Little Smoke
Little Smoke on bandcamp.com
Little Smoke on facebook
We kick off our evening of Two Day Town music with a group that is new to our stages. A self-described "Power Trio", these folks from Half Moon Bay will trip you out with their unique psychedelic blues rock: Konane Cramer, vocals and guitar; Bryan Ellison on bass; and Abraham Engel on the drums.
F Street Stompers
F Street Stompers on facebook
Drawing upon America's bluesy roots, the F Street Stompers blend syncopated rhythms and high-energy jigs of early 1900s ragtime with classic upbeat toe-tappers. Add a pinch of bluegrass, a dash of country and a smidgen of gypsy for flavor, and you've got yourself a recipe guaranteed to put a pep in your step!
Suzanna Spring and the Surly Jackasses
suzannaspring.com
Livermore singer-songwriter Suzanna Spring spices up her original country sound with The Surly Jackasses, a group of musicians also known as the South Livermore Boys. Two Day Town has never seen their surly sides but their talent is evident: Paul Schimmelman on bass and Art Thompson on electric guitar, with The Front Porch members Joe O'Loughlin on drums; John Gay on pedal steel, and Jim Hurley on violin.
Rich Lawson Music
richlawsonmusic.com
Singer-songwriter Rich Lawson Krieger is a veteran Two Day Town performer - in Political Plum - who describes himself as a "blue collar rebel hippie gypsy with plenty of drive and ambition to bring good music to the good people who choose to listen." Amen! Watch his website for info about his new studio album.
Big Sticky Mess
bigstickymess.com
We liked these guys so much in 2014 that we begged them to come back in 2015! Jonny Blaze, Black Pat, and Juan Carlos describe their style as "original funk for you earhole... a kaleidoscopic mix of extraterrestrial hooks, vibrant grooves, and potent beats." But don't just listen to their show. You gotta come down to the stage and see it for yourselves - Big Sticky Mess is pure entertainment for the eyes and ears!
The Mundaze
themundaze.com
This year will be the 10th Two Day Town with The Mundaze, and it just wouldn't be Two Day Town without their sizzling hot blend of funk and pop punctuated with top-shelf vocals. The band cast consists of Justin Anderson on drums; Shannon Bradley on vocals and guitar; Chad Dorado on lead guitar and vocals; Michael Klooster on keys and TJ Tyler on bass. The Mundaze is a must-see on Friday night.

That's it for Friday's Main Stage, but there will be music all over Two Day Town through the evening.
Wander around to the bonfire and other camps for an evening of jams.
The playing will continue late into the night, but please remember that park rules require no drumming after 10 PM.

Saturday Morning Gospel Workshop

Schoolhouse Flats at 9:00
Join Reverend Terry Burley of Living Water Band for an informal Gospel Music workshop.

The Drinking
Led by Two Day Town's coffee purveyor, Matt Keebler's band offers organic tree music in the key of tree. What's in that coffee, Matt?

Saturday Afternoon Main Stage

Music Starts at Noon



Hannah Kile
hannahjanekile.com
Hannah Jane Kile is a sweet and soulful songbird who conveys vulnerability in her robust voice. Hannah's guitar work effortlessly weaves through her melodies touching on coming of age and strength in overcoming all obstacles.
The Whoa
thewhoaband.com
Band leader, guitarist and singer Jason Young united this Concord based "alternate rock reggae fun" band through a series of open mic jams. Joining Jason are Dan Jordan on lead guitar, Everett Gomez on bass, Anthony Harrington on drums, and Mike Moretti on keys.
Buddhahounds
Buddhahounds on myspace
Welcome back the buddhahounds for their ninth TDT gig. It's been way different every time. Youth and energy collide with very satisfying results in this foursome described as an "eclectic mix of acoustic/electric alternative, touching melodies, and heartfelt lyrics".
Michael McNevin
michaelmcnevin.com
Two Day Town is so lucky to have this level of talent on its Main Stage. A six-time West Coast Songwriters Association "Song of the Year" winner, Michael sings stories much like Mark Twaine weaves tales. If once a year isn't enough Michael McNevin (and it isn't!) check out his Mudpuddle Shop in historic Niles Canyon where he hosts concerts and even displays his killer Etch-A-Sketches.

