Music Calendar

+Saturday, April 30 ~ The Coffis Brothers

The Coffis Brothers
10:00 PM

Coffis Brothers

The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men are a rootsy rock n’ roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Every bit as influential as their early surroundings, songwriters Jamie and Kellen Coffis’ blend of folk, blues, R&B and straight ahead rock are evidence of an upbringing spent listening to all of the right records from Tom Petty, Neil Young, and The Beatles.

Silhouette Era
10:00 PM

Coffis Brothers

The Silhouette Era practically define Northern California's own brand of surf pop; not that of hot summer nights, but of freezing dawns and the sobering ennui that can only be found when you look, bleary-eyed out into an infinity of grey sky and ocean.

NEW ALBUM "BEACONS" out August 4th 2015 on digital and vinyl formats on Breakup Records!
