Spidermeow

Americana / Jam / Psychedelic

Spidermeow on bandcamp
Spidermeow on youtube
Quoting East Bay Express: "Oakland's premier psychedelic alt-country power trio. Combining roots conciousness with art-damaged experimentalism. Spidermeow makes weird, interesting, experimental music, with elements that are both folksy and psychedelic. Groove-heavy, with excellent vocals and moments of country twang, Spidermeow is a throwback to the golden age of the California music scene.“
Just Adventure

Rock / Blues

Just Adventure on facebook
You'll be on your feet when this band of best friends breaks out its bluesy rock power melodies.
Blue Voodoo

Power Blues

bluevoodoomusic.com
Blue Voodoo's four musicians describe their sound as power blues or, put another way, progressive modern music that rocks the heart with blues undertones. "The sum is greater than the parts." From swampy blues to western rock, this is not your typical slow tempo blues band.
Plastic Paddy

Country / Rock Celtic Pub

plasticpaddyband.com
New to Two Day Town, this East Bay band plays original and classic Celtic pub tunes with a country/rock flavor. "We love to have fun and love the music even more when the audience has fun, too!" With a little luck, the band will have their debut CD released in time to take them home with you!
The Mundaze

Pop Funk Rock

themundaze.com
The Mundaze on facebook
Get your funk on with these TDT favorites! The Mundaze explode on stage with their original retro pop soul sounds, top-shelf vocals, bitchin' guitars and funky grooves. After having this band on our stage for a decade, Two Day Town would not be Two Day Town without The Mundaze.
Wolf Hamlin & The
Front Porch Drifters

Americana / Southern Rock

wolfhamlinmusic.com
Frontman Wolf commands the stage with his powerful Southern and country rock voice but the incredibly tight Front Proch Drifters nearly steal the show with their powerful sound. You don't want to miss this performance!

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

Meet at Schoolhouse Flats at 9:00
Join Reverend Terry Burley of Living Water Band for an informal Gospel Music workshop.
Come out and learn a couple of songs for Sunday's Gospel gathering!

Folk Rock

marcmaynon.com

Marc had an affinity for singing as a child, discovered the guitar at college, and shortly thereafter, developed his love for songwriting. His music has been described as having a vintage, natural, poetic style with a folk-rock vibe. One critic wrote, "Think Jim Croce storytelling, the melodies have a very natural progression."
Chris Ahlman

Pop / Folk / Rock

chrisahlman.com
Sit back and enjoy this singer/songwriter's accoustic pop, folk and rock arrangements. The Contra Costa resident has three fully orchestrated albums but is currently playing mostly solo with just a guitar. Some of Chris' influences are Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Counting Crows, and Neil Young.
Jack Quigley

Smorgasbord

Saturday Afternoon Main Stage

Music starts a wee bit before noon



Truth Without Fear

Power Trio - guitar/bass/kit

Truth Without Fear on facebook
If you were lucky enough to make it out to our February Fest Fundraiser at R-Place in Livermore you heard these guys kick it out. They've taken awards in three Battle of the Band competitions, and we'd like to give them one for supporting Two Day Town with a last minute fill-in! What they say... "Truth Without Fear is a power trio that plays original compositions and puts their own spin on classic jams. We play music all over the San Francisco Bay Area."
Rhythm Crew

Rockin' Blues & Classic Rock

Rhythm Crew on facebook
These folks also donated their talents for our February Fest, and we're happy to get them on our big stage. The Rhythm Crew plays the best of "Rockin' Blues" along with Classic Rock favorites. Their song list is designed to engage the audience to get on their feet and sing along. Rhythm Crew spans the generations and plays recognizable, relatable, party music. We have fun, it shows, and it's contagious!
Charmas

Celtic-Fusion

charmasband.com
New to Two Day Town, Charmas says its Celtic-fusion style evolved from its early days as a traditional Celtic folk band into a five-piece rock/pop band whose original comedy songs and ballads are a mix of modern lyrics and the occasional unconventional use of traditional intruments. Picture a Great Highland Bagpipes riffing a line originally performed with an electric guitar.
Big Sticky Mess

