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.

Persist to Rise

 

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.

Ghost Pines formed in the fall of 2011, practicing in an attic at the end of an otherwise unremarkable alley in downtown Nevada City. With Jacob Bradford on drums, Andrew Collins on bass, and Robbie Landsburg on guitar and vocals, the band began forging their unique approach to music with the raw sounds of indie grunge rock fused with the textural melodies of psychedelic math rock.  Inspired by the diverse music scene of Nevada County and surrounding areas, Ghost Pines follow in the footsteps of other experimental rockers native to Northern California, while simultaneously forging their own path through the sonic landscapes they explore.

The space rock collective based out of Nevada known as Bazooka Zoo is all about creating groovy tunes and discovering new sounds.  The fellows in the Zoo bridge genre boundaries and speak across generations.  Their goal is to supply the public with steady doses of FREE and RADICAL music. We imagine our products and our members as creatures in a Zoo… So unique and multidimensional.  We share this Habitat together and create mystical jams with whoever can hang.  The Zoo continues to push the boundaries of sound and genre mashing excellence today.  Stay tuned for a far-out experience.

Bazooka Zoo

New North San Juan power trio Grind Stone, harnesses the power of Stone Core music while playing original, heavy, primal, rock.

 

Chris French is a moody and dynamic vocalist formerly of local favorites The Still Sea.  He will be performing an acoustic set.

 

 

Magician Nick Fedoroff, who is best known for his astonishing close-up magic, often performs at corporate events both nationally and abroad.  A master of elegant old-school magic enhanced with a contemporary spin, Fedoroff’s slick and graceful manipulation of cards and coins is simply mesmerizing.  Just when the audience thinks they’ve seen it all, Fedoroff promises to send them spinning into a world where nothing is as it seems.
