Mother Hips Duo
Friday, June 23, 2023
Founded nearly 30 years ago while Bluhm and Loiacono were still just students at Chico State, The Mother Hips caught their first big break before they’d even graduated from college, when legendary producer and industry icon Rick Rubin signed the band to his American Recordings label. In the decades to come, the group would go on to release ten critically acclaimed studio albums and cement themselves as architects of a new breed of California rock and soul, one equally informed by the breezy harmonies of the Beach Boys, the funky roots of The Band, and the psychedelic Americana of Buffalo Springfield. Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “one of the Bay Area’s most beloved live outfits,” the group’s headline and festival performances became the stuff of legend and helped earn them dates with everyone from Johnny Cash and Wilco to Lucinda Williams and The Black Crowes. Rolling Stone called the band “divinely inspired,” while Pitchfork praised their “rootsy mix of 70’s rock and power pop," and The New Yorker lauded their ability to “sing it sweet and play it dirty.”
Magick Blues Band
Saturday, August 12, 2023
In December of 2016 Magick Blues Band began performing at local bars, dives, and venues in their hometown of San Jose and throughout the Bay Area. Formed as a quartet composed of a drummer, bassist, guitarist, and pianist–Magick became a resurgent force within the local San Jose music scene. The preamble of Magick delivered a raw, organic experience–offering older patrons' bouts of nostalgia while drawing younger ones to the surface of a vintage sound. As their shows picked up, Magick began performing new, original tunes and captivating covers, which allowed them to embody a unique sound of their own. A collective passion and musical pursuit expanded their presence throughout Bay Area communities–connecting them with local musicians and select venues. Sharing bills with legendary artists such as Eric Gales, Charlie Musslewhite, and Elvin Bishop, the feedback was clear that Magick’s resonance was expanding. At this time Magick set out to start experimenting with supplementary techniques and instruments, in hopes of broadening the tangible horizon of a fuller sound. With the addition of a second guitarist and drummer, the "Ouroboro" of Magick was born. The current six-member group delivers a powerful experience at any venue big or small–channeling elements of historic jam bands such as: The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, and more. Integrating elements of rock n’ roll, folk, soul, and jazz, Magick has created distinctive originals intertwined through the melodic resemblance of a classic era. A transcending group of musicians dynamically weaving through improvisational grooves, coalesced together by pulsations of symbiotic euphoria. With a growing archive of live and studio recordings, every performance generates an idiosyncratic nature–never exhibiting the same setlist twice. In their endeavor of eliciting elated emotions–The Magick Blues Band community continues to evolve from hometown family and friends to fans all across the globe.
The Builders and the Butchers
Saturday, October 14, 2023
The Builders and the Butchers were formed in the fall of 2005 in Portland, Oregon. The band’s first two years consisted of busking, playing house shows, and showing up unannounced anywhere around Portland where people were gathered. Folks began to take notice and the band transitioned slowly, going from playing on the floor of venues unplugged to gradually adding a mic here, an amp there, until they organically grew into one of the most exciting live acts in the Pacific Northwest. Even when plugged in, a cornerstone of almost every builders show is playing on the floor at some point during the set. Touring relentlessly from 2007-2012 The Builders gathered a cult dedicated fan base across the US and Europe. Playing dozens of music festivals like Sasquatch and Lollapalooza, as well as supporting artists like Portugal. The Man, Amanda Palmer, Murder By Death, and Heartless Bastards. In the past few years the members of The Builders and the Butchers have laid roots all around the world, coming together for shows, writing and tours whenever they can. The members are all originally from Alaska. Justin bought a home in Colorado and makes Gin and Whiskey for a living. Willy has been a captain on a ship based in Malta for the past couple of years. Harvey lives with his family in Washington state and Ryan, Paul and Ray reside in Portland, Oregon. With all of the logistics and facing a pandemic, wild fires and massive rioting in their hometown, Hell & High Water was a challenging, yet cathartic record to make. The Builders wrote Hell & High Water together as a band in a boat house in the marina where Willy lives. Frontman Ryan Sollee explains further: “Through the fall and winter of 2019, we would gather weekly, make a fire, drink beer and whisky and try to find some cohesiveness in these tunes. This gathering place was the most inspiring we have had in any creative process for any album up to that date.” It ended up being a stark contrast to the year that followed. After laying down the initial studio drum tracks with Badman label head Dylan Magierek for the album in February 2020, the band was forced to create remotely - which was a massive challenge, and pushed the band way past its usual comfort zone. Multi-instrumentalist Ray Rude and Engineer Edgar McCrae, molded and formed this album into life over the course of 2020, and hopefully made something that reflects the struggle, the pain, as well as some really amazing moments from the past year. The Builders have scheduled their first US and Europe tours (details coming soon!) in several years to support their latest release Hell & High Water. They hope to make music that brings people together for many years to come. "For more than a decade, the members of The Builders And The Butchers have specialized in a kind of white-knuckle Americana: Their acoustic folk-rock sound is shot through with nervy, hellfire-and-brimstone intensity. The Portland-born band's hometown brethren in The Decemberists provide a useful reference point — singer Ryan Sollee has a wide-open bellow and a gift for vivid imagery.” - Stephen Thompson, NPR Music
Lebo and Friends
Saturday, May 13, 2023
Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz is a six-string slinger and singer known for his one of a kind versatility, deft songcraft, and irresistible charm. Possessing a signature tone, the vehicle for his fluid, buttery sound is a flat top acoustic guitar that he has personally sliced and diced into an electric flat top, with a vintage style humbucker pickup. Inherently committed to an improvisational approach, Lebo embodies the realm of melodic and soulful sounds. Performing since his early teens in Saratoga, CA, Lebo’s path has been one of constant exploration, both sonically and conceptually. He co-founded ALO (Animal Liberation Orchestra) with childhood friends Zach Gill and Steve Adams. ALO tours the world, playing prestigious amphitheaters and regularly headlining multi-night runs, at venues such as San Francisco's legendary Fillmore Auditorium. In addition to ALO, Lebo leads his own band, Lebo & Friends, featuring a rotating cast of musical legends and rising stars. Dan "Lebo" Lebowitz is synonymous with the art of collaboration, and appears simultaneously in more high profile projects than many musicians do in a lifetime. In recent years, he has been embraced by the Grateful Dead family, memorably collaborating with the surviving members on separate occasions. He regularly performs with Phil Lesh & Friends at Terrapin Crossroads and has also joined Lesh at the legendary Capitol Theater in NY. Lebo also performs regularly with his longtime friend Jack Johnson. No matter what, where, how or who, music is Lebo's equivalent to breathing air or drinking water.

