Bay Stage performers also include:
Hypnotist Steve Bayner, who performs all over the United States, as well as abroad. Show times vary. Check the daily schedule.
The Voltones will perform 5 p.m. Wednesday. The band features homegrown talent and combines rock with reverb-drenched west coast surf classics.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, The Best Intentions will perform their repertoire of Motown classics. The group showcases six men with many years of combined experience in the music and entertainment industry, performing with big name stars and at venues all across the U.S. and Canada.
Foreign Frontiers is slated to bring their indie tunes to the Bay Stage at 3 p.m. Aug. 1. The band, who met when they were each home schooled, debuted their first original song, “Rouge,” to a group of unsuspecting home schoolers. This year, the members are looking forward to recording their first EP.
Berkeley natives, Thirstbusters, take the stage to perform their original pop-rock hits at noon Aug. 2. They recorded their first album as a one-room live recording with no producer. The music video for their single, “So There,” garnered the attention of Disney, who aired it on its channel.
At 1 p.m. Aug. 3, gospel artist Raymond Coats brings his soulful sounds to the fair.
He began his career at the age of 12 singing bass/baritone in his church choir with The Coats Singers in San Francisco. He has been the front man for various bands including Raw Soul, The Elegants, The Performers, Cordial, Finesse and Soul Commitment.
