Last weekend in Big Sur, to my complete surprise we (Marc & The Casuals) performed ‘Sail On Sailor’ with Beach Boy, Al Jardine! Here he is with myself, Aaron Olson and Jessica Espeleta.
That same afternoon, the Bart Davenport Band played a tight set. Later that night, we played at our pal Miller Carr’s wedding. I’ll be up north again this Saturday to perform at Miller’s record release show at my beloved hometown pub, The Starry Plough! Guitar wizard, Matt Baldwin is opening the show and I’ll have a couple of local celebrity guests, Tom Ayres (Persephone’s Bees) and Adrianne DeLanda (Extra Classic)!
It’s an honor to be included in this year’s Hipnic lineup which includes such heavies as The Flamin’ Groovies, Nicki Bluhm, Jonathan Wilson and the great Al Jardine! I’ll perform twice on Sunday afternoon, May 17, first with the BD Band and later that day, a set with Marc & The Casuals. Pack up your tent and we’ll see you there!
Hello little bunnies! I will be in San Francisco on Friday, March 20, playing in Marc & The Casuals at THE CHAPEL. There will be several amazing guest performers sitting in that night, including Adrianne DeLanda (Extra Classic) and the great Nick Waterhouse!
The following night on Saturday March 21, I’ll do a solo set at DOCS LAB, the former location of the legendary Purple Onion! One of my fave singers, Rykarda Parasol will also perform along with a new group called Little Person – featuring twin brothers Nicky and Max of the esteemed Weinbach Family! There’s limited seating and advance tickets are cheaper. I encourage you to buy advance tix by CLICKING HERE!
Finally, on Friday, March 27 The Bart Davenport Band will perform an early set in Los Angeles, opening for Will Sprott, Luke Sweeney and La Luz at the beautiful and historic HM157 in Lincoln Heights!
I’ll be back in my homeland, Berkeley CA for Valentine’s Day with two of my very fave musical acts, THE MOORE BROTHERS and ANNA HILLBURG! For advance tickets, click HERE!
Ole! I’m soon headed back to Spain to do nine solo acoustic concerts. After that, I’ll meet up with Mike Therieau, John Kent and Xan McCurdy in León, Spain to perform as The Loved Ones at Purple Weekend Fest!
Before all this, the Bart Davenport Band will perform in LA at 1300 in Echo Park with TV Mike, L.A. Takedown and Dick Pics. Busy, busy, busy…
Wow. I’ve been around so long that my music is being “reissued”. Two classic BD tunes, ‘The Saviors’, b/w ‘Beg Steal Borrow’ are now on a beautiful, new 7inch 45 rpm single. Lovingly put together by You Are The Cosmos, it features photography from the same period by the mega-talented Terri Loewenthal. For US customers, the best way to purchase is from good ol’ GET HIP RECORDS (full circle, the first record I ever made was on Get Hip)! People in the rest of the world can and should buy it HERE on the YATC site.
I’m pleased as punch to announce two solo shows, supporting Echo & The Bunnymen!
July 30 – The Observatory – Santa Ana, CA
August 01 – Orpheum Theatre – Los Angeles, CA

Hola! The BD Band tour of Spain was a bonafide success. A big thanks to C4 Management, Lovemonk Records, A Reixa, and La Castanya! Highlights include stellar shows in Madrid, Pamplona and Santiago de Compostela, plus a sweet television appearance for Radio Tres TV. To view that performance, clickhere.
Magically, at the end of the tour we got to meet legendary Aztec Camera frontman, Roddy Frame. We’d been covering his hit, ‘Oblivious’ in our concerts every night, as an encore. To our surprise, the man himself was doing a solo show in Madrid on our last night in town and we got to meet him.
Next up, we play Harvard & Stone in Los Angeles, sharing a bill with our handsome pals Luke Sweeney and Miller Carr. There will be a west coast tour in July with Extra Classic, so stay tunes for those dates!
