Second Wind


Second Wind is an acoustical band based in Long Beach, California.   The blending of acoustic guitar, accordion, mandolin, bass, percussion, and sometimes banjo and harmonica, provides a truly unique sound that invites a diverse musical repertoire.  Along with original material, their music bridges folk, bluegrass, country, jazz, pop, and French songs which are familiar to most American audiences. From the Beatles' classic tune "Your Mother Should Know", Second Wind established its by-line: Songs Your Mother Should Know.  The band has played diverse events and venues in Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, and Santa Barbara counties. Notably, the band performed at the Santa Barbara French Festival for several years prior to COVID-19, and at Le Cosy Montparnasse in Paris, France. Band members are Marc and Pattie Davidson, Dave Noferi, and Tom Gallo.

Hi Marc,Many thanks to you and the other members of “Second Wind” for your wonderful performance at the OLLI Volunteer Luncheon yesterday.  Every number you did was amazingly appropriate to the occasion and the audience.  You got us up and moving around and singing and very happy.  I look forward to hearing you perform again and, if it is alright with you, would recommend you for other events.Karin
