What is an Anchor Donor?
Our Anchors are the good souls who donate $5, $15, $20 or more each month or some choose to make a gift of $25, $100 or more each quarter.
It’s a set it and forget it way of automating support for The Lost Church in a seriously meaningful (and tax deductible) way.
We wouldn’t still be here without our Anchors. You make a significant difference.
Our 2022 Anchor Donor Drive Goal is 50 New Anchors by May 31st.
All who become Anchors by the end of the month will receive this year’s Anchor Donor metal and cloissonné pin. We design a new pin each year for new Anchors and for Anchors who continue their support this year. Years from now you’ll have a sweet collection of limited edition pins to jazz up any jacket or hat.

This Week at Santa Rosa Stage
Thursday, May 12th | Doors at 7:30 Show 8:15-10:30pm
Loud As Folk with TERRIER (Ben & Erika from Brothers Comatose & T Sisters) + Jeremy Lyon (King Dream). Hosted by Spike McGuire
Loud As Folk (every 2nd Thursday at The Lost Church Santa Rosa) is a hub of the west coast songwriting scene focused on highlighting emerging artists with distinct approaches to all genres of American roots music. In the process of bringing these acts together for performances, a beautiful community naturally formed with artists and audience members alike. Now LAF is a global network of songwriters who collaborate, tour, and record in ever changing combinations. The organization is based in Reno, NV and operated by founder Spike McGuire and VP Greg Gilmore. Their dedication remains to preserving the craft of songwriting, whether it’s through your stereo or from the stage.
Lovechild/band composed of Erika of T Sisters and Ben of The Brothers Comatose.
Jeremy Lyon is a Bay Area songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who fronts indie psych-rock project King Dream. With a soulful voice, roots planted in the golden era of California psychedelia, and a wry energy that places him firmly in the 21st century, Lyon charts a path through timeless themes: disillusionment with oneself, with adulthood, with one’s country — and the discovery, time and again, that somehow there’s still plenty worthy of a love song.
Friday, May 13th | Doors at 7:30 Show 8:15-10:30pm
— a solo performance from the always fun founder of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band
Jim Kweskin is the founder of the legendary 1960s Jim Kweskin Jug Band with Fritz Richmond, Geoff Muldaur, Maria Muldaur, Mel Lyman and Bruno Wolfe. During the five years they were together, they successfully transformed the sounds of pre-World War II rural music into a springboard for their good-humored performances. Their imitators were legion, including a San Francisco jug band that became the Grateful Dead, a Los Angeles jug band that became the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a New York jug band that became the Lovin’ Spoonful. No other group attained their unique blend of youthful energy and antiquarian expertise, tight musicianship, loose camaraderie, and infectious swing.
Jim Kweskin’s shows radiate charm, humor, sophistication and talent. Jim sings a collection of familiar songs by Benny Goodman, Johnny Mercer, the Sons of the Pioneers, Fats Waller, and Somethin’ Smith & the Redheads. There’s an endearing sense of good humor to Kweskin’s interpretations that makes his performances a delight. Because of his vast repertoire and love of the music, Kweskin is recognized as one of the best interpreters of the great American songbook.

Hanna Haas (Portland OR) and Solström
Hanna Haas is a songwriter drawn to the dance of light and dark. Currently based in Portland Oregon, she has come to call the entire West Coast her home. Hanna describes her music as “contemplative folk,” identifying with artists Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, and Feist for their alternate tunings and mesmerizing melodies. Inspired by environments in which she has inhabited, Hanna sings of the dramatic landscape of Big Sur, the California sun, and the vast and open Pacific Northwest sky. Hanna loves to engage her audiences in sweet story-telling and laughter, leaving her audience in a state of heart-felt introspection. Hanna has played countless shows in Portland, OR and has become a part of the close knit community of West Coast artists. She has opened for artists such as John Craigie, Still Woozy, Juliana Barwick and others. Hanna has been working on her debut album “To Her, the Sea” and plans to release it in Spring 2022.
Solström is Americana music inspired by the sunshine daydream. Michael Solström, singer/songwriter, is based out of the redwoods of Occidental in Northern California. With a warm and haunting voice that blends traditional folk styles with modern stories and melodies.

Thursday, May 12th Episode (and all May episodes) feature
QUEEN LILI’UOKALANI & HAWAIIAN MUSIC WITH KAINANI HARTNETT
In the May episode, our guest is Kainani Hartnett, a musician who teaches and performs with her ensemble, ‘AHAmele here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We highlight the songs and compositions written by Queen Liliuokalani, her love for Hawaii and its native people, hula’s connection to lyrics, and beautiful Hawaiian culture.
QUEEN LILI’UOKALANI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lili%CA%BBuokalani
KAINANI HARTNETT was born in Hilo, Hawai’i and later settled in Honolulu with her family. She was drawn to hawaiian music and hula from an early age and it was what she turned to in college at Univ of Michigan when missing home. Kainani became the principal musician for a small hula troupe in Colorado and then moved to the Bay Area, where she joined the Academy of Hawaiian Arts (AHA) for hula in 2003. There, when some other dancers expressed interest in learning hawaiian music, she started teaching a hawaiian music ensemble, which became the performing group ‘AHAmele. (“concert” in hawaiian) Kumu Mark Ho’omalu’s philosophy at AHA to “do your own and do it well” is the inspiration for ‘Ahamele’s unique arrangements of beloved hawaiian songs. He honored Kainani with the title of Kumu in 2018.
