The Gravel Spreaders

The Gravel Spreaders

The new album “Metal Hee Haw” is what happens when a metal-head hopped up on moonshine, spite and Hank Williams III uses sweet talk and coercion to coax three musicians into wearing coveralls and playing twang instrumentals of hair-metal covers.

Thus, The Gravel Spreaders was born. Singing lead and slapping the hell out of his trusty Bandit, Bud Hole leads a motley crew consisting of mandolin masher and jaw harpist, Dr. Buck Knife, dobro-slider and gitter-picker, Uncle Mungar, and banjoleer and high-pitched harmonizer, Buzzy “secret sauce” Do-Well through a debut album consisting of 13 songs of lust, remorse, Satan, beer, and the trailer-park hits of yesteryear, blue-grass style. The result: the birth of Gravel-Billy.

With a set list that covers Johnny Cash, Ozzy, Rage Against the Machine and everything in between, the Spreaders remind us that nothing is sacred.

Bud (Tom Beyer), Doc (K.S. Haddock), Uncle Mungar (Mark Ungar) and Buzzy Do-Well (Pete Feltman) are long-time Bay Area multi-instrumentalists who collectively have several albums, movie scores, and San Francisco Fringe Festival awards to their credit.

Yee-hawwwww!

Three Times Bad

Three Times Bad is “a hot new San Francisco string trio born from the soundtrack to the critically acclaimed, transmedia novel badbadbad” (Hood River News) by bandmate Jesus Angel Garcia. The group plays “dirty American roots music” (The Register-Guard). Think: “Epic moustaches and bent bluegrass” (The Source Weekly), blues and country, hillbilly swing and Appalachian rags, Gypsy jazz,story songs, hot singalongs, folk punk, freak preachery and murder ballads from the dark side of lovin' the Reverend's wife on a bed o' cornbread crumbs.

1 Man Banjo

One Man Banjo. A one man show.

A ! 1manBanjo ! show is energetic, incites movement, dancing, the clapping of hands, participation & a couple of sing alongs. Combines old time tunes in a unique rhythmic fashion which is (though at times dark) a vibrant experience. A.K.A. Sean Lee, 1mb has been in developement for over a decade and offers a wide variety of songs, from it's roots in what we call the zig zag blues to banjo funk, swamp glam: progressing into gobbelin music ( www.hobogoblins.com ), and selections from Cheshire rock opera & what we call the Harlequin theory at work. S.Lee sings and plays the banjo in a sloppy rag time rhythm to the beat of a bass drum kick & a tamborine shoe.
