The Paper Dolls – The Paper Dolls are San Francisco’s poster girls of all things raggedy glam! With two silken voices and two twinkling ukuleles these cherub faced chanteuses spin their magic on a repertoire of tunes that surely came out of a surrealist diner’s jukebox. From their ethereal cooing of Paper Moon to a rock-out tip of the ol’ tinsel top hat to daddy Elton John, to their hand-penned originals, they collage the unlikely with the unbelievable. Uni and Em Doll sing their hearts out like valentines to the world. These genre-bending beauties leave toes tapping and skin tingling wherever they appear — burlesque ballyhoos and birthday parties, cabarets and cafes alike. They’ll be gracing the ZinFest Entertainment stage, creating an other worldly delight of sight and sound.
2:00pm – 4:30pm
Mitch Woods & His Rocket 88’s – Mitch Woods and his Rockets 88’s have been the torchbearers of a great American blues musical heritage not for two years, but two decades. Taking their inspiration from the great jump n’ boogie outfits of the late 40’s and early 50’s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock ‘n’ roll. Woods styled his group after the jumpin’ ‘n’ jivin’, shoutin’ ‘n’ honkin’, pumpin’ ‘n’ poundin’ bands of Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Joe and Jimmy Liggins, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton. Adding a healthy dose of New Orleans rhythm and blues, pile-drivin’ piano, and some of his own contemporary playful lyrics, Woods and His Rocket 88’s forge their own brand of music they call “rock-a-boogie.”
