Deadbeats formed during the Summer of 1994 on the notion they could pull off some reasonable Grateful Dead covers. Soon it was apparent the band was on to something, a certain indefinable sound and feel that really captures the essence of a Dead show. Though band members have come and gone over the years, Tom and Gary have remained the core of the band, providing a solid continuity to the Deadbeat sound. The current Deadbeats line up includes Tom Menig, Eric Menig, Rob Kopp, Peter Wilson, Jenn Knapp, Glenn Tucker, and Lucas Weber.
Karen Woerner and Cassidy Joy began singing and playing together as a team back in 2015.
Brought together by their mutual taste in musical genres and shared love of 60’s and 70’s pioneers, they have performed with a variety of backing musicians and guest artists for the past two years in Northern California. Both women starred in the highly regarded showcase “Simple Dreams: The Very Best Of Linda Ronstadt,” which was directed and produced by Joy in November of 2016.
Woerner & Joy continue to captivate audiences with their dynamic and ethereal harmonies, their charming stage manner, and their versatile, multigenre obscure and rare song choices. The girls write their own music, as well as cover a variety of traditional music from Europe and America, and both vintage and modern classics from songwriters in Folk, Classic Rock, Country, Americana, and Bluegrass.
Their intimate, acoustic settings, backstories and chemistry together provide a rare and delightful experience for music lovers of all ages and backgrounds.
