KraftBrew Review by Content Magazine

It is hard to argue that San Jose has indeed been considered a late bloomer in the craft beer scene, but the KraftBeer Fest proved that San Jose has more than caught up. If you didn’t go this year, don’t miss out next year.

Thank you Content Magazine for a great article but most importantly, thank you to all of the partners, staff, supporters, and volunteers who went above and beyond to produce a successful event.

Until next year! Are you ready??

August 20 – Monkey

Naglee Park Garage presents:

Monkey

Ska

full

“San Francisco-based ska/swing purveyors Monkey formed in 1996 around a mutual love of (obviously) ska, but also through their strong affections for soul, jazz, Latin, and rock.

Their self-produced, self-issued debut album, Changito!, moved over 6,000 units in 1997 and propelled this ambitious band into a very long and quite successful career. With five EPs, over 20 compilation appearances, film and video game soundtrack contributions, and four full-length albums under their collective belt, Monkey certainly have not been idle. Coupled with an average of 200 live appearances a year, one gets the idea that Monkey might just be one of the hardest-working ska groups of the 2000s. As of 2009, the band has continued to tour internationally, at its accustomed frantic pace, and released a compilation CD, Monkeyska, in Japan on Disc Union Ltd. ~ J. Scott McClintock”

Naglee Park Garage presents:

We Are Hunters

Folk-Indie-Alt-Country

10317666_722709071085859_3701060828285264821_o

We.are.hunters of the next song, the new sound, ourselves, and our satellites.

hunters. started in a garage across the bay from San Francisco.
soundproofed with foam egg pads.
powered by a mixer from ’79.
debuted to a captive audience of spiders and giant millipedes.

We’ve just finished our second album, Treeline.

It’s about love and breakups, liars and cheats, mental illness, foreclosures, and even a best-selling murder mystery.

In the past, some small music websites have said things like this about us:

“Their brand of folk music is second to none!” — It’s All Indie

“If you’re a fan of alt-country you’re going to fall in love with this. It’s likely that it will be your best friend on your next big road trip.” — We All Want Someone to Shout For

But we think you should come listen to us and see what you think.”

July 16 – Workhouse Poets

Naglee Park Garage presents:

Workhouse Poets

Acoustic Folk-Hillbilly-Roots

Naglee Park Garage 2011

“The Workhouse Poets have been together in one form or another for the last 40 years, when James Manganello, and Larry Elrod began playing acoustic folk, hillbilly, and roots music together. Shortly thereafter, James’s brother-in-law, Mike Doubrava, joined them on bass. They began playing local clubs in their hometowns of Los Gatos, and Hollister, Ca, and gradually a distinct sound emerged, with influences such as Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Gram Parsons. Throughout their musical growth, one common theme ran through their music, the sights and sounds of American roots music, and a search for songs that were moving musically, and literate in scope. Eventually, James and Larry began to create their own songs, with their own unique perspective, reflecting the people, the sights and the sounds, that populate the heartland of the United States. As the band began to create their own songs, they were joined by Gary Linnert on drums, and Jimmy “Flaco” Foley, on piano, organ, accordion, and guitar. They have continued to grow musically, with Manganello and Elrod singing lead vocals on their respective self penned tunes, with Doubrava and Foley adding soulful vocal harmonies.”

June 4 – Bug Horn Rex

Naglee Park Garage presents:

Bug Horn Rex

Brass Band Funk

bughornrexweb

Bug Horn Rex has evolved from its Dixieland combo roots into an adaptable horn-driven ensemble that revels in a jambalaya of New Orleans sounds.

Each set is a stroll down Bourbon Street–the street beat of a Mardi Gras parade yields to hip brass band funk, then dissolves into a smoky Ellington backroom ballad.

Loud, eclectic and fun, Bug Horn Rex lets the good times roll with every performance.”
