is a 10 piece All Star Band of Bay Area performers, actively playing tight and punishing original Dance Funk, Chicha Cumbia, and Dub Soul and even tearing through 1950’s style Rock N Roll with stinging horns, tight and deep pocket drum and bass, (and washboard!), wailing Fender guitars, blazing percussion and a power house set of vocalists, all from the SF Bay Area. Originally founded in Oakland California in 2007 by lead singer and guitarist Gardner Goetze, this band not only was hailed as San Francisco’s Grand Slam Party Band for its first tenure from ‘07-2012, but had a significant backing band presence on stage and studio behind a heavy list of Reggae and Funk musicians. Members split off to join their own bands and projects, but it has been put back together by Goetze once again, and this brand new incarnation is doubling down, Featuring members of Soul Ska, The Right Time, Vinyl, Sol Horizon, The Crooked Stuff, Pasto Seco and others. Come experience this unique Bay Area brand of funk, Soul, Latin, Dub, and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Sol Doc and GoersSol Doc and Goers are a Hip Hop duo based out of the SF Bay Area, California. Sol Doc's lyrics reflect his close ties with the land in which he was raised and his carefree yet conscious lifestyle. Growing up in West Marin surrounded by the rolling hills of Mt. Tamalpais and the curling waves of the coast you can take a walk into Sol Doc's reality through the mindful lyrical content and positive messages he exhibits. Goers is a producer based out of Oakland but raised in Marin. He has been creating music for over a decade and has created his own little niche of California Hip Hop through mixing the Bay Area Hip Hop he was raised on and the styles of his producer icons Oddisee, 9thWonder, Black Milk and of course J Dilla. Alongside producing, Goers is a Sound Engineer and not only produced, but recorded and mixed the entire debut album by Sol Doc and Goers titled “Breathe”.
Burst in the residual eddies the lingering essence of 1960 soul, The Optimystics consist of seven individuals committed to caring on this regions groove filled tradition.The most recent record was recorded by Kelly Finnigan of Monophonics a Transistor Sound studios in San Rafael CA
