SMITTY RAY! Emcees the DAY!

Bad Boys Zydeco
Kick off the day with the Louisiana Delta sounds featuring Evo Bluestein on button accordian, fiddle, and vocals with accompaniment on guitar, bass, scrubboard and drums. Evo and his brother, Jemmy, learned his craft directly from legendary Louisiana masters of Cajun and zydeco music.
Dancin' Guaranteed!

It's a Tommy Castro year and
we're just SO Happy to have our
"home-town" boy here to toast
Raymond's 50th! "Castro, current
king of the San Francisco blues
scene, is an
elastic, chillingly
intense vocalist and scorching
who knows just when
to lay back and when to invade . ."
Lee Hildebrand,
The East Bay Express
