HopMonk Tavern Sebastopol; celebration of beer, food, music, and people. Voted Sonoma County’s Best Music Venue!
There’s no substitute for being here, Live.
We feel it too. That certain longing for shared experiences around our favorite band or artist, fresh beer and friends. Those shows are still a-ways-off, so we turned a few knobs and are pleased to present our live streaming “In the Meantime Series” Keep an eye on the HopMonk Facebook pages for upcoming events.
Hang in there and hang on everyone!
The recent conditions have had a crushing effect on our music venues and all the musicians we love so much. The money donated during the Live Stream is split between the musicians performing on our Facebook page, and the people at HopMonk Presents, who package and produce the In the Meantime Series.
Dirty Cello…cello like you’ve never heard before!
From China to Italy, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!
Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.
– Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine
The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman’s playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you’ll wonder why more bands don’t have a cellist.
– Good Times Santa Cruz
The group seamlessly careens from blues to bluegrass and rock in a way that really shouldn’t make sense but somehow does.
