The music begins with a laid-back Hawaiian beat, down tempo guitar chords bouncing along with the audience. Just as a smooth voice begins to croon, a horn section screeches into focus and 10 musicians begin to rock.

"Danville Be Jammin'"--I was downtown yesterday and the same bands that played last year were playing and playing the same songs (mostly retro-classic rock). This is a departure from the SAME thing every year; however, a 10 piece band must be costing big time or they are working for nearly nothing. I have beed a musician for 0ver 40 years and 3 of members of one of my bands LIVE here. We have played the concert in Alamo, Walnut Creek, and most of the main night clubs in the SF Bay Area. As with my group, I am sure there are plenty of talented musicians and bands in the area who would like to know WHEN is the process going to be competitive, open, transparent and fair. We all have press packets and websites (; Rick how can we be considered?
