Performers

Groove to live music with recording artists Nellie McKay, Heather Maloney, Surrealistic Superjam, and special guests from the Summer of Love including Country Joe McDonald, Pete Sears, and many more.

Surrealistic Superjam

A who’s who of legendary and contemporary Bay Area jamsters, the supergroup Surrealistic Superjam performs a stellar set of Summer of Love classics from one of the most influential times in pop music history. Members of the Jerry Garcia Band, ALO, Nicki Blum & the Gamblers, Moonalice, the Terrapin Family Band, and Tarnation are joined by special guests Pete Sears and Country Joe McDonald.

Nellie McKay

Nellie McKay co-created and starred in the award-winning off-Broadway hit Old Hats and has written three acclaimed musical biographies, as well as releasing six full-length albums. Her latest, My Weekly Reader, travels to the 1960s, “a land of strange and wonderful music . . . revisiting some of the melodies born out of that fertile, conflicted time.”

Heather Maloney

Heather Maloney set out to make “a bad-ass indie rock record,” and the result is her latest, Making Me Break, which landed the Massachusetts-based singer-songwriter on Spin Magazine’s “Artists to Watch” list. “I am drawn to lyrics that are meaningful, intelligent, tell a story, paint pictures . . . that care,” says Maloney, who has been described as a classically trained voice with a definite edge.
