Past Events


The Spouse Whisperer

Spend an evening with comedian Mark Cordes as he takes an hilarious peek into the world of relationships.  The journey starts with "love at first sight" til "death do us part" and all of the funny stuff that happens in between. Always charming and congenial, the Spouse Whisperer entertains with acerbic observations and a great comedic rapport with his audience.


New Year’s State of Mind

What are you doing New Year’s Eve? That always seems to be the big question as the year nears its close. How about spending it in New York City without the expense of leaving town? Tom Reardon and a group of Bay Area theater luminaries are bringing the buzz and energy of New York City to Castro Valley in a musical celebration of the Big Apple — a Broadway stage, a night club, and a piano bar all in one! Six artists will explore New York State of Mind. There will be songs from your favorite Broadway musicals and pop favorites including Hamilton and West Side Story.


Super Diamond

SUPER DIAMOND delivers a glittering show performing Neil Diamond’s power ballads and up-tempo hits of the last 30 years. Leader Randy Cordero (aka Surreal Neil) describes the band as “Neil Diamond on steroids.” Not just a cover band, SUPER DIAMOND create their own version of Diamond’s songs incorporating contemporary riffs by Guns N’Roses, Kiss and AC/DC. Break out your vintage sequins, bell bottoms, platform shoes and party on!


Wake the Dead

Wake the Dead is the world’s only Celtic All-Star Grateful Dead Jam Band.  This hot Northern California group has been blending Celtic traditional music and the songs of the Grateful Dead since 2000, pleasing Deadheads and Celtoids alike!  If you can’t quite imagine how this works, come and find out.


The Filharmonic

“Fresh, fun, adorable” describe the six young Filipino American men who are The Filharmonic singing at the Castro Valley Center for the Arts, Saturday, August 19 at 7:30 pm. Singer, songwriter and power-house vocalist Mario Jose will join The FIlharmonic on stage along with Castro Valley High School’s own award winning Madrigals. CVAF President Mary Ann DeGrazia promises, “This will be an amazing night of a capella music—one you won’t want to miss.”
