Faith Petric Stage - Auditorium 5:45-6:30

Maurice Tani is a "rye-to-romantic, supercalifornigraphic" singer-songwriter specializing in a cinema-for-the-blind style. His band, Maurice Tani & 77 El Deora has been the source of untold, but exquisite suffering in the Bay Area for over a dozen years. He has released six critically-acclaimed albums of original material over the past dozen years. His most recent include two released simultaneously: a studio album, “Blue Line”, “Two Stroke”, an album of acoustic duos and trios with bassist Mike Anderson and a variety of others performers, and “TWANG” a collection of previously-released original honky honk songs and his trademark “Trailer Park Operettas”.

“I was actually blown away. Tani writes songs that sound at once familiar, ethereal and beautiful.” -Robert Sproul, No Depression Magazine
