featuring Jill Dineen
Saturday, July 22, 2023
The Carmen Ratti Band featuring Jill Dineen began its journey in 2018, as Carmen brought together some of the finest musicians of the Bay Area including Jill Dineen, to bring forth his vision of a contemporary blues band. Driven by Carmen’s inspiration, good players, and the powerful vocal stylings of Jill Dineen, they were up and running. They are members of the Golden Gate Blues Society and the Sacramento Blues Society. You can expect to hear blues, funk, and rhythm & blues, all with a strong blues rock foundation that will light-up the stage right here in Pacifica. Bring your dancing shoes!
