Achilles Wheel is a California based rock and roll band that blurs the lines between genres and fuses and infectious blend of Roots and World Music, Rockadelia. Their sound comes across as both Old School and New School, and is riddled with great songwriting. Achilles Wheel places supporting the benefit of the human condition foremost in their work. The idealism the band embraced as younger men has not diminished in the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live freely, have a good time, and hopefully matter in the end. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times.
After a decade performing all original material during the heyday of San Francisco’s life music scene, Boca do Rio has evolved into a multi-layered electro-funk party boat with a sound that is fluid and edgy, adaptable and free.
Born of the mixing of waters of Brazil and the San Francisco Bay, Boca do Rio has created musica organica – music that developed through the rhythm of living and working between the Americas.
