Music & Events
at Cafe Zoë
We want Cafe Zoë to be your fun place to come for happy hour and stay for whatever fun event is going on. You can expect Trivia every Thursday night and live music every Friday night on a usual week. Other times, we are hosting fundraisers for local causes, knitting group meet-ups, community meetings, pop-up shops, and more.
We firmly believe that we book some of the best musicians of the Bay Area and beyond. Come see the local and touring acts. The musicians that have performed at the café range from anything to mellow acoustic to fast-paced rock and roll.
We are always looking for new musicians to come perform, please email email@example.com with links to music if you’re interested in booking your band.

Renz® is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist based in the San Francisco Bay area. Renwyck Station is the band that he records and performs under.
His music reflects many influences and his words reflect the images and experiences that we all share. Either through his interpretation of songs written by others or though performance of his original compositions, it is the lyric, the word, the message that is most important. His music is intended to uplift your spirits, relax your mind, and make you smile.
