-Originally conceived and created in Detroit by frontman, Nick Poulos, after many variations of styles, states and miles of movement, dinnerwiththekids found its grounding in San Francisco when Nick met Michelle Louise and the harmonies fell into place. The two began as an acoustic folk/country duo, but soon attracted other musicians that shared their passion to create a country/bluegrass sound unique upon itself. Hard to categorize, dinnerwiththekids draws on a variety of influences from Tom Waits to Earl Scruggs, Americana to gypsy punk. Every show offers up a unique set from their vast library of original tunes. One minute, they'll make you want to jump up and dance, the next, you just might shed a tear. DWTK shows are an experience you won't want to miss.

-In their self-titled debut, Nate Jones & The Sloe Sippers deliver an EP which draws inspiration from a wide variety of American music. Soulful and haunting songs like "Lori Lee" are anchored perfectly by tracks with a more traditional bluegrass sound such as "The Devil Looks Upon You". Fans will find this album to be a balanced cross section of the music they have come to expect at live performances in and around San Francisco.
Nate Jones & The Sloe Sippers are a San Francisco-based Americana band who met through music. Their folk, blues, and bluegrass influences combine with succulent harmonies to make something pretty special.
Nate Jones hails from the great state of Ohio and came to California to pursue a pro skateboarding career. He has played in several small bands in the Bay Area and now provides the Sloe Sippers with stellar songwriting, guitar, and lead vocals.
Travis Hanna is also from Ohio and has played with many national acts with an emphasis on classic R&B. He contributes his talents on guitar and backup vocals, but also plays bass for local band, The Jilters, and even built his bass from the ground up.
Dawn Roorda comes to us from the Iowa heartland and lends her bluegrass skills on the upright bass and backup vocals. She teaches piano lessons in her spare time and also plays bass for local band, The Saloons.
