“Mickelson sings with aching urgency, cloaked in a dark fog that keeps his melodies balancing on the edge of unresolved, underscoring his take that life is never an all-easy road. His work is smart, moving and never overdone.” -MusicNewsNashville

“Flickering, a buoyant composition showcasing that Mickelson’s offers undeniable musical charm and instrumental dexterity.” -Glide Magazine

“It's American folk-Rock with a post punk edge, rustic but scarred.” -Alternative Press Magazine

Ken, in addition to being talented magician, is a San Francisco-based Singer/Songwriter currently performing solo and with his band, “Berkeley Bronx.” Prior to that, he was lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the band “Last Bastion.” For the past six years, his earnings from music have all been donated to a variety of homeless charities; specifically, Compass Family Services and Larkin St. Youth Services. More recently, Ken and a number of fellow musicians have been supporting a program called, “Blanket The Homeless” with the mission of packaging up emergency blankets, hand warmers, socks, first aid kits, and other items to distribute them to people living on the streets of San Francisco. Ken has also been involved in the homeless outreach program “Be Robin,” started by Comedian, Margaret Cho, which celebrates the memory and philanthropy of Robin Williams.

Andrea Hensler

Andrea Hensler majored in math and got distracted. Since then she's been the lead guitarist for Mobius Donut, keyboardist for the Jean Genies Bowie tribute, and backing artist for various acts from Jello Biafara to Country Joe MacDonald."

She also performs with "The Third Thursday Band," and is a bass player and vocalist with, "Berkeley Bronx."

Blanket The Homeless

"Blanket The Homeless" is a fundraising concert. All proceeds going to the musicians will be used to purchase emergency blankets, socks, hand warmers, and first aid kits. These will be packaged up and distributed to our friends and neighbors living on the streets of San Francisco. Guests will also be encouraged to take some of these packages with them to hand out on the way home from the show.

This is also a #BeRobin event, commemorating the life and philanthropy of Robin Williams.
