APE is a six-piece band from San Francisco and the only band in the world that features a live Tiki Carver. APE is anything but conventional. While rooted in exotica, rock, jazz, and Hawaiian music, APE has touched on various genres throughout their career. Their instrumentation is a nontraditional mix of steel guitar, ukuleles, odd-tuned baritone and electric guitars, bass, drums and a variety of percussion instruments.
APE recently played the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, has headlined the Hard Rock Cafe and the House of Blues in Las Vegas, the Tiki Oasis festivals in Palm Springs and San Diego, the Hukilau in Florida, shared the bill with Sammy Hagar, Blondie, Dragon Smoke, Link Wray, Preston Epps, Billy Mure and toured the Western United States. This year they are recording their follow up album to ‘Supersonic.’
DARK N STORMY
Serving up stone cold sonic libations with vintage vibes, Dark N Stormy is a five-piece classic rock jam band that leans heavily into Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Little Feat and other timeless jam-based and funky classics. DNS has been playing clubs and private events around the San Francisco Bay Area for the past five years.
YellowWood Junction was formed in San Francisco in the Summer of 1993. This six-piece band toured extensively in the mid-90s, building a solid audience in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and California. They were voted one of the Bay Area’s most promising un-signed bands by KFOG in 1994. In 2022 YWJ reunited for a special reunion show and has more upcoming shows planned.
