The three-piece band, fronted by Polzak on Guitar and vocals, play a wide representation of American Roots Music from Rockabilly to Honky Tonk. Polzak’s showmanship, as well as his diverse background in multiple genres (including Cajun, Bluegrass and Surf), contributes to what sets his sound and show apart from other bands. Shark Alley Hobos (New Orleans Jazz) Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and San Francisco Bay Area treasure, Mikie Lee Prasad followed the stars and gathered a ragged band of his most trusted musicians who shared a love of the sea, sharks, pirates, New Orleans, and hobos. Out of this grog-infused meeting the Shark Alley Hobos were spawned. Drawing upon timeless ballads of the sea, modern day spirits-inspired sing-a-longs, and original songs of wanderlust and debauchery, the Shark Alley Hobos will have you shivering your timbers and raising a glass to good friends and good times. This group of ne'er do wells, with their passion, punctuality, and crowd-pleasing roguery, have led many an awestruck bartender to lament, "We're gonna need a bigger bar" Come join the Shark Alley Hobos for an evening you'll wish you could remember. Steve Lucky & the Rhumba Bums featuring Miss Carmen Getit (Blues/Boogie) Called "Instant Crowd Favorites" by the San Francisco Blues Festival and "Consummate musicians and entertainers" by New York City's Lincoln Center, Lucky and Getit really shine before a live audience, bringing an intense energy and sheer personal magnetism to the stage, exercising wit in a continuous battle of the sexes. They've earned a reputation as captivating entertainers with "superior musicianship" (Downbeat), engaging audiences at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Half Note Jazz Club in Athens, Greece, the San Francisco Blues Festival, as the house band at the Derby in Hollywood, and hundreds of nightclubs, festivals, and performing arts centers around the world. Not to mention CNN's "Showbiz" with Jim Moret, PBS' "CD Highway", a Bravo! documentary "This Joint Is Jumpin'!", “Locals Only” on FOX, and on CBS’ Good Morning America.
