What does Santa Rosa sound like? Well, if you listen to the quite extraordinary music being created and performed here, you might say it sounds like people having fun. Doing something they love. Making something that makes them, and hopefully their friends, happy. Have a listen and see if you agree.
Santa Rosa’s own Oddjob Ensemble is Kalei Yamanoha’s strange and wonderful brainchild, a consortium of multi-instrumentalists, with powerful ancient melodies and sounds that twist the ear into a delicious musical pretzel.
On the third Sunday of every month John Courage stands before the room filled with friends and neighbors at The Toad In The Hole happily sipping beers and eating Shepherd’s Pie to play his guitar and sing some songs.
