Now, in the market's 'teen' section (read: behind City Hall) the market's "Unplugged" music series showcases the music stylings of Sonoma's younger residents. But, these bands aren't members of your average tone-deaf garage-band set - these pint-sized musicians can really carry a tune.

Check out the video at right for a glimpse of the band's last performance.
