The DeadbeatsThe 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.

 

AchillesWheel_printAchilles Wheel is a high energy Roots & World Music / Rock & Roll band, featuring award winning songwriting, numerous stringed instruments, and more drums than you can shake a stick at.  The fiery epicenter of the Achilles Wheel sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, surrounded by Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass, and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals.

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

 The Bands

 

Deadbeats

The Deadbeats get that music is best live.

The band made their debut at Nevada City’s renowned Mad Dogs and Englishmen Pub on August 4, 1994 and immediately knew they were on to something – a certain indefinable sound and feel that captures the essence of a Grateful Dead concert.

Over the years band members have rotated but the core group continues with great shows and big crowds.

The current lineup includes Tom Menig, Gary Campus, Eric Menig, Rob Kopp, Glenn Tucker, Peter Wilson, and Jenn Knapp.

The Deadbeats play the Dead’s songbook with a balance of improvisation and honoring the song.

Wolf Jett

The Wolf Jett sound will make you dance, sing, and possibly even howl with roots that run deep into the soul and help you heal from the heaviness of life.

It’s a sound celebrating perserverance, infusing folk, blues, americana, and soul into what can only be described as “Cosmic Mountain Music”.

Frontman Chris Jones (Scary Little Friends) was born in the south and raised in California and his songs combine the best of both worlds to create a vibe that is fresh, but immediately familiar to a broad audience. He is joined by long-time musical collaborator Jon Payne on drums, Jeff Kissell on bass, and Will Fourt on dobro, guitar, and pedal steel.

Kyle Ledson & Friends

Kyle Ledson grew up in the Grass Valley area playing mandolin and guitar, particularly Jamgrass and Psychedelic Folk.

His new album “Left It All Behind” features his original music along with members of Yonder Mountain String Band, ALO, and Hot Buttered Rum.

Kyle will be joined by his good friends D’jango Ruckrich and Mei Lin Heirendt.
