Songs Hotbox Harry Taught Us
Hotbox Harry loved his country music, but if you ask me, he was a rock n' roller at heart.
As for the man himself, he's been off the radar for a while, doing is thing.
But if the past is any indication, he'll appear, once again, at just the right time.

McHugh & Devine
McHugh (Donegal, Ireland) and Devine (New City, New York) met in early 2014 at a West Coast Songwriters competition in San Francisco, CA. Both new to the scene at the time, they decided to combine forces and begin writing songs together. Fast forward almost two years later and you can find McHugh & Devine touring throughout the West Coast as a 4-piece band to support their self-produced EP titled The Movie Blues.
Constantly genre hopping, the band's live show is captivating. And it all stems from the duo's synergy. While Devine leads the way with strong lead vocals and rhythm guitar, McHugh carries the band as he switches instruments nearly every song and adds spot-on vocal harmonies. The end result is a contagious mix of positive energy and originality. Rock N' Roll, Americana, Pop, Bluegrass, Country, and Folk… that's McHugh & Devine. It's twenty-something blues with a nostalgic twist.
McHugh & Devine just placed 2nd in the 2015 West Coast Songwriters International Song Contest for their single "Flame".
'Adventure:Us' named 1 of SF's 10 Best Albums of 2014. out NOW on Vinyl/CD/Digital via Aerobic International records.
Steep Ravine's soulful songs and fiery instrumentals take roots music in compelling new stylistic directions. Fusing elements of folk, bluegrass, jazz, rock and pop, the band continues to enthrall audiences with their uniquely Californian sound. Songwriter Simon Linsteadt (guitar, lead vocals) and Jan Purat (violin, vocals) began playing music together in high school in Northern California, later moving on to study music at UC Santa Cruz and the California Jazz Conservatory. They fortuitously met bassist Alex Bice (bass, vocals) through jam sessions in Santa Cruz. Percussionist Jeff Wilson, a close musical compadre, is the band's most recent addition. Steep Ravine has toured extensively throughout the country and has released two full-length records of all original material.
Edge of The West
Edge of the West is a rock n' roots jam band that plays danceable, fun music with heart. Their quirky originals and inventive instrumental journeys take you out there, and then bring it all back home with good old hippie classics and soulful covers. The shows are always a good party. Edge of the West mixes their own songs with eclectic selections from a variety of genres. On any given night you might hear anything from Johnny Cash to Grateful Dead to Sun Ra. Across the canyon we hear drums in the distance. Notes From the underground drift like smoke signals to a strange, familiar place where old friends meet for the very first time - the Edge of the West
