Flight Deck Main Stage:
Steady Rollin Band (Traditional Bluegrass) 3pm - 3:45pm
Bio: The Steady Rollin’ Band, Hailing from all over the SF Bay Area, The Steady Rollin’ band brings their own unique twist to traditional and modern bluegrass and acoustic music. Covering the gambit from originals to familiar old standards, SRB’s vocal harmonies and driving rhythm will get your feet tapping and your heart pumping.

Tempest (Celtic Rock) 4:15pm – 5:30pm
Bio: Since forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered a globally-renowned hybrid of high-energy Folk Rock fusing Irish reels, Scottish ballads, Norwegian influences and other world music elements. The last 28 years have seen the San Francisco Bay Area based act release fifteen critically acclaimed CDs and play more than 2,000 gigs. It's also enjoyed an evolving line-up that's enabled musicianship and creativity to rise with each new member.

Swingin' Blue Stars (Vocal Jazz) 6pm - 6:45pm
The Swingin' Blue Stars is a group of talented singers from the East SF Bay area. We perform close harmony, swing style music made popular by 1940’s female vocal groups such as the Andrews Sisters. We sing and dance to “people-pleasing” music, mixing saucy and romantic WWII tunes that appeal to a variety of audiences, whether young or elderly.

Stompy Jones (Swing/Blues) 7:15pm – 8:30pm
Little David Rose's thumpin' stand-up bass, the double-shuffle drumming of Lee Beary, and the bounce piano of Scott Lawrence provide the rhythmic foundation of the band's jump style. Riffing on top is the trumpet sound of Robert Dehlinger and Jeff "Erv" Ervin on the saxophone. These two fellas create the fireworks of vintage rhythm and blues. The charming Glen Earl Brown Jr on vocals and have become a trademark of Stompy Jones. KQED, California Report interviewed Stompy Jones band leader & bass player, Little David Rose about his original San Francisco song "New Direction", take a listen!
