Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Event Guide
Backstage pass to your San Jose Race Weekend!
EVENT GUIDE OCTOBER 7, 2012 SJ_12_Event_Guide.indd 1 9/20/12 3:50 PM Welcome... 22 to the one half marathon you won’t want to end. A race so rock ‘n’ roll, the mile markers are rock bands. Because what’s the point of running if you just want it to end? Here, you might not break the tape, but the podium isn’t the point. 28 - Life is a journey and running should be a celebration.

Since picking up a guitar at the age of 6, Matt found his passion and has enticed everyone who has listened. He has built an incredibly loyal fan base due to extensive touring filled with captivating performances. His blend of introspective folk-rock music and standup comedy provide a unique yet entertaining experience. During his time in college in Claremont, Calif., Matt recorded his first album, “Please,” in 1993. He went on to record several other albums over the next decade, with many of his songs featured on network TV shows such as “Scrubs,” “Tarzan” and “One Tree Hill.” His eighth album, “Some Mad Hope,” was his most popular to date, and debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at No. 60. It would remain on the charts for 34 weeks, thanks to several hit songs that put his name and album on the map. His song “Come On Get Higher” went platinum with 1.3 million single sales, and peaked at No. 3 on Mainstream AC. His most recent album, “Modern Love,” released in June 2011, has received similar acclaim from fans, debuting at No. 17. He opened for the 2012 Kelly Clarkson tour, in-between a solo tour, and even provided a serenade on ABC’s hit show “The Bachelor.” “It’s a powerful record. We modeled its production and sound after those great 80s records; when you listen to them, they sound timeless, as if they are from the future. That was the idea behind the record, that the song is the beating heart and the production hangs on it,” Matt says. Celebrate the completion of the Half and Mini Marathons with family, friends, fans, and Matt Nathanson as he welcomes and congratulates the runners with a rockin’ headliner concert!