"It's all-American music," says The Coffis Brothers’ co-frontman, Kellen, about the band's 2022 release, Turn My Radio Up. "There's rock, blues, acoustic folk, and country in there. As music fans, we go all the way back to the beginning — to pioneers like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers — but we also look to artists like the Eagles and Tom Petty for influence. That's our playbook." Recorded at producer Tim Bluhm's home studio in Marin County and at 25th Street Recording in Oakland CA, Turn My Radio Up is an album for car stereos, hazy afternoons, and long highways. Jangling guitar leads and front-porch folk songs share equal space with heartland rock anthems and campfire-worthy Americana ballads, all dreamt into existence by a group of road warriors who wear their West Coast stripes proudly. This is honest, heartfelt roots-rock with an emphasis on the roots. With the aptly-titled Turn My Radio Up, The Coffis Brothers salute the glory days of the FM dial while planting their flag firmly in the present. A loose, limber album that showcases the full range of the band's abilities, the record bounces between full-throttle anthems like "Find Out the Hard Way" and acoustic folk songs like "Feel This Free." Along the way, the Californians make room for soulful, piano-driven standouts ("It's So Easy"), atmospheric Americana ("Two of A Kind"), and tongue-in-cheek twang ("Ramona"), with brothers Jamie and Kellen Coffis trading vocal and songwriting duties throughout. Jamie and Kellen Coffis were raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains of northern California. Their mother was a children's musician who often recruited the boys to join her onstage, instilling in them an appreciation for energetic, catchy songs that focused on melody, mood, and message. "We learned how to sing three-part harmonies with Mom at a young age," remembers Jamie, who later grew into an accomplished keyboardist as his brother sharpened his chops on guitar. When the two began writing songs together in 2007, they found that their shared upbringing — including the music they'd heard on the radio airwaves as kids — had left a lasting mark on their artistic sensibilities. "We have always loved the radio," says Kellen. "You can listen to one station and hear something you've never heard anywhere else, or you can listen to the classic rock station and hear music that hearkens back to yesteryear. Our music does both of those things, too." With their 2011 debut, The Coffis Brothers & the Mountain Men, the siblings introduced their mix of the new and the nostalgic, the contemporary and the classic. They began touring throughout Northern California, joined by a lineup that later coalesced around bassist Aidan Collins, lead guitarist Kyle Poppen, and drummer Cory Graves. Gig by gig, the band's audience grew. Santa Cruz Weekly described the Coffis Brothers' energetic stage show as "one part Avett Brothers and one part early Neal Young," with the San Francisco Chronicle praising the group's "easy rock vibe that’s actually hip." Meanwhile, follow-up albums like Wrong Side of the Road and Roll With It helped broadcast the band's sound well beyond California's borders. When the Covid-19 pandemic brought The Coffis Brothers' tour schedule to a temporary halt, Jamie and Kellen continued to work with Tim Bluhm — the Bay Area legend (and longtime Mother Hips frontman) Tim Bluhm who had produced the group's 2020 release, In the Cuts — during a series of livestreams. "We'd go to Tim's house, learn his songs, and back him up during those shows," Kellen remembers. "Other members of our band would sometimes join us, and that's how we all kept our chops up. It elevated our playing, our writing, and our singing." The brothers continued working on their own music, too, writing songs that blended the woodsy imagery of their native California with universal stories about love, loss, and the open road. When it came time to record those songs, The Coffis Brothers relied on the skills they'd sharpened during those shows with Bluhm, letting instinct and intuition lead the way. They didn't want to overthink things. Instead, the goal was simple: turn up, press 'record,' and let the songs evolve.
