Four great bands booked solid so far and more are on the way!

Lazyman (formerly Steve Pyle Band)

Lazyman is a Northern California rock band influenced by delta blues, "good" country music, African rhythms and tasty jams. These flavors wrap Steve Pile's original tunes like bacon around a fig. As Steve Pile Band, they have been playing around the Bay Area for 5 years, as well as with other bands like Tiny Television and Fog Dub.


Check them out – listen to the track Wake Me Up!

The Pine Needles

The Pine Needles were founded in February of 2005 out of a love for the organic, vital tones of the American acoustic stringed instruments. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay area, the band has evolved from a duo with just bass and guitar, to a trio with mandolin, to a quartet with percussion, bass, guitar, and violin.


Listen to a sample of their sound below.

Lungs & Limbs

Lungs and Limbs formed in early 2013 in Northern California. Their music has been described as "Yeah Yeah Yeahs meets Pink Floyd." Lungs and Limbs members are Chris Casey, bass and vocals, Matt Power, drums and vocals, Karina Rousseau, lead vocals and guitar and Nick Tudor, lead guitar and vocals.

One Grass Two Grass Red Grass 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.

Give them a listen!
