Midtown Social
Midtown Social
In a city that thrives on its diversity, sun-soaked California retro-soul band Midtown Social unites a fractured San Francisco undergoing swells of monumental change with an uplifting and outright funky new single, Fantastic Colors, due out nationwide on August 2nd. Midtown Social is of the fabric of San Francisco with its members representing the wide swathes of what makes the city so extraordinary. For its latest studio recording co-produced by Jeff Kolhede (Money Mark, Alphabet Rockers), Midtown Social writes a love letter to its hometown amid a perilous time when reverence is essential for collective healing. Drastic income disparity, sky-rocketing rents, profound homelessness, acute drug abuse, among other critical issues, are rendering the city unrecognizable. On Fantastic Colors, Midtown Social offers a compassionate reflection of its true love for San Francisco.

The breakout title track “Fantastic Colors” – has friendship at the heart of an exploration down San Francisco’s city streets. A joyous snapshot of friends simply walking together discovering the intricacies of various neighborhoods, “Fantastic Colors” is a lesson in the overwhelming submission to the moment. Floating around the city with a close friend – which are increasingly more difficult to find – welcomes a state of euphoria. “Fantastic Colors” is an ode to the fundamental role friends play while struggling to survive while facing the ever-increasing pressures of living in San Francisco.

Whether sharing the stage with Janelle Monáe or Kehlani, Midtown Social presents their electrifying live show at venerable venues and music festivals across the country. Recent shows have included standout performances at the iconic Stern Grove Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, August Hall, Bimbo’s 365 Club, The Independent, Paramount Theatre (Oakland), and many others.
The Jack Mosbacher Band
"Jack Mosbacher is a star on the rise.” -San Francisco Chronicle

Jack Mosbacher, a Bay Area native and independent recording artist based in San Francisco, blends the full-throated soul of Sam Cooke and Solomon Burke with the big hook sensibility of modern roots rockers like Elvis Costello and Train. Noted for his high-energy live shows and upbeat tunes that celebrate the lighter side of life and love, Jack has been called “a joyful, exuberant take on the best of pop” by Skope Magazine and “a great example of how supreme musicianship and composition come together to create an experience that all music fans can - and will - enjoy” by IAE Magazine.
E Da Boss
DJ E Da Boss has been in the game since 1987, when he began collecting records and DJing as a youngster in his native New Jersey. Born in Newark but now based in San Francisco, Eric ‘E’ Cooke aka Eric Boss or E Da Boss is the definition of a multifaceted artist: what began with DJing and a love of hip-hop then developed into producing and eventually, singing and songwriting.

Best known as one half of soul duo Myron & E, Eric has released music on labels such as Stones Throw, Ubiquity, Timmion, Mocambo, Wah Wah 45s, and is currently also part of boogie-funk group The Pendletons as well as collaborating and putting out solo material under his own name E.

As a DJ he is one of the minds behind Bay Area's legendary 45 Sessions, has opened for or shared the stage with names such as Saun & Starr (Daptone Records), Shortcut, Just Blaze, Natasha Diggs, 45 King, Diamond D, Rich Medina, Peanut Butter Wolf, J Rocc, Rettmattic, Craig Charles, and has DJed in nights and venues such as Upstairs @ Ronnie Scott's (London), Mojo Club (Hamburg), Sweater Funk (San Francisco), Funkmosphere (L.A.), Soul Summit (Chicago) Funky Sole (L.A.) Wedding Soul (Berlin) and Mobile Mondays (NYC), to name a few.

Preserving the long lost art form of Soul music and spreading the gospel of vinyl records wherever he goes, DJ E Da Boss is a veteran and a connoisseur. Funk, soul, boogie, disco, breaks: they're all in the mix, but to really understand you have to see him at work...
