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.

|Gina Villalobos & Amee Chapmann (7:30 pm - 11 pm PST)|
Influences: Rickie Lee Jones, Tom Petty, Patty Griffin
“Purveyors of the four-minute popular song usually stick to cataloging one emotion. Villalobos' compositions are not quite so simple, coming off the speakers like holographic Cracker Jack surprises that reveal a new depth with the slightest shift in light. Days On Their Side (Face West Records) finds her taking the Lucinda Williams/Sheryl Crow model to a new level. (And it’s about time someone did.)
-AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE
Influences: Lucinda Williams, Jeff Tweedy, Mary Gauthier
'... Proud daughter of a California that has gone astray, Chapman's working-class background and her respect for the state's oft-forgotten rural denizens mark her as a songwriter with a distinctive voice. Chapman shows a refreshing willingness to push musical boundaries, referencing muscular rock & roll, the expansive sonic textures of Wilco and the faded beauty associated with her pal Jolie Holland's torch songs. Chapman is a brave artist who appears to be poised for bigger things.' -SANTA CRUZ WEEKLY.

|Caleb Ford and the Motor City Ramblers (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.
Gear: Caleb plays several models of Fender Telecasters including his old trusty 1983 MIJ '72 Thinline Reissue, a MIJ '52 Reissue, and a custom Tim-ocaster (hand built by Tim Fowell). He also plays a Gretsch 6120EC (Eddie Cochran model), a 1952 Kay Thin Twin, and a 1964 Harmony Meteor. His acoustics include a 1930s Supertone, and a custom built Mule Resophonic tricone steel resonator guitar. He mainly plays Fender amplifiers, including a Blues Jr., Blues Deluxe, and Super Reverb, as well as a 1961 Silvertone 1482 combo amp.
