Will you like Thunderground Collective, the music group that came out of Occupy SF, to play the fundraiser. They/we can play amplified or acoustic and consists of anywhere from 1 singer/songwriter with guitar, bass, and drums, to multiple vocalists/songwriters with stand up bass, classical violin, horns, and more. If so, when is best for them to play and how long of a set?

Thank you! 
P.s. I think Kyle and I are happy to help with sound equipment and running sound. We have large subs, PAs, sound board, mics, etc.
