We are thrilled to announce our current 2018 band line-up:
Moonshiner Collective — https://www.moonshinercollective.com/
Moonshiner Collective is the San Luis Obispo, California based musical project of multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Dan Curcio, drawing from a diverse range of folk, rock, and Americana influences. The name was derived from the experiences Curcio had playing music under the moon and stars with friends while living in a yurt overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the small California beach town of Cayucos. Nestled up on a vast hillside, it was a place to share songs, stories, food, and drink with musicians and travelers who were passing through town and needing a place to camp out for the night.
Mother Corn Shuckers — http://www.mothercornshuckers.com/
The Mother Corn Shuckers were grown on the Central Coast of California in 2009. They sprouted out as a music jam around a smoky fire pit on wednesday nights. Various people would come by for a little music playing and drinkin’ to get through the rest of the work week. When asked to play their first gig The Mother Corn Shuckers began to grow as a 4-5 piece band

Shawn Clark Family Band — http://www.shawnclarkfamilyband.com/
Shawn Clark writes music from the heartland. Attend a Shawn Clark Family Band show and you’ll hear a Hank Williams, Sr. tune or an obscure Marty Robbins song. Primarily, you’ll hear Shawn Clark’s original tunes, delivered in his confident baritone. Inspired when hearing Townes Van Zandt’s version of the Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers” while watching the film, The Big Lebowski, Shawn Clark thought, “I want to write music that sounds like that.” Two years later, he has two albums, a fine group of fellow musicians making up the “Shawn Clark Family Band” and his sights set on bringing this old-style country music to a wider audience.
Mark Adams — http://markadams.us/
Mark Adams was raised among the vineyards and cattle ranches of Paso Robles, California, a bountiful but rugged coastal hill region where the culture is equal parts cowboy and surfer. He grew up listening to honkytonk in pick-ups in the fields of his family ranch, as well as hardcore and punk among the surf spots of Cayucos, California (which is why picker Lefty Frizzell and The Dead Kennedys are cited among his earliest influences.) Old country and punk’s shared themes of staunch independence, fresh cultural insight, humor, unabashed and thoughtful self-exploration and the confidence to call BS when seen, have long informed Adams’ artful and playful songwriting.
Kevin Graybill — https://www.kevingraybill.com/
Kevin Graybill is an acoustic Indi-Folk singer/songwriter originally from Seattle, WA, but as of recently, now resides in SLO. He has a smooth voice that’s often compared to Jack Johnson and Sam Beam of Iron and Wine. Though comparable to others, he has a style of his own most recently described by an audience member as a “reggae version of Barry White.” In addition to several originals, expect an eclectic handful of covers at his shows ranging from artists like Blackstreet, JJ Cale, Bobby McFerrin, and Cyndi Lauper.
