Trouble in the Wind
Trouble in the Wind has been labeled as folk, Americana, alternative, country, surf rock …etc but the Southern California quartet likes to call themselves “rock and roll”. The band’s stripped-down organic sound is a multi-instrumental collective fronted by songwriter Robby Gira, whose powerful voice creates the center of attention of their songs. The group’s instrumentation of accordion, upright bass, brushes, banjo and guitars color the emotional songs which blend and range from ballads to surf folk to soulful rockers.
Whether it be light on the horizon, men on the run or love in the air, it’s always Trouble in the Wind
– Alexi Con DeVille
"The Salvador Dali of Folk Music"
Baby Gramps is an energetic humorously entertaining performer with an endless repertoire. He plays a National Steel guitar, and sings his own unique arrangements of rags, jazz, & blues from the 20's & 30's, and many originals with wordplay, humor, and throat singing.
According to an article in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Baby Gramps is acknowledged as one of the top 50 most influential musicians in the last 100 years.
This past year Baby Gramps was asked to be part of three films. One is a documentary about the history of jugband music, another is an update of the academy award nominated film Streetwise that he performed some music for 30 years ago, and the third is 50 Feet of Film that includes a new original song about the homeless.
Baby Gramps toured Australia, England, and Ireland as part of the Rogues Gallery CD Concert Tour with Tim Robbins (actor), Marianne Faithful, Lou Reed, Martin Carthy, Suzanne Vega, Ralph Steadman, and many other internationally known performers. The Rogues Gallery CD, produced by Johnny Depp and Hal Willner in connection with The Pirates of the Caribbean film, landed Baby Gramps on the David Letterman Show accompanied by Tony Garnier, Bob Dylan's band leader and bass player.

B & The Hive
B & the Hive captivates audiences everywhere they go with their intoxicating sound, dynamic performances, and undeniable intensity. Led by the stunning vocals of Brianna Lee, B & The Hive create music from the heart blending the sounds of Rock, Indie, Pop, and Soul.
The band is comprised of lead singer & songwriter Brianna Lee on Vocals/Guitar, co-songwriter and producer Josh Barrett on Bass, Hannah Joy-Brooke on Keys and Backing Vocals, Hayden Gardner on Drums, and Eric Novak on lead guitar.
The band consistently tours opening for world renowned artists such as Goo Goo Dolls, Alanis Morrisette, Chris Isaak, Elvis Costello, Ben Harper, Allen Stone and many more. Their engaging live performances have put them on the bill at some of the top venues on the west coast including the Great American Music Hall, Bottle Rock Festival in Napa, Vina Robles Amphitheater, Henry Miller Library, Humphrey's by the Bay, Hotel Cafe, Whale Rock Music Festival, and The Mountain Winery.
The David Nelson Band has been recording and performing around the country since 1994. Their broad musical palette spans the Almost Acoustic style that Nelson played with Jerry Garcia, through roots rock n' roll and country-rock, to full blown psychedelic, jazz tinged space jams. The DNB perform David's compositions (some co-written with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter), select covers, and several Grateful Dead classics upon which Nelson appeared on the original album releases. These stylistic elements, combined with plenty of spontaneous free form improvisation, create a sound that is uniquely David Nelson Band. Though the original songs are mostly written by Nelson, the development of all the material is a fully collaborative effort. The Nelson, Sless, Siegel, Sears, Molo Band as a name is a bit cumbersome - though in reality, that's what they are.
These days the DNB only tour select areas a few times a year, as the individual band members are in high demand with other successful touring acts. Their loyal and enthusiastic fans relish these special times to reunite at Nelson family gatherings. DNB shows are a joyous reunion for all - a communal gathering where regulars and newcomers all feel part of an extended family. Each show, being unique and exploratory in nature, is a magical adventure for band and audience alike. It's one of the reasons why many of the fans follow the band to every show, including their annual Hawaii Tour (which draws many mainland fans as well as islanders for the week to ten day island party).
David Nelson - guitar/ vocals - is a founding member of the New Riders of the Purple Sage and long time musical partner of Jerry Garcia's dating back to 1962 in the pre-Grateful Dead bluegrass band, The Wildwood Boys. Nelson was also a member of the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band and performed on three Grateful Dead albums - Aoxomoxoa, Workingman's Dead & American Beauty - playing the character laden electric guitar solo on Box of Rain. Nelson has also performed as a member of Phil Lesh and Friends.
Barry Sless - lead guitar/ pedal steel - has been a frequent member of Phil Lesh and Friends lineups since 2004. He tours currently with Moonalice and has toured as a member of Kingfish, Cowboy Jazz, the Rowan Brothers, and Great American Taxi.
Mookie Siegel - keyboards/ accordion/ vocals - has toured with Bob Weir's Ratdog, Phil Lesh and Friends, Kingfish and Donna Jean and the Tricksters.
Pete Sears - bass/ vocals - was the bassist and keyboard player for the original Jefferson Starship from 1974-1987, keyboardist for Hot Tuna from 1992 to 2001 and currently performs with Moonalice. Pete has played with Phil Lesh and Friends and appears on their 1999 release, Love Will See You Thru. Pete began his career in England in 1964 and has performed with many artists including Jerry Garcia, John Cipollina, and appears on Rod Stewart's classic early British albums.
John Molo - drums - was part of almost every Phil Lesh and Friends lineup from 1999 - 2009. When the Grateful Dead reformed (after Jerry Garcia's death) as the The Other Ones in 1998, John was a member. He has won a Grammy award for his work as a member of Bruce Hornsby and the Range, who he performed with from 1986 – 1999. He has also toured with Creedence Clearwater Revival founder John Fogerty and currently tours with Moonalice.
