First - huge thanks to those who came out to our show at Richmond's DueStudio - what a fabulous venue! For those who have not been there, do check in out. You won't be disappointed.
Mark your calendars - Loretta has the pleasure of playing with two great local bands, the honky tonk revival group Crying Time and AmeriPop's (forget Gary Cooper and Loretta Young - it's the band!) Along Came Jones at Oakland's newly famed Awaken Cafe (14th and Broadway) on Saturday, March 14th. Yes, that's right. It is also International Pi Day (3.1415 ... just see what happens at 9:26!) and - you guessed it - an early show! Doors open at 6 PM, and we will go on at 7:00 for a 45 minutes set followed by our talented friends, but all will leave you plenty of time to get your Pi on in whatever way you wish. We sincerely hope your plans include whipped cream.
Awaken has fantastic organic food and a huge list of craft beers and fine wines (Seriously! Check it out! Green Flash on tap? Mmmmm) - all good reasons to come on down to Awaken!
Hope to see your lovely selves there,

We are delighted to announce that Loretta has been invited to play an early concert at DueStudio in Richmond on Saturday, January 31st. DueStudio (6370 Arlington Blvd, Richmond 94805 is the home of musicians and sound engineer Marci and Ricardo Valdivieso, whose band Duamuxa (http://www.duamuxa.com/) has been gracing venues with South American-inspired music in the Bay Area and around the country for years. They
DueStudio is just the style of intimate venue we love – with a fantastic small-scale sound system, good wine, beer and homemade organic food available for cash donation. Check out their FB page for information and pictures from past shows. https://www.facebook.com/Duamuxa As if this weren’t enough enticement, our own Nathan will be coaxing the rhythm out on the cajón for this one.
The doors open at 7:30, and the show begins at 8PM. You’ll have plenty of time to don your combat boots and hit the mosh pits afterwards, but at DueStudio you can eat, drink and relax as we serenade you with our sweet and sometimes slightly salty songs – with a little bitterness and and an edge never too far out of reach.
Hooray for new venues! We hope to see your smiling mugs there.
First – we’d like to thank the throngs of you who congratulated Loretta Lynch on being nominated for the esteemed position of US Attorney General. Please do come to our shows and consider them an opportunity to share your opinions about where legal talons will best be attached.* Should we have hopes for a White House gig?
Secondly and most importantly - celebrate with us this Saturday night, November 22nd at the Starry Plough in Berkeley! We have the pleasure of playing with both the fabulous Yard Sale (we haven’t played with them in many an election cycle!) and the talented Heartache Sisters, who will be joined by Heartache brother Maurice Tani. What an evening! Yard Sale will go on at 9PM sharp, followed by Loretta and Heartache Sisters. Rumor has it that the gals of Loretta will be hopping on stage for a Heartache Sisters song ... We are so lucky!
So don your dancing shoes and bring yourself and your appetite for song and sustenance (both liquid and solid – the beer is good and the food tasty at the Plough!) this Saturday. See you there!
Once again we have been laying a little low, but never fear - we’re back with a vengeance (and some of our songs recount this in detail)! Join us Saturday, November 22nd at the Starry Plough for an Autumn Moonlight Fiesta! We are so happy to be playing with two of the Bay Area’s favorite female fronted bands – Heartache Sisters and Yardsale!
As if this weren’t enough, fabulous heartache brother Maurice Tani will be stepping in with Heartache Sisters, and the ladies of Lynch will be stepping in as well. A supergroup Saturday! Yardsale will open, Loretta will be the sandwich filling and Heartache Sisters and Brother Maurice will close the evening out with a bang.
We are pleased as punch to be headed back up to the delightful town of Port Costa on Thursday, Aug. 14th – this time to play at the famed Bull Valley Roadhouse ( http://www.bullvalleyroadhouse.com/ )! We’ll be playing in the historic bar room starting at 7:00 and we’ll offer up a coupla sets ending by 8:45 or so.
If you haven’t been to Port Costa – you are really in for a treat! From a recent review - “Everything in Port Costa is wild, whimsical, or wicked.” It’s a town that time forgot, both sweet and derelict and full of character. The Bull Valley Roadhouse is no exception – check out the Chronicle review here: http://www.sfgate.com/restaurants/diningout/article/Bull-Valley-Roadhouse-Port-Costa-old-time-vibe-4264416.php#photo-4153358
If you are tired afterwards, make a reservation at the Burlington Hotel right next door!
Loretta will be playing both old and new tunes to tap your feet and tipple to. Join us!
