The Mother Hips

The Bay Area's own legendary rock band The Mother Hips return with their special annual autumn treat for North Bay audiences with a two-night Halloween run at Sweetwater Music Hall featuring a full-band acoustic show on Wednesday, October 30 and Rock 'n Roll Halloween Bash on Thursday, October 31, 2019.

The 12th incarnation of the Petaluma Music Festival, proceeds of which are allocated to local public school’s music programs, packed a potent punch on August 3. This year’s all-Bay-Area-band fest’s pleasing musical patchwork, which fueled lively dancing, swaying and foot-tapping, was led by prominent rock ‘n’ jam bands ALO, David Nelson Band, The Mother Hips, Hot Buttered Rum, Blame Sally, New Monsoon, and Royal Jelly Live.

Today, Mother Hips frontman, Tim Bluhm releases a new single "The Only Solution," recorded in Northern California with producer  Dave Schools  (Widespread Panic's founding member/bassist). Earlier this year, Tim released a Top 50 Americana album entitled  Sorta Surviving where he embraces a second chance and a new appreciation for life after a dangerous speed flying (a more intense version of paragliding) accident.

Blue Rose Music is proud to announce that The McCrary Sisters and The Mother Hips (Tim Bluhm & Greg Loiacono) have been added to the lineup for the 6th annual Blue Rose Benefit. Taking place on June 8th at San Francisco’s legendary venue, The Fillmore, the Blue Rose Benefit will once again raise money for the Blue Rose Foundation with 100% of ticket sales going towards funding pre-school scholarships for financially disadvantaged children in the Bay Area.

Longtime Mother Hips guitar slinger, vocalist, and songwriter Greg Loiacono, in partnership with Blue Rose Music, is excited to announce the release of his new single, “Close Your Eyes (We’ll Be There Soon)”—the second in a series of releases for 2019.

Today, Tim Bluhm releases his new full-length solo album Sorta Surviving via Blue Rose Music. Known as the frontman for praised rock outfit The Mother Hips, Sorta Surviving is a testament to Bluhm’s versatility as an artist and honed skill as a songwriter. Recorded while coping with a recent divorce and during recovery from a nearly-fatal paragliding crash, the album finds Bluhm at a unique place – grateful, appreciative for his life, and more determined than ever.

This marks the 12th year for what has become one of the most highly regarded festivals on the West Coast. The Petaluma Music Festival will take place on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019, at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds & Event Center in Petaluma.

Singer-songwriter Tim Bluhm himself affirms below in this new interview with Grateful Web: “I never come up short when it comes to songs.” And It’d be really hard to discredit the man. The California-bred musician has been touring professionally for the better part of thirty years, many of those as the frontman for the legendary Mother Hips, but also during that time as a prolific individual artist, putting his unique mark on modern country.

Tim Bluhm is set to release his new full-length solo album, Sorta Surviving, on March 29, 2019. A gentle departure from his usual California-Soul sound of the Mother Hips, Sorta Surviving finds Bluhm living out his classic country musical dreams. Produced by Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools and anchored by all-star band members Jesse Aycock (guitar, vocals) and Jason Crosby (piano, violin, organ), and Nashville session legends Gene Chrisman (drums) and David Roe (bass), Bluhm’s new album was recorded at Cash Cabin Studios in He

Green Leaf Rustlers have announced ten shows in California this March. They'll also make their Alaska debut with a performance at Alyeska Resort in April.
