Voted the 2008 Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Curt Yagi and his band (The People Standing Behind Me) have been performing throughout the Bay Area at major venues including The Fillmore, Bill Graham civic Auditorium, Union Square Amphitheater and Herbst Theater. Imagine waking up on a Sunday morning, not wanting to get out of bed and craving something for your mind, body and soul. With percussive guitar licks, breathy vocals, rhythmic beats and driving bass lines, Curt’s music will get you started on the right foot and keep you going for the entire day.
Hearing one of Curt Yagi’s original songs from his Close My Eyes (March 2011) album for the first time is like going for a walk in the woods and finding a unicorn. You keep listening to make sure it’s really what it seems to be — a real find.
Too funny! But when I listen to his music, I can picture someone walking into the woods and finding strange and unusal things! I can also see myself listening to this CD on a summers day with the windows rolled down just blairing this CD!
This CD is good background music for younger kids, though they would be dancing to it, but I think that older kids would go for this more. It’s not like baby-kid music. It can be compared to what’s on the radio and the bigger kids would never know that it isn’t…..yet! Some of these songs could be used to putting your younger babies to sleep. Just turn it down alittle and let the whole CD play. You baby will be asleep in no time with these soothing tunes and laid back music.
Curt not only writes and sings, oh no, he has more to offer than his beautiful voice! He has a charity called R.O.C.K (Real Options for City Kids).
Here is alittle bit about it:
ROCK was founded in September 1994 in response to the needs within San Francisco for enhanced public education programs and positive after school activities. Inspired by these needs, ROCK’s founding volunteers researched the problem and developed the idea of combining school based and after school learning enrichment programs with sports and fitness activities to promote healthy child development.
R.O.C.K provides these programs for the kids:
If you are in the San Fransico Area and would like to volunteer, here is how:
