The Bands!

Achilles Wheel Photo New

Achilles 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.  2015 promises to be a busy year for AW with the release of their third studio recording.  If you love to dance and celebrate life, come see an Achilles Wheel show and make a joyful noise.

 

The Soft Bombs

Offering drivingly danceable rhythms, hard pumping bass, and hypnotically addictive blends of psych, kaleidoscopic electrophonic melodies, The Soft Bombs are at once retro and distinctly forward-looking. The band’s live shows are enhanced by colorful projections and extended dance-improvs that whip the audience into a frenzy.  The Soft Bombs continue to wow audiences up and down the west coast with their unique brand of rock and roll.

 

Scary Little Friends

Based in San Francisco with underlying southern soul roots, strong songwriting is really the bread and butter of Scary Little Friends.  Scary Little Friend’s live shows combine an understated professionalism with raw talent. They connect with their audience the old-fashioned way by offering authentic heartfelt performances that fulfill our desire to connect. No gimmicks, no tricks. Just great songs about what you were thinking but couldn’t say.

PANTyRAID

BUY TICKETS

 

Fresh Bakin’ presents a Halloween event in Nevada city, featuring PANTyRAID, Space Jesus, Pega5u5, and Muppet Punk, Monday, October 31st at the Miners Foundry.  Fresh Bakin’ invites friends to break out their costumes for a special  Halloween event featuring electronic music heavyweights.  After bringing their high-energy, heavy-hitting music to stages around the world, this will be the first time the infamous DJ duo known as PANTyRAID will perform in this area.  Comprised of Ooah, one-third of the global phenomenon known as The Glitch Mob, and dub step producer turned trap aficionado MartyParty, PANTyRAID music exemplifies the evolution of bass music and sets the bar for original music productions in today’s ever evolving electronic music genre.

This one night only event will begin at 6:00 p.m. and we welcome music fans of all ages to attend.  In addition to this star studded music line up, Fresh Bakin’ and Ooze System will host a costume contest and a variety of local artisan vendors.

Fright Night 2017

BUY TICKETS

 

 

Fright Night, Nevada City’s Halloween tradition returns to the Miners Foundry on Saturday, October 28, 2017.  Fright Night 2017 features music by Zepparella with special guests Achilles Wheel, as well as The Novelists and Northern Roots.  Food and drinks are available for purchase.  Zepparella is an all-girl powerhouse from San Francisco, featuring the music of Led Zeppelin.  More than just a tribute band, Zepparella shows replicate the powerful improvisational musical journey for which Led Zeppelin shows were renowned. Local favorites Achilles Wheel is a rock and roll band that blurs the lines between genres and fuses an infectious blend of Roots and World Music Rockadelia.  The Novelists showcase cliffhanger storytelling, multiple lead singers, and signature four-part harmonies.  Dancing concert with limited seating available.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the music begins at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets are $25 in Advance and $30 at the Door.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees may apply.

 

In 9 years as a band, Zepparella has released two live albums and toured throughout the United States opening for the likes of Weezer, Kiss, and Y&T.  Band members Gretchen Menn (guitar), Angeline Saris (bass), Noelle Doughty (vocals), and founding member Clementine (drums) are known internationally for their playing and have graced numerous festival stages, private parties, theatres, and down and dirty rock venues.

How to honor the legacy of a band deemed sacred?  To tread on holy ground is perilous and must be done with the intent and spirit of a disciple.  Pat attention to the intricacies of the magic, explore the far ends of the innovation, strive for ever-growing ability, and let the purity of the love for the music drive it all.  It wasn’t that long ago women rock musicians were a rare breed.  They might sign up front, or as part of a girl group, but women weren’t often seen playing rhythm or lead guitar.  Times have changed.

 

 

The Achilles Wheel sound comes across as both Old School and New School and is riddled with great songwriting. Supporting the benefit of our human condition is foremost in their work. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. The idealism that they embraced as younger men has not diminished in the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live freely and have a good time, and in the end, hopefully matter. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times.

With the release of their third studio recording, ‘Devil In The Yard’, Achilles Wheel is also waving the flag for Ben Jacobs (Poor Man’s Whiskey, Grateful Bluegrass Boys, Rusty Stringfield), who came to the AW studio in Nevada City to record a couple of songs, but after playing on every track he left as the new Achilles Wheel keys man. He joins Jonny Mojo Flores on lead guitar and vocals, Paul Kamm on guitar and vocals, Shelby Snow on bass and vocals, Mark McCartney on drums and vocals and Gary Campus on drums and percussion.

 

An elderly couple stands precariously on the railing of a 17th floor balcony… Two teenagers unknowingly choose a murder scene for their parking date… A young man throws off the shackles of a bullish culture.  These are just a sample of the scenes in which you’ll find yourself immersed when you listen to The Novelists.  Equally comfortable acoustic or electric, The Novelists showcase cliffhanger storytelling, multiple lead singers, and their signature four-part harmonies.

The Novelists have become a mainstay on the West Coast festival, college, and house concert circuits and are planing several national tours throughout 2017.

