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
Celebrating our quinceanera at the Monkey House August 4th with Special Ghosts [07.19.2017]
Hello, friends!

So ... Loretta is 15 years old! Some of you may remember our first formal gig at the Hotel Utah way back in the day. Now - we're all grown up, and ready to celebrate our quinceañera! Damas and chambelanes come on out! We are as happy as a dog with five tails be playing Friday, August 4th at Ira Marlowe's Monkey House (1638 University Ave in Berkeley – right next to the pole dancing school ;-) and even luckier to be sharing the bill with the delightful Special Ghosts! This acoustic ensemble of paranormal investigators (Andy Cowitt, Suki O’Kane, Isabel Samaras, and Michael Wertz) made their debut three years ago as a trio in rustic Port Costa, wowing the crowd at the certainly not haunted Burlington Hotel with their ukulele-and-vocal renditions of mostly unpopular 60's, 70’s, and 80’s classics composed by mostly dead people. This year, they welcomed Suki and her toy drums into the combo, enabling the Ghosts to reach new heights of ramshackle joy with their curated covers and catchy originals.This is an early show, doors at 7PM, show at 7:30 sharp. Come early for a seat!

The Monkey House is an amazing, intimate theater, and you are welcome to bring your own beverages of choice to sip as we serenade you, whether it's fine wine or beer, single malt or sauerkraut juice. Feel free to share! It's always a friendly crowd.

Reserve seats. You won't regret it!

See you there,



At the Monkey House with Special Ghosts [06.06.2017]
Hello friends -

Just a quick note to let you know that we'll be at the infamous Monkey House (voted Best of Oakland/East Bay 2017 Underground Venue!) Friday, August 4th with our good and ultra talented friends Special Ghosts! Mark your calendars now!



This Saturday 4/1 at the Plough, with Valeulons and DanceChant! [03.30.2017]

Just another reminder that Loretta will be playing this Saturday night April 1st at the Starry Plough (no fooling!) We'll be debuting some fine new songs, dusting off some old, and playing for the debut of big band DanceChant and Vapeulons. If you haven't heard these bands, you are in for a treat. Time to get your funk on! Show starts right at 9PM with Loretta, followed by raucously harmonious DanceChant and capping the evening with the shamanic medicine of Vapeulons! Don't miss it - and bring your dance pants!

See you there! We've been missing you.



Loretta with the Vapeulons and DanceChant Sat April 1st at the Starry Plough [02.28.2017]
Join us for an eclectic April Fools event at the Starry Plough! Saturday, April 1st - no fooling. We'll be playing for the debut of big band DanceChant and the Vapeulons. Show starts right at 9PM with Loretta, followed by raucously harmonious DanceChant and capping the evening with the funk medicine of Vapeulons! Don't miss it!

Vapeulons are hyperdimensional funk medicine shamans, the Vapeulons have manifested on the blue planet to spread the message: "the mothership is in my heart, and my heart is in the mothership"!

DanceChant is a cathartic adventure and exploration into dance, rhythm, and expression that cultivates love, joy, and community with simple meaningful chants and melodic phrases that invite listeners to join in and sing and dance along with the band with the intention of creating a space of healing and love.

Needed more than ever.

Stay tuned .... [10.12.2016]
