December 2014

Ohlone Rock Combos
With a Little Help From Our Friends…

Led by Dr.Jim McManus and featuring The Horn Dogs Horn Section.

You will no doubt ever see a more eclectic combination of songs from a more electic combo of combos, with songs from Radiohead and the Grateful Dead, Disturbed and Dave Matthews, Joan Jett and Etta James, the Beatles and Death Cab for Cutie. Sad songs. Happy songs. Bizarre songs and Bob Marley. Plus three one-minute brass ensemble pieces.

28 performances in all. Not bad for a night's work.
