ABOUT THE BANDS:
Founded in San Francisco in 2012, Midtown Social is an original California Soul, nine-piece ensemble with a mission to spread positive change through culture, art and music. Blending soul, funk and rock, Midtown draws on the arrangements by such family bands as Tower of Power, Sly & the Family Stone and Chicago, while provided provocative vocals influenced by Bill Withers, Tina Turner and En Vogue. With an eclectic community of musicians and styles, Midtown Social never fails to bring a high energy, live music dance party wherever it goes.
With a cast of San Francisco’s most diverse musicians, LoCura mixes Latin styles like Rumba Flamenca & Cumbia with Afro-Cuban rhythms and Ska together in a brand they’ve dubbed ‘Califas Flamenkito’. Fronted by Spanish-American vocalist Kata Miletich & guitarist Bob Sanders, LoCura reflects the global mosaic of its home in San Francisco through their distinctive style and brings their vision to life, singing in both Spanish and English. www.locuramusica.com
Reviving the eras of 1930’s torch songs and Motown soul, Karina Denike’s original songs draw from sea shanties, Eastern European lullabies, doo wop drama and other unexpected sources. Karina moved to Oakland to front the legendary punk-ska band Dance Hall Crashers (MCA, Fatwreckords), with whom she released six albums and toured widely. Denike has shared stages with The Pretenders, Fiona Apple, Beck, NOFX, The Misfits, The Buzzcocks and The Ramones.
Denike continues to be a sought after vocalist and collaborator in SF’s music scene performing newly composed works, with 14 piece jazz big bands, and 60’s Soul groups. Her own self –titled group has been a featured in our The Pixies, Doolittle, and Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited, performances. Denike and her group have toured to Europe, Japan, L.A. and the East coast and hold a popular residency in San Francisco’s thriving mission district. Denike’s songs are enduring and bittersweet.
