Transit of Venus is an acoustic quartet born in Oakland. We play what moves us – be it bluegrass, soul, or cross-generational pop. Our simple line-up features mandolinist Zac Matthews (co-founder of Hot Buttered Rum), Jordan Klein on banjo, soulful stand-up bassist Andrew Thomas, and Mike Sinclaire on the Martin dreadnought guitar.

Thanks to Robert Capra for the above photos from Bull Valley Roadhouse on their third anniversary shindig. Port Costa is a magical wormhole, a place lost in time and space, and we love it!
