Sweet Plot's infectious sound energizes and connects with an audience in a way that makes the show bigger than just the band itself. Cultivated by a dedicated family of musicians and artists, the group celebrates its storied roots with refreshing authenticity. The band's genesis began after a late night jam session turned into an epiphany. Behind the group's upbeat music and thoughtful lyrics is a band working together with the single goal of creating a connection in our world through music.
Evan & the Live Oaks
Evan & the Live Oaks are a contemporary Americana-Soul group from Oakland, California. An energetic band of friends that pays homage to late 60's, early 70's rock and roll and folk. The singer/songwriter and lately drummer, Evan Lanam, has been singing since the 1st grade in school choirs, until finally getting a drumset in the 8th grade. Since then he has been in numerous local bands, primarily as a drummer and has not stopped contributing to the local San Francisco Bay Area music scenes since. Comprised of some of the only full-time musicians still around in the Bay Area, Evan & the Live Oaks have been touring extensively all over the United States, and have done stints at SXSW in Austin, TX, Nashville, Portland, San Diego just to name a few. Keep an eye out for their newly released "Hyde Street E.P. that is currently live on Spotify and beyond.
"Evan Lanam's voice is what Bob Dylan wished his voice sounded like..."
-Maria Muldaur (Multi-Grammy Nominee, most know for her million selling hit 'Midnight at the Oasis')
"These guys are eclectic, not to mention succeed in blending genres. A feat that few artists really ever succeed at"

started by Daniel Erik & Adrienne Wickham-Gobert, began on a small stage in a Redwood forest up in Mendocino county. Shortlly after kindling musical spirits, Daniel and Adrienne grew the group into an 8-piece ensemble. Their sound is reminiscent of new bands
