The Mateel Community Center is experiencing financial hardship and is seeking the community’s support in keeping their doors open. At an open forum in September, the Mateel shared information regarding a financial shortfall after the recent Reggae on the River festival, a key source of annual revenue for the center. A 501-c3 non-profit, the Mateel offers diverse arts, social services and youth programming that is vital to this rural Northern California community. From hosting International music superstars and political forums, to local theatre and dance performances, to presenting seasonal festivals, the Mateel adds to the fabric of the vibrant region. Donations will be accepted, partial proceeds from the cover charge will be donated to the Mateel and Lifetime Memberships will be available at the event.

For North Coast Doors fans, this event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear guitarist Robby Krieger,  the only living member of the seminal rock band the Doors that is still performing today who Rolling Stone called “one of the greatest guitarists of all time”. Krieger wrote the Doors’ hits “Love Me Two Times,” “Touch Me, “Love Her Madly” and “Light My Fire.” The Robby Krieger Band includes an all star cast of top notch musicians including bassist Phil Chen (Jeff Beck), Ty Dennis on drums, and Waylon Krieger on vocals. A limited number of special VIP meet and greet tickets are available. offering music fans an opportunity to meet a true rock legend.

Mateel Forever also features Cold Blue Water, one of Humboldt’s premiere Blues, Rock, Jazz, and Jam Bands who blend classic covers with well-crafted originals that deliver a powerful punch of authenticity. The evening will close with  a dance party with music by DJ Marjo Lak (Butter Music Brazil/Deep Groove Society) and special guest DJ Dragonfly. DJ Marjo Lak is fresh off of her summer tour in Italy and playing many of the Summer Festivals in US, including Enchanted Forest, Northern Nights and the Oregon Eclipse Gathering. DJ Dragonfly is known for his high energetic music, playing trap-hoppy vibes, chillbass and sweetly glitchy groove influenced by sitars, ouds, sarangis, and percussion.

From 6:30-8pm, the ICFA (International Cannabis Farmers Association) will host a Cannabis Legalization and Awareness Forum and Q&A about the new legislation coming in 2018.
