*Band Line-up for the Day will be as follows*

 

*Wood & Wire: “It’s been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the fertile musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they’ve written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire’s “band-style” ethos are not a mystery. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeates their sound. That being said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own.”

*One Button Suit:
One Button Suit is an exciting, Sacramento-based string band with a repertoire of originals and bluegrass familiars hinting at unconventionality.

Band members:
Tim Tobias – vocals, guitar
Tom Shewmake – mandolin, vocals
Melissa Lincoln – fiddle, vocals
Brian Burke – guitar, vocals
Casey Lipka – bass, vocals

*The Rock Ridge Bluegrass Band*
Rock Ridge is a bluegrass band from N. California. Their performances and recorded material include traditional & contemporary bluegrass, some originals, old time country, and gospel music with top notch vocals and instrumentation. The band’s debut CD, Drifter’s Prayer, has received praise and airplay across the US and abroad.

*The Buckhorn Mountain Stompers*
Foot stomping dance music from the Klamath Mountains.
The Buckhorn Mountain Stompers are an energetic dance band from the Klamath Mountains who pull from a variety of traditions, like alt-country, old-timey, polka, jazz, delta blues, – but maintain a unique sound of their own. Our goal is to perform fun dance songs that make people want to get up and strut their stuff. Our shows are hillbilly kitsch; with a disco light, fog machine, other theatric stage props and dance prizes.

*Honeybee jazz*
Sweet Violin and Guitar Jazz from the 1920’s & 30’s
Jazz music was born in America between world wars, an economic boom and a great depression, as an amalgamation of traditional American musical styles. The honeybee is a Northern California jazz duo that captures the sounds and feel of Vintage Jazz in its original vibe – with emphasis on lyrical melody, dynamic harmony, and smooth rhythm using sweet vocals, violin and guitar. Honeybee performs Vintage Jazz tunes in that authentic vintage style – the song is the star!

*The HappBees*
The “Sweethearts of the SMMAF” The HappBees will be back to steal your hearts away this year. These three little Dolls are sure to Pull at your Heartstrings as they play on their fiddles!
