$10-20 suggested donation.

Just the thing to cap off Mothers Day… the Seducers take Bird & Beckett down an entirely different highway, offering up classic, outlaw and honky tonk country music. It’s an all-star band led by pedal steel master Joe Goldmark, with Mitch Polzak, the heart-throb mayor of Port Costa on lead guitar and vocals, the wry and brilliant Hank Maninger on bass guitar and vocals, and Zen poet Kenny Owen on drums.
