Edge of the West / Bio

Edge of the West is a Rock n' Roots Honky Tonk Jamband. Their catchy, quirky originals and outlaw hippie sound strikes a chord with lovers of alt-country, Americana & the Grateful Dead. The live shows are a blast. The group writes original tunes and draws from from a deep well of eclectic covers, never playing the same show twice. A new record drops May 2016. This all-star band features members of Great American Taxi, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Todd Snider & more. When playing together in this configuration these guys have a ton of fun, as does the audience. Just try and sit still. Across the canyon we hear drums in the distance. Notes From the underground drift like smoke signals to a strange yet familiar place, where new friends and old come together for good times - The Edge of the West
