The founding member of renowned Bay Area band for kids Octopretzel, Melita has been performing and teaching music to kids for over 15 years. When recent events caused all her regularly scheduled classes and gigs around the San Francisco Bay Area to be cancelled, she decided to bring her classes online in the most engaging and interactive way possible — using Facebook Live. We are excited to offer another series of classes this week for kids seven and under — though the classes are ideally suited for kids three to six, we’ve had many people enjoy these live streamed classes with older or younger kids. These music classes will be as interactive as possible — be prepared to type ideas from your kids into the comments so Melita can weave them into her songs and stories.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all live performances and gatherings of any kind, have been canceled. Social distancing has left us all feeling extremely secluded and possibly disconnected from the world. We wanted to find a way to bring us all together during a time that seems like the world wants us to separate. Also, COVID-19 has left countless performance artists without income. As freelance artists, our livelihood depends on performances. Even though these gigs have been canceled, rent and bills are still due. We decided to put together an online festival as a way to raise money for freelance artists, including ourselves, to help with these financial burdens. This festival is a way to experience incredible live art and connect with festival-goers without having to be worried about catching anything! Also, if you want to, you will be able to communicate with other festival goers and the artists through chatting on livestream!
Sat & Sun, March 28 & 29, 2020 (6:00pm-8:30pm PDT)

As quoted by the Los Angeles Times, Toledo is “the coolest cat working in Hollywood.” Add to that, “Toledo has learned from the best and it shows in his performance,” “the show is top notch and really must be experienced” and “… it’s apparent where he is: establishing himself as one of the hottest acts in modern music.” Toledo. Soul singer, jazz man, poet, dancer, choreographer, connoisseur of haberdashery and probably one of the most dramatic and entertaining performers you will ever see. He’s toured the majority of the United States, as well as Australia, and has yet to get anything but a rave review. His vocal stylings have been compared to Tom Waits, Marvin Gaye, Sly Stone and Barry White, while his music has been described as “avant jazz,” “acid jazz,” “gangsta jazz,” “beat poetry,” “funked-up spoken word” and probably the most descriptive “smokey-storyteller/laid-back Cab Calloway/Tom Waits killer R&B with jazzy rock ‘n’ roll dance grooves.”
