Has Alameda Become a Magnet for Musicians?

So much music, so little time.

I was first tipped off to Alameda becoming a haven for musicians earlier this year when covering the .

The majority of bands performing were from right here on the Island.

Now I see that the popular on Park Street has a promising looking lineup of local musical acts performing on Tuesday nights from 7 to 9 p.m.

Julie's musicians for rest of the month include Aerin Monroe (12/6), The Flyright Sisters (12/13), The Spin Cats (12/20), and The Hotsy Totsy Hillbilly Jazzbos (12/27).

Other than Julie's where do you like to go listen to live music in Alameda? ? ? ? Other places?

Bob Enos' Big Band at Rooster's. I used to go watch them when we first moved here, and I think they still play every Wednesday night. Well worth it to go check them out.

I hear live music all the time at Thin Man Music on 1506 Webster - granted, it's a music store but often you can hear some really great guitar players there. Perhaps I'm biased, since my husband owns the store - but I hope you'll all check it out! A great place to Christmas shop too!! Our teachers are Mark McGee, Darryl Burke and Steve Laciak - all really great players!

Darryl Berk, from Thin Man and son Jason Berk, can be heard at various locations in Alameda - Thin Man, Roosters, High Street Station! Look for Jason to be back in town for winter break and playing at a venue near you!
