Those of you who remember the Jim Kweskin Jug Band’s early days will fondly recall their upbeat sound, part of the general spirit and clamor of the 1960s. Kweskin, now 79, will be at the Occidental Center for the Arts on Sept. 22, accompanied by Meredith Axelrod, a young woman who has played with Dan Hicks, Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, and David Grisman. Both musicians will be on vocals, guitar, and banjo, with possibly a jug tune or two from her.

On Aug. 22, as part of the KRSH free backyard series at their Santa Rosa station, Wayne “The Train” Hancockbrings his band to play on their stage adjacent to a caboose, though an engine might be more appropriate. During our July phone interview, Hancock says he derived his nickname from his style of “goin’ and goin’ and goin’, strummin’ my guitar like an old steam train.”

Roy Zimmerman, a San Francisco native, speaks by phone from Madison, Wisconsin, where he’s performing. Though they live in Lake County, he and his wife, Melanie Harby, spend two-thirds of the year traveling to shows together, which he has called “entertaining the troops.” Talking in terms of a current “national nightmare,” he says he meets many people around the country who are dealing with it. “We always stress the laughter, but encourage people to come away from the show empowered, not just entertained.” “It’s a whole new political landscape, unfortunately it’s a Jackson Pollack.”

Pete Sears refers to himself as “an aging rock ‘n’ roll musician” in our recent interview, describing the genre as “an all-encompassing form of music, influenced by everything.” He hit the big stage in 1974, as bassist and keyboardist for Jefferson Starship. It was a utopian era of unbridled optimism, when hopes, dreams, and hallucinations merged with reality.
He’s currently a member of the local bands, Moonalice, the David Nelson Band, and the Green Leaf Rustlers with former Black Crowes vocalist, Chris Robinson.
