In the 1980s and ‘90s, journalist Paul Liberatore’s band, the Liberators, performed at the Marin County Fair—several times on small stages and, finally, as the opening act for Clarence Clemons and his Red Bank Rockers on the Fair’s main stage. Liberatore revived the band in 2014 with guitarist-singer Jimmy Dillon, keyboardist-singer Austin deLone, drummer Kevin Hayes and bassist Erik McCann. The musicians continued to play occasionally, including gigs at Rancho Nicasio, Sweetwater Music Hall and other venues. With the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, Liberatore and Dillon began putting together multi-media show celebrating what became known worldwide in 1967 as the San Francisco Sound. Fairgoers will hear contemporary interpretations of classic songs by the Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and other bands from the psychedelic era.
