The Live Oaks are a rapidly emerging Americana band that was started in the hills of Oakland. They evoke the classic spirit of San Francisco 60's rock & roll, with strong soul, rhythm & blues, and country influences. 
Recently helped sell out premier venues in San Francisco, both the Rickshaw Stop with Larkin Poe, and The Independent with Sweet Plot, and had the honor to open for Norman Greenbaum. Keep them on your radar, The Live Oaks have a new album coming this summer!
Main band members:
Annie Simmons AKA Ginger LaFontaine (guitar/vocals) 
Steve Jaeger (bass)
