FEATURED ARTISTS coffis bros – JUNE 27 The Coffis Brothers & The Mountan Men are a Rock and Roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Songwriters Jamie and Kellen Coffis are backed by Kyle Poppen on lead guitar, Mason Hutchinson on bass and Henry Chadwick on drums. The Coffis Brothers boast an extensive repertoire of original rock and blues tunes built around simple and honest lyrics, neatly constructed verses and catchy hooks. The brothers blend of folk, blues, R&B and straight ahead rock are evidence of an upbringing spent listening to Tom Petty, Neil Young and Beatles records.

ELECTRIC GREASE – JUNE 28 Electric Grease is a band from the central valley that plays all over the state of California. Their music is influenced in the early Chicago blues and west coast jump styles. Their 4 piece band has an exciting rhythm and blues has a sound that has them performing to packed houses up and down the west coast. They have been described as a greasy and gritty band that leaves the crowd wanting more!
