The May Cafe features three acts: Carl Gold, Michael Melia, and the Western Avenue String Band.

• Carl Gold plays harmonica and guitar to accompany his vocals. His covers Bob Dylan, Santana, Booker T and the MGs, and the Moody Blues. Carl was one of the Acoustic Cafe founders. Thanks Carl!
• Michael Melia is a singer/songwriter who draws from a folk-rock tradition in his original work. He does tunes by Paul Simon, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Cat Stevens, and Gordon Lightfoot in a distinctive style that involves folk finger-picking on an acoustic 12-string guitar.
• Western Avenue String Band was formed to make music rooted in the American bluegrass and folk traditions. The band plays a variety of original songs, bluegrass standards, and covers of the Band, David Grisman, Norman Blake, and Gillian Welch. The band is working on its first CD of original music.
