Royal Jelly Jive
Royal Jelly Jive
Few bands have the ability to evoke an old-school throwback vibe and yet sound entirely fresh and new at the same time. Royal Jelly is one of those bands. Combining elements of Soul, Rock, Swing and Hip-Hop, Royal Jelly shakes up any dance-party and grooves harder than your typical rock n' roll band dares to go. Fronted by the enigmatic singer Lauren Bjelde, who brings a one-of-a-kind sultry voice to her magnetic stage presence, Royal Jelly leans on the sounds of swingin' horns, gritty keys and a bumpin' rhythm section to carry a crowd into bliss... creating an unforgettable live experience that will leave you wanting more.

Since forming in San Francisco's own Boom Boom Room in the summer of 2013, Royal Jelly has quickly ascended to become one of the Bay Area's most anticipated acts. After releasing their debut album to a packed house at Slims in late 2014, they hit the road and and have been touring non-stop ever since. Playing hi-energy shows and festivals in cities and towns all across the West Coast, they have captivated the ears and hearts of almost all who hear them, intoxicating the masses with their unique and infectious music. They have been lucky enough to share stages with notable acts such as Michael Franti, Rebrirth Brass Band, The California Honeydrops as well as performing at this past year’s Outsidelands Music Festival, Soul’d Out Music Festival, Rivertown Revival, and Redwood Mountain Faire.
Trace Repeat
Trace Repeat
Trace Repeat is a funk and soul band from Oakland, CA. They bring that old school funky from back in the day. That James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince kind of funk. Get down on it.
Van Goat
Van Goat
Van Goat takes the tradition of fun, fast, eclectic surf rock started by bands like The Pixies and The Minutemen, mixed with their own brand of swing punk reminiscent of The Squirrel Nut Zippers. Fast, crass, and extremely catchy, Van Goat’s music is defined by constant hooks and changes.
