The Beat Meters play their own funky pop/jazz originals and a smattering of interestingly re-arranged rock, pop, jazz, country, and blues standards. The personnel includes Sourdough Joe on lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and saxophone, Chef Geo on guitar, Kevin Koleman on drums, Jean Goodall on bass, and sometimes Judy Rodrigues on percussion. They are a live, working band featured 2nd Sundays of the month at Toots Tavern in Crockett CA, 3rd Sundays at The Bistro in Hayward, and from time to time at The Big Easy in Petaluma, Ernie's Tin Bar, and various other venues/events in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. They also can perform recognizable dance cover material for any event, provide dinner jazz for a wedding reception, the traditional ceremonial music for most weddings, and can provide their own in-house DJ.

Their album can be found on Apple Music and on Spotify at Left Coast Lounge Groove or Neon Roads. Check out The Beat Meters to keep up on live appearances.
