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 »

Multi-Instrumentalist

photo by Beautiful Songwriter, Amy Obenski

She is a delightful performer, sings with such grace, she’s a multi-instrumentalist and a looper. She makes some interesting music and can serenade you while you sip wines from all over the world.

About Amy Obenski

Amy Obenski’s soothing yet powerful vocals lay at the forefront of her music treating each word with care and attention. The music glides seamlessly between Folk, Jazz and Rock, with her vocals shape-shifting to fit the mood. With what have been described as “gripping” lyrics and “haunting” vocals, Amy’s songs are conveyed to the audience on an extraordinarily intimate level.

In 2007 her song, “Carousel”, was heard on the TV show Grey’s Anatomy, taking the song to number twenty-three on the iTunes Folk Chart. Before that, her second album had been receiving play on MTV’s program, MADE, which is still using her music today. Both su . . . More »

I always invite music friends up to play with us, so if you’re a musician, come on by and sit in with us. It’s a hoot - and the food is delicious! Happy to have Ron Beckett with us on bass.

About The Fields of Eden

Singer/Songwriter, Kiki Wow, plays regularly throughout the Monterey Peninsula both classic favorites and original songs. Her engaging vocals and rhythm guitar hit a delightful and familiar chord that has her audiences singing along from the first song on. Greg Edenfield, drummer and mix engineer, puts the right rhythm to all of the songs. He`s got a different kit for each gig, really fun to watch. Ron Beckett is a great new bass player in the area. He`s also a mummy archeologist! Such a pleasure to have Ron keeping the bottom end full of rhythm.

This is a BLUEGRASS night with a wonderful local band, Hilltown. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen/heard them but they sure are a crowd-pleaser.

About Hilltown

Named after the little town that grew out of the well traveled Salinas river fording site of the mid 1800s, the newly formed four-piece bluegrass band Hilltown is sure to get your toes a tapping. All of the band members live in the Monterey area; three on hills overlooking the bay and the other just across from the old Hilltown site in Salinas--hence the name. Three of the band members, also of the venerable Fog Valley Drifters based mainly in Modesto, were looking for a way to stay in practice locally and invited guitar flat picker par excellence and singer Norm Green to join in.

What a voice!

Wes Speight, an excellent multi-instrumentalist, is on tour in this area again. I took a chance on him last year and I was not one bit disappointed. He’s absolutely great and if you like Jim Morrison - you’re gonna dig him big time! Do yourself a favor and check it out.

About Wes Speight

“There are a great many blues-rock bands in Seattle these days, but the one led by songwriter Wes Speight is notable for its particularly gritty and gutty take on the genre.” - Seattle Weekly “The swagger... of a Jim Morrison, the chilly command of an Ian Curtis, the rough, masculine soul of a Greg Dulli. As a singer, Speight possesses a soulful voice, which he bends and distorts to fit whatever effect he`s going for.” - Rev. Adam McKinney, The New Frontier Lounge, Tacoma WA “His music gets better and better as the days go on and we’re excited for his new Rejection Letter EP. It’s reflective, stripped down, classic and bol . . . More »
