It's a little bit front porch, a little bit backwoods, it's the art motel on a long stretch of highway... it's Loretta Lynch.

Loretta Lynch: news
The gals of Loretta this Sunday, Sept 9th at the Freight! [09.06.2018]
Hi, fans of Loretta!

You are cordially invited to join Val, Ari and Heather for an evening of George Jones songs at the Freight and Salvage on Sunday, September 9th! It's a fantastic line-up we're happy to be a part of. Val will sing some duets with Maurice Tani and Danny Allen, and one on her own, and then join forces with Ari and Heather for some tunes in sweet three part harmony. Lifting the heavy load will be the East Bay's own honkytonk revisionists Crying Time as the backing band. But wait! As if that wasn't enough, Joe Rut will be crooning some George as well. Yeah!

Loretta will be back in full band format for a gig at the San Lorenzo library Sunday afternoon, September 30th. More on that soon!



September gigs! [08.31.2018]
Saturday, September 1st

Boskoís Back Porch Hootenanny - contact us for the address!


Hosted by Cindy Emch, Charlotte Gutierrez, and Bosko, the Dick van Dyke of dogs. (In the Back Yard ó Just walk down the somewhat steep driveway and come in the back gate. Let us know if there are any logistical issues that require going though the house and we will make sure these are accomodated!)

On the bill for this party are:

Secret Emchy Society

Foot stomping, heart warming queer country tunes.

Yours Truly, Michele

Sweet, sexy, swoony, jazzy siren songs that will light up your night.

Laura Benitez

Country soul, charm, and swagger right from the heart.

And then Loretta in full band format!

about Boskoís Hoot:

We will have a donation based bar, ask that you give a $10 donation for the bands, and we will have the grill on if you want to cook up a hot dog, not dog, or other grill friendly things (BYO on the foods though) Canít wait to see you! This happens rain or shine, all of the music is acoustic based, and if it gets cold we will bring out blankets / make a fire.

Then - mark your calendars for an evening of George Jones at the incomparable Freight and Salvage on Sunday, September 9th! It's a fantastic line-up we're happy to be a part of. More on that later!
