The Blues Daddies began in Kensington, California, in 1995, since the “dads” had children in the same elementary school. Beginning as a Motown-Stax-Rock cover band, 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.

Douglass Truth is a painter, writer, and performer. He lives in Nevada City, CA, and performs his show An Intimate Evening with Death, Herself as often as he can. He has worked as a designer and surveyor in Alaska, a chef, building dismantler, English teacher, a software salesman in Taiwan; he prefers making art. 

Jean Ellisen has been telling stories all her life, but telling stories on purpose for over 25 years, locally, nationally, and internationally. Her passion is helping others, young and old, find their own voice through storytelling.

Each of us tells a story in our own unique way. Maryclare McCauley enjoys movement and acting out the dialogue between the characters, so it’s almost as if you are watching a play. Tonight you will see an excerpt from a new story she is developing called, Finding Balance. Some of us have had a rocky beginning in life, and those early imprints can cause all sorts of trouble, and some very unexpected delights.

Daniel Rudman has had plays performed in Berkeley, SF, Santa Cruz, and Paris. He won the Bay Area Critics' Circle award for Best New Play in 1981. Tri "G" Le is a Bay Area actor studying at UC Berkeley. He is interested in learning and sharing the untold stories of all backgrounds.   Mick Renner has acted in Bay Area theatres for 45 years, including Berkeley Rep, Eureka Theatre, Berkeley Shakes, and solo performances in San Francisco and Boulder Fringe Festivals.
