Clint Baker's Golden Gate Swing Band

Returning for their third year at Fog City Stomp...

Clint Baker’s Golden Gate Swing Band combines the best elements of traditional New Orleans jazz with Kansas City swing, creating an ensemble sound that's tight and loose all at the same time. With a solid, swinging, rhythm section driving the music and talented soloists spinning melodies, it's no wonder dancers connect easily to the band's tunes.

The AU Brothers Jazz Band

The Au Brothers (Gordon, Brandon & Justin) have been playing the traditional jazz of New Orleans ever since their uncle, High Sierra trombonist Howard Miyata, turned them on to the music at an early age. Among them, they have amassed three music degrees and performed with various ensembles at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Preservation Hall, Cafe Carlyle, and the Sydney Opera House, as well as at the Monterey, Redcoast Coast, Pismo, Montreux, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage, New York Hot Jazz, and North Sea jazz festivals. The brothers' unpredictable and entertaining selections include a variety of traditional tunes, originals, and even movie/TV themes arranged in the trad jazz style.


Kally Price Old Blues & Jazz Band

Returning for their third year at Fog City Stomp...

Kally Price is a singer, songwriter, and bandleader dedicated to singing from her heart, pulling from her spirit the timelessness of the music from the 1920s, '30s and '40s.  She especially enjoys singing with her old blues and jazz band comprised of other diamonds-in-the-rough souls who are committed to playing music that is honest and rooted.  This music is nothing without the San Francisco Bay Area audience who listen and dance with open ears and hearts, adding their energy to the music.
