Edge of the West

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. The 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

Hunter and the Dirty Jacks

Hunter & The Dirty Jacks are California-Crafted Rock & Roll – like smoky whiskey with phosphorescent ice cubes in a blues-tinted glass. Led by frontman Hunter Ackerman and flanked by guitar players Carmelo Bonaventura and Jon Siembieda, with Aaron Barnes grooving the bottom end on bass and Brian Lara keeping the rootsy tribal beats, this band has been packing roadhouses and clubs in every town from San Diego to Seattle to Denver. Recently signed to the world's leading independent record label, Spectra Music Group, the album "Single Barrel" is playing on 400+ radio stations, holds 14 television licensing deals including Discovery Networks, MTV, and E! Network, while live the band has been dazzling musical reviewers both nationally and internationally with its "uncompromising energy and theatrical dominance" (Broke Ass Stuart) "befitting of a band that follows the legacy of the Rolling Stones and the Black Crowes."