Hooks / Grooves / Beats

bigstickymess.com
Best Band Name Ever. Seriously, this band's sound is waaaaay bigger than its three members. Described as a "kaleidoscopic mix of extraterrestrial hooks, vibrant grooves and potent beats," these three guys will knock your socks off. Their colorful costumes alone are worth the price of admission.
ABELsound

Jazz / Blues Improv

anthonyotisdelaney.com
/abelsound
ABELsound is a funky, jazzy, bluesy improvisational trio featuring Brain Camara (drums), Lucien Smith (guitar), and Anthony Delaney (bass). Graciously instrumental (with occasional vocals), and deeply rooted in the East Bay vibe, ABELsound pours its own slow-simmered, improvisational, funky groove over anything from Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock to Pancho Sanchez and the Beatles. Come check out the new ABELsound!

Saturday Nap Time at the Amphitheater

Take a break! Relax and refresh yourself, or head to the Second Stage
at the public campground amphitheater for some fine unplugged music.



Nap Time!
3:00 - 6:00 PM
Right after our Main Stage afternoon music ends there will be acoustic music at the public campground amphitheater. The Nap Time session started out as a 'second stage' experiment several years ago and has become 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 peninsula between the parking lots (occasional round trips).
Chris LeBel

Top 40 / Classic Rock

chrislebelmusic.com/
Singer/songwriter Chris LeBel literally grew up at Two Day Town and look at him now! He's played all our stages twice and you don't want to miss his classic rock offerings. One day, you'll be saying you knew him when.
Rhyme & Reason

Americana & Blues, tinted

Rhyme & Reason on wix.com
Singer-songwriter Chris K. Head and mandolin player extraordinaire Steve Anderson offer a blend of original Americana / Blues, with a hint of jazz and country for sweetness and that extra tang... Having played venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, Chris & and Steve are seasoned performers that will compliment but not overwhelm your event. The duo has created an impressive song catalog which continues to grow. Stay tuned, as plans are underway to get back into the studio in 2017.
F Street Stompers

Updated Ragtime

F Street Stompers on facebook.com
Drawing upon the bluesy roots of America's storied soundtrack, The F Street Stompers breathe new life into turn of the century tunes. They blend the 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 cocktail guaranteed to put a pep in your step!
Crawdad Republic

Newgrass. In Craw We Dad.

crawdadrepublic.com
In Craw We Dad. What does that even mean? Who cares! These one-time children of Two Day Town have grown up to play a masterful "newgrass" sound with hand-in-glove harmonies, original lyrics that tap into their California lives and not-to-miss instrumentals. (Yes, you must find the shuttle bus and go to the Amphitheater.)

Saturday Evening Main Stage

Music starts around 6:00 PM


Roy Jeans

Armando-icana

armandosmartinez.com
Armando's; Open To Music
As one of Two Day Town's erstwhile founders and owner of the fabulous Armando's music club in Martinez, Roy occupies this time slot on the Main Stage every year. What does he do? Whatever he wants!
The Shop

Ferrucciana

Founding Two Day Town Mayor Michael Ferrucci brings us some vintage and modern rock, country and soul. We actually sort of goofed and left Michael off the final performer list and were trying to figure out how to squeeze in one more band when we had a timely cancellation in a perfect time slot. We did a quick little shuffle and fixed our omission. Whew! We don't want the mayor upset with us.
Michael McNevin

Folkgrass

michaelmcnevin.com
Six time West Coast Songwriters Association "Song of the Year" winner, Michael sings stories like Mark Twain weaves tales. If hearing Michael once a year at Two Day Town isn't enough (and it isn't), check out his Mudpuddle Shop in historic Niles Canyon where he hosts concerts and as a bonus, displays his Etch A Sketch art.
Hannah Jane Kile

Hannamericana

hannahjanekile.com
Performing with an openhearted sense of compassion and wonder, her voice soaring from an earthy blues swagger to an ethereal heart rending whisper, like a lullaby in a storm, she packs an emotional wallop. Eloquent, warm and wise in an innocent way, she has a comprehensive artistic vision, a vision that is as inspiring as it is engaging.
The Whoa