Nap Time!

3:00 - 6:00 PM
Take a break! Relax and refresh yourself, or...
Head to the Second Stage at the public campground amphitheater for

Saturday Nap Time at the Amphitheater

Right after the Saturday afternoon music ends on the main stage, acoustic music starts up at the amphitheater.
This session started out as an experiment several years ago and is now an integral part of Two Day Town.
Take the paved path toward the main gate, follow it to the campground, then follow the signs to the amphitheater.
It's about a 15 minute walk, or catch the shuttle from the parking lot (occasional round trips).


Indigo Caravan
indigocaravan.com
The All-Acoustic Naptime At The Amphitheater has become a favorite session for many Two Day Town veterans. This year, our Nap Time line-up is kicked off by our long time friends Nathan & Yosifah Rose Craver. Take an exotic, magical musical journey that blurs time and place as they weave a rich tapestry blending folk/rock, world, jazz, blues, and country.
Gary Walker
A Two Day Town stalwart and truly one of the nicest people on this planet, skilled guitarist Gary Walker will soothe your soul with his unique vocal style.
Chris Head
A repeat Two Day Town performer as a member of the bluesy Americana band Tank Half Full, Chris went solo in February with a slew of new songs. Come on out and show support for one of TDT's very own musicians.
Diablo Riders
These folks are long term Two Day Towners, bringing us music from the ranch. Settle deep into those saddles for some pure cowboy music from musicians David Lehrer, John Zalabak, Hali Hammer, and Steve Deutsch.
Wolf Hamlin & The Front Porch Drifters
wolfhamlinmusic.com
Livermore guitarist and singer Wolf Hamlin leads this country outlaw band with more than a little help from his friends: Tim Miller on vocals and lead guitar, Karl Wente on acoustic guitar, Lindsey Hamlin & Jim Hurley on fiddle, James Chasia on viola, Andrew Cox on dog house bass, and Joe O'Loughlin on drums.

Saturday Evening Main Stage

Music Starts around 6:00 PM


Roy Jeans
Armando's
Open To Music
Oh, boy, it's time for Roy! For reasons that we could probably never thoroughly explain, we like Roy to start things off on Saturday evenings. Roy has been an integral part of Two Day Town since Day 1 and that has some perks, plus there's no doubt of his support for local live music. Roy is the proprietor of one of the Bay Area's best LISTENING rooms, so if you haven't been to his intimate music club Armando's in historic downtown Martinez you're missing part of the Two Day Town Big Picture. Roy Jeans. Open To Music.
Fretted Friends
Two Day Town's Best (um, only...) Mayor Ever - also known as Michael Ferrucci or sometimes Mayor Juana (anyone Juana be Mayor?) - will round up a handful of musicians in the parking lot before the show and invite them to play! Think we're kidding? Nope, he does this every year. It will be good, it always is. This, you gotta see.
Free Prize Give-Away
This will be the tenth year of our Free Prize Give-Away. We have gifted some very nice items over the years, varying from incredible handmade instruments to show tickets. This is a "Be There To Win" event, so show up at the Main Stage this evening and fill out what could be your winning entry. What can you win? No telling yet. Maybe a steel guitar, maybe some tickets, definitely not a trip to Wally World. We'll have all that detail some time around Saturday afternoon...
Groove Dragon
groovedragonmusic.com
Get in the groove with obscure jazz fusion artists Cory De Brake on bass, Frank Acosta on guitar, Bobby Strickland on sax, David Dupart on keyboards, Ray merrill on drums, & Jeffry Holt as band engineer. They might not be as obscure as you think. Just sayin'.
Crawdad Republic
crawdadrepublic.com
These fine musicians were just wee lads when their parents began 'dragging' them to Two Day Town every April. Just look at them now! Better yet, come on down and marvel at their twist on contemporary bluegrass, stellar harmonies, infectious melodies and innovative arrangements.
El Desayuno
eldesayuno.com
Talk about a stage full of party! Band leader & bassist Michael Cerda heads up this group delivering improvisational Latin jazz guaranteed to bring even the most rhythmically challenged to their feet and begging for more. Plus, you can thank guitarist Bob Knight for the sound gear you've been listening to all these years.
Bacchus Brothers
bacchusbrothers.com
This trio of Mark Clarin, Ray Merrill(see - there he is again), and Don Veca are big-time Two Day Town favorites who describe their sound as a congruence of rock, jazz, blues, funk, reggae, and country. Long time TDT supporters, they often introduce new artists to our stage. Whatever they do, we like it and so will you.