The Polish Ambassador

BUY TICKETS

 

 

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present The Polish Ambassador and The Diplomatic Scandal on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, with special guest Grandfather Gold.  Pulling from over a decade of musical styles and nuances explored by TPA, combined with the lush instrumentation of 3 seasoned instrumentalists, The Polish Ambassador and The Diplomatic Scandal are closing the gaps between live and electronic music.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.  Standing / dancing show with limited seating.  Tickets are $27 in Advance and $32 at the Door.  Tickets may be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees don’t apply for purchases made by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office.

 

 

After a cornucopia of albums and countless gigs around the world, The Polish Ambassador has docked the mothership outside the embassy; a fitting stop for a Diplomatic Scandal to unfold.  An amalgamation of funky beats, retro synths, and live instrumentation make up the bulk of this controversial saga.  David Sugalski aka The Polish Ambassador first happened across special agent Ryan Herr (guitar, percussion) in 2015 while traveling the high terrain of Colorado.  After a few years of scheming, planning and interstellar travels, the 2 comrades chanced upon special agents Tyson Leonard (violin) and Jesse James (sax and flute).  Before long, the 4 intergalactic men of mystery had synthesized their scandalous affairs into musical form.  Pulling from over a decade of musical styles and nuances explored by TPA, combined with the lush instrumentation of 3 seasoned instrumentalists, The Polish Ambassador and The Diplomatic Scandal are closing the gaps between live and electronic music.

 

Grandfather Gold is a musical journey across the mountains and deserts of our hearts and minds.  A relic from the old west, a 1960’s folk poet, and contemporary singer-songwriter extraordinaire all-in-one, Grandfather Gold kicks down genre barriers and emphatically opens up Jumpsuit Records to new artistic visions.

About

The Polish Ambassador (real name David Sugalski) is raising the bar for what it means to be a professionally touring musician. Sure, the electronic musician lays claim to producing the sweetest beats this side of the Milky Way Galaxy, but the world’s funkiest diplomat is also using his popularity to steer the millennial generation toward a nourishing and sustainable way of relating with art, community and the planet. From birthing the Permaculture Action Movement (a movement where the energy of show/festival goers is catalyzed into community action), to launching a Village Building Convergence in his hometown to creating a program where nutritious beverage options are available at music venues on a routed TPA tour, the ambassador is using his clout to make real, tangible change, and along the way inspiring hundreds of thousands.

Kaminanda

Kaminanda’s ever-evolving sound is a playground of original Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, Psy-Dub, and lush downtempo textures. His music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; a kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and ethereal soundscapes to evoke a deeper and hypnotic experience.

At first breath, The Polish Ambassador was an experiment, David Sugalski’s sound-art passion project that came to life.

An inventive, imaginary character born of humble, humorous beginnings, he found his first audiences through the support of primitive digital radio stations.

Today, TPA is among the premier EDM/live crossover artists in the country with millions of listeners around the world; he’s consistently in-demand at the live music-focused gatherings and boutique electronic festivals from coast to coast.

Founder of independent label Jumpsuit Records, an environmentalist and early progenitor of the permaculture action movement, the world’s funkiest diplomat is here to party with a purpose.

Th’ Losin Streaks

California’s favorite garage-punks Th’ Losin Streaks began their long journey together in 2003 when a group of longtime friends got together after years of watching each other play in different Sacramento groups like The Trouble Makers and Daisy Spot. Obsessed with 1960’s garage bands, the four honed a sound that was both fresh and familiar, and their incendiary live performances generated immediate buzz.

Things happened quickly:  their debut record “Sounds of Violence”, was released in 2004, followed by tours of Europe and the US with invitations to open for legendary acts like The Zombies.  The band and the record collected kudos and built a wide-ranging fanbase that includes The Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt, who proclaimed the group’s “Your Love, Now” as “The Coolest Song in the World (this week)” in his Billboard column and sent the tune into heavy rotation on Sirius’ Underground Garage radio station.  Th’ Losin Streaks’ new album “This Band Will Self-Destruct in T-Minus” was released in 2018 and received rave reviews.

With tour plans cancelled due to 2020, the band used their down time to work on a new record.  Their latest single will be released soon and a third album is on the way.  Th’ Losin Streaks are back and better than ever!

Cherry Rats

Cherry Rats, Nevada City’s heaviest band started from humble beginnings common to Nevada City:  musicians run into each other at breakfast and a band is born.

Guitarist and singer Chris Streng, bassist Art Echternacht, and drummer Ryan Everson christened themselves Cherry Rats, a loose anagram of the names Chris, Ryan, and Art.

The band knew immediately this would be no slacker garage rock affair, they were on a mission to be the loudest, craziest, and most flamboyant hard rock outfit ever to emerge from the Sierra Foothills.

Their double album “Hungry for Distortion / Appetite for Dynamite” will be released on multiple formats in 2022.

Cherry Rats are poised to make heavy metal history with their head banging riffs, propulsive rhythms, and a live show that must be seen to be believed.

Kate X Grace

I’m Kate X Grace.

I started playing and writing music when I was 12.

I enjoy all types of music but Rock, Punk, and Metal are my favorites.

I find them to be the most exciting!

I love the passion and energy in music that performers and audiences create together in the spirit of Rock n’ Roll!
