Matt Jaffe is a rock & roll singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on countless open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started taking music (a little bit) more seriously when Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record. Since then, Matt has continued to churn out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturate the market with gigs (opening for the likes of Mavis Staples, Wilco, and Blues Traveler), and collaborate with the likes of Chuck Prophet and Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T’s. Fresh off the release of his first LP, California’s Burning, Matt Jaffe is street-teaming with the best of them to bring rock & roll back to the masses.
Jon Mitguard has a masters from the Honky Tonk Music University. For over three decades he has been studying behind a pedal steel or dobro and played many a fine venue. His favorite situation is playing original music and kicking ass with great players like Danny Click and the Hell Yeahs. Often he is a support for others music but from the start Jon has been compelled to write songs as a vehicle of expression and exploration of unusual chord progressions. Original music lets you mix in all the music you like. His songs delve into all sorts of life’s quandaries, maybe even politics without getting out the 2 X 4.
Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Dore Coller has played with or members of Howard Alden, Darol Anger, Big Brother, Jeffrey Cain, Larry Campbell, Lacy J Dalton, Matt Eakle, Jerry Garcia, The David Grisman Quintet, Dan Hicks, David La Flamme (It’s a Beautiful Day), Snooky Flowers, The Hot Club of San Francisco, Maria Muldaur, Jeff Narell, David Nelson, Petty Booka, Van Morrison, Pablo Cruise, Quicksilver, Starship, The Rowan Brothers, The Waybacks, and The Youngbloods.
