The 8th annual Petaluma Music Festival was held on July 31st and August 1st at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds to raise money for the Petaluma public school music programs.
The swing and jive band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy started off the festival Friday night with a special concert, which included the option of VIP tickets for a gourmet dinner and complimentary wine and beer.
On Saturday the festival opened at noon and lasted until 9:00 p.m. with three stages and 15 bands. The headliners for Saturday were the jam rock band ALO, The Wood Brothers whose style comes from roots-music such as blues and folk, and the tribal hip hop/folk band Nahko and Medicine for the People.
Local band The Dixie Giants started off the festival playing high-energy traditional jazz. With the day already heating up, attendees set up chairs and blankets on the grass, milled about sipping on local wines and beers, and danced to the sounds of live music.
