carroll and Little Wolf & The Hellcats. Bigelow's Treehouse is currently recording their debut album for release in 2012. If you have ever seen the band live you know that Bigelow's Treehouse can effortlessly power through an upbeat blues shuffle with the same quality musicianship that it can lay down a slick Meter's style funk groove.
Austin Pidgeon
Austin Pidgeon
Austin Pidgeon, or Pidge, was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Growing up, music came naturally. His neighbor took the youth up as his apprentice, teaching him how to play guitar. Developing as a musician, Pidge immersed himself in blues, rock, punk, and soul, but became most loyal to the reggae scene, from the positive roots of Bob Marley to the upbeat, party vibes of Sublime and Pepper. More recently, Austin found refuge in the underground hip hop scene, spiritually uplifted and lyrically influenced by the likes of Atmosphere, Mac Lethal, and Murs. Nonetheless, he still claims to have the most fun throwing up a bonfire, kicking back with friends, and singing some classics – Jack Johnson, Dispatch, etc. This diverse background helped Austin to develop a unique style, meshing the West Coast mellow with developed lyrics, while seamlessly picking up the mood and just having fun. “Music is one of God’s greatest gifts to us, and I’m blessed to be able to share that with others. It’s a passion that drives and a love that thrives, for music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven straight to the soul, ya dig!”
