Featured Bands

The AscendersThe Ascenders are a multi-genre, multi-generational band from Chico, CA, playing music spanning from original material, RnB, rock n roll and Grateful Dead and upholding the majesty of music through jamming, shredding and experimental projects.






Grateful Bluegrass BoysGrateful Bluegrass Boys are a string band playing traditional Bluegrass versions of Classic Rock favorites from the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Eagles, Rolling Stones and more.

These songs, combined with classic Bluegrass and Country tunes, consistently have audiences singing and dancing along the whole show.






Achilles Wheel Photo NewAchilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World music/Rock and Roll band from Northern California, featuring award winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and more drums than you can shake a stick at.  The quality of the band’s songwriting combined with stunning musicianship earned them spots at last year’s California Worldfest, The Strawberry Music festival, The Redwood Mountain Faire, The Redwood Ramble, Dead On The Creek, Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween and a sold out show at Sierra Nevada Big Room in Chico, California.  If you love to dance and celebrate life, come see an Achilles Wheel show and make a joyful noise.




The DeadbeatsThe 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, Paul, and Gary have remained the core of the band, providing a solid continuity to the Deadbeat sound.
