Description Featuring the hottest, freshest, and beardiest bands around these parts: Buck Wild & The Boss Hossers + Misisipi Mike & The Midnight Gamblers + The Creak + The Juncos The 13th annual SF Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival is around the corner, and will feature some of the best of the best. However, in order to bring you this amazing 10 day festival, this grass-roots, non-profit, volunteer-run festival needs a little help from you and needs support from the Bay Area bluegrass community. Please come out and support local bluegrass, old-time, and country roots music. *Tonight's show is dedicated to the memory of Bryan Osper, the amazing singer-songwriter and guitar player of Bucky Walters. Bryan and his band were big supporters of SFBOT and played the festival multiple times.* @Cafe du Nord 2170 Market Street, SF. $10-$20 suggested donation 7pm doors / 8pm show / 21+ http://shelbyashpresents.net/sfbotf_benefit/sfbotf_benefit.html LIKE US: http://www.facebook.com/pages/San-Francisco-Bluegrass-Old-Time-Festival/180653931953325 BUCK WILD & THE BOSS HOSSERS (SF) What started out in the basement of their Tender-Nob apartment building as adult film "documentaries" using homemade gadgets, such as the 12" banjo, feather tickler drum sticks, and the washtub bass as an actual washtub, the two brothers realized these so-called gadgets could actually be played like musical instruments. So they quit their day jobs, sold everything they owned besides the shirt on the backs, broke up with their stripper girlfriends, and set out on a quest, a journey if you will, 7 years in Tibet, learning the craft of traditional music making and basket weaving. 10 years later, this band of brothers are on the fast track to becoming California's most popular bluegrass outfit. They have played sold out shows at Great American Music Hall, Slim's, the Mystic in Petaluma, and have played every major music festival up and down the West Coast, including SF Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival, Hardly Strictly, Strawberry, and High Sierra. The band has recently raised over $10,000 on kickstarter.com to record their 2nd album. Playing under their former day job stage names, Buck Wild & The Boss Hossers promise you an experience you do not expect (from a band you've never heard of) and won't ever forget. The band plans to bring out many surprises from their "suitcase of love". You won't want to miss this show! MISISIPI MIKE & THE MIDNIGHT GAMBLERS (SF) This all-star band take their classic country music serious. It's like these boys were born in the 20s, honed their chops in the 30s, became superstars in the 40s, and were killed by either drugs, drinking, or a plane or car crash in the 50s. Classic country music never sounded so classic. Brand new CD out now! Pick up your copy, it will change your life. Featuring the best looking country boys this side of Misisipi Mike: Misisipi Mike Wolf (Misisipi Rider, The Mission Three, The Bootcuts, Sally Rides A Broom Stick), Mike Anderson (Hang Jones, The Cowlicks, 77 el Deora, Muffin & Cupcake), Leif Karlstrom (Lady A & The Heel Draggers, The Midnight Gamblers, Leif & Mrs. Garrett), Adam Roszkiewicz (The Whisky Richards, No More Tacos!) and Tony Sales (Misisipi Rider, Afternoon Delight Social Band, All You Can Eat Cream Corn Band). http://www.misisipimike.com/ THE CREAK (SF) Formed in summer 2009, this quintet plays acoustic music rooted in the bluegrass and folk tradition, with hints of blues and punk elements sneaking in to give them a sound both new and old. The Creak’s energetic performances and visible onstage chemistry inspire dancing, singing, and stomping, leaving audiences feeling elated to have taken part in such fun. Early 2011 saw the release of their debut effort "Here’s To Feeling Good All The Time", a forty minute collection of original tunes. http://www.thecreak.net/ THE JUNCOS (Santa Cruz) "Ripping their way through the American roots music landscape in high-energy style, the Santa Cruz-based Juncos are a down-home band that is more throwback than revival. With an appreciation for the acoustic life and a gather-'round-the-mic-y'all recording style, this is a group that understands the strength of a good song and how to let it stand on it's own. They can coax the sweet out of some harmonies, get the floorboards jumping with their foot-stomping tunes and wind their way through just about any roots-based genre. From jug music and rockabilly to folk, honkytonk and old-timey, the Juncos whip up a thick and hearty musical stew." - SC Weekly http://thejuncos.com/
