Only fitting to have Belle play our official 10 year anniversary date!  10/8/2004 is when Iron Springs first opened there doors to the community and we thank you all for all the continued support!

Look for those Golden Tickets!

Belle Monroe and her Brewglass Boys have been laying it on the line for Bay Area bluegrass lovers for over a decade. While the band has a great appreciation for traditional bluegrass music, they don’t quite play it straight; they inject a bit of blues, a smidgen of swing, and a whole lot of fun and frenetic energy. Their repertoire includes original bluegrass and versions of popular classics that are distinctively ‘Brewglass’.

The band was assembled at the foot of Mt. Tamalpais and in a matter of hours and over the course of six days, not only recorded the EP at the famed Camp Studios, with 400 million year old fossil-coffee tables!

Rusty Evans & Ring of Fire

The Worlds Finest Johnny Cash Tribute

Rockabilly Hall of Famer, Rusty Evans and his band Ring of Fire have been burning up the California festival circuit with his rollicking tribute to country music icon Johnny Cash. With a voice of rolling thunder and a spirit like gentle rain Rusty has been wowing audiences from Nashville to San Francisco with his stunning tribute to the “Man In Black”. His weighted drawl doles out molasses-coated syllables, putting an upbeat spin on less than optimistic situations. Lending his own touch to world famous songs Rusty honors the Man in Black with soulful honesty and exuberance. Driving rhythms on his amplified acoustic Martin guitar are augmented by his energetic three-piece band Ring of Fire. A hot rockin’ lead guitar, driving bass and drums create the powerful and irresistible Johnny Cash signature sound, a pulse that drives folks right to the dance floor. People often comment on how much Rusty actually looks like the Man in Black. He’s honored by the compliment and destined to continue in the spirit of the country music legend he holds in such high regard.
When asked how he first came to sing with such conviction the songs of Johnny Cash, Rusty replies, “I met the Man in Black in the 1960’s and was totally inspired, not to mention that Bob Dylan once told me long ago I sounded like Cash.”
Early musical endeavors include performing on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, touring with the New Christy Minstrels, working with renowned producer Phil Spector and producing/recording for CBS, Reprise and Folkway records.

NOVEMBER, MOVEMBER & CHOCOLATE BEER MONTH

Every November we have Chocolate Beer Month and this year we are taking it to a whole new level.  We will have at least 6 different choclate beers pouring all month long.  This year we are also pairing our chocolate beers with Movember.  We hope you will too as there will be some huge prizes given away.

What is Movember you ask?  The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won’t stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.  Movember’s not just for men. Women who support men’s health, known as Mo Sistas, are an important part of Movember’s success.  Stay tuned for more information about Chocolate Beer Month & Movember and come down on Friday October 31st to see Michael Altman -chief bottle washer – shave his facial hair to kick off Movember and start growing that stylish mustache.

Anyone else that comes down on 10/31 at 4pm to join Mike in shaving off all facial hair to kick off Movember and start growing their stylish stache will get dinner on the house that day.

We’ll see you at the pub!
