Music in Novato

Novato has a rich musical heritage. In the Summer of Love, Olompali Park was the Bay Area getaway for bands like the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane. Today, venues like the HopMonk Tavern, Rickey's and Finnegan's Marin make Novato a great destination for live music lovers.

Music lovers have always enjoyed the beautiful natural surroundings of Novato. In the 1960's, bands like the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and the Jefferson Airplane flocked to Rancho Olompali—now Olompali State Park—while David Crosby put the tree in his Novato backyard on the iconic Déjà Vu album sleeve.
