Linda Livingston
San Francisco Bay Area native Linda Livingston is a San Francisco State graduate, where she obtained her degree in Music. Livingston started playing the drums at 21 out of her search for something interesting to do. She ended up renting a set of Congo drums one day because she had been told that she had natural rhythm. She found this to be true. Soon afterwards the Timbale and trap drums where added to her percussive repertoire.

Livingston has performed in the Bay Area and beyond for 40 plus years. She has played along side of Sheila E., Pete and Juan Escovedo and Lenny Williams to name a few. Livingston is currently a member of the band "D-Hook." Formed in 2015, the group focuses on smooth jazz and original compositions.

Livingston is also an actress, she is currently performing at San Francisco's Cyclone Warehouse, where she has a role in "The Emperor Jones" by Eugene O'Neil.

Livingston will be accompanied by Daryl Bishop on bass, Reggie Brown on rhythm guitar, Rodney Connor, lead guitar, Lorenzo Macon on drums, and George Stanley on saxophone.

William (Bill) Norwood
Norwood's career as a musician began at the age of 4, through the encouragement of his mother, Dorothy Norwood. Throughout elementary and high school he sang in choir ensembles and developed a proficiency with percussion instruments and drums.

His first professional engagement was performing in his church. That experience led to performing Jazz and other styles of music. He has performed with acts such as: Robert "Magic Man" Winters, The Gospel Hummingbirds, Lenny Williams, The Drifters, Robin Duhe (original bassist for Frankie Beverly) and others.

Mr. Norwood has recorded with many artists in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is currently involved in several projects such as "Top Shelf Classics" and is a principle musician and coach with "Industry Coach" for TIBC TV. Industry Coach is dedicated to using the principles of Gratitude and Peace in educating and promoting young talent.

Norwood will be accompanied by Lorenzo Hawkins on keyboard, Arlington Houston on bass, Morris LeGrande on guitar and Roussell White on trumpet.
