JimBo Trout & the Fishpeople are a high energy, good-time band from San Francisco that has been together since 1992. They perform a musical gumbo made up of bluegrass, ragtime, blues, Western swing, Appalachian, rock+roll, New Orleans, honky-tonk, and more. But they are not a band that would let tradition stand in the way of a good time! JimBo Trout & the Fishpeople are known for their entertaining, energetic, and danceable live shows. The SFBOT show features JimBo Trout (guitar and banjo), Steve Neil (bass), Annie Staninec (fiddle) and David Phillips (steel guitar).

Squirrelly Stringband   "You just don't hear music like this west of the Mason-Dixon line." The Squirrely Stringband plays old-time southern breakdowns and backwoods mountain music. You'll hear them belt it out at farmer's markets, square dances, parties, and music festivals. They are the first-place winners of the 2003 and 2006 Berkeley Farmer's Market Stringband Conventions. Members of the band are David Murray on fiddle, Debbie Berne on banjo, Allegra Yellin on guitar, and Rachel Kraai on washtub & bass.
