Opening number... Plus Tu Tourne

A bit of a trip out of the gate, eh? (we're still laughing about it)
but we got 'er going, thanks to all that luv in the audience comin' at us. Thanks!

The Fools Creek eclectic style says, “Come over to our house while we play you some of our favorite records.”
Their playlist includes Cajun, Mariachi, Appalachian fiddle tunes, Italian folk music, Americana, jazz standards,
originals, Puccini arias, rock classics, and the occasional pop tune with an East Bay twist.

Fools Creek band members are all working parents
grateful to their families for their love and support in this Foolish Endeavor.

Linda Schweidel (vocals, percussion); Marcia Condon (vocals, accordion);
