The Warehouse
Sharing a crazy fun afternoon small town gig with Sandi & The Rockerfellers.

The Rockerfellers are also sitting in on McNevin tunes too. A lot of R&R, some originals, wherever the wind blows the set list. This is both a family-freindly and biker-freindly place on the Carquinez Straights, on the water. Watch the container ships, sailboats, and the beautiful reflection of chrome off the Harley's parked out in the dirt. Near Vallejo, Crocket, Hercules area. Cool town, smaller than Niles if you can believe that.
