Hey there! Our next live show will be as part of the free Village at San Antonio Shopping Center Summer Concert Series from Noon to 2 pm, Saturday June 6. This is a good opportunity to bring some kids to the show and do a little shopping, ice-cream eating, and bluegrassing. We will be in high spirits! Come hear some of the new material we have been working on!

April 4: West Coast Live Radio
We’re looking forward to joining West Coast Live‘s radio program on April 4 at the San Francisco Ferry Building. WCL is a National radio variety show broadcasted Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. ’til noon. And the coolest part is that you can be there!
This is a really fun opportunity to watch a live radio program unfold. We’ll be joining a great cast of artists and musicians that should make for great Saturday morning entertainment. Come early and grab a coffee with us! Or a caramel frappuccino if that’s more your style.
Here’s a Little Video
Things are going great! Had a fun birthday banjo blowout. We have a few shows coming up and a radio spot we’ve been trying to squeeze in for a while. Details to follow.
For now, here’s Foggy Mountain Breakdown.
March 16: Third Annual Banjo Birthday Bash at Amnesia
We’re excited for our third annual banjo birthday bash this Monday the 16th at Amnesia in San Francisco. We’ll be joined by our buddies The Cherry Pickers, who will open the show and will join us for some double banjos and pickin’ and singin’. Amnesia is always a ton of fun and one of our favorite places to play – hope you can make it to join us as we celebrate the birthdays of the Cherry Pickers’ Isaac Cantor and our own Ryan Breen.
Here’s a video of us at Amnesia last month with a couple of special guests.
Don Quixote’s, Felton on March 7
We are really excited about our show on March 7 at Don Quixote’s Music Hall in Felton, CA. Joining us will be Santa Cruz’s own Miss Lonely Hearts bringing their own brand of hard drivin’ honky tonk, as well as our good friends Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin from Grass Valley.
This will be our first time sharing the stage with both acts, and you’ll likely see us in the crowd getting down to their sets. We will be closing down the night, starting around 11 and playing until they kick us out! Be sure to arrive by 9 p.m. to catch Paige – you won’t regret it.
Tickets are $10. Hope to see you there!
Moe’s Alley, Santa Cruz with The California Honeydrops!
We couldn’t be more excited to announce our upcoming show with The California Honeydrops at Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz on Friday, Feb. 13. The Honeydrops are one of our favorite bands and great guys to boot. Here’s a great video of them that gives you an idea of their awesome sound.
Also, we’ll be joined at this show and at our February 16 show at Amnesia in San Francisco by our good buddy and top-notch picker Alex Leach of the Ralph Stanley II band. Alex is our favorite bluegrass radio DJ and also one of the best bluegrass musicians around today, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him visit and play a few shows with us.
In short, the Moe’s Alley show is not one to miss! Hope to see you there.
