Café Colonial truly is, as Owner/Operator Matthew Marrujo once told me, “Oak parks best kept secret”! It is one of the most accommodating all ages music venues in town, and they have worked hard to create a welcoming location for bands (local and touring) to come and play music.

They have always been supportive of the local music community, take for instance the recent Sacramento Ladyfest. They were a huge contributor to the success of this inaugural Fest. This event would NEVER have been possible if it were not for Café Colonial opening its doors to the event coordinators. They were so open to allowing this group of community members coming in and doing what they needed to do without ever placing limitations on the event. It is truly a unique venue where events like this can and have been taking place.

Seriously, where else can members of the local community come in and take over a venue for two days, with 13 plus bands? How amazing, and unique is that here in Sacramento?

There are so many examples to point out as to why we should show our support for this all ages music venue. It has given, and continues to give, local music promoters the opportunity to host their own shows, and it is a rad place for local bands to bring out of town bands in so that they can eventually trade shows. Not to mention they have also opened their doors to countless bands looking for last minute gigs, as well as to touring bands just trying to find a place to play!

If you have ever played, booked a show, or went to a gig here, NOW is your chance to show the love back for this venue!

On July 31st, 2015, the goal is to raise money to help build up their sound system, and put in a proper stage. We all know how expensive this can be, and the café needs your support to make this a reality! To do so, they have put together an epic line-up including bands such as ‘The Strange Party’, ‘The Community’, and ‘The O’Mulligans’. Of course its all ages, and only $8!

Remember, the sound improvements at this venue will not only benefit the café, but it also benefits the bands, and those who love going to see shows here! It’s a win-win for everyone!

Show your love, support this local community music venue and go to the show!!!!

Radio Special #3 – 07/09/15

It’s that time again! This Thursday (7/9/2015) there will be a Sac.Indie.Music radio special taking place from 8pm – 10pm!

The kind folks over at KDVS 90.3fm have allowed me to take over TWO whole hours of radio. I will be featuring all local Sacramento bands (plus a couple from Oakland, and Davis).

If you are unfamiliar with all the amazing music the local Sacramento scene has to offer, now is a great time to tune into the radio and find out! The scene here is alive and well, there are many great and talented bands making music, and hopefully this will compel you to GET OUT TO SOME SHOW in the future.
