Gig Schedule

Severe Pleasure 2016 Performance Schedule:

We are having a great time playing for all our fans so far this year, and hope you will join us for some similar mischief in the months ahead. We have some great gigs lined up and as the dates get closer we will be sending out e-mail reminders.

Our 2016 calendar looks like this (in fact, it is this):

Friday, February 5: The Boulevard Tavern again. Why? Because that is a place peopled with friendly patrons and bartendresses, and they LOVE to dance there. Mr. David ("Rapid Rod") Rodrigues will sit in on rhythm guitar for this gig and will favor us with a few vocals as well. We will be adding a bunch of new tunes from the Rolling Stones, Ataris, Queen, and The Doors so come by and check us out!

Friday, March 4: Guess: You got it! The Boulevard Tavern again. We love playing there! This is a unique gig celebrating March birthdays, and also will feature a great band, The Distractions, which we will good naturedly battle for supremacy of the ear drums.

Friday, March 11: Our permanent home, The Boulevard Tavern! It will be our regular award-winning* compliment of musicians with Bill "Machine Gunn" Gunn on drums. Don't miss this!     *Winner of the 2016 "Wives Choice" award. Thanks, wives!

Friday, April 15: Another fab Boulevard Tavern gig. Starts at 9:00 as usual, and runs 'till media.noche.

Friday, May 20: Boulevard Tavern. RESCHEDULED TO JULY 8

Friday, June 10, TGIF at Rinconada Hills Condominium Association Clubhouse: Now this is a great lazy summer's afternoon event to end your week on! Our 3rd year playing this fun gig. It's a pot luck so bring a dish to share and whatever you like to drink. Watch your friends and neighbors dance and ridicule their archaic and clumsy dancing styles. A reprise of last year's wildly successful affaire. We will again be playing from 5:30 'till 8:00. Public enthusiastically invited. $10 per person donation.

Friday, June 24, Back to the Boulevard Tavern for more debauchery!

Friday, July 8: Yes!!! The Boulevard Tavern again! So, you ask, aren't they getting tired of us playing this beloved dive bar? Of course not! Otherwise, why would they keep hiring us? We do not come cheap, at least as musicians go. So why not join the revelry and tear it up at the BT with us? See you there!

Friday, July 15, Return to the Boulevard Tavern, this time to clean up the mess from last time.

Wednesday, August 11: La Rinconada  Country Club, Los Gatos, a repeat of our gigs spanning the previous 5 years. So sorry, but this is a Members' invitational event.

Labor Day weekend - Severe Pleasure hits the road, playing a wedding celebration in Mendocino for a delightful young couple. Any volunteers to be our Roadies?

October ____:
A great gig for a restaurant grand opening anniversary in Danville. Date and particulars to follow.

Thursday, November 3 - We will be playing the ever popular Black Cat Hat Shop Customer Appreciation Day again. The widely esteemed establishment was recently voted the outstanding shop in downtown Los Gatos (I think by the owner's boyfriend - or it could have been her daughter. But no matter; it's a great shop)!

Additional dates to be announced as they are firmed up.

We love playing birthdays, corporate events and weddings, so call Dave for your Big Bash. YOU WILL REALLY LIKE US! 408-871-9055; 408-888-3362;
