The McCoy Tyler Band: You can call it alt. country, you can call it modern folk--but no matter what label you put on it, in the current climate of popular music The McCoy Tyler Band's songs are refreshingly lucid, rootsy, and at times downright danceable. With influences ranging from Neil Young to The Devil Makes Three, Townes Van Zandt to Railroad Earth, with a little Bill Monroe and Tony Rice thrown in for good measure, this progressive acoustic trio from Santa Cruz, CA will have you out of your seat and dancing in no time. Rooted deep in the customs of American folk music, The McCoy Tyler Band seeks to pay homage to such traditions while incorporating their own unique style of lyricism, instrumentation, and performance. Their motto (in the words of David Grisman): “Any tradition results from free thinking.” History Of Painters: History of Painters is a hopeful, melodic band that is comprised of two songwriters who strive to create genuine, heartfelt Alternative/Folk music. They put the truth and their hearts in every song they write and are dedicated to making honest music that makes a difference. Moved by artists such as Sigur Ros, Coldplay, Mumford & Sons and Simon and Garfunkel, History of Painters produces a unique and uplifting outlook on life and love.
This will be our last show of the year, and who better to share the stage with than The Show Ponies, a wonderfully talented bluegrass group from LA. Hope to see ya there!
Sounds Like: Mumford and Sons, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, The Avett Brothers, Simon & Garfunkel

"Impressed by what I heard at Live Oak [Music Festival] and by the combination of modesty, maturity, humor and dedication I noted by my interview with them, I expect to be one of those happy locals who can someday say 'I knew them when.' "
