Midtown Social is a band raised and braised in the San Francisco Bay Area. We live in Oakland, Concord, Berkeley, and San Francisco. These last five years of making music and performing together has prepared us for our next step.

We know that we’re life long musicians. We believe in hard work and supporting our own dreams. This is why we’re working so hard to play High Sierra Music Festival. Being chosen to play a respected festival is a signal to us that our work and tenacity is paying off and aimed in the right direction. Winning this contest means that the intention we put into our songs – our heart – is reaching people in the way that we hoped it would.

We thank you for this opportunity and we’re so excited that you picked us for the final round. We hope to see you on stage. We’re gonna burn that _ _ _ _ down.

About the Band

It’s time to stretch, hydrate, and double-knot your dancing shoes, because the Bay Area’s favorite soul party band, Midtown Social, is making a run for High Sierra Music Festival!

Midtown Social is a nine-piece boogie machine. But it’s more than just a band. Together, these nine musicians are a collaborative community of writers, arrangers and artists. When they’re on stage, they invite you into the family. The mission is to spread the message of positive social change through art and music. MTS serves up food for hungry souls—fuel for a revolution of free, open and creative thought. Deeply inspiring and guaranteed to make you sweat just as much as it makes you think, Midtown Social presents a message of solidarity and hope, voiced by a community of people who are as diverse, bold, authentic, and vulnerable as the community in which they were forged. Midtown Social asks us all to come together, to find common ground, love and camaraderie, to fight for our communities, way of life, and rights—and to stand together as one.
