The Line UP


The Chris Cobb Band and Jam!   notes_icon.gif (81 bytes)
Back for the third year  Chris KICKS OFF and Closes the day!!!  Chris and the Band are The Bean Hollow Blues House Band and Bay Area Blues Band fixture!  Our ultimate host band  with their own hard drivin' music, Chris gets everyone in on the action by generously inviting Toez Jammin' Time for all who have the urge! Bring your instrument and join in for Final Jam of the Day!

All the way from Louisiana, with special guest, exciting Bay Area keyboardist, Dave Gorges, with an all original inaugural CD, Preaching the Grease, this Baton Rouge funk-rock trio has earned the coveted, "DOuble Horn" rating.   "I don't just give double horns away, you're got to earn it."  This 3-piece sounds like what veteran blues players want to sound like.  "Check out the blistering lead guitar" - RHYTHM CITY, 8/99

We're just SO happy that The TCB Boys are back again at Bean Hollow!  The entire band - Tommy, Keith, Randy and Billy - play tight and fierce with a solid party vibe!  You know THEY'RE havin' fun and so do we!

"Castro, current king of the San Francisco blues scene, is an elastic, chillingly intense vocalist and scorching guitarist who knows just when to lay back and when to invade . ."
Lee Hildebrand, The East Bay Express

MUMBO GUMBO notes_icon.gif (81 bytes)
If you're not dancin' during this set, you'd better check for a pulse!  This extremely infectious Gulf Coast influenced 7 piece band features two FABULOUS women singers - one who plays a mean washboard -,  plus a spritely accordionist, and a sure-footed and funky rhythm section.  Combining the freshest ingredients of Americana pop, blues, zydeco, Tex-Mex, New Orleans Voodoo Mambo, reggae, and rock and roll, Mumbo Gumbo is original music that feels GREAT!!
