The Medicine Ball Band is prized all over the Bay Area for bandleader and founder David Sturdevant's famous revolving door policy of uniting All-Star musicians and vocalists from near and far for every show - grand or small. Combining the feel good grooves of San Francisco Americana - where Swing meets Jazz, R&B gives Classic Rock its Roll - with the burning vibes of Blues and the vibrant rhythms of New Orleans Soul, the Medicine Ball is an endless party, made for dancing, fueled by spirited solos and spontaneous harmonizing that never ends. The music keeps going and you're obliged to follow it where ever, and for however long it goes.
