It’s Friday!

Tonight the Torch Club welcomes the talented guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, producer Volker Strifler. While grounded in the blues, Volker’s music incorporates so many influences, it’s hard to define. He is an international performer and recording artist and has represented the Sacramento Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge. Always putting on an exciting and powerful performance, this is a musician who is not to be missed!

Bonnie and the Bang Bang tonight!

The Bay area band, Bonnie and the Bang Bang, begins a mini-tour at the Torch Club tonight. Their dark country/post-folk sounds are brought to you on vocals, melodica, guitars, banjo, mandolin and keys. Get your weekend rolling!


A Twofer fer your Wednesday night

The Torch Club welcomes Vandella tonight, bringing swampy, guitar-driven rock, the dusty twang of Americana and the amber honey of country-tinged folk. This San Francisco Band has just released a new CD, Fire in the Desert. Also tonight the return of West of Next, whose music is described as Western Rock and Bop. These talented players bring original compositions from “an era that hasn’t happened yet”. Your future begins tonight at the Torch Club!

Funktion for your Tuesday!

Can’t decide what to do tonight? It’s not too late to catch Funktion at the Torch Club. Maybe it’s their silky smooth R&B that gets you. Or maybe it’s the cool island dub rhythms that grab your ears. Then again it might be the rowdy hip-hop flavor that seizes your attention. But if none of that snatches your marbles, the unhinged, guitar-fueled fireball of funk might do the trick. Come out and decide for yourself!

It’s first Sunday!

Hey chicos y chicas, hombres y mujeres, a little hungover from your Cinco de Mayo? We have the perfect cure for you – mas musica! Muchas musica! Since today is the first Sunday of the month, happy hour features the music of Aaron King and Friends. Followed this evening at 8:00 by the Souterrain and the West Nile Ramblers, two bands to bring you some folky, bluegrassy, garage western sounds.

Cinco de Mayo

Hey, it’s not too late to go to the Torch Club to round out your Cinco de Mayo celebration tonight. If you go now, you can be there in time for Con Brio’s second set and there are still plenty of drinks available! Don’t forget to tip your bartender!

Seth Augustus at the Torch Club!

San Francisco Singer- Songwriter, Bluesman, and Throat singer Seth Augustus makes an appearance at the Torch Club tonight. His music has been called uniquely old and new. Sounds like exactly what we need on a Thursday night. Let’s keep this week rolling and be ready for Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Howell Devine returns!

The Howell Devine trio is back again tonight. Do you enjoy down home blues? How about some raw slide guitar and a hot rhythm section playing the sounds of the old south? Throw in a little harp and you’ve got something that will really get you going. Howell Devine is not just your run-of-the-mill bar band. If you missed them last time, here’s your chance to make up for it! It will ease you on into the second half of your week with a smile and continue your preparations for the approaching Cinco de Mayo.

Dippin’ Sauce Tonight!

Get your music week started the right way by jumping in with BOTH feet. Tonight it’s Matt Rainey and Dippin’ Sauce, which also features Torch Club favorite Steve Wall. These electrifying practitioners of the blues are just what you need to start warming up for the big Cinco de Mayo event this weekend.

The Laurie Morvan Band is here!

In keeping with a compelling theme in Sacramento (have you been out around the Capitol today or watching the news?) the Torch Club tonight continues a weekend of strong women on our stage. Tonight it’s the Laurie Morvan Band! Laurie is a top notch guitarist and songwriter backed by a great cast of players and is a multi-award winner including Best Self-Produced CD at the International Blues Challenge. If you’re looking for a great time and some great music tonight, you’ll find it here at the Torch Club.
