We had some top players in for this concert.Our lineup was staring from the bay area world touring funk band Lydia Pense and Cold Blood.From the Ritchie Valens family we bring you little brother Mario and his Backyard Blues Band.In 2001 the Backyard Blues Band performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when they inducted Ritchie Valens.Marioís hard rocking blues also features some unreleased songs written by his late brother Ritchie as well as new material written by the band.Popa Dave Montano returns from sabbatical to bring you his new hired guns, the STATICS.

The brainchild of Popa Dave Montano, a disabled Veteran himself and musician Getting it Back was to recover funds embezzled from the Marysville VFW.
