Bobby Cochran has had a long and important career in music, beginning in the Bay Area with a stint in the Army Band that brought him here. He subsequently played with Bobby Freeman, Carol Doda, Edwin Hawkins, Cold Blood, Tom Fogerty's Ruby and, of course, Elvin Bishop.

Ruth Davies, certainly one of the finest upright bassists around, is a legend in blues circles for her ten years with Charles Brown's late-life band. She has performed and recorded with John Lee Hooker, Maria Muldaur, Sammy Hagar, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Norton Buffalo, Barbara Dane and many others. She was recently a key member of Pamela Rose's successful staging of "Blues Is a Woman" in San Francisco. ruthdavies.com

Nancy Wright is everybody's favorite tenor saxophonist. She is a band leader in her own right and has released two CDs under her name, including last year's "Playdate" that won her a BMA nomination as instrumentalist of the year. She has performed and recorded with guitar legend Lonnie Mack, the Bey-Paule Soul Orchestra and many others. She just started a new career as a vocalist in the last few years and has won strong acclaim for her work. nancywrightmusic.com
