Funcrunch concert March 31, plus bonus pics - the funcrunch files


Mar. 3rd, 2008 09:23 pm Funcrunch concert March 31, plus bonus pics

Please join me, boyziggy, Mike Fortes, Steve Kirk, Rex Pembroke, and Mike Avery at Café du Nord on Monday, March 31 to see our band, Funcrunch, perform in the Blue Bear School of Music showcase. We have an awesome selection of rock songs spanning many decades from such great bands as Led Zeppelin, Audioslave, Yes, and even our own guitarist/composer Rexy Rockstar. This band is a custom workshop (not on the Blue Bear class schedule) hand-picked by me, but I am not the (only) star; we have no fewer than four singers in our group, and several will be taking leads on songs. Steve is our wonderful teacher and will be playing and singing right along with us.

Our 40-minute set begins at 9:30 and we're told all bands will be starting on time this year (really!), so you should be out of the club before bedtime. But if you'd like to hang around, there are four workshops that night, plus additional performers on a second stage in between acts. Café du Nord is a classy joint and getting four nights of shows there is a great boon to Blue Bear, so I encourage you to come support our nonprofit school and enjoy the evening. You can purchase tickets in advance, $10-$20 sliding scale, or buy them at the door. The club is located at 2170 Market Street in San Francisco, and is easy to get to by public transit (Church St. Station or F-line streetcar).

We were given some publicity materials for the show, but I don't like our photo much - you can see it in the above ticket link or on the official flyer, but I much prefer the alternate pic that mike20 came up with. ;-) And here are some other pix of our band members:

It's awfully late for me, but I really want to be there, so I'll take an afternoon nap in preparation.

I saw Steve Hackett there a couple of years ago, but he was playing upstairs in that funky Valhalla-like hall.

I know you're an early sleeper - thanks in advance for staying up late to support me! I hear we're having shows on two different stages so maybe the second one is the one you mention (I haven't been to the club yet, myself)
