The Blues Daddies began in 1995 in Kensington as a Motown-Stax-Rock cover band. The “dads” had children in the same elementary school. Since then, the band has evolved in its sound and has become more agile and progressive. While still playing homage to music of the 1950’s and ‘60’s, more modern music is now part of the repertoire as well. The Blues Daddies are available for your listening and dancing pleasure.

Jeanne Lupton writes memoir for page and stage, and is happy to be back at Tell it on Tuesday with this work.  She hosts a monthly reading series at Frank Bette Center for the Arts in Alameda and leads a weekly memoir writing group for seniors at her home, Strawberry Creek Lodge in Berkeley. 

Claire Wahrhaftig, a native San Franciscan, closed out her career in arts administration as the Executive Director of the SF Arts Commission. She continues her study of storytelling at Stagebridge where she completed the two-year EPIC program under Kirk Waller.

Elaine Magree has written, directed/collaborted or performed new work at The Marsh, The Magic Theatre, California Shakespeare Festival, Z Space, The Working Women’s Theatre Festival, Brava, The Exit Theatre, The People’s Theatre Festival, The National Women’s Theatre Festival and The Minneapolis, Winnipeg and Victoria Fringe Festivals. She taught theatre at Solano College, SF City College, East Bay Center for The Performing Arts and in homeless shelters, recovery centers, and the Sacramento county jail. This is her third solo piece. Sometimes a wave, sometimes a photon: you can’t be in two places at once, or can you?

Ethan Davidson is the child of two science fiction writers. At the age of 14, he was sent to Belize alone to look in on the family plantation. He remained there for a year. He has lived most of his life near or in San Francisco.
