Frobeck
Frobeck
Since 2005, Frobeck has been astonishing audiences throughout Northern California with their unique blend of Pop, Funk, and Rock music. With high-octane vocals, life-altering songs, and world-class musicianship it was only a matter of time before they launched to the forefront of the Northern California music scene. In 2008 they won a North Bay Music Award (NORBAY) for Best Rock Group and also won first place at the Mystic Theater Battle of the Bands in Petaluma. They have shared the stage with Bill Champlin, Bootsy Collins, WAR, Los Lonely Boys, Booker T, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, The New Mastersounds, Trombone Shorty, Papa Grows Funk, and many other nationally recognized acts. Boasting a full lineup of bass, drums, guitars, keys replete with sultry backing vocals, Frobeck covers all the bases. With an earth-shaking horn section, Frobeck has entered into the realm of their musical heroes: Tower of Power, The Sons of Champlin, and Stevie Wonder. Frobeck is sure to get your blood pumping, booty shaking, and your groove grooving.
Trebuchet
Trebuchet
Trebuchet is an indie rock quartet from Petaluma, CA.

Members: Lauren Haile, Paul Haile, Eliott Whitehurst and Navid Manoochehri.

These four met while attaining their music degrees from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, CA. Trebuchet originated in 2010, releasing a self-titled EP in 2012, followed by their first full-length, "Carry On" in early 2014. Later that year, the band was asked to perform at Napa's Bottle Rock Festival. In 2015, they performed an original piece at Weill Hall with the Santa Rosa Young People's Chamber Orchestra.

Many years of studying and working on various other musical projects together have afforded its members a strong musical chemistry: one that has helped them achieve a level of honesty on their second album, Volte-Face, which reflects the two years of drastic change in the life of lyricist Eliott Whitehurst that inspired it.

Lead single and album opener, A Confession, is the singer/guitarist’s admission to having not lived up to the musical expectations he had set for himself. The sentiment is shared by the group and echoed in their gang vocal approach; one that features heavily throughout the whole of Volte-Face. The opening reference to Whitehurst’s Catholic upbringing, however, is symbolic of his acceptance of the past, and the chorus refrain“Why am I expecting something better to chance by?” is as much the title-informing confession as a statement of resolve.