The band consists of seven very talented and professional musicians that truly take their craft to the next level. This band is very unique in its sound with a variety of instruments, including keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, congas and percussion along with three vocalists. Rory Seldon, who is on keyboards and vocals, is the founder of this group and has been in the music industry of over 20 years. 22 SJ_12_Event_Guide.indd 22 Who says the good old days of the blues are over? Tip of the Top is a San Francisco Bay Area band that has taken the blues scene by storm since 2009. The band’s musical style is reminiscent of the 1950s and their live show delivers all the primitive pulsating rhythms, repetitive chord changes and gritty amplification that defines early American Rock ‘n’ Roll. But these bluesmen are not mere imitators. They feel this music to their core. They represent it with 100% authentic personal expression and deliver it with emotionally charged energy. Alluette Alluette, a four-some from very different musical backgrounds, was formed four years ago. The band consistently plays shows all over the East San Francisco Bay Area and its instrumentation is very eclectic with sounds of blues, funk and hip-hop mixed with hard Rock and plenty of surprises. Each member brings plenty of great ideas for new material they are constantly creating. The band just released its first album, “Get Some,” and is currently working on another album and is setting up shows for a small tour. 9/20/12 3:50 PM EVENT GUIDE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SAN JOSE™ HALF MARATHON | 2012 MOVINGCOMFORT.COM SJ_12_Event_Guide.indd 23 23 9/20/12 3:50 PM EVENT GUIDE COURSE BANDS LIST 24 SITE LOCATION BAND START END B01 San Jose City Hall Plaza Independence High School 8:00 AM 8:25 AM B02 11th & Jackson St / In the street on northwest corner David Brookings & The Average Lookings 8:05 AM 8:45 AM B03 Chrisâ€™ Service Center / 4th St. & Taylor St. Neverwonder 8:10 AM 9:00 AM B04 Santa Clara County Credit Union / 2nd St. & Heading St. Alluette (is a Pisces) 8:10 AM 9:10 AM B05 San Pedro & Basset St / In Street on northwest Corner Gravity Hill (Formerly Awesome Sauce) 8:15 AM 9:25 AM B06 HP Pavilion / Plaza on Santa Clara Btw Autumn & Montgomery SixString 8:20 AM 9:45 AM B07 Farmers Ins. / 1654 The Alameda St. VitalSign 8:25 AM 10:05 AM B08 In Grass Median on University Ave at Dana Ave TBD 8:30 AM 10:20 AM B09 Newhall St & Bascom Ave (Washington) Pullman Standard 8:35 AM 10:40 AM B09 Newhall St & Bascom Ave (Washington) Streetside Vinyl B10 Cory School / Monroe St. & Kenwood Ave. Rockin Blues Express 8:40 AM 10:50 AM B10 Cory School / Monroe St. & Kenwood Ave. The Amy Gass Band DJ San Jose Municiple Rose Garden / Emory & Garden Tony DJ Noble Cardoso 8:45 AM 11:05 AM B11 Lincoln High School / Dana Ave. & Brooklyn Ave. Metal Etch 8:45 AM 11:15 AM B11 Lincoln High School / Dana Ave. & Brooklyn Ave. TBD B12 Herbert Hoover High School / Park Ave. & Naglee Ave. Hoover Middle School 8:50 AM 11:50 AM B12 Herbert Hoover High School / Park Ave. & Naglee Ave. Hoover Middle School B13 YMCA / 1717 The Alameda Long Train Runnin 8:55 AM 11:45 AM B13 YMCA / 1717 The Alameda South 46 Band B14 Babes Auto / The Alameda & Wilson Ave. METAL SHOP 9:00 AM 12:00 PM B14 Babes Auto / The Alameda & Wilson Ave. Stealing 3rd Band B15 Almaden & San Fernando St. / In Street on Southwest Corner Rory Seldon with InnerSession 8:15 AM 12:15 PM B15 Almaden & San Fernando St. / In Street on Southwest Corner Tip of the Top *ALL BANDS AND LOCATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE SJ_12_Event_Guide.indd 24 9/20/12 3:50 PM EVENT GUIDE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SAN JOSE™ HALF MARATHON | 2012 ...is r! e n t r a p ing n i a r t r u yo 25 SJ_12_Event_Guide.indd 25 9/20/12 3:50 PM EVENT GUIDE TM REFUEL WITH CHOCOLATE MILK ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SAN JOSE™ HALF MARATHON | 2012 Endurance athletes, trainers and sports nutrition experts all know the importance of an athlete’s after.

Whether this is your first or fiftieth race, congratulations on your commitment to fitness and a healthy lifestyle! Whether you choose to run, walk or just rock, the following tips will help to ensure you have a fun and safe Rock ‘n’ Roll experience. ADVICE FROM THE ROCK 'N' ROLL MEDICAL DIRECTOR, P.Z. PEARCE, M.D. 1 2 3 4 TRAIN It’s too late to start now, but you need to respect the distance you’ve chosen to walk or run. There are many different training programs available to you. Be sure you chose one that had you complete at least 2/3 of the race distance several times during your training period. If not, slow down and participate at a comfortable pace. HYDRATE If you have not calculated your fluid needs for this race, there are two strategies which will ensure you don’t under or over-hydrate. The easiest is to only drink when you are thirsty. If you want to be a little more scientific, limit fluid intake to 4-8 oz of sports drink every 20 minutes For more information on hydration strategies, please visit our website.. SALT Losing salt through sweating and complex hormone changes during exercise can result in lowering your serum [blood] sodium level. This will not only affect your performance, it may lead to muscle cramping, headache, dizziness and confusion. Have some sports drink along the course to quench your thirst, or follow your pre-planned schedule. PLEASE Fill out the medical information section on the back of your bib number. While serious medical problems are quite rare, knowing any medical problems you have, medications you are taking or allergies to medications is extremely helpful to our Medical Volunteers. Our goal is to treat all of our athletes like Rock Stars! If you have questions, please visit RNRSportsMedicine.com, stop by the Rock ‘n’ Roll Sports Medicine Team booth at the Expo or visit one of our Medical Tents on race day. We would be happy to assist you. Have fun, be smart, and stay within your limits.
