Thanks so much to those who came out to the Pacific Coast Brewing Co earlier this month. What a sweet gig!
Happy to announce another Sunday afternoon celebration - this time at our old haunt, the Starry Plough on Sunday, June 7th starting at 4PM. It'll be Loretta Lynch "light" for this one as Nathan and Dan will be busy haunting other places, but don't let that keep you away, as Ari, Heather and Val will sweetly serenade you with harmonies aplenty. We'll be going on first, pulling out some oldies and perhaps debuting a new tune or so.
As if this weren't enough, our pals Crying Time are celebrating the birth of their new LP (you read that right - LP! As in good old vinyl!) "Ten Golden Hits". And they are spectacular! Classic and original country at its best. Rumor has it that the gals of LL will join in the hollering ... er ... harmonizing for a couple of songs as well.
Did we mention that once again this is free? FREE? And kid friendly? And that there will be beer? What more do you want for a sweet song filled Sunday? Join us!
Just a quick note to let you all know we will be playing on the lovely latticed patio at the Pacific Coast Brewery Company (906 Washington St.) in Old Oakland on Sunday, May 3rd, from 4 – 6 PM. And it’s free. FREE!* Woo hoo! Come on down and sip some suds, nosh on nachos and enjoy the sweetly irreverent tunes we plan to offer up.
Fresh air! Kid friendly! Tap your toes or swing your partner – whichever the case, we’ll see you there!
* We’ll pass a jar for those feeling “tipsy”.

First - huge thanks to those who came out to our show at Richmond's DueStudio - what a fabulous venue! For those who have not been there, do check in out. You won't be disappointed.
Mark your calendars - Loretta has the pleasure of playing with two great local bands, the honky tonk revival group Crying Time and AmeriPop's (forget Gary Cooper and Loretta Young - it's the band!) Along Came Jones at Oakland's newly famed Awaken Cafe (14th and Broadway) on Saturday, March 14th. Yes, that's right. It is also International Pi Day (3.1415 ... just see what happens at 9:26!) and - you guessed it - an early show! Doors open at 6 PM, and we will go on at 7:00 for a 45 minutes set followed by our talented friends, but all will leave you plenty of time to get your Pi on in whatever way you wish. We sincerely hope your plans include whipped cream.
Awaken has fantastic organic food and a huge list of craft beers and fine wines (Seriously! Check it out! Green Flash on tap? Mmmmm) - all good reasons to come on down to Awaken!
Hope to see your lovely selves there,

We are delighted to announce that Loretta has been invited to play an early concert at DueStudio in Richmond on Saturday, January 31st. DueStudio (6370 Arlington Blvd, Richmond 94805 is the home of musicians and sound engineer Marci and Ricardo Valdivieso, whose band Duamuxa (http://www.duamuxa.com/) has been gracing venues with South American-inspired music in the Bay Area and around the country for years. They
DueStudio is just the style of intimate venue we love – with a fantastic small-scale sound system, good wine, beer and homemade organic food available for cash donation. Check out their FB page for information and pictures from past shows. https://www.facebook.com/Duamuxa As if this weren’t enough enticement, our own Nathan will be coaxing the rhythm out on the cajón for this one.
The doors open at 7:30, and the show begins at 8PM. You’ll have plenty of time to don your combat boots and hit the mosh pits afterwards, but at DueStudio you can eat, drink and relax as we serenade you with our sweet and sometimes slightly salty songs – with a little bitterness and and an edge never too far out of reach.
Hooray for new venues! We hope to see your smiling mugs there.
First – we’d like to thank the throngs of you who congratulated Loretta Lynch on being nominated for the esteemed position of US Attorney General. Please do come to our shows and consider them an opportunity to share your opinions about where legal talons will best be attached.* Should we have hopes for a White House gig?
Secondly and most importantly - celebrate with us this Saturday night, November 22nd at the Starry Plough in Berkeley! We have the pleasure of playing with both the fabulous Yard Sale (we haven’t played with them in many an election cycle!) and the talented Heartache Sisters, who will be joined by Heartache brother Maurice Tani. What an evening! Yard Sale will go on at 9PM sharp, followed by Loretta and Heartache Sisters. Rumor has it that the gals of Loretta will be hopping on stage for a Heartache Sisters song ... We are so lucky!
So don your dancing shoes and bring yourself and your appetite for song and sustenance (both liquid and solid – the beer is good and the food tasty at the Plough!) this Saturday. See you there!
