San Francisco's most exciting live combo, The Barbary Coasters play a guitar-driven brand of rock & roll most reminiscent of a mid-sixties garage band. Their singer, Jessica Roux, fronts the band and is backed by Johnny Bartlett, David 'Sour' Troutt, Rick Kvoriak, Patrick 'Dr. Pat' Phelan, and Sammy 'Snake' Gutierrez. Once you get this band going, you can't slow them down. While they're primarily a vocal group, they can lay down surf instrumentals like they never got up.
