3:30   Hali Hammer & Friends (Randy Berge and Paul Herzoff):

Hali Hammer is an award winning singer-songwriter and social activist who has sung and played for peace and political causes for over four decades. She is a founding member of Occupella, plays bass and sings with Jump-In (which performs “folk & oldies – don’t say it too fast) performs with The ReSisters, sang for many years with Freedom Song Network and can be found on many You Tube videos.

Hali’s original songs range from those about love and family to commentary about what’s going on in the world. In the darkest of times, her optimism shines through. Her latest CD, Eclectic Circus, shows Hali’s versatility. A new one is in the works.

She is accompanied by Randy Berge on lead guitar and Paul Herzoff on harmonica.

Randy Berge began his musical journeys with R&B and jazz-influenced rock and jam-bands in the 70s & 80s. He first took up acoustic music in the early 80s in the heyday of La Val’s Subterranean in Berkeley. He’s been performing regularly with Hali Hammer since 1999 and is a wonderful songwriter in his own right.

Paul Herzoff is widely known in the Bay Area as a harmonica player, photographer, and very funny guy. He also plays with Hali in Jump-In. His quick wit is evident in his original songs.


4:30   Genesis Fermin: Armed with a guitar, drums and an enigmatic, mournful voice, Genesis Fermin wades against the currents of today’s generation of singer-songwriters. She is not your chain outlet of musical treats but an unusual and singer-songwriter and musician. She is all about well crafted songs that reveal her ambitions, doubts and regrets. Her melodies reflect her soul, her words are snapshots of her life, and her vision is more her exploration of what she sees and what she hears and most importantly what she touches.
