“The Karins”, a spoof on all the memes and videos of ‘Karens’ over the pandemic. It’s going to be a tribute to Karin Carlson doing the greatest hits of her horn charts to celebrate her contributions to Techapalooza over the last decade. In the summer of 2021, she was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer and is not only a survivor but a living example of what CancerCare’s research and care can do. Let’s all live, laugh and love along with her and she joins us again on stage to perform after her incredible journey.

There are just too many songs and too little time. Track overflow brings you a subset of great classic rock songs that threaten to overflow the time allocated (due to the loud and long applause between songs of course). The band is going to break your heart as the set is only 25 minutes long.

Bill & Dave Lost in Silicon Valley
Bill and Dave visit The HP Garage, birthplace of the band; They were marooned there by COVID-19 and in the meanwhile really got into the California music scene. Dave stayed behind to find himself in Laurel Canyon. Bill came back and recruited Bill Jr. to help the band carry on.
The band is covering the California music scene from Surf to Country and Classic Rock, with a bit of 90’s Alt Rock thrown in for good measure. Not limited to just one style of dress and given their wide California influences, the band members are all Going Their Own Way, representing some of the classic California looks, 60’s surf and psychedelic, 70’s country type long-hairs, 90’s whatever that was.
