The Nickel Slots

The Nickel Slots take you on a journey through hard times and desperation that always carries hope that better things are just around the corner. With influence from early roots Americana music as well as a touch of rebellious ’70s punk, The Nickel Slots draw the line that connects Johnny Cash to The Clash. From the sentimental folk tune to the foot-stomping, raucous sing-along, their rocking Americana brings you back to a long-lost memory or shared experience of pain, joy, heartache, love, hope, and redemption.

The Andrew Stephens Quartet

The Andrew Stephens Quartet embodies a fusion of tradition and innovation, led by the virtuosic trumpet of Andrew Stephens. A prominent figure in NYC’s jazz scene since 2021, Stephens, currently pursuing a master’s degree at Juilliard, has graced prestigious stages, including Carnegie Hall, with performances ranging from Wynton Marsalis’ Swing Symphony to collaborations with the Hot Sardines. With roots in Sacramento and honed in the Bay Area, Stephens infuses his music with the spirit of Louis Armstrong while pushing boundaries with his own projects. Alongside accomplished bandmates, the quartet creates an electrifying sonic tapestry that draws from the depths of traditional jazz while embracing the cutting edge of contemporary improvisation.

Big Mike & The HartBeats

What do you get when you have 5 horn players, 5 rhythm players and 2 vocalists?  You get Big Mike & the HartBeats.

Our main goal is to have a great time playing music and to get people up and dancing.  We have really enjoyed giving back to the community by playing for worthwhile events such as Relay for Life, Breast Cancer Walk for the American Cancer Society and for the American Diabetes Association.  But most of all, we really like playing music from the 60’s to today.  It is a great way to spend time with family and friends and to inspire those out in the community to revisit the sound of live music.
