THE 20TH ANNUAL
Glen Park Festival
A NEIGHBORHOOD TRADITION TO SUPPORT THE GLEN PARK COMMUNITY
on DIAMOND STREET
The Glen Park neighborhood is full of families, and the 2018 Festival will be a fantastic event for everyone, especially the kids! For the 2018 festival we expect to run a full slate of acts at the main stage, plus jumpy houses, performers, and other events specifically for kids in the children's area at the end of Wilder Street and elsewhere.
Fog Swamp is a San Francisco-based assemblage of first-call musicians that performs original swamp rock. Steeped in genres ranging from rock, New Orleans funk and blues to bluegrass and jazz, Fog Swamp’s members have toured the world, having shared stages with The Meters, Wilco, Dave Brubeck, Phil Lesh, Ben Harper, The Radiators and others. Fog Swamp features Alex Wise (guitar, vocals), Ted Silverman (bass), Bill Hanelius (guitar), Schad Dalton (drums), Jeff Ballard (harmonica) and Matt Twain (keys).
Jinx Jones, once called "Man of a Thousand Riffs" is a versatile guitarist who's lent his strings to jazz, pop and rockabilly tunes — as well as En Vogue's megahit "Free Your Mind." But for Jones, with releases such as "Rumble & Twang" and "Rip and Run," rockabilly's where it's at. With his trio the KingTones, featuring Ken Owen on drums and Whisky Pills on bass, Jones will treat the Glen Park crowd to some truly tasty licks that will make you want to break out your creepers and grease your hair. Jones is one axeman who takes his "License to Twang" seriously.
For over a decade, Bayonics has been rocking the San Francisco Bay Area with a unique blend of latin, reggae, funk music. This stalwart band has been a Bay Area headliner for many years and they never fail to deliver fresh new music and move the crowd with consistent passion, energy & emotion.
Bayonics is led by the powerful vocal stylings of Jairo Vargas, aka Rojai (Row-Juh), who merges elements to produce a raw soulful sound as distinct and unique as the San Francisco streets that bred him. Channeling a sixth sense that only he holds, he puts forth melodies, lyrics and compositions that carry inherent respect for the artist that inspired his craft.
Playing to packed houses worldwide, Bayonics has performed everywhere from San Francisco to Miami, to Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Brazil. Bayonics have shared the stage with Wu-Tang Clan, N.E.R.D., Mos Def, Jordan T, Erykah Badu, J-Boog, Common, George Clinton, Katchafire, Los Rakas, Con Brio, Gondwana, RaShiloh, Yami Bolo, Warrior King, Alborosie, Ozomatli, Common Kings and the Black Keys.
