Wednesday February 4th
The Known Unknowns
David Gans and Phil Savell – guitar
Zach Partain – bass
Neil Hampton – drums
The Known Unknown is an improvisational quartet (with frequent appearances by guest improvisers) formed in 2014 by guitarists Phil Savell and David Gans with the goal of making fresh, unstructured music every time they perform. “We jammed at a couple of holiday parties in December 2013,” says Gans, “and we clicked with sufficient intensity that we decided it would be fun to put a band together.” Zach Partain joined on bass for the first couple of gigs, and drummer Neil Hampton signed on shortly thereafter.
The band takes the stage with no plan. “We begin with a moment of silence; somebody plays something, the rest of us respond, and we’re off and running,” says Gans. “I think of it as spontaneous midair architecture.” The ensemble wanders into an actual song occasionally, but “pure improvisation” is the heart of the mission.
Wednesday February 11th

Joined for this special Weds evening session by Mike Pascale (Go By Ocean, Nicki Bluhm) on guitar and Ben Jacobs (Poor Man’s Whiskey, Rusty Stringfield) on keyboards/accordion.

1 Grass 2 Grass Redgrass Bluegrass
One Grass Two Grass Red Grass Bluegrass deliver hard driving, fun loving, old timey, new timey, California string band music. These fellas bring a high energy show infused with the laid back nature of the members themselves. They breath their very own brand of new life into a beautiful old American music tradition. Much of their unique sound is a mesh or yesterdays established protocols with the need to bring strings to the times in their own exciting way through a mix of old mountain tunes, upbeat original pieces, and an occasional stomping classic rock number. Come join ‘em!

If you like your swing with a twang, Buck Nickels & Loose Change serve up honky tonk you can dance to, steeped in blues and booze, cars and bars, and the cowgirl that got away.

Rusty Evans & Ring Of Fire with special guest Barry Sless
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.
