Press Kit


Sweet City Blues teams up monster guitarist/ saxophonist Paul Branin, vocalist Donna Spitzer and a host of accomplished Bay Area musicians to bring to the stage an eclectic and joyful repertoire of Blues and Rock.

Sweet City Blues offers fair goers and club dancers:

  • the gritty blues of Stevie Ray Vaughn
  • female vocals ala Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi
  • lively New Orleans second line tunes
  • covers from Little Feat, Jimi Hendrix, Blind Faith and other blues/rock crossover bands.

Paul Branin has worked and toured with Levon Helm and backed up Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Rick Danko and Garth Hudson of The Band, jazz legends Jimmy McGriff, Hank Crawford, and Jack DeJonette. Paul wows his crowds with jaw-dropping solos to rival that of the best guitarists of our time.

Following engagements at The Hotel Alpha Playboy Club in Japan, Donna Spitzer has appeared locally at the The Starlite Room of The Sir Francis Drake Hotel, at The Terrace Bar/Claremont Hotel, The Mill Valley and Sausalito Art Fairs, Jazz at Pearl’s, Harry’s, 19 Broadway, The Ritz Carlton, and more. She has entertained for many major corporate affairs, fundraisers, country club functions and galas in a career spanning three decades.
