This band of bad ass pickers from Sonoma has become a local favorite over the past few years. The music is the equivalent of a runaway wagon ride careening around blind curves through majestic mountainous terrain. They distill pure delight as their confluence of psychedelic jam-grass and rollicking Americana takes control.

When people say that music is more powerful than any drug, this is the kind of stuff they’re talking about. Every time this band plays the Crazy Horse, monumental performances transpire. The power trio from Southern California lives up to its name when their relentlessly rocking, deliciously funky, irresistibly soulful sound is set in motion. It’s a family affair with brothers Manny Sanchez on drums and lead vocals and Ronnie Sanchez on bass. Guitarist Sarven Manguiat slices through the rhythmic soup with an electrifying presence. GrooveSession is guaranteed to drop jaws with a mix of inspiring originals and genre-spanning covers. We’re insanely excited to hear the brand new material from their latest release – “Free as you Wanna Be.”

On the last Thursday of each month, you can consider a trip to the Crazy Horse like going down to the crossroads. Fortunately this event is all about filling your soul rather than selling it. Grease, Grit & Grime has long since become a local institution for anyone who loves the blues. They like to call it “Dirty Blues” but it goes down smooth like a spoonful of honey or a shot of good whiskey. When it comes to the sultry, dance-inducing side of the blues equation, you can be sure they have that dialed. Adding to what is already a stellar lineup, local guitar hero Bob Woods will be offering his talents to the equation.
March 30 @ 9:45 pm
Joe Marcinek Band is an ever-evolving entity featuring a rotating cast of world class musicians. The spontaneity and synergistic power of these “super groups” continues to create breathtaking experiences for audiences around the country. The music is pure ear candy, blending funk, rock, jazz and soul with a cerebral emphasis on groove and improvisation. Their two shows at the Crazy Horse last year were among the most acclaimed in our history. This lineup rolling towards us like a tornado of sonic bliss features mad keyboard wizard Borahm Lee (***Pretty Lights, Break Science), New Orleans “monster drummer” Terrence Higgins (***Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Warren Haynes Band, Ani DiFranco, John Scofield) and ultra-funky bassist Nate Edgar (The Nth Power). Who the heck is Joe Marcinek, you might wonder? The visionary guitarist/vocalist/ringmaster at the center of this phenomenon.

Hailing from San Francisco, The Good Bad have been a part of the exploding newgrass/progressive bluegrass scene since 2010. Their high-energy take on the string band sound is just the kind of thing we love here at the Crazy Horse. It’s a breathtaking thing to behold as these ferocious pickers draw inspirations from the likes of Flat & Scruggs and The Devil Makes Three. Vocal harmonies and versatility are staples of their craft which they’ve honed to deliver a blissful sound that goes best with some whiskey.
April 6 @ 9:45 pm
This funky, jazzy, soulful, fun-loving jamband from San Francisco grab you immediately and refuse to let go. Their infectious original material and mindblowing covers veer down unexpected paths. Seductive vocals, multi-part harmonies, serpentine horn lines, hypnotic rhythms and hook-laden guitar licks combine to lead audiences to the promised land. They were one of the most impressive breakout artists at the Crazy Horse in 2017. Among many memorable moments, they floored us with a spellbinding rendition of Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi.” Big things are in store for these passionate gentlemen.
April 7 @ 10:00 pm
Jerry Garcia must be beaming with pride to see the way Andy Coe and his band have absorbed the inspiration of the Grateful Dead and taken it into unforeseen realms. Garcia was renowned for the pure connection between his heart and his hands. The same can be admired in Coe who is one of the most breathtaking guitarists we’ve ever seen at the Crazy Horse. From the first notes of the show, you will feel like you’re walking on air through a Grateful Dead candy land. This band from Seattle is a gift that keeps on giving. They’ll embrace magnificent and mysterious corners of the repertoire into the deepest reaches of imagination. Last time Coe and Co. showed us that they are pretty damn adept strutting their stuff on Led Zeppelin’s catalog as well. Their take on “No Quarter” was beyond reproach. Let’s see what they have in store for us this time.
