The Atomic Sherpas / Bio

The Atomic Sherpas meld funk, blues, jazz, and psychedelic rock and present it with a freewheeling stage show tied to a compelling dance groove that keeps the audience dazzled and dancing. Grizzled veteranos of L.A. punk rock, free jazz, blues, roots and rock n' roll scenes join forces with whippersnappers with mad skills with the simple goal of transporting their audiences to the ecstatic states previously known only to whirling dervishes and do so in clubs throughout the L.A. area and in yearly appearances at yearly headlining appearances at The Carter Ranch Music Festival. Members of The Atomic Sherpas have played/toured/recorded with the following groups: Mike Watt, Stew, Bazooka, Fatso Jetson, Lazy Brad Lewis, Brant Bjork, Shelby Lynne, Double Naught Spy Car, The Black Widows, I See Hawks In L.A., Sort of Quartet, Christopher Owens, The Pedestrians, Josie Cotton, Brother Weasel, The B-Movie Rats, Biblical Proof Of UFO's, Slowrider, The BellRays, The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs, Carlos Guitarlos, Passing Strange (The Musical), Fatso Jetson, and El Grupo Sexo.
