Kerouac is a rockin’ rhythm-and-blues band that celebrates the best songs of such musical legends as Tina Turner, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Creedance Clearwater, and the Rolling Stones, among others. Kerouac blends Marie-Louise’s driving vocals with a rousing rhythm section and inspired instrumentals. We’re not kidding when we say our library “rocks”––so come on over and boogie on down!

Between dances, you can enjoy sparkling wine and other libations and snacks. Kids are welcome but may wish to join other kids in the Children’s Room. While the event is free, a suggested donation of $25 per person will help defray the cost of this program offered to the community by the Friends & Foundation, St. Helena Public Library.
