The Grammy-winning trio Train freights a cargo of breezy melodies and poignant jams, satiating legions of fans on the Mermaids of Alcatraz tour. With intrinsically catchy beats and crossover appeal, Train's euphonic anthems bridge the gap between the hearts and brains of millions. Best known for Grammy-magnet singles such as “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Drops of Jupiter,” and “Calling All Angels,” Train’s grooves, combined with Patrick Monahan’s lilting vocals, stick in ears and cause hips to shake. During the gripping live show, devotees can expect sing-alongs from Train’s catalog of smashes and cochleae candy from the band's latest album, California 37. Train even tickles die-hard fans' other senses with its own wine and chocolate brand, the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., which features song-based libations such as the Soul Sister pinot noir and the Drops of Jupiter red wine.
Train – “Drops of Jupiter” (Acoustic)
Michael Franti & Spearhead
Singer, poet, and guitarist Michael Franti broke onto the scene with boundary-pushing experiments in industrial music, jazz, and hip-hop before channeling his heightened social consciousness into a sunnier style. With a six-piece band including vocalist Jolene Rust and Nigerian-trained drummer Manas Itiene, he conducts a peace train that rolls on deep grooves of reggae, rap, folk, and soul. The band's most recent album, The Sound of Sunshine, has global inspiration built right into its DNA: many of the acoustic-based tracks were variously written in Bali and recorded in Jamaica, influences that spill out in their onstage instrumentation.
