|14th Annual SFFD Toy Drive with your host Smelley Kelley's Wagon Tongue (7:30 pm - 10:30 pm PST)|
The San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program, run by the SF Fire Fighters Union, Local 798, is the city's largest and the nation's oldest program of its kind. Since 1949, it has evolved from a few firefighters repairing broken toys and bikes for 15 families to over 300 firefighters and friends volunteering their time to distribute over 200,000 toys to more than 40,000 disadvantaged children year-around. Besides helping individual families in need, the Toy Program serves many community organizations, including shelters for abused women and children, inner-city schools, neighborhood groups, children's cancer wards, and pediatric AIDS units. We also respond on a year-round basis to displaced children who become victims of fires, floods and other such disasters.
Bring an unwrapped present for the children and join Smelley Kelley's Wagon Tongue for festive music and frolics.

|Caleb Ford and the Motor City (9:30 pm - 12 am PST)|
Caleb Ford brings a truly unique voice to the world stage. His music combines roots rock, blues, Americana, honkytonk, and influences as far afield as the Caribbean and West Africa. He grew up in Detroit, and has traveled the world, from Kingston to Beijing, New York to Paris, making music and growing as an artist along the way. Currently residing in Oakland, CA, his music reflects his travels and life experiences. The son of southern ministers, Caleb grew up in a family of musicians and his sound reflects those familial influences (from his mother's soulful gospel piano playing and singing, to his father's rockabilly guitar playing, and his older brother's deep south blues and southern rock songwriting).
Caleb has recorded, performed, and collaborated with such musical luminaries as Buddy Miles (The Band of Gypsys), Billy Davis (Hank Ballard and the Midnighters), Clark Gayton (Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band), Lucky Dube, Luciano, Motor City Josh, Eddie Kirkland, Chino Swingslide, Noel 'Noni' Alphonso, Computer Paul, Sugar Minott, Andy Bassford, Val Douglas, Kevin Batchelor, and many others.
His debut solo record 'A World Unknown' was released on October 13th. The album was produced by blues legend Motor City Josh at Sound Shop Studios in Detroit, Michigan. He will be kicking off an international tour in support of the new album in the summer of 2018 with stops in North America, Europe, and Asia.

|Joe Goldmark and The Seducers (7:30 pm - 10:30 pm PST)|
Joe Goldmark and The Seducers
Joe Goldmark's group, The Seducers got their name from his latest CD, 'Seducing the 60s' and the band features musicians from that album. Their take on country music is fun and innovative while being true to its roots. The Seducers have been a Sunday night fixture at The Riptide in San Francisco, as well as other hot spots, and never fail to put on an exciting and entertaining show. Eddie Kendrick, Ken Owen, Hank Maninger & Joe Goldmark, on bass, drums, guitar and pedal steel respectively, have played together and separately in many great bands. These include Jim Campilongo & The 10 Gallon Cats, Peter Rowan, The Hacienda Brothers, Bonnie Hayes, The Dave Gleason Band, Jim Lauderdale, The Twangbangers, Rancho Deluxe, and Dallas Wayne, to name a few. Eddie & Hank sing beautifully. See the recent review at S. F. Weekly. Come out and see us every fourth Sunday of the month at the Riptide, Taraval near 48th Ave. from 7:30-10:30PM, no cover.