Alt Rock Reggae

thewhoaband.com
Formed in Concord a few years back, The Whoa came about via open mics & studio sessions hosted by Jason Young. They are a collection of unlikely guys that perform mostly original songs that can be loosely characterized as alternate rock reggae fun. Jason's vocals and rhythm guitar are met with Dan Jordan's guitar leads defining The Whoa's sound. Back this with Anthony Harrington on drums, Chris Gomez on bass, & Mike Moretti on keys and The Whoa will light up the house all night.
Bacchus Brothers

Funk.  Unk.

bacchus bros. on cdbaby
It wouldn't be Two Day Town without the Bacchus Brothers, who actually did put the "unk" in "funk." (We know because we watch them do it every year!) Don't miss your chance to see the Bacchus Brothers work their magic on the Main Stage.

That's all 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.

Outside Katz

Roaring Folka

is this thing on?
Hide the children. Naughty music about mountain lions and other ramblings. Original and not so original Dad band leans heavily on obscure 60s & 70s finds (their formative years). You can find them on the internet as soon as they figure out how that thing works.
KNR

Pop / Rock / Blues

weareknr.com
The three-piece KNR describes its sound as a mix of acoustic pop, rock, and blues along with top-notch vocal harmonies. Kevin, Nick, & Rob have been playing together in a variety of Livermore area bands for decades, and this combo grew out of one of their jam sessions. They perform a variety of old favorites mixed with original songs, with great harmonies.
Redmond O'Colonies

Tongue-In-Cheek

Redmond on wix.com
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll laugh some more. As Redmond says, his "passport through life is humor." He is always looking for the funny side and lucky for us, he shares his quirky observations in his songs and stories. He's a comedian. He's an actor. He's a musician. He's a singer. He's a raconteur. Prepare yourself for a fabulous set!
Alder Creek

Folkountrygrass

Alder Creek on youtube
Veteran Two Day Town performers, Alder Creek blends folk, classic, and contemporary country with bluegrass influence. The band's vocals and harmonies range from the style of Gillian Welch to Hank Williams as they perform music that celebrates historical tales, stories and classic roots styles.
The Drinking

Folk / Country

Outstanding Two Day Town citizen Matt Keebler describes his style as folk-country inspired progressions and songwriting. Join Matt as he delivers a lively set of original folk and country songs. So grab a cup at Matt's coffee bar, have a seat, take a sip, and just listen.

Sunday Afternoon Main Stage

Get yer buns on the grass by about 11


Fools Creek

Cajun Irish Mexican Puccini

foolscreek.com
Fools Creek is an East Bay band with a love of Cajun laments and Irish fiddle tunes, Mexican ballads and Puccini arias. They find gems from the dusty cupboards of folk and bluegrass, dust them off, and shine them up. Please give a warm welcome to Albin Renauer on guitar, Patty Contaxis on fiddle & mandolin, Dan Ringer-Barwick on guitar & bass, and Linda Schweidel on accordion & percussion. The band plays music they love and they make the audience feel it!

The Lost Cats

Jazz / R&B

thelostcats.com
Jim Passard is one of the few that have played a stage at Two Day Town every year since the start. For many of those years Sunday afternoon has been the time to hear their superb smooth jazz interpretations from a very broad songbook. Be there to chill out on the lawn with Jim's smoky vocalizing and his band's exquisite musicianship.
Groove.Org

Jazz / Rock / Samba

markholzinger.com
Groove.org has been the wrap up band at Two Day Town many times. Their music always seems to provide a perfect closing for us. Virtuoso guitarist Mark Holzinger, percussionist extraordinaire John Waller, and the exceptional bassist Justin Wilson describe their music as a contemporary blend of original funk, jazz, rock, and samba. Over the years we've heard those styles and everything from surf to psychedelic to theme songs, and you never know what other incredible talent they might recruit to join them on stage.

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