The Berkeley Blues Coalition makes their return to the Freight! Featuring Celeste Kopel on lead vocals, Nathan Phillips on lead guitar, Barry Weinstein on rhythm guitar, JV Fowler on drums, and the RaveUps’ Kit Newkirk on bass, the band pays tribute to bluesy classic rock – think Cream, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix – and contemporary blues artists.


Imagine a Tarantino sound track with a dose of Brian Setzer and a dash of Freddie King. This is the sound of Buzzy Frets! Bay Area stalwarts Pete Madsen, Nelson Santos and Anthony Delaney play a cosmic array of classic surf, as well as many original surf, rockabilly and blues-inspired instrumentals. Their sound is at once classic and modern, inhabiting the vintage tones of drenched reverb guitar with a modern funky edge.
