40th Anniversary Benefit A Great Success!
A 40th anniversary only happens once in a lifetime, and this was by far a night to remember! Bobby McFerrin
brought down the house with his incredible jazz-improvisational stylings backed by the incomparable Yellowjackets and performing duets with his son Taylor and daughter Madison. SoVoSó
started the night off with intricate a cappella
creations that left our jaws dropped and our hearts wanting more! Take a look at the video and slideshow that were created to get an idea of what this exquisite night was like, or a refresher if you were lucky enough to attend. Thanks to all of our supporters and donors who made this night more than a success! Click here to check out the full blog post.
You may be familiar with her award-winning hit "Midnight at the Oasis" so you won't want to miss the chance to hear Maria Muldaur's latest songs at the very special blues and gospel brunch to benefit Bread & Roses at The Fenix in San Rafael on Sunday May 4. A long-time Bread & Roses volunteer performer, Maria will be joined by her Red Hot Bluesiana Band, the enchanting songwriter/guitarist & ukulele player Sofi Rox with violinist Dick Bright and composer/guitarist Aidan Nelson.

Noah's program at the Orin Allen Boys Rehabilitation Ranch in Byron, CA was an inspiring highlight of a day-long Black History program for 100 teen-age boys and staff at a detention work camp in Eastern Contra Costa County. Phillip's wonderful Nat King Cole concert with Si Perkoff on piano was applauded and lauded by a capacity crowd at The Tamalpais, a residential senior facility in Greenbrae.
