Blame Sally

Blame Sally is the combination of four Bay Area songwriters, Pam Delgado, Renee Harcourt, Jeri Jones, and Monica Pasqual. Though each is accomplished in their own right, it's the blend of their prodigious talent that creates a powerful sound that transcends genres. From country-pop ballads to rock and roll barn-burners, Blame Sally infuses each song with rolicking energy for an electrifying performance.

8pm to 9pm, Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, 2020 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA, 94704

After her January NY tour, she returns to the Bay Area for this appearance at The Back Room, where she will debut some new music from her EP, Believe. Together Eve Marie and Motoshi will perform Jazz classics and original compositions.
