Touring is tough, if you are in a band you already know that. Art Boutiki’s is trying out an Adopt a Band program. The bands and musicians listed below are all from outside of the San Jose area and, more than likely, have a limited draw. Check them out and if you are a San Jose band that might be willing to play with one of them, drop me a line at and let us know.

Keep in mind that even if you are from Santa Cruz, San Francisco or Oakland, Art Boutiki will consider you a touring band.

Playing with a touring band and helping them get some exposure can pay off when YOU decide to go on tour.
