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.

Boston Ravine is a father-daughter duo based out of Grass Valley, CA. They focus on bluegrass, country, and gospel music. They are inspired by both traditional bluegrass artists such as Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and The Osborne Brothers as well as newer artists like Flatt Lonesome, The Grascals, and The Del McCoury Band. The band name, Boston Ravine, was the name given to the original settlements in Grass Valley during the Gold Rush era.

 

The Ascenders are a multi-genre improvisational family band from Chico, upholding the majesty of music through jamming, shredding and experimental projects.  They appeared at Jerry Bash 2017 and have frequently perform at venues and festivals throughout California for the last several years.

Second Time Around is a multi-talented force that carries on the vision that Duane Allman had all those years ago: to spread the gospel of American Blues, R&B, & Jazz music to the people.
