What we're about

Welcome to Musical Happenings in and around Pleasanton! Let’s get together to listen to different styles of music: acoustic, rock, jazz, classical, good ol’ times, experimental – with no or minimal cover, in local and Bay Area venues. Duets, trios, solo performers, larger combos and bands, playing in nightspots, eateries, wine bars, breweries and performance halls.

A fun way to gather and hear some good tunes by local, regional, and even international talented musicians getting out there and being heard, and musicians who identify with their culture through the music they play or sing, improvise, and experiment with, from many places....continuing.

So join us, sign up if you’re pretty sure to attend. We like to mingle and get to know you. Thanks!

Ways to Volunteer - Californians For All


A New State Initiative will connect Californians with local governments and nonprofits. This is a public service: This is ongoing and with shelter-at-home you can volunteer from your home - the recommended way. I've signed up to sew face masks and to call seniors. As the stay-at-home orders decrease there will be more opportunities out in the community and I'll keep you posted for any actual ones to meet. Go to: https://californiavolunteers.ca.gov/get-involved/covid-19/ You can make a selection of where you'd like to volunteer, and they'll get back to you. If you speak another language they need translators. Food banks Delivering meals Tutoring Taking 211 calls Making face coverings Shelter facility Making calls to seniors Other local opportunities Nonprofits are struggling to provide services and the Governor is asking for help.
