In 2004 a group of progressive lawyers got together and formed a R&B band called DAWG-Definitely Aging With (or without) Grace. We thought the civil rights community needed to just have fun-no speeches/no causes just Shut Up and Dance. In 2017, the group officially adopted the band name The Coolerators and performed in the spring of 2018 to bring a much needed relief to the Civil Rights community following the despair of the 2016 presidential election. The Coolerators will gather again in 2019 at another Shut Up and Dance party to once again create a positive venue for a great musical time to encourage all in attendance to dance the night away.

The members of The Coolerators include: Eva Paterson, President of the Equal Justice Society on vocals; lawyer Elizabeth Cabraser on drums, Assemblyman David Chiu on violin; developer and Presidio Trust president Paula Collins and employment lawyer Cheryl Stevens on vocals, mediator and labor arbitrator Bob Hirsch on guitar; Alameda County Superior Court Judge Brad Seligman on guitar, harmonica and vocals; UCSF law professor Bill Hing on base guitar and San Francisco EEOC director Bill Tamayo on keyboards and accordion.
