“The Shady Rest Band (www.reverbnation.com/theshadyrestband) has become one of the busiest bands in the Austin area by consistently putting on a great show. The band, formed by Ben Blair and Nate Guthrie in Mammoth, California before they moved to Austin, plays it's own blend of bluegrass and country. Blair and Guthrie met in California through a mutual ex-roommate, and decided to move to Austin to persue a career in music. While playing at Cheatham St Warehouse during their Friday Happy Hours, they met C.K. Dangerbird, who joined the band with his washboard and harmonicas, and while playing open mics around Austin, they met Jaz Lee Short, who took his stand-up bass and joined the band. Their gigs started to increase, and they can be found playing all over the Austin area, with steady gigs at Cheatham St Warehouse, Romeo's, The Tap Room and Sean Patrick's in San Marcos, and many other venues. This week they have released their first cd, "!Merica",”
