Andre Thierry Accordion Soul Music

GRAMMY nominated Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of musicians and music lovers since he was a young boy. Andre’s French Creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana although he was born and reared in northern California.
Andre is a virtuoso on all the accordion types, single row, double row, triple row and piano key. He effortlessly moves across types to deliver an energetic two-step, hard-driving blues or a blend that is his own alternative Creole sound.

Neon Velvet

Neon Velvet is like a first date: Exhilarating! Imagine all the sass and the glamour of the 80's New Romantics (Duran Duran, Bowie) in a lurid embrace with the potent synth rock of today (The Killers, Franz Ferdinand). The result is a devilishly fun night of sexy dance music. Neon Velvet is the elite Modern Dance Party. 

Neon Velvet were voted Best Band by last year's Art & Wine Festival attendees.

Walnut Creek Civic Arts Jazz Band

For a swinging concert with lots of variety, join the Walnut Creek Community Arts Jazz Band for a fun early summer show. Under the direction of Max Pricco, the Jazz Band sizzles away with a montage of tunes and swing standards. The Walnut Creek Community Arts Jazz Band is part of the City of Walnut Creek's Community Arts education program. 

12:30 – 2:00


Lumberyard is a "good-time, foot stompin' classic rock, funk, soul, techno dance band." The name came courtesy of the late, great Jeff Slingerland. The word Lumberyard seemed to be earthy yet not to dirty, obtuse yet still reaky with clarity, appealing un-repulsive and lastly; visually stimulating. Men think of building workshops and women think of knotty pine. Somehow it works...

2:30 –4:00 


Boombox is Northern California's hottest dance party band playing Rock, Soul and Funk hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s and today! This band has a stellar lineup of serious Bay Area music legends — Teal Collins (The Mother Truckers), April Grisman (Y&T), Miles Schon (Miles Schon BAND), Denise Martin (Mr. Big), Angeline Saris (Zepparella) and Jonathan Korty (Vinyl). Wait till Boombox unleashes the super-killer jams; you will be up on your feet singing and dancing!

4:30 – 6:00


Jambalaya is a collective of cultural dancers, percussionists, and musicians that feature an energetic stage performance of dance music rooted in African, Brazilian, Caribbean, Mediterranean and Latin rhythms.
