Thanks to everyone who participated in and attended Winter Hoot Fest and our Mardi Gras party! This is an incredibly fun community we have here and I am very happy that everyone is committed to making this music scene grow.
I want everybody to know that there is now an opportunity for you to join the Hootenanny movement by making monthly donations to the organization if you feel moved to help.
I will keep this project going out of sheer love for it, of course, but the added contributions would make it much easier. This money would help me pay artists better (while keeping ticket prices low) and hire assistants for staffing and promoting events and other Hootenanny creations.
Your contributions would also help me go above-and-beyond what I have been able to do in the past, building the organization and branching out into the greater community…
- Project 1: Make the Hootenanny a non-profit organization
- Project 2: Produce a FREE outdoor music event somewhere in the North Bay
- Project 3: Start a podcast featuring local and traveling performers.
- Other future milestones include a team-up with a visual artist, a live concert video series, and a specially-recorded North Bay music compilation.
Let’s bring the North Bay sound to the world! See how you can be a part of it at www.patreon.com/northbayhootenanny
The North Bay has always opened its arms wide to the music of New Orleans: Brass Bands, Jazz, Zydeco, Cajun… the list goes on.
We want you to come out on Fat Tuesday (Feb 17th) to celebrate Mardi Gras and the North Bay / New Orleans connection with our very own T Luke and the Tight Suits! Bandleader Lucas Domingue is a second generation North Bay rock star, continuing a tradition of Louisiana music in California. Come check it out!
Details: The show will be this Tuesday (2/17) at 755 After Dark (formerly Aubergine – 755 Petaluma Ave in Sebastopol). Tickets are 8-12 dollars, sliding scale. Show is from 8pm to midnight. The Kyle Martin Band will open the show, and we will also be serving gumbo!
