“I’ve had the joy of hearing the music of the Medicine Ball players many times. They raise high the spirits of the crowd with their wonderfully tight harmonies, irresistible and energetic rhythms, amazingly broad repertoire and skillful musicianship. Their playful banter between pieces adds to the enjoyment of their performances. They are wonderful and a joy to hear. I hope that many others will have that joy.”

    PICYA is hosting its Eighteenth Annual Wheelchair Regatta featuring the music of the Medicine Ball Trio. This event will once again provide veterans, many confined to wheelchairs, with the rare opportunity to experience a power boat cruise on the Oakland Estuary and San Francisco Bay along the San Francisco City front. Medicine Ball Trio features a revolving lineup of the very best multi-instrumentalists and vocalists performing in the Bay Area today. Band leader David Sturdevant draws from his deep roots in the art & music communities of Northern California to assemble an all-star lineup fully customized for every show. Guests will be treated to a picnic luncheon and entertainment on the grounds of Encinal Yacht Club. Most of our honored guests are U.S. Veterans residing in Northern California Veterans’ Homes and Hospitals. In order to make this event successful, powerboat skippers/owners are needed to donate their time and boats to host one or more guests aboard their vessel.
