The Atlas Cafe Bluegrass and Old-time Jam is coming to an end, but it is also the 20th Anniversary and we want to celebrate in a big way! We are going to host a special 3 hour final edition with cameo appearances from some of our favorite bands, followed by a jam featuring the house band and special guests.

The Atlas Cafe Bluegrass Jam is the longest running bluegrass jam in the Bay Area.  JimBo Trout has hosted the jam and has also booked the Thursday night bluegrass series that goes back to 1996. Since its inception many world class musicians have made the small Atlas "stage" seem like a west coast version of the Grand Ol' Opry!

We endeavor to go out with a bang! Besides the house band we will also be featuring cameo appearances by the following bands (full or part):

Dark Hollow Bluegrass
Belle Monroe and her Brewglass Boys
Kentucky Twisters
Bermuda Grass
Savannah Blu
Gayle Lynn and the Hired Hands
Malibu Buckaroo
Skillet Licorice
