Hot Buttered Rum BandSan Rafael, CA -- The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts is delighted to present their favorite opener for the Osher Marin JCC’s Summer Nights Festival. This local progressive bluegrass act aims to weave together traditional folk and bluegrass with modern influences, creative group values and uplifting harmonies. Initially formed as an acoustic string band, Hot Buttered Rum has evolved into a powerhouse that wows critics and fans alike. From “high altitude bluegrass” to “Left Coast Rock”, their music reveals an access to jazz, country, and world music that few groups can match. A perfect concert to kick off this family-friendly celebration with friends, live music and the cultures of our Bay Area together in Marin.

The venue begs for picnicking but offers the choice of purchasing delicious and affordable meals on-site from San Rafael’s Big Jim’s BBQ pop-up restaurant. No alcohol is allowed to be brought in, but is available for purchase. Seating choices include turf, picnic or cabaret tables for 4.

The JCC’s own Summer Camp hosts the Kid Zone offering up an art project alongside the playground for youngsters. A Georgi & Willow pop-up shop will offer festival shopping and add to the full Marin community experience.
