Taking our show on the road again, this time we landed at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael with Oakland’s own T Sisters and our old pals Hillstomp from Portland, Oregon. Fall in love with the T’s beautiful harmonies and wonderful covers of the Grateful Dead, Lady Gaga and Chumbawamba and rock out to the raw hill country blues stomp of Hillstomp, a band we first discovered playing in the bushes of Golden Gate Park some 10 years ago.
Before their nighttime show in the Grate Room at Terrapin Crossroads on Saturday 1/20, we’re thrilled to be hosting the T Sisters (trio) and Hillstomp in the bar for a FREE matinee at 4pm. RSVP here. If you’re not on Facebook please leave a message below if you plan on attending.
Oakland’s T Sisters embody harmony. It’s in their blood, bones, and history. Erika, Rachel and Chloe have been singing and writing music together since childhood. You’ll be blown away by their effortless melodies and gorgeous tunes.
Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo Hillstomp is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp.
Please join us in the afternoon, have some dinner afterwards and stick around for the show in the Grate Room that night. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in Marin.
Chris Robinson was the perfect guest. Charming, funny, self-deprecating and insanely talented. We laughed, we cried and just had a ball as Chris talked about his latest project the Chris Robinson Brotherhood as well the Black Crowes, growing up in the South and his love for the Bay Area and the Grateful Dead. Oh, and the tunes were spectacular too. Enjoy this special show.
Dubbed “Xmas in October” as that’s when this episode was taped, this fun show was recorded early to accommodate a TV special. Soundwaves Xmas 2017 is airing on various TV stations throughout the Bay Area thru December. On it you’ll find Renee and Irish Greg hosting some of it as well as wonderful performances, seasonal and otherwise, by the Sam Chase, Matt Jaffe and Rabbit Quinn.
Renee & Irish Greg's Pop UP!

We had a mighty fine evening at Mighty Fine Guitars in Lafayette in the cool little venue that sits behind the store. A full house was treated to music by proprietor Stevie Coyle and his musical partner Glenn Houston under the moniker The Quitters. Then we were joined by famed photographer Jay Blakesberg who regaled us with stories about being the Grateful Dead’s official photographer and his Tom Petty picture that is currently on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s special on the late great rocker. Finally Jimmy Dillonclosed out the night and told us about life on the road with Clarence Clemons, playing Bill Clinton’s inauguration and making a record with John Lee Hooker.
We had a truly special night with Steve Earle who was unexpectedly joined by Bob Weir at the Haight St Art Center in a benefit for the Blue Bear School of Music. Steve played a couple of songs by himself including “Copperhead Road” and then Bob joined him for a few tunes that ended with the Grateful Dead’s “I Know You Rider.” Awesome!
