The Powerhouse Brewing Company was a fixture in downtown Sebastopol for 9 years from 1995-2004. The Powerhouse was the most acclaimed microbrewery/restaurant and the premier Live Music venue (over 1000 shows by National touring acts) in the North Bay. Bill Bradt, co-founder of the Powerhouse and the driving force behind the club's musical legacy, passed away in January 2011. Join us as the musical celebration of the memory of Bill Bradt and the Powerhouse continues at the 2nd Annual POWERHOUSE NIGHT at Aubergine after Dark in Sebastopol!
Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste is a master drummer, rhythm innovator, percussionist, and New Orleans legend. The most highly acclaimed drummer ever to hail from the Crescent City, Ziggy's creativity has been a wellspring of funk influence for three decades and inspired many Hip-Hop tracks. His innovative work as a member of the internationally acclaimed R&B group, The Meters, as well as his side work with artists like Keith Richards, Robert Palmer, and Dr. John, has garnered him an unparalleled level of respect among musicians and fans. Zigaboo Modeliste was one of the very first acts to play at the then newly opened The Powerhouse Brewing Company back in 1995, and he was a club favorite for the next nine years. In 2012 Zig and The Meters were on the ballot for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, and he is currently featured in producer Mark Ronson's Re:Generation Music Project where he wrote and performs the original song "A La Modeliste" with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, and members of The Dap Kings. North Bay favorites Jug Dealers will open the show with their unique brand of funky jams. Benefitting Sonoma Humane Society.
