Event Details

Witty wordplay, clever melodies... the nicest guy to ever pick up an acoustic guitar. LA WEEKLY

If Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, and Regina Spektor were to combine forces, you would have Bobby Jo Valentine. ALEXA SPIELER, A-LIST MUSIC


A concert to benefit InnVision Shelter Network's Hotel de Zink, a rotating nightly homeless shelter in Palo Alto and surrounding communities, and the ENGAGE Service Initiative for youth and young adults.

Partnering with national non-profit causes and churches, Bobby Jo Valentine will be touring across the nation and playing concerts where 100% of the proceeds benefit a non-profit cause that supports the idea of home in various creative and cool ways.


San Francisco-based and Petaluma-native singer-songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine has received numerous accolades and TV and radio appearances for his 2011 debut, including Songwriter of the Year by the West Coast Songwriter's Association. His hard hitting emotional search for A Place to Belong was just a prelude to the hope and confidence the pop/rocker exudes now that, on his second full-length album, he's found a Home.

Produced by Calvin Turnbull (Sheryl Crow, Five For Fighting), Home—an ambitious 13 track set Valentine calls “my first big boy album”—is driven by a mix of stripped down, heartfelt acoustic songs and dynamic full band tracks featuring several talented musicians, including bassist David Hayes (Blondie, Van Morrison) and veteran drummer Dave Tweedie. From the hard driving, sexy “commitment is cool’ rocker “Come Back To Bed” to the universal yearning of the pop-blues influenced title track and the thoughtful, whimsical “Chase Away My Dark,” the songs are filled with optimistic, honest messages about hope and day to day struggles. They roll together like a wave of heartfelt confessionals and anthemic philosophies about life. Valentine explores the tense high wire between light and dark, but doesn’t always wrap things up with a tidy answer.
