Few things in life are as varied and intriguing as band names. Some make you smile, others warrant a head scratch, and a few make you feel downright queasy.
The Sunnyvale Stringband has a name that makes us think of lying on a picnic blanket in a sprawling open field with nothing but crystal-blue sky and a light breeze. Which all sounds pretty good right about now.
You can catch the Americana-bluegrass group tonight at the relaxed-yet-swanky Pengilly's Saloon. The show starts at 8 p.m. and this dose of musical sunny sky won't cost you a dime. If you miss the group tonight, or have so much fun you want to go back, it will play again Sunday, Feb. 26, same place and time.
