5pm – Hurricane Gulch
Saturday, February 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hurricane Gulch is named after the Sausalito neighborhood where the band is based. The members (all veteran Marin County musicians) consist of Timothy O’ (acoustic guitar, vocals), Michael “Birdie” Hansen (bass, vocals), Aaron Chioino (electric guitar), Mike Shaw (drums) and Bruce Friedberg (accordion, keyboards). The band features Tim’s truly original songs with an alt country and rock lean as well as choice covers by The Band, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, The Stones, The Dead and others. Among the various Bay Area bands they’ve individually played with are Two Lane Blacktop, The Stokemen, The Highrollers, Starlene, Crazy Fingers and others. Birdie has also toured with internationally acclaimed artists Shelby Lynne and Kasey Chambers. In addition (for those who might remember that far back) both Birdie and Mike were integral parts of the early 1980’s Fairfax Pop-Punk scene at the original Sleeping Lady Cafe with the bands White Stag and Blake Quake and the Tremors respectively.
