Lord Loves A Working Man

plus The Devil-Ettes dancing before each band!

Based out of the Mission District of San Francisco, Lord Loves A Working Man is a 9-piece band inspired by the raw and emotive sound of the Southern Soul shouters and horn-driven Rhythm & Blues of the 1960s. Mixing originals with obscure covers, LLAWM puts everything they got into respectfully invoking the spirit of old soul music while giving it their own distinct voice. "These men pour their hearts out in songs that make audience members alternately work up a sweat and hold each other very, very close." -SF Weekly

"The Struts are a five-piece, female fronted, full-throttle rhythm and blues outfit from Oakland, CA. They've got a high energy live show, a dedicated Bay Area fan base and an exciting "Rhythm-N-Grit" sound. Simply put... It's fast. It's loud. And when singer, Farrah Ancell, steps up to the microphone -- when you hear her deliver that first note with all the grit and growl of a young Etta James -- you'll know something serious is about to go down. It's punk rock in the juke joint and it swings like a mother." --SF Chronicle

The Hi-Nobles play soul from the garage, and garage from the soul. With a precision-tight band holding together a live show in danger of bursting apart, a beat to get you out on the floor and the tunes to keep you there all night, The Hi-Nobles testify and deliver! It's abandon and energy, pounding and resounding, the 60s mod garage soul returning to the 21st century. Played with fever, sung with inspiration, brash, bold, too hot to hold, hard driving, always striving, too cool for your school, too raw for your ma!

SF's go-go sweethearts show off their dance moves before each band. "The Devil-Ettes make an extra effort to deliver an authentic go-go dancing act. Working as a collective, they spend hours examining old '60s beach party films, television shows, records and wardrobes to respectfully replicate the Watusi, the Twist and the Swim - all with the right wink and a smile." --SF Chronicle
