Summer Nights

Join Miners Foundry and KVMR in partnership to present the Spring Street Stage! Full bar outdoors and music all evening.

The Summer Nights in Nevada City celebration, a street festival of art and music, has been an annual tradition in this quaint, scenic, historic – and sometimes quirky – community, for over thirty years. The 2022 event takes place on three Wednesday evenings, July 13, 20, and 27, 2022.

During Summer Nights, Nevada City’s landmark historic district is closed to motorized traffic and filled with arts, crafts, classic cars, food, drink and music. Leading Sierra foothills musicians perform on outdoor stages throughout the downtown area. Hours are 6-9:30 p.m. There is no admission charge.

July 13 | Heifer Belles

The Heifer Belles began as friends getting together for some casual picking and singing.  The result, a blend of back porch Americana, took them out of the living room and into the world to perform their music.  The groups songs range from tongue-in-cheek to heartfelt to socially insightful, a gamut of the human experience in today’s world.  The band, Juliet Gobert, song writer and lead singer plays rhythm guitar alongside Toni Valenta, of the SoCal band Belly Love, who brings her impressive bass and guitar skills in addition to beautiful harmony vocals and,  Nici Van Kreidt, on violin, classically trained from the age of 7 yrs, currently a highly sought after violin teacher, whose influences range from classical to Grateful dead to Django Reinhardt gypsy jazz, rounds out the ensemble with her impeccable style.

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, Gary Campus, Rob Kopp, Peter Wilson, Jenn Knapp, Glenn Tucker, and Lucas Weber.

 

The country/rock/R&B sound of BuckStar grew out of the regional mix-and-match music scene and features husband/wife duo Jenn Knapp and Rob Kopp, guitar ace Tom Menig, his brother Eric Menig and keyboard player Lucas Weber.  At the heart of their music are Alleghany native Jenn Knapp’s original songs.  Knapp began writing songs following the death of a close friend.  She promised to learn guitar and was soon picking out chords on a guitar inherited from her grandfather.  She and drummer Rob Kopp’s band Big Picture featured their songs.  That band evolved in the Cheatin’ Buzzies – a mainstay on the regional music scene for over a decade with three albums and what Jenn describes as “a pretty substantial body of work”.  Much of their recording was accomplished at guitarist Tom Menig’s Silver Maple Studio with Menig contributing guitar and pedal steel to their recordings.  Kopp and the Menig brothers are also members of the Grateful Dead tribute band, The Deadbeats, with a steady schedule and strong draw on the west coast.  BuckStar came to being in 2014 with their self-titled CD release in 2015.  They were featured at the California WorldFest, played honky tonks from Joshua Tree to Alleghany, and are currently putting the finishing touches on their second CD.
