Hello, fans and friends ~ July, 2021
We are very excited to return to performing after a year and a half!
When the pandemic began in 2020 and the governor's order shut down bars, wineries, brew pubs and indoor service for restaurants, we found ourselves in a long period of uncertainty. We're grateful for the essential workers who sustained us all. We're also grateful for our fans who have continued to listen to our music on CD or through this website.
We have looked forward to the time when it would be safe to gather again for live music, and we know that we must be cautious as we gradually resume public events. Please continue to be mindful of your own health and considerate of others. Be kind. Be safe out there.
We will post new performance dates on our calendar as they develop. Hope to see you soon!

More from the Sidekicks:
Marty, Ken, Jeff and Tony wish to thank all our supporters – fans old and new, owners/operators of local venues that feature live music, and above all our families and friends.
Thanks go to everyone at our great venues: Ettore’s Bakery and Café (ettores.com) and Fox and Goose Public House (foxandgoose.com) in Sacramento; California Organics Market and Café (californiaorganics.com) in Nevada City; Heritage Oak Winery (heritageoakwinery.com) and Macchia Winery (macchiawines.com) in Lodi; Sundstrom Hill Winery in Davis (sundstromhill.com); Le Casque Winery (casquewines.com) in Loomis, and Miner’s Leap Winery (minersleap.com), Julietta Winery (juliettawinery.com) and Heringer Estates Winery (heringerestates.com) in Clarksburg. All these establishments are local family-owned businesses, and we urge you to support them. We hope to be back to each of them soon, in addition to appearing at some new venues.
We've enjoyed many other memorable venues, including the Music at Noon Concert Series at Westminster Church in Sacramento (westminsac.org/music-noon), the National Night Out (at Gibbons Park), a Suburban Kiwanis fundraiser in Carmichael, the 40th Anniversary of Mansour’s Rug Gallery in Roseville, several intimate house concerts, and the Holiday Music Series at the Sacramento International Airport (5 years!).
Our third CD, No Grudges (2017), is still very popular, along with Take A Chance (2006) and As Yet Untold (2009). You, too, can be the proud owner of our music:

We look forward to more live performances and opportunities to bring Sidekicks music to a larger audience. Thank you for your continued support!
