Special Events


Red Umbrellas in cooperation with the San Francisco Rec & Park Department

are happy to invite Musicians once a month to our Alvord Lake Art Show.

Our hope is to enliven this wonderful little oasis in the Golden Gate Park not just with Art

but also with talented Musicians.

Todd Thölke

Blues & Jazz Vocalist/Guitarist

West Coast Soul Music

Todd Thölke is a passionate and powerful vocalist/guitarist with over 25 years of professional experience around the United States and primarily the San Francisco Bay area. Todd prides himself on his soulful, unique expression of old blues standards by artists like Albert King, B.B.King, and Ray Charles and jazz standards by singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong. Todd not only loves to sing and play those blues and jazz favorites, but he also loves to get the crowd moving and dancing to New Orleans second-line jazz and classic R&B hits by artists like James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Etta James.  He considers the audience participation on the dance floor to be a crucial part of the fun. There is nothing Todd loves more than to entertain an audience and to leave them satisfied with his soulful interpretation of blues and jazz classics.
