FREE DAY OF JAMS IN SF: 6/2

Free Day of Music at Jerry Garcia Amphitheater on 06.02.07
West Coast Phil Zoner Jam '07

The West Coast Zoner Family (members of the online fansite Philzone.org) would like to invite the Bay Area music community to come out and enjoy a full day of free music at one of San Francisco's most sacred outdoor venues, the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater (McLaren Park), SF. Saturday June 2, 2007 from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. There will be six bands performing that hail from all over California, as far south as San Diego and north to Sacramento.

This event is a gathering to share great music and strong friendships which we (Zoners) have luckily experienced through our time spent on the Philzone.org. "The original musical heyday in this town was just a bunch of local freaks making it happen. This is our time, lord knows we're all freaky enough..." comments Mike Berry lead guitarist of Left Coasting. This event was sponsored by donations from various Zoner folks from all over the country.

Schedule of Events for 06.02.07:

Left Coasting (4:40-5:35 p.m. + Encore Jam): Inspired by the principle of Zen Parking {you need not actively seek the space, it will present itself to you}, a vision was born of starting a band that would use improvisation to create itself rather than be created. This band's diverse style draws on various musical traditions, including funk, blues, rock and progressive rock, folk music, world music and jazz, engaging in free improvisation, in effect spontaneously composing music that has never been heard before by the audiences or the players themselves.

Five Eyed Hand (3:35-4:30 p.m.): An eclectic collaboration of veteran musicians who have joined forces to create a unique musical experience. This musical association generates psychedelic rock with a jazz roots approach. Fiddler Mikey Henderson, a virtuoso on electric violin and mandolin, bass master Jeb Taylor, Chris Zanardi and his Gibson ES-135 guitar and Derek Bodkin on drums/guitar & whistling bring their own compositions, technical skills and unique improvisational energy to this lineup to help propel the music and the listener into the stratosphere.

Lost Ticket (2:30-3:25 p.m.): Lost Ticket is a trio rooted in classic hard rock. Their original songs are frighteningly fast and furious. Lost Ticket is made up of Bay Area rock veterans Douglas Garay (Pebble Theory, Lemurian) on bass and vocals, Paul Joseph (Pockit) on guitar and lead vocals and Thomas Perry (Flametal, Pockit, Lemurian) on drums, percussion and vocals. Lost Ticket's debut record, Warning will be released in June 2007.

Reefer Canyon (1:40-2:20 p.m.): Reefer Canyon is a San Diego garage alt-ountry band out to have a good time. "Not lookin' to be anything more than we are. If ya like the music, please tell some other people about us" says lead guitar and singer Geoff Waddell (aka Timmy Hoover). With influences ranging from the Grateful Dead, The Beatles to Ry Cooder and David Lindley, Reefer Canyon delivers a soulful Western sound with their soaring guitar riffs and thumping rhythm section.

West County Outlaws (12:50-1:30 p.m.): "We love to share our music!" Todd Gorman states proudly. Gorman is the propellant behind the inception of the West County Outlaws philosophy. He has only recently focused his musical perpetuities on playing music but has had an eye and ear pressed to the more tasteful sounds for years. In addition the band includes bassist/songwriter Van Solkov, Joe Stoner on lead guitar and Lisa DiMaio on vocals.

William Mylar Band (11:45 a.m.-12:40 p.m.): William Mylar invented Folk Wave music back in the 70's to describe his unique sound and solo performances. Mylar resurrected his solo performances in 1999 and recorded Real Mylar, a CD that was named one of the top 25 American Folk albums in 2002. He also formed a jam band, WMB, in 2002 and continues to perform both as a solo artist and with WMB. His recent release, Listen, was accepted by the Recording Academy for entry into the 2004 Grammy Awards competition in 14 categories, including "Right On Time" (Best Song) which is currently on the play lists of over 500 radio stations in America.

MC for the Evening: Sam Flot (spoken word)

I'm flying in from Mongolia for the show. Then after the first band plays I'm going to get back on the plane and return to Mongolia.

I used to say "what 01Roggae said" all the time, then I moved out here. Best decision I could have made. I met Sam Flot at Hippy Hill, well um, doing what people do there. He's a maniac, and I will be at this show.
