Shoot Jake
Shoot Jake
Influences: Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, B.B. King, Albert King, Freddie King, Clapton, the Vaughan Brothers, Hendrix, The Black Keys, Tower of Power, The Black Crowes, Mariah Carey's Butterfly Album (and subsequent "Glitter" movie), The White Stripes, The Black Keys, and Burt Reynolds' mustache. That last one isn't a band, just something we think is cool.

Shoot Jake started out as a side project for 3 Washington State musicians who met at a blues jam in 2010. In 2012 Ben and Lindsay made the band their full time gig, and started working with a roster of talented bassists. Early that year they recorded their debut EP, "Shoot Jake," a gritty collection of blues, rock and funk originals. Since then they've continued to travel almost every weekend, playing festivals, clubs and opening shows for major BMA and IBC award winning acts like Tommy Castro, WIRED! and Too Slim and The Tail Draggers. A full length album is currently in the works.
Dead Country Gentlemen
Dead Country Gentlemen are a San Francisco-based trio fronted by Cameron Ray, a California-born songwriter raised amid the bright lights and dark motives of Las Vegas. Joined by Evan Kaiser on drums and Pearce Merritt on keys, the band's music combines thundering distorted guitar, stomping rhythms and catchy melodies with emotionally charged lyrics about love and loss.

Having played throughout San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Ojai, San Luis Obispo, Reno, and Las Vegas, Dead Country Gentlemen put on a loud, high-energy live show that often results in breaking a sweat, breaking a string, and on some occasions, breaking skin.
Cold Comfort
High energy vintage rock & roll fueled by crafty songwriting, soaring vocal harmonies and a driving rhythm section.
