Dakila – Cinco de Mayo – Filipino/Latin Stars
May 3 @ 9:00 pm – 11:45 pm

DakilaThe legendary 1970′s Latin rock band that made its glorious return to the stage at the 2013 Voices of Latin Rock were the hit of the show. Dakila lives on and you can’t miss this Latin Groove band that took the city and their fans to a new high.
When we think about Latin Rock, we usually imagine Hispanic or South American artists. However, San Francisco is a diverse city that it is not surprising to find a group that performs music other than their own. For the group Dakila, mixing the latin beat with Filipino flair worked well for them.

American Young
May 17 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

american youngAmerican Young. Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson define American Young this way. They are seasoned veterans on how music can inherently affect emotion and even culture. The fresh new duo already claim songwriting credits for hit makers Kenny Chesney, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts, Blake Shelton and more. “American Young represents a sound with no boundaries. We are squarely focused on delivering our own brand of music and hope that folks will find our songs everything from haunting to dramatic and intense”, says Jon.

Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson may seem familiar to you. They’ve both been in Nashville and have explored their options in country music before. Jon as a solo act, then a successful producer and songwriter (“Me and My Gang,” “A Woman Like You”) and Kristy as a founding member and sizzling fiddle player of the duo Bomshel.
