Vandella is a love child of rock & roll, roots & soul, helmed by two enigmatic front people and distinct songwriters. A modern-day Buckingham-Nicks, vocalist Tracey Holland and guitarist Chris Tye mix up a potent potion of sexy 70’s rock and San Francisco indie soul. Holland is a powerhouse of a frontwoman, whose vocal prowess is matched only by her insistent command of the stage. As writers, Holland is at times intense and bewitching; tempered by the understated, perennially-cool air of her counterpart in Tye. The result is a sound that feels both exciting yet effortlessly vibey – evocative of that hazy sheen of their native California.
Angelica Rockne is a local talent rapidly on the rise. She possesses a complex grit, belying her hypnotic beauty. Drinking from the well of classic country and desert rock, this is transportive mood music. She and her band might take your imagination to a place where Stevie Nicks is backed by Crazy Horse or Mazzy Star has delved into country.

What do you call a musical gumbo that recalls the ancestral strut and joie de vivre of the New Orleans’ Tremé, the drama and ecstasy of the church’s wailing floor, and the suited-up sophistication of jazz threaded with the party funk of Parliament? What do you name sounds that hail from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the red dirt South all at once? How do you label music that simultaneously evokes all of the uncontainable energies and passions exploding from so many disparate musical legacies? Here we call it Water Seed.

After months of anticipation, The Baker’s Dozen is finally upon us. What sort of statement will Phish make as they play the first of thirteen shows at New York City’s iconic arena – Madison Square Garden? As you probably know by now, watching a live webcast at the Crazy Horse is the next best thing to being at the show. Watch all the heart-racing action on our seven foot HD projection screen and the full range of our sound system.
This smoking hot string band from Cincinnati ignites an emotion-filled stream of consciousness and intuitive improvisational flow. Waving their freak flag high like a bunch of boxcar riding hobos, they establish a powerful synergy with every audience. Along with a wealth of timeless, original material, they are beloved for bluegrass interpretations of classic rock and Americana favorites. They made a big splash the last time they played here. This band is one of a kind!

Sailing in on a wave of blissful sound, Kanekoa has become a local favorite over the last few years. Powered by dual ukuleles and exotic rhythms, they ride the wave of Hawaiian jam-rock, island roots and reggae fusion. Audiences never fail to swoon over their soulful originals and crafty covers interpreted with pure originality. Bill Kreutzmann goes so far as to call them, “the Hawaiian Grateful Dead.” David Hidalgo of Los Lobos says, “These guys scare me. They are that good.” On top of all that, they were recently honored with the Na Hoku Hanohano award for Best Reggae Album of 2017!

We’re closing out the final installment of Summer Nights with a tribal dance party by this beloved local band. No 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, Egypt 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 Todd Gardner on guitar and Jim Wendt on keyboards (Saints of Circumstance) a jazzy, psychedelic, Grateful Dead influence has been injected into the mix.