That's it for Saturday's stage, but there's plenty more music happening.
There will be jams all over Two Day Town at campsites and at the fire pit, for hours to come.
Remember that all drumming has to stop at 10 PM to comply with our agreement with park management.

Sunday Morning Gospel Gathering

Schoolhouse Flats Picnic Area at 9:00
Bring your voice and your acoustic instruments and join Reverend Terry Burley at Schoolhouse flats for an hour of rejoicing.

Richie B. & The Music Fiends
Richie Beltran on facebook
"Richie is an awesome one-man act" writes R Place Music Club in Livermore. "He sings, plays both acoustic and electric guitar, plays harmonica, and he passes out a menu to the crowd and allows them to pick the songs!"
Jack Quigley
jack-quigley.com
Jack Quigley serves up a gumbo pot of acoustic musical styles including blues, gospel, spiritual, folk, country rock, and bluegrass. Jack has been with us a few times before as part of Bones~Quigley, playing the Amphitheater & Cafe stages.

BoSco Duo
BoSco Duo on facebook
Join Bob and Scott on a journey through acoustic rock and blues from the 1960s to today.
Huck Twoee and the Phlemtones
With Kenny 'Man About Two Day Town' Williams on the stage, the audience could hear anything from a cigar-box mandolin to a tune played on a washboard. (And no, we at Two Day Town have no idea what his band name means!)

Sunday Afternoon Main Stage

Performance starts around 11:45


Living Water Band
Start the morning with the soul-soothing sounds of traditional gospel music led by the Rev. Terry Burley. This band has opened up our Sunday show many times and it will give you the spititual strength to face the world after your long weekend off the grid.
Fender Cronin
fendercronin.com
This husband-wife folk music songwriting and performing team has graced Two Day Town stages since its humble beginning, first taking the stage in 2001. They are one of the few acts to have played every year, simply because we like them. Sit back and enjoy their original lyrics and seamless harmonies.
Kids Chorus
It just doesn't get much cuter than watching tomorrow's performers get their first taste of what it feels like to sing on the Main Stage. We've seen a few of our Two Day Town toddlers grow into successful music careers over the years! Check with organizers at the Family Activity Area for details.
The Creak
thecreak.net
With its hard swinging rhythm section and strong melodies, The Creak plays an action packed mix of music rooted in the bluegrass tradition while drawing inspiration from sources as varied as The Beatles to James Brown.
The Lost Cats
thelostcats.com
Sunday on the lawn just wouldn't be the same without Jim Passard and friends and their smooth, jazzy interpretations of a wide array of material, delivered seamlessly. Jim's smoky vocalizing and his band's exquisite musicianship can be very satisfying to music aficionados as well as the casual passers-by.
Don Burnham & the Bolos
thebolos.com
Leader of the Western Swing band "Lost Weekend" and a San Francisco native, Don has spent his life pickin' and singin' from campfire circles to concert stages. He was inducted into the Western Swing Hall of Fame in 2005, and Two Day Town is darned lucky to have him and his friends on its stage.
Groove.Org
markholzinger.com/groove
The sizzling talents of virtuoso guitarist Mark Holzinger and percussionist John Waller have helped wrap up Two Day Town every year. They describe their sound as "searing rock and roll as well as getting psychedelic with melodic motifs's reaching middle ground acid jazz with a funky groove."

That's All Folks....Until Next Year
Please Remember -- Leave No Trace, and please No Glass anywhere at Two Day Town!
