Patchy Sanders, with Sound of Sirens opening
Patchy Sanders, a genuine family band, comprised of sisters Dani (banjo, harp) and Jacqui Aubert (vocals), their partners Ian Van Ornum (mandolin, bouzouki, guitar) and Dan Sherrill (guitar, banjo, mandolin), and good friends Sara Wilbur (violin, viola), Eric Jones (upright bass), and Alex Patterson (drums & percussion). While some find it easy to characterize their music, others hesitatingly distinguish their style as noir-grass, neo-folk, neo-Americana, or simply Alternative. Influenced by the broader folk revival of the last 70+ years, the band's three distinct songwriters draw upon diverse influences to bring forth a new, yet familiar sound.
Studio 55 Marin proprietors Ken and Susan are bringing back their band Sound of Sirens for short opening set, to showcase their new sound with their new guitar player, Jared Karol. Jared is a wonderful roots finger-picker, specializing in rags and blues, but great at all acoustic styles. Ken Frankel has been part of the California music scene since the 1960's, performing with music notables such as Jerry Garcia, Richard Greene, and Robert Hunter.
Susan Nielsen ("Susan Siren") has shared stages with many national stars, sung in many local groups, and worked as a professional studio singer. Kristina Ziess ("Stina Siren") sang in many popular bands in Seattle, but now has moved to the Bay Area to become one of our "Sirens". Scott Underwood has performed with various Bay Area music acts since the 1980s, including as a member of Acoustic Son.
