 Live Music & Dancing


Nothing finer than a stage, some hay bales, a dance floor and these guys playing live

from the field's edge!


Old Man Markley

On Stage: 9:00 p.m.


This 8-piece amalgamation of bluegrass and punk has shared the bill with big name acts such as Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, NOFX, and The Devil Makes Three; and they're coming to rock our tomato festival!  We're talking about captivating three part harmonies, nimble instrumentation, and an energetic, raucous performance from this band filled with fiddle, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, guitar, washboard, drums, autoharp and a home-made washtub bass.  


The West Nile Ramblers

On Stage: 6:30 p.m.


With a combination of country, western swing, bluegrass, jazz, and original tunes, The West Nile Ramblers of Yolo county will have us dancing and singing along to their guaranteed energetic and eclectic western sound.



The Pleasant Valley Boys

On Stage: 4:00 p.m.


Vocal harmonies, razor sharp mandolin, and old time exact banjo by Matt and George are the central elements of the Pleasant Valley Boy's stylish and traditional bluegrass music done right.  Coming from Dixon, CA and backed by expert stand-up bass, fiddle, and guitar you don't want to miss this terrific bluegrass ensemble.
