Monthly Sunday Hoedown with the best country, americana, rockabilly, alt-rock bands in the bay. Good food, good beer, good music and good people.
Crying Time
Crying Time
Honkytonk revisionists out of Oakland, Crying Time plays straight-up country and western music, from Bob Wills to Glen Campbell with whistle stops in between. Their original songs sit pretty in the mix – you’ll think you heard these tunes on your daddy’s stereo when you were little. Jill Rogers is a singer’s singer with a 1974 voice and a story to tell, and Myles Boisen is a hero of juke joint licks on the six string and lap steel guitar. Bay Area music scene veteran Tony Marcus's fiddle weaves through the songs while Tim Rowe on drums and Smilin’ Pete Garellick on bass hold down the rhythm with grace, style, and swing.
Velvetta
Velvetta
Processed American Country Music. No one can keep us down but most find us pretty easy to swallow.
Four Year Bender
Four Year Bender
Four Year Bender’s brand of country fried rock n roll was a mainstay on the Bay Area scene for well over a decade. Their debut album, “Lucky” garnered critical acclaim as well National airplay, but it was the live shows that made them legends.

Led by songwriter, Ryan Smith, the Bender expertly walked the line between earnest, quality song-craft, and raucous rock n’ roll debauchery. There was a little bit of something for everyone at a Four Year Bender show, and it was all excellent.

After an extended, and drama-filled hiatus, the original band has jumped back into the studio and recorded a new full-length album entitled “Gettin’ Gone”, slated for release in the Spring of 2019. This eagerly-awaited follow up revisits Four Year Bender’s specialty for catchy, melodic tunes about the beautiful weirdness that is modern life. Recorded in 5 days while the band was holed-up in a remote studio in Stinson Beach California, it sounds like old friends that have been through the wringer and lived to smile about it.
