Dusty Green Bones Band
Formed in January 2014, Dusty Green Bones Band is a five piece electric newgrass group based out of California's Bay Area. Looking to form a "jamgrass" style band, this rowdy bunch of musicians met in the heart of San Francisco. The group consists of: Toby Sanchez-Mahan (acoustic guitar, vocals), Dustin Brown (acoustic and electric mandolin, vocals), Isaac Cantor (banjo), Scotty Brown (electric bass, kala u-bass, vocals), and Jon Ryan (drums). By taking musical styles from a wide variety of genres and mixing them with the high energy of hard-driving bluegrass, they have created a purely organic sound. Their music aims to expand the authentic complexity of traditional bluegrass by layering ancient tones with improvisation and rock n' roll. These ambitious musicians live to ramble across the country playing hand-crafted shows while creating an undeniably magical experience for their fans. Their music is progressive with an indisputable raw aesthetic as the band dares to push the musical envelope, tenaciously defining their own individual style. DGBB continues to build a following by maintaining a consistent tour schedule. Come enjoy a nightcap and boogie down with the Dusty Green Bones Band at any one of their upcoming shows.
Cascade Crescendo, from Portland, Oregon has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk, joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo and high lonesome harmony vocals.
Cascade Crescendo recorded their first studio album in Spring 2016 at The Hallowed Halls in Portland, OR. The album features fiddle player, Allie Kral (Yonder Mountain String Band) on five tracks and a guest appearance by drummer Nick Werth (Yak Attack). Cascade Crescendo is gaining steam, quickly winning over fans across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. They performed at the 2016 and 2017 Northwest String Summit and regularly team up with national touring bands including Hot Buttered Rum, Reckless Kelly, Henhouse Prowlers, Trout Steak Revival, Front Country, Vince Herman, Danny Barnes, and more at venues including the Crystal Ballroom, Star Theater, and Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, and Seattle's Nectar Lounge.
They completed their first national tour in April 2017 across 14 states including Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Indiana. They're stretching their wings again fall with another tour as far east as Michigan, including a run of 8 shows over Halloween teaming up with Horseshoes & Hand Grenades and Kitchen Dwellers!
Cascade Crescendo has... "gained a loyal following with their tightly crafted bluegrass that embraces tradition alongside more progressive, jam-oriented styles." - Glide Magazine
"Folky singer-songwriter songs are blended with complex harmonies, traditional bluegrass and faster, alternative rock beats. What emerges is a cross between funk, jamgrass, Americana and bluegrass—or newgrass, as they call it—a sound you can't help but dance to. " - Source Weekly (Bend, OR)
