The next performers are TinMan, a classic rock band; Mariachi Azteca; Highwater Blues, a blues-based band; OTR, who plays anything from classic rock to R&B to today’s hits; The Peelers, one of the Bay’s best cover bands; and Dub FX, who combines reggae and hip hop music with intricate drum and bass rhythms.
