The Deadbeats

The 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.

If you love to dance and celebrate life, come see Achilles Wheel and make a joyful noise.

Truth or Dare Productions

Truth or Dare is the result of countless hours of co-creative effort from its founders and co-producers, Cybil Unrest and Nick Fedoroff. The production duo creates memorable events with an emphasis on burlesque, body positivity, consent culture, safe spaces for entertainers and audiences, and maximum entertainment! You can see their monthly burlesque series at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City as well as pop-up events at venues in cities over California.

Cybil Unrest has been gracing the stage for over a decade with her always clever, sometimes comedic, burlesque performances. A crowd favorite, Cybil is also Ultimate Reveal 2018’s crown winner. Seeing the need for more burlesque in the world, Cybil not only decided to produce shows under Truth or Dare Productions, but also founded Cybil Unrest’s School of Undress to send a whole new crop of fresh faced tassel twirling burlesque artists to the stage.

Nick Fedoroff comes from the world of magicians. From coast to coast and country to country, Nick has been dazzling audiences with his elegant, witty, and always funny stage performances for nearly two decades. Working mostly with corporations, such as Samsung, Google, Apple, Salesforce, and more, Nick has made a career of making what would be otherwise very boring and stuffy business into engaging and energizing events.
With the production expertise and performance experience needed to make Truth or Dare Productions come to life, Nick and Cybil teamed up in 2013 to make their burlesque dreams come true. Truth or Dare Productions has since moved on to producing other events from Rocky Horror Picture Show with a full shadow cast to late-night dance parties that rage until sunrise, from fully online Covid-Lockdown Live(ish) Streams to fundraisers for natural disasters.

 

 

Sailor Beast

Sailor Beast is a multi genre music producer with an emphasis on tribal and experimental music.  In 2018 she released her first  tracks, leading not only the music production, but also the creative direction for her music videos.

Moreover, Sailor is at the charge for giving voice to women in the music industry. Prominently in the realms of DJ’ing and music production.  Consequently, you can find Sailor playing at festivals in the US and abroad, local club nights, and renegades, enveloping dancers with her warrior energy and deep tribal rooted sonic vibe.
