The Brothers Comatose
Whether traveling to gigs on horseback or by tour bus, Americana mavens The Brothers Comatose forge their own path with raucous West Coast renderings of traditional bluegrass, country and rock ‘n’ roll music. The five-piece string band is anything but a traditional acoustic outfit with their fierce musicianship and rowdy, rock concert-like shows.
The Brothers Comatose is comprised of brothers Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals) and Alex Morrison (banjo, vocals), Scott Padden (bass, vocals), Philip Brezina (violin), and Greg Fleischut (mandolin). When they’re not headlining The Fillmore for a sold-out show or appearing at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the band is out on the road performing across America, Canada, Australia, and hosting their very own music festival, Comatopia, in the Sierra foothills.
April of this year is finding the band touring Latvia and Lithuania as cultural ambassadors for American Music Abroad, which is run by the US State Department with the goal of sending American artists all over the world as a cultural exchange program. The band toured China in 2018 under the same program.
The remainder of 2019 will see the Brothers Comatose hitting the studio to record on their fifth studio album to be released on AntiFragile Records.
Cheyenne Skye & The Tasty Cakes
Cheyenne Skye & The Tasty Cakes are an upbeat folk/rock band from Santa Barbara, CA. The Tasty Cakes deliver a delicious blend of humor, romance, funk & feel-good grooves. As a four-piece band, percussionist Brian Coe adds a rhythmic backdrop to complement Cheyenne Skye’s intricate vocal & acoustic guitar melodies while Geoff Levy (Spoonful, No Simple Highway) drops hypnotic bass lines that invariably make booties shake. To put the sonic cherry on top, Arwin Hojjati's lead electric guitar tastefully fills in the gaps to round out the band's unique sound. Their first full-length album, Curveball Wednesday, can be heard on all streaming platforms.
