Michael Foley is an artist from the San Francisco bay area whose works show nationally and internationally. First discovered by scientists after the great quake of 1906. Believed to be the cause of the catastrophe it was decided that he would be placed deep in the arctic sea to be forgotten. Seventy-Two years later he resurfaced and returned to California to exact his revenge on civilization through the use of art and his poorly scripted interpreted dance and slam poetry.

Gianfranco & Friends – It all started for the love of the accordion sound and the passion of meeting the very friendly local musicians. Gianfranco had courage to ask them, one at a time, to do some notes together. The first he had asked was Kate and the answer was a curious: “Marimba and accordion? Yes…When?…Where?”. A few weeks later he asked Jessica, and the answer was just lovely: “Piano and accordion?…Do they have a piano there?…OK…When?”. Well…..We did our first notes at the CaffÃ© Trieste and I continue to do notes at the caffÃ© every second Friday of the month with all my friends musicians. That’s how “Gianfranco and Friends” came alive around San Jose.
