MerryGold

Victorian Xmas After Party

merrygoldTis’ the season to welcome a band with a name like this one. When Victorian Xmas winds down in the streets, the party continues in the cozy warmth of the Crazy Horse. Based in Placerville, themes of the Gold Country are abundant in MerryGold’s music. Their whiskey-soaked folk/bluegrass songs take listeners back to simpler times and portray a rawness that embodies the pioneer spirit of the Wild West. While traditional folk and bluegrass influences are apparent in their music, MerryGold incorporates a wide variety of influences to create their own sound.

Reed Mathis

Rewriting Songs You Know By Heart

12 - 15

reedmathisThe mastermind bassist behind Electric Beethoven brings his exciting new project to the Crazy Horse. Anything Reed Mathis is involved with is sure to push sonic boundaries, fill the spirit with euphoria and remind audiences of the shear power contained in live music. In the past he has blazed trails in collaboration with Roosevelt Collier, Bill Kreutzmann, Steve Kimock, Tea Leaf Green and Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. He will be joined by guitar phenom Clay Welsh (Electric Beethoven) and fiercesome drummer Scott Rager (Tea Leaf Green). The trio promises to siphon some of your favorite songs by the likes of the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and more through a kaleidoscope of radically fresh imagination. On top of that, we can assure you that whatever this band touches will be feverishly funky, rich in complex, rhythmic, jazz-infused sensibilities and likely to venture into the realms of jam-rock in ways you’ve never conceived.

World Beatnix

worldbeatnixNo passport is required to embark on an exotic musical journey around the world. This local ensemble pioneers a groundbreaking sound based on traditional rhythms from Africa, Brazil and the Caribbean. The highly danceable, spiritual amalgamation materializes from a hypnotic symbiosis of percussive rhythms, bass vibrations and melodies carried on the wings of guitar, sax and flute. Now with the addition of Jim Wendt on keyboards (Saints of Circumstance, The Nibblers) a jazzy, psychedelic, Grateful Dead influence has been injected into the mix.
