David Wax and Suz started this band as friends. They are now married, with a child and the whole family hits the road together.

Headliner: Christopher Paul Stelling; Opening: Moon Shines Red New York

There is a fearless quality to the music of Christopher Paul Stelling. He’s been described as a voice that sounds both old and young, with an effortless yet intricate finger-picking guitar style and lyrics that are both dramatic and intensely confessional.

August 9, 2016 at 6 pm Sean Hayes Opening: Josh Driscoll San Francisco Sean Hayes was born in New York City, raised in North Carolina and came of musical age in San Francisco. On a whim, Hayes threw some clothes and a guitar into the back of his friend’s car and made his way to San Francisco, spending a few years in that city’s great little folk scene.

August 16, 2016 at 6 pm Headliner: Sam Outlaw; Opening: Molly Parden Los Angeles

Outlaw is a southern Californian singer-songwriter steeped in the music and mythos of west coast country, absorbing the classic vibes of everything from ’60s Bakersfield honky-tonk to ’70s Laurel Canyon troubadour pop. In simplest terms, it’s country music with a Cali spirit to it.
