Festive Music Celebrations

Pleasant Hill Rec and Park District present A Celebration of Tom Petty’s Musical Legacy on December 1. The event features the local Tom Petty tribute band, The Big Jangle. There will be some special guests, including Garageland Rodeo, Dave Martin (The Buzztones and David Martin’s Houseparty), and Kevin Suto (The Bell Brothers and The VonTrapps). There will be some surprise guests as well. A portion of the proceeds will go to to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund. Buy tickets here.

The ninth annual Martinez Music Mafia Holiday Pageant and Toy Drive will be held on December 3 at Armando’s in Martinez -- a great event that not only featured some of the best musicians in the area but also benefits many local charities. Among the bands this year ware The Big J, Garageland Rodeo, Killbillies, The Martini Lounge, Midnight Flyer, and The New Frantics, with many other surprises. Admission is $10 and a new, unwrapped toy. This sells out quickly, so come early and stay late!
