Our lineup for the evening is big, bold and brilliant. Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s will rock our stage with their jumpin' and jivin', pumpin' n' poundin', New Orleans rhythm and blues, "rock-a-boogie" magic. Mark Hummel - a favorite in the Who's Who of harmonica history-will be joined by the amazing Blues Buddies, an all-star posse who'll raise the roof with their signature, steamy blues power. Phillip Percy Williams - an 11-year veteran of Beach Blanket Babylon-will bring the excitement of Broadway to San Francisco with his dazzling vocals and dramatic flair. He will be joined by Judy Hall on piano and vocalist Cami Thompson.

Other special guests include
Maria Muldaur and
Nicolas Bearde, 'Til Dawn and The San Domenico Virtuoso Program Quartet. It's a showcase of the kind of talent that has made Bread & Roses shows legendary for 38 years!   Read More About the Performers Here
