The North Bay: Rock and Roll Music | Blues | Progressive Rock | Folk | Alternative

Musicians gravitate to the San Francisco Bay Area ; it’s climate, it’s offerings, it’s lifestyles. It all started here with The Summer of Love, Haight Ashbury and Bill Graham's magic bands. The North Bay is still a nexus for musicians with it’s night clubs, pubs and wineries, all of which host regular professional, semi-pro and amateur acts. Come along each week and hear these musicians put their all into expressing themselves with their original music.

Get your energy up with live music recorded in binaural stereo so that when you listen with headphones you feel as though you are there. Live, raw and filled with the emotion of the moment.

Episode 23: PatJordanBand@RedWhite&Boom

We’re back after a small hiatus thanks to time off and some rethinking about the show which I’ll mention after we hear this shows’ act.  This week’s show was recorded on July 4th at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds during their annual Red, White and Boom festival which ends with the expected fireworks display.
This shows’ act is the Pat Jordan Band. A group of guys who are mostly from the local area.  Their sound is familiar and is influenced by… well… I’ll let you decide.  

Thanks to Pat Jordan and the rest of the band. Check out their myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/48003815.
Lately we’ve been slower on getting the show out… Why?  Well… the download rate has not met my expectations, the venues have had well challenges and the bands are way too slow on signing the releases.  So… continuing the show is kind of up in the air.  The shows stay available and downloads may increase at which time I may pick up the pace again.  We’ll see.  If you like the show stay tuned… that is do not delete the feed just yet.
