Delta City Ramblers
Delta City Ramblers
Delta City Ramblers have been known to hustle on the streets of Sacramento to get heard, and have been constantly playing all over in the Sacramento Bar scene, at well known establishments such as the Torch Club, Fox and Goose, and Marilyn's on K. DCR has been steadily gaining momentum in Sacramento with their three part harmonies, and interesting songwriting that push the strict rigor of roots music into something that is their own.

Kelly Stewart Vogel
Born in New York and raised in Northern California, Kelly Stewart Vogel learned to sing around midnight campfires, in church choirs, and within the loving swell of raucus gospel groups. She polished her vocal chops in San Francisco rock bands but found her niche in the the city's singer-songwriter scene, honing her piano-playing and singing into a soulful, haunting sound. Infused with gospel, blues, jazz, folk, and pop, Kelly's music is a composite of opposites, a found sound weaving together catchy piano riffs, heart-felt singing, and memorable melodies. As one writer put it, "you might hear influences in Kelly's music, but unlike most singer-songwriters, Kelly has a unique approach to lyrics, singing, and piano-playing. She is a true original and an exciting talent." 

Yaquina Bay
Yaquina Bay
Yaquina Bay started as a recording project by Oregon native Chris Ward in the summer of 2010. Layering accordion, ukulele, guitar, tambourines, and drums Ward slowly sculpted a sound praised for its distinct old world flavor and pop sensibilities. With powerful vocal melodies, and a sound all their own, Yaquina Bay is turning heads in the Oregon music scene.

Over the course of two full-length records the sound of Yaquina Bay has developed into a communal, shared experience. While still tipping their hats to an era long-past, Yaquina Bay has injected a healthy amount of pop in to each succeeding effort. It’s both nostalgic and fresh, familiar and new.

The band has grown into a dynamic group with a handful of players from around the Salem area. Kirstin Demezas (violin), Kendra Schmal (guitar, ukelele, piano), Aaron Schmidt (bass, programming), and Shawn Thornhill, (percussion) join Chris (guitar, accordion, ukelele) to form a powerful live act.
The group recently released a new digital single entitled “Old Foes”.
