Don’t miss an afternoon of pure delicious blues on the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater stage in San Francisco’s John McLaren Park. Come and hear these knockout bands for free on the very stage that helped launch the SF Blues Festival!
The Stan Erhart Band starts the show at 2pm. This eclectic group of musicians will dish up some of their sizzling signature grooves, covering blues/r&b, rock, soul, and jazz. Stan and his crew (Damon Hope on drums, Keith Crossan on sax, Pat T on bass) will be there from 1 pm on, so come out and hang with them!
“Soulful vocals … scalding guitar.”

Then at 3pm, Alvon Johnson and his Allstars will keep the groove flowing with another power hour of soulful blues. Alvon has performed with many well-known artists, including The Drifters, The Shirelles, Bobby Day, and Otis Day and the Knights.
