Join us Friday Feb 9th for the 7th annual Beach Battle of the Bands at the New Parish in Oakland.  This is a not to be missed evening of music featuring three bands fronted by Beach dads slugging it out for the title of King of Baja rock and roll.

Friday, Feb 9. Doors open at 7pm.. Tickets: bit.ly/BeachBattle7

This year the musical lineup features:

  • The return of Kirk Markopolis cranking out tightly crafted, high-energy originals with Pillars of Hercules
  • Aaron Fisher and Brian Weiss bring funk, rock and soul with the East Bay Groove Corps
  • Current King Tod Puckett defends the title with the plugged-in, rocking mix of funk and countrified rock with the Puckett Family Project

The venue is the New Parish https://www.facebook.com/NewParish/ , one of the absolute best clubs in the burgeoning Oakland music scene.  Around the corner from the Fox Theater, it has two floors, balcony, couches, a patio area, two bars and great dance floor.

This is hands down one of the best evenings of the year. Low key. High energy. Great music in an awesome venue packed with your friends and neighbors, all in support of Beach Elementary.  Makes one realize how much amazing musical talent we have in the community, and a nice way to hang out with some really fun folks!

Don’t miss it!  Come out and celebrate the start of the school year, listen to some bluegrass music and catch up with old friends and new. If you’re training for the Fallfest 5K, it’s the perfect breakfast after your early Sunday training run. Enjoy a plate of made-from-scratch buttermilk, blueberry, chocolate chip, or oatmeal pancakes, plus sausage, bacon, fresh fruit and Peet’s coffee, all prepared by the Beach Dads Club.

We will have Beach gear available, and the return of the PancakeBot courtesy of the Piedmont Makers, where you can 3d print your favorite historical figure in edible pancake form.

The Beach Dads Club gratefully thanks our many community supporters: Pancake ingredients are generously donated by Mulberry’s Market, bacon & sausage from the Piedmont Grocery, fresh fruit and orange juice from Montclair’s Village Market, coffee from Peet’s on Piedmont Avenue, and of course the Piedmont Post.

Breakfast is followed by the Chalk Art Fair sponsored by PAINTS, where kids and adults can purchase chalk and a square on the play yard to decorate and enjoy. The event often draws PIXAR and other local artists as well as the kid’s drawings. Funds from the Chalk Art festival support art programs in the Piedmont schools.

The Beach Dads Club 6th Annual Battle of the Bands will be Friday, February 10 at the New Parish in Oakland. One of the best nights out of the year. Low key. High energy. Great music, makes one realize how much amazing musical talent we have in the Beach community. Nice way to hang out with some really fun folks and raise money for Beach Elementary. Doesn’t get much better.

The event: Adults 21 and older only. Tickets $25.
Best deal is to buy tickets ahead at http:bit.ly/battleofthebands6

Opening up the evening, Lucy’s Home Alone, a high school and middle school band made up of Beach alums Rachel Barton, Will and Paul Davies, Ellington Davis and Noah Rosenbaum will play a mix of soulful originals combined with classic and contemporary pop hits. Last year they brought the house down and raised the musical ante.

Then the Battle will begin when last year’s King of Padres, Brian Weiss and Tammy’s Camaro, light up the stage with a dance-worthy set of Rock, Pop, Alternative and Funk hits, b-sides and pretty much anything they think is cool from the 70’s up through today.  Next up, the Puckett Family Project, featuring Tod Puckett (Sophia, 2nd grade, Macy and Ella, 5th grade) will fire up a plugged-in, rocking mix of funk and countrified rock originals. To close the evening,Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!, a four-piece band featuring Aaron Fisher  (Wyatt, 5th Grade, Duncan 2nd, Milo, K)  will play a rousing set  rooted in an early-70’s rock sensibility, featuring songs from Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, the Meters, and more.

Call the babysitters now. If you’ve never been before, ask someone who went last year. You won’t want to miss it!
