Jim Kweskin
Jim Kweskin
The Legendary Jim Kweskin was the leader of the irreverent, eclectic and influential mid-1960's folk revivalists the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and has become a truly significant contributor to American music. Jim Kweskin's shows radiate of charm, humor, sophistication, as well as talent. Jim sings a collection of familiar songs by Benny Goodman, Johnny Mercer, the Sons of the Pioneers, Fats Waller and Somethin' Smith & the Redheads. There's an endearing sense of good humor to Kweskin's versions that makes his performances a charming delight. Jim rarely performs these days, which makes this show truly special.

For the past 5 years the Sonoma County-based group, The King Street Giants, have brought their own special version of New Orleans music to the Bay Area. Whether they’re playing in clubs or on the streets, The King Street Giants are infamous for radiating an infectious energy and always having a blast. While continuing to play the music of their heroes (Louis Armstrong & The All Stars, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Thelonious Monk, Jackson 5), they have also been writing original music in an effort to continue to evolve the idiom of Traditional New Orleans Jazz.


The King Street Giants have shared the stage with such acts as Bonnie Raitt, Galactic, Rebirth Brass Band, The Wood Brothers, Charlie Musselwhite, New Orleans Suspects, Tuba Skinny, Dustbowl Revival, and many more. Their sounds have been heard at Strawberry Music Festival, Petaluma Music Festival, San Jose Jazz Fest, Healdsburg Jazz Fest, Sausalito Arts Festival, Lagunitas Beer Circus and Honk Fest West, and have appeared at events and in commercials for the San Francisco Giants. Winners of the North Bay Bohemian's "Best of" Best Band in Sonoma County award in 2017, The King Street Giants released a new album of instrumental originals titled "Dressed & Ready to Go" in February, 2017.
