Dog Party EPK

Dog Party


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, they are busy writing, recording, and playing some of the freshest, most exciting fun rock n roll around.

Shinobu ~ “Shoot the Sky Down”



Shinobu has been a band for along time and still enjoy it.  They don’t believe in cetacean history.






Pug Skullz ~ “Smoke”

Pug Skullz


Pug Skullz is a three piece punk band from the back woods of Nevada County, CA.  In the spirit of punk ancestors like 7 Seconds and Stiff Little Fingers, Pug Skullz music is catchy, loud, fast, and simple, while the lyrics carry a contemplative message of surprising depth.  The Vinyl Avenger calls Pug Skullz music “… late 70’s, early 80’s, honest, raw, fast and loud, in-your-face punk rock.  Just the way we like it here!”

Devil’s Train ~ “Last Caress”

The Devils Train



Jazz Punk from Hell  musicians The Devils Train feature a tidal wave of fast drum beats, mad slapping, crazy picking, and psychotic lyrics that only a demon could love.  If you love a circle pit or just want to watch, The Devils Train is for you!

As an expression of cultural joy, you can’t top an Irish wake. And what is a wake but a celebration-a toast of appreciation-an expression of love-and a damn good party?  So when seven top Bay Area musicians realized they shared as deep a love for the songs of the Grateful Dead as they did for traditional Celtic tunes, some brand-new music sprang up and started partying.

Wake the Dead is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere. “Sugaree” in waltz time, bracketed by an ancient harp tune and infused with a poignant Celtic longing. “Bertha” thundering out of “China Cat” on a mandolin tidal wave. The eerie lilt of the uilleann pipes, giving a glow to “Bird Song” as if it was always meant to be there. Groove jams to keep the tie-dye swirling. Vocal harmonies that float like clouds. The music takes off, and the band follows, grinning all the way. These aren’t worlds colliding-they’re worlds meshing, coalescing­ creating a whole new world of possibility, and true to the spirits of the Grateful Dead and the eternally hopeful Celts.

Wake the Dead bands together seven of the best-known and most respected players in the west. Harper Maureen Brennan has toured for over 30 years and recorded the acclaimed “Harpistry” collection. Bassist Cindy Browne is equally at home in folk and jazz, touring globally as the musical fusion go-to gal. Singer, fiddler, and octave mandolinist Danny Carnahan is an award-winning songwriter whose original Irish-tinged songs are popular worldwide. Kevin Carr is a musical triple-threat, renowned as a dance fiddler, a pennywhistler, and Irish piper par excellence. Sylvia Herold’s delicious vocal phrasing can also be heard on her solo recordings and her performances with Euphonia. Paul Kotapish is known far and wide for his work with Kevin Burke’s Open House, and for his blazing guitar and mandolin with The Hillbillies From Mars and Euphonia. And Latin percussionist Brian Rice rounds out the band’s groove engine.

The Garcia Project

“I spent a lot of nights in a lot of places with the Jerry Garcia Band, and I’m here to say that I really enjoy what The Garcia Project does with those memories.  Mik’s guitar and his and Kat’s vocals stir up some very sweet vibes.. sometimes they almost make me feel like I’m back in, say 1992 at the Warfield.  Check ’em out.”
– Dennis McNally, former publicst for the Jerry Garcia Band

The Garcia Project’s performances are based on actual set lists performed by The Jerry Garcia Band.  All of their shows are classic recreations of a Jerry Garcia Band set list from 1976 to 1995.  For anyone who never had a chance to experience the Jerry Garcia Band or for fans that want to relive a classic show, The Garcia Project delivers.  The Garcia Project has received rave reviews from the press and from fans.  Touring nationally, The Garcia Project has made many Jerry Garcia fans extremely happy.  It’s about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another.



Paul Kamm, Jonny Mojo and Shelby Snow are singer/ songwriters and front men of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel.  As an acoustic trio they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence to a quieter place, combining a bit of Country and Bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. But it’s the infectious quality of their songwriting that really shines in this setting, and the diverse nature of it as well. Paul and Jonny work off of each other like two sides of the same coin, actively looking for and pushing each other to find the most in whatever song they’re playing.  Shelby on the bass is like a river, both calm and turbulent, that runs through it and ties it all together.
