With a peak at 29,000 feet above sea level, Mount Everest in Nepal is one of the world’s tallest mountains. The musicians who comprise the Nevada City rock band Mount Whateverest have been to similar heights. Their music is a noisy collision of sugar-coated pop, space-jazz interludes and giant, classic rock riffs. Chanted school yard choruses combine with thumping glam rhythms to create the kind of day-glow rock and roll not heard since T. Rex roamed the Earth. Armed with distortion boxes, lasers and lots of extra oxygen, Mount Whateverest are so high, they’re breaking through into the bottom of something else entirely.
Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles of Dog Party have been making music around Northern California for a couple of years. When they’re not juggling school, sports, pets, life, or tearing up the hill at Squaw Valley USA, they are busy writing, recording, and playing some of the freshest, most exciting fun rock n roll around! Every minute is a party when P.A.R.T.Y.!!! is playing…we dare you not to tap your feet, challenge you not to sing along on the second listen, and will be in awe if you are NOT in the mood to P.A.R.T.Y. along with Dog Party and their amazing, positive brand of rock!
Persist To Rise is a solid formation of four great friends driven to play original music. Our sound is pulled together by four musically motivated minds, a drive to deliver fresh and original material. We live for music and want to share it with you.
One of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the vibrant Nevada County music scene is the noise-rock power trio, TV Stones. While still a relatively young band, they’ve already garnered a reputation as a live band that’s not to be missed.
As the Crow Flies produces events, fund-raisers and gigs for musicians and performance acts. Chad Conner Crow is the owner of this company and has had a successful year of events including, most recently the Summer Daze Concert Series 2013 and the Freaky Friday 2012 Series.
