The onstage chemistry of Hot Buttered Rum fuels the love fest that is a live Butter show. Rooted in the trajectory of West Coast bluegrass, Hot Buttered Rum plays what has been described as California’s own acoustic music. It’s a sound that’s tough to describe and easy to love, and has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country. At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of old friends. The band was conceived on a backpacking trip of high school and college buddies in the High Sierra. What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands.
The Achilles Wheel Trio features Paul Kamm, Shelby Snow, and Jonny Mojo, singer/songwriters and frontmen of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel. As trio they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence to a quieter place, combining a bit of Country and Bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. But it’s the infectious quality of their songwriting that really shines in this setting, and the diverse nature of it as well.
