Sundance Saloon Featured In SF Chronicle Article

Sundance Saloon

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Tony Bravo came to Sundance Saloon to research his article about the recent coming out of country singers Ty Herndon and Billy Gilman.

“For a reaction to Herndon and Gilman’s news, we tugged up our boots and ventured to Sunday night’s Sundance Saloon, the last regular, mixed LGBT country-western dance party in the Bay Area, held at Space 550 in the Bayview district.” (photo: Scott Strazzante / The Chronicle)

Includes quotes from Randy Pocius, John Hoffman, Rachel Hoobing, Wilson Hardcastle and Michael Metzger.

Sundance Saloon Volunteers Needed

Sundance Saloon volunteerDid you know that Sundance Saloon is run entirely by volunteers? The managers, front door and coat-check staff, set-up crew, instructors, and DJs all donate their time to create this unique institution. It is the cumulative effort of dozens of volunteers that keep Sundance Saloon thriving and make it such a special place.

We are continuing to recruit new volunteers for the front door and coat-check, especially those who can commit to serving one hour a month on Sundays. If you can help us out, contact
