The Wet Bandits
The Wet Bandits
San Jose California’s THE WET BANDITS, are living proof; that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in a music landscape where genres can isolated bands, stifling new creative ideas. With voracious EP sales and a growing/loyal fan base, their fast rise is a testament into what this band brings to the table. Instead of adhering to one genre, the Wet Bandits combine their lifelong influences of alternative rock, jazz, r&b/soul into a truly original moving and sound. Their confidence in songwriting is matched by an “all or nothing” live performance that engages any set of ears and bodies it reaches.
Dragland
Dragland
Dragland is the singer/songwriter project of long time New York and San Francisco guitarist Adam Dragland (Gold Minor, Seven Stories Falling, Kat Robichaud, First Church of the Sacred Silversexual, etc). The group of songs the band performs has been many years in the making, but was ignited through new music written during the most recent eventful years in Dragland's life. In this band, he steps away from his comfortable role as a lead guitarist and explores the roots of his musical upbringing. Joined as always by longtime songwriting partner and Gold Minor vocalist Michael Carney on bass, Dragland vents decades of pent up emotional energy through both his trusty old telecaster and raspy, weathered vocal chords. There are strong rock, folk and country elements in the mix, but the end result is refreshing accessible pop music that invites your body to dance. The immense talents of veteran drummer John Hollis give this band the wings to create music that is immersed with genuine soul and sexy rock-n-roll. The first single will be released late in 2016, and 2017 will see the release of Dragland's first full length record.
The Human Condition
The Human Condition
San Francisco string band The Human Condition (T.H.C.) performs original, modern-day roots music, creating a sound as varied as the world they inhabit. Rowdy barnstormers and driving road songs are offset by calmer, brooding ballads that evoke lazy days and restless nights. Guitars, mandolin and upright bass are joined by vocal harmonies and harmonica in a familiar palette which is cast in a new light by innovative songwriting and lyrical imagery.

The group expands as friends are available, to include banjo, fiddle, lap steel, and melodica; providing a variety in live performances that makes each show truly special.
