Live entertainment by:

Addie singing

Addie & The Subtrax

Heart melting yet rejuvenating, plucky yet ephemeral, Addie Liechty and her band of six combine folk, blues and bluegrass influences to create a show that engages the audience to clap, sway, and often ruminate over the honest and exposed lyrics. They combine guitar, fiddle, banjo, upright bass, light percussion and thickly layered harmonic vocals to create a sound all their own that never fails to charm the audience into willful submission and to feel like their heart strings have been pleasantly tugged.

Steppin’ Out Dancers

Founded by Angela Dorantes and Avilee Goodwin, Steppin’ Out Dance Studio began in 1995,  evolving out of the historic Betty May Dance Studios. “Throughout our history we have strived to offer the young people of the neighborhood a place to learn dance techniques, improve grace, poise, self-esteem, and gain performing experience without a competitive atmosphere. We give children and young adults an outlet to express themselves freely through dance.”

Seconds on End

Proud to flaunt their Golden State roots, Seconds On End follow in the footsteps of all the great California rock groups gone by. Fusing elements from varying genres, 60’s psychedelic rock to funk, reggae and everything in between, they create a sound that is wholly their own. SOE have been wowing crowds in Norcal and beyond with their organic, groove-oriented jams
