    Forestville, CA, US | 8:00pm

    Plan to stay late, as this show wont end until its almost time to close down the bar! Forestville Club is a comfortable hang out with a full bar, plenty of tables and chairs, great acoustics, a pool table room, and a nice big dance floor, and is an age 21 and over nightclub. They are happy to welcome back a Sonoma County favorite singer/songwriter, Mountaindawg, on June 13th. The trio includes Mountaindawg Joe on Guitar, Vocals, and Mandolin, plus rhythm section Freddie Araiza on Drums, and Erik "Erok" Deste on Bass. Mountaindawg will be performing original heartfelt rock that will move your soul. If you like to dance, Mountaindawg music will move your feet too! Planning a bake sale in the back room to benefit our Cancer stricken friend, Chelle. We will also be video taping for a future release, and inviting others to video and contribute to our future video. More details TBA.

Q: What is your favorite mountain?

A: Mt. Shasta because it emits spiritual power. Since I was a kid, I feel awakened in Mt. Shasta's presence. All mountains represent the forces that built the Earth. Interesting question from a talented human being, thank you Sebastian!
