Pets are not allowed except for service animals.

We are so sorry to say that due to strict Health Department regulations and liability issues we are unable to accommodate your dogs (even on-leash) at the event this year. We are all animal- lovers and this is really disappointing for us. If it was possible for us to have them, we would! However, you can still get your “dog-fix” and all the dog-licks you can handle by visiting the many adoptable dogs from rescue organizations that will be available at the festival. Service animals are allowed.

BOMBINO performing live at The New Parish in Oakland with special guests RENEE ASTERIA & Golden Arrow

BOMBINO – http://www.bombinomusic.com/
Tuareg guitarist and singer Omara “Bombino” Moctar made his Nonesuch Records debut with the release of Nomad on April 2, 2013. The album was recorded with 2013 Grammy Award-winning Producer of the Year Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys at his Nashville studio, Easy Eye Sound. Nomad debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music album chart and iTunes World chart and has earned rave reviews from top media outlets around the world including BBC World Service, which calls it “utterly, utterly fantastic” and Rolling Stone, which calls Nomad “a perfect match of sound and soul [that] introduces a new guitar hero.” His dazzling live performance and virtuosity on the guitar have led notable music critics to compare him to Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Neil Young, and Jerry Garcia.

RENEE ASTERIA – http://razteria.com/
Razteria can be described as a Fusion of early No Doubt and Sade. Her music unites Reggae, passionate Latin grooves and Rock, powerful messages and musical genius. Described as “musically adventurous” and “a one of a kind breaking of all rules” (C. Foster, Reggae Update, getthebeat.com), Razteria’s songwriting reflects her passion and strong commitment to justice.

Join us this Saturday and Sunday for Relay For Life celebration!

There will be music and other live activities for 24 hours straight! We will perform an intimate acoustic set (Renee AsteriaDave Eagle & Luke Dennis) around 4 pm on Sat! At 1 pm I’ll be singing harmonies for Nissa Nicole /Josh Petersen / David Brehmer – classic rock tunes not to be missed!

More about Relay for life:

At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Relay events are up to 24 hours in length and, because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
