Achilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World music / Rock and Roll band featuring award winning songwriting, numerous stringed instruments, and more drums than you can believe. The fiery epicenter of the Achilles Wheel sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass, and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals. Their debut CD 13 Hours was recently recorded at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City.
The Fall Risk sound is infectious Americana folk-rock with enough groove to get you up and moving.The seven member band is loaded with talented players who consistently elevate Pehrson’s journeyman songwriting. The Fall Risk is the brainchild of Furthur vocalist and Box Set front man, Jeff Pehrson. A San Francisco based band, The Fall Risk encompasses the traditions of Bay Area music of the past, while helping to shape its future.
