Nashville Honeymoon
Nashville Honeymoon
Born in a school auditorium in Berkeley, California and nurtured in live music venues on both sides of the Bay, Nashville Honeymoon is led by Hank Maninger and Lynne Maes, whose shared love of country music led to a creative partnership onstage and off.

Nashville Honeymoon’s music is a modern reworking of the classic country sounds of the 50s and 60s. Their songwriting draws on country, rockabilly, and honkytonk traditions. Hank and Lynne bring the best of traditional country duets to life, reminding listeners of George and Tammy, Loretta and Conway, Porter and Dolly, and Waylon and Jessi.
Moonshine Maybelline (EP Release)
Moonshine Maybelline (EP Release)
Like a siren from the shore, Moonshine Maybelline lures you in with spellbinding ballads, mesmerizes with moody soundscapes, and crashes your broken heart into their country-rock.

Catherine Foreman's powerful vocals (Starlene, Doomsday Cafe) and instantly memorable songs are the centerpiece of this dynamic 5-piece band from San Francisco. Sparks began to fly when she teamed up with twang-rockers Bob Spector (guitar) and Ted O'Connell (bass) of The GoldDiggers and the lineup was solidified with Ian Taylor Sutton on pedal steel and drummer Steve Pearson.

Moonshine Maybelline was introduced to the world with a live performance on college radio leader KALX which earned a spot on their "Best of 2014" list and a SXSW showcase opening for hometown favorite Chuck Prophet.

The band continues to shine on the local scene with appearances ranging from The Fillmore Poster Room to an outdoor concert at Pixar Animation Studios and top local clubs including Make-Out Room, Armando's, The Starry Plough and The Lost Church.
Dillbilly
Dillbilly
Dillbilly (pronouns: they/them) is a genre-queer alt-country singer-songwriter based out of Oakland, CA. Raised in a trailer park in the rural midwest near the Ohio River, Dill grew up surrounded by cornfields and grain silos going jug fishing and playing classical piano. Born to a touring singer/guitarist father, Dill was introduced to the music world at a young age. At 18, they won a piano scholarship that sent them to Berklee College of Music. Feeling uprooted and homesick as a transplant in Boston, Dillbilly dropped out and went back to the Midwest to start a band with their high school friends. Over the past 20 years, they have been performing and touring across the U.S. and Canada releasing 9 full length albums as well as contributions to soundtracks for movies and TV under their birth name, Denise Dill. Most of those releases were self recorded and released. Since moving to the Bay Area in 2015, they renamed their musical self and chose a name that more accurately embodies where they come from, where they draw inspiration, who they collaborate with, and how they identify as a genderqueer person. Now, in the 2018, they are performing as a band and have teamed up with renowned musician and producer Julie Wolf to create their 10th full length record which will be released next year.

Whether the vehicle of the song is guitar, uke, banjo, sax, or piano, Dill’s songwriting is “[…] so strong you can taste it. It is sweet, spicy, savory, organic, homegrown, lots of twists, sometimes complex, sometimes so simple, and oh so very delicious! Their albums makes you want to sit in a rocking chair on a front porch in the fall while eating peach salsa, or wander out deep in the woods without knowing were you’ll end up,” says artist and friend Margaret Belton of San Franscisco, CA.
Misisipi Mike Wolf!
Misisipi Mike Wolf!
Misisipi Mike Wolf is the Northern California based/Mississippi & Louisiana Bayou raised singer, songwriter and studio/touring lead guitar player who, yes, spells that word wrong. And the reason why reaches back to his early days as a musician when he was equally interested in classic country music and burgeoning underground HipHop scene. His first professional work was a guitar player in various bands, before moving into songwriting for his own bands. Not long after he was named "Best Singer/Songwriter In The Bay" not once, but two years in a row by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. His music has been featured multiple times on many popular TV shows in the US and Canada, such as Justified, True Blood, Sons of Anarchy, Big Love to name just a few, as well as the series premier of the Amazon Series "The Man In The High Castle" (between Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald!" plus a handful of major theatrical releases. In 2017 Misisipi Mike had the honor of having a tribute album featuring only his compositions recorded and released by St. Louis, MO band The Cree Rider Family Band. Misisipi has toured Europe and the US many times and has fans from Japan to Germany, which has nothing to do with plot of The Man In The High Castle (I swear!) and has played his compositions for Jerry Brown, Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi. His bands have opened or shared bills with a wide variety of well known names like Emmylou Harris, Hooray For The Riff Raff, WEEN, The Cactus Blossom, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters), Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins and many, many others. Misisipi Mike is also the touring lead guitar player for two nationally signed bands, Actual Wolf (Minnesota/Oakland) and The Easy Leaves (Sonoma), both of whom are generating a lot of buzz and have a busy schedule of local and national/international dates in 2018. He is sponsored by Monster Cable and EMG Guitar Pickups and is published by LoveCat Music (NYC).

Finally, Misisipi Mike Wolf is a well known and prolific gig poster artist, producing almost 700 posters for well known touring acts in the US and Europe and for a great number of SF Bay Area bands. And yes, he still spells that word that funny way.....
