Pasadena-based, Old Californio will be bringing their unique brand of a West Coast California sound that was realized with their 2009 release, Westering Again, a record steeped in the very best of folk and country rock. They will be previewing songs from their upcoming June 2011 release, Sundrunk Angels, bringing you guitar-driven melodies, four-part harmonies and as rock journalist Domenic Priore describes the music, "psychedelic bounce and in-the-pocket, ethereal jams".
The roots-bluesy band, The Stone Foxes, are touring in support of their 2010 release "Bears and Bulls". The Bay Area four-piece consisting of brothers Shannon and Spence Koehler, Aaron Mort, and Avi Vinocur are influenced by the greats of the late 60s and early 70s like The Band, Bob Dylan, and Led Zeppelin and will be delivering great song writing, warm guitars, a nut-tight rhythm section, and the occasional blues harp riffs to the stage.
LA-based band, Whispering Pines, have several descriptions attached to their music including the drawn out "Hippie-folk-Southern-Jam". What the music boils down to is a soulful, authentic Rock, drenched in boisterous piano, southern rock guitar licks, blazing harp solos and drum and bass grooves that will make you boogie. Praise for Stone Foxes' Bears and Bulls:“ The four San Franciscans in The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that’s rooted in swampy, foot-stomping blues-rock. Their freshly released sophomore album, Bears and Bulls, tackles ambitious arrangements with diverse mo ods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs.” - NPR
