Dead Winter Carpenters
-from Lake Tahoe, CA
-Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, CA, americana/roots rock band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance.
Over the past decade, the band has worked hard to position themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what
string music is and what it can do.” That progressive nature shines through loud and clear on the band’s latest release “Sinners ‘n’ Freaks” which debuted on April 24th,
2020. The 5-song EP is DWC’s fifth studio effort and coincided with the band’s 10th anniversary. The release is a celebration of the hard roads previously traveled and
the road that lies ahead. Recorded in January 2020 at Baxter’s Ranch in Auburn, CA, the band found a masterful ally with a keen ear and sensibility in studio
owner/engineer Matt Baxter. Born of an organic, roots based approach, Sinners ‘n’ Freaks rings true to the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The band's fourth studio project, Washoe, is a 12-song collection of originals recorded in Reno's Sierra Sonics Studio (Ozzy Ozbourne, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Collective Soul)
and co-produced by Dead Winter Carpenters and Zachary Girdis. The band's previous albums include the group's 2010 self-titled debut, Ain't It Strange (2012), and the
much-acclaimed Dirt Nap (2014). They also released a single “Roller Coaster” in the summer of 2018 featuring alt-country hero Jackie Green on organ.

Reminiscent of genre-benders like Jack White, Chris Thile, and Sam Bush, Dead Winter Carpenters harmoniously blend refined musical ability with a scarcely restrained
tendency to let it all hang out. The result is a controlled burn, a riveting sound, and a connection with fans that sells out shows and has the band sharing stages with the
likes of Jason Isbell, Easton Corbin, Greensky Bluegrass, Rising Appalachia, The Infamous Stringdusters and Hard Working Americans.

Members include Jesse Dunn (acoustic guitar, vocals), Jenni Charles (fiddle, vocals), Nick Swimley (lead telecaster guitar, vocals), Brian Huston (drums, vocals), and
Jeremy Plog (bass, vocals). A steadily touring band since forming in 2010, Dead Winter Carpenters has entertained growing crowds at notable festivals including High
Sierra Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, California Worldfest (CA), DelFest (MD), Northwest String Summit (OR), Harvest Music Festival (AR), WinterWonderGrass
(CA and CO), Hangtown Music Festival (CA) and more. Dead Winter Carpenters is a band engrained with ambition, talent, and authenticity. Look for them to continue to
delight – and invite – fans from many music camps.

Boot Juice
-from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, CA
-Boot Juice hails from the Hills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. The band features electric and acoustic guitars, three vocalists, bass, drums,
saxophone and trumpet. Inspired by the likes of The Band and Railroad Earth with an intensely energetic show reminiscent of Talking Heads, Boot Juice has been
gaining buzz with their vibrant performances and party-sparking reputation. Shifting effortlessly between driving bluegrass and americana into cosmic rock’n’roll
and swing. They deliver three part vocal harmonies and dynamic instrumental arrangements with a sultry dose of blues and soul. The collective effect leaves crowds
little choice but to shake it down on the dance floor.

Boot Juice has been kicking around the west since 2017, leaving audiences happy, and dance floors sticky. They have kept an ambitious tour schedule, hitting the
road in their 96’ International school bus, constantly adding to their ever-growing resume of festival and club appearances. Founding members Connor Herdt
(acoustic guitar and vocals) and Evan Daly (electric guitar and vocals) have been friends since childhood. The two have been playing music together since their
teenage years, combining their respective passions for americana and rock’n’roll songwriting with a desire to create a big sound that feels right at home in a barroom
or on a large festival stage. Brett Worley (bass wizard) not only holds down the low end, he is also Evan’s cousin and has been touring with the band since the beginning.
Brett’s melodic bass style has become a signature of the Boot Juice sound. Jess Stoll (vocals and artwork) joined the band shortly after, bringing another lead and
backing voice to the group for deeply layered harmonies. She wears many hats for the band, acting as the artistic director for all of the band’s design concepts
and providing the vision and drive necessary for a big production. Billy D. Thompson (drums) has been a staple of the Sacramento music scene for the past decade,
graduating from Sacramento State University with a degree in Jazz Drum Performance. Billy brings his soul and funk influence into the Americana realm, adding yet
another dimension to the band’s sound. In 2019 Boot Juice came into it’s full current lineup with the addition of its horn section. Caleb Sanders (alto and tenor saxophone),
Matt Vollmer (Trumpet and Trombone) and Micah Marmorstein (trumpet) bring an infectious energy and tight horn harmonies to the stage, making it tough not to dance.
It’s not uncommon to see these guys hanging off the rafters or running into the crowd by the end of the night.

Boot Juice plays music that will attempt to bring you to the street corner, the river side, or the open highway. They released their debut LP album, Speaking in Tones,
in May 2019 and followed in March 2021 with their second record, Shifting gears. The group is currently tracking its third LP, which will be released in 2023.

Ginger Molasses
-from Nevada City, CA
-Ginger Molasses plays all original music inspired by 1960s and 70s Blues, Soul, and Rock. They are upbeat and easy to
dance to with magnetic and captivating performances.

honing a dynamic performance before debuting to a packed house at Gold Vibe Kombuchary in December 2023.

The musical prowess of Ginger Molasses is undeniable, a testament to their extensive experience and innate skill that
