About Karrie Pavish Anderson

Galena, Alaska, a remote village on the Yukon River might seem an unlikely locale for a singer-songwriter with an active touring and recording career. Karrie Pavish Anderson flourishes in this remote locale accessible only by plane, an indigenous Athabascan community where resilience and fortitude are rooted in the frozen darkness of winter and the glorious arrival of the midnight sun. There are no Wal-Marts or Starbucks in Galena and no recording studios, so Karrie tracked her 2012 CD Once Blind in Los Angeles. Over a one-week span, a cast of empathic musicians and vocalists breathed life into the tracks. Strings, a gospel choi . . . More »

David Vidal
American Roots
Trailside Cafe Beer Garden   831-298-7453
3 Del Fino Place, Carmel Valley
On Tour from L.A.

Greg met David Vidal in a recording studio in L.A., and came home and said, "you gotta book this guy, he’s got some stellar songs." It’s true, I play his CD all the time, love his songwriting and songs stay with me. Hope you’ll come and check it out - he plays a cigar box as well as guitar, harmonica. Very refreshing.

About David Vidal

David Vidal grew up in New Mexico and Colorado, in a musical family that moved often. His father was a boogie woogie piano player, who also sang cowboy songs accompanied by guitar. His three older sisters had a vocal trio that performed at churches and schools. Vidal taught himself guitar from a book of blues standards, and started playing in jam bands bands in high school in Denver. After graduating, he took off hitchhiking across America, guitar in hand. He wandered up to Oregon, through Canada and up to Alaska. Over to Minnesota and Michigan. Chicago, Washington D.C., New York City and up to Vermont. He landed for awhile in Mi . . . More »

Boscoe’s Brood
Singer/Songwriter
Caffe Trieste   831-241-6064
409 Alvarado Ave., Monterey
One Man Band

This man gets around, and brings his rig everywhere so he’s ready to play. He’s a looper, he’s a harmonizer, he writes great songs and covers great songs we all know.

About Boscoe’s Brood

BOSCOE’S BROOD (aka Sam Regalado) earned his musical stripes in the Los Angeles coffee house, bar and nightclub scene. Weaned on the music of The Beatles, his tastes and songwriting style eventually expanded and came to include progressive, alternative, harmonic and pop genres; those that today he blends into a creative acoustic sound. Many of his songs are often windows designed to observe the often-quirky lives and habits of everyday people. A veteran road warrior, Boscoe’s Brood has amassed considerable performance miles from San Diego through Seattle, having serenaded music lovers throughout the west with his with guitar, loop, . . .

Crowd Pleaser

He’s turning heads and ears his way. Together with Jacqueline Kabat, we hope to pack the house.

About Zack Freitas

When I tell people I play music, they naturally ask me, "What kind of music do you play?". The easiest way to explain that is to describe what they already know. Include a genre and a few bands I like, and that`s how I sound. At face value in a conversation that works just fine and then we can change the subject. But what people may not understand is I just simply write brutally honest music from my heart. As a songwriter, there`s particular things I`ll draw from, mainly experiences I have. I tend to work with themes such as depression, social commentary, angst, existentialism, & dependence (whether it be a substance, or love fr . . . More »
