Indie New School Pop Folk Roots Soul

Satellite Sessions is an original music concert series, designed to show the best of our talented artists here in the Bay. A year of shows has seen some big growth in the scope of the project, despite some of the setbacks we all have faced. We’re excited to finally hold the first Satellite Session in Totara St.
