Gaby Castro

Born and raised in the heart of Silicon Valley, Gaby Castro is a folk/Americana singer-songwriter with the soul of a mountain songbird. She has the poise and presence of performers twice her age, but that should come as no surprise as she’s been performing since the age of 14. Her voice is described as soft and sweet, her lyrics contemplative and powerful. Her songwriting incorporates the lyrical power of Carole King, infectious hooks of Taylor Swift, and storytelling feel of Jewel. Over the years she’s gained a loyal following from her songs and stories about life, love and mental health. Her upcoming fourth album delves heavily into the latter, exploring her struggles with depression and anxiety much like the stages of grief; feeling each raw emotion but ending in acceptance and finding a path forward. Let her music tell the stories.

OMB Michael Ofeish

People have often referred to Mike as a One-Man-Band (OMB) or a Jukebox because he can play so many different tunes on request and is happy performing solo.
“I get charged up when I connect with a live audience. Whether that means getting them to sing along to “Country Road Take Me Home” or the “Gambler “or to dance to their favorite Country or Classic Rock & Roll tune.  I believe that it’s important for me to use my musical gift to bring joy to people’s lives. I’ve volunteered as a music teacher for kids through Music for Minors and for the past 7 years I’ve been singing to cancer patients at UCSF.    Playing music and engaging with a live audience fills my heart with joy,” –Mike “One Man Band” Ofiesh.  For private bookings, contact Michael at: e-mail
