This event is all ages

San Francisco’s longest running storytelling series joins dance music experts Marc & The Casuals to bust a move and a groove with an evening of stories, comedy, soul music, and surprises. The night starts promptly at 8:30 with stories by some of our favorite riotous raconteurs & righteous rockers, followed by the kind of boogaloo frenzy that Marc & The Casuals are famous for. After a set of hilarious true tales, hosts Beth and Arline will hit the dance floor with the audience for a classic San Francisco night that might leave you aching the next day. (but in the best possible way). Expect a musical ensemble of 20+ musicians and vocalists including Etienne deRocher, Fredo Ortiz, Persephone’s Bees, Brigid Dawson, and Karina Denike, and some very special surprise guests. Don’t miss this one!

Marc & the Casuals
Marc & the Casuals
San Francisco, meet Muscle Shoals. The vintage R&B and funk-tinged, blue-eyed soul sound of Marc & the Casuals draws deep cuts from the American songbook--as bandleader Marc Capelle puts it, “We try to have the sophistication that a good DJ would have in picking the songs.” With a core rhythm section of Capelle, Bart Davenport, Pete Straus, Todd Roper, and Tom Ayres, this new-style big band builds on the partnership of Capelle and Davenport, both raised on the classic regional soul sound and genre-busting party bands of Northern California. Expect a live-mixtape feel and a crowded dance floor. "The best damn band in San Francisco" -- SF Examiner.
