CONCERT LINEUP

JUNE 29: DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS

We're opening the season with a bang. Come out and join us for a wonderful night on the lawn outside PJ's at Gray's Crossing. We expect it to be a packed house and a lovely evening as the Dead Winter Carpenters kick off our Summer Concert Series

JULY 5: COBURN STATION

Truckee-based band, Coburn Station, was formed in 2012 and its members bill their music as 'Mountain Rock'. It most certainly is rock n’ roll, although not of any particular flavor. It’s a mix of blues, folk and psychedelia that speaks to different regional influences. It’s the product of a resort town, a 'mountain town'—and like its creators and so many others who visit and live in Truckee—the music has roots elsewhere.

JULY 13: SAL’S GREENHOUSE

Sal’s Greenhouse is a powerhouse funk collective led by vocalist/baritone saxophonist Sally Green out of Oakland, Ca. Their vibe is fundamentally funk driven, but incorporates soul, rock & R&B to create a sound uniquely their own. Sal’s Greenhouse has supported artists such as Nikka Costa, Orgōne, Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Dumpstaphunk, & more!

JULY 20: MESTIZO BEAT

Mestizo Beat is a collective of musicians based out of Los Angeles who compose and perform music influenced by the early 1970’s era of funk, soul, afro-beat, and afro-cuban genre. Formed by lead guitarist Aquiles “Lito” Magaña along with his brother Gus Magaña on drums. These two would come to share their passion and love for this era of music and become the driving core for the group. One can expect an explosive dance party of heavy hitting rhythms that unify the audience and band into one pulse of love.

JULY 27: SCOTT PEMBERTON

Scott Pemberton’s sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland: freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues roots and the west coast funk. It’s all there, and often all in the same song. Listeners are finding this honest, original and to-the-point music refreshing and fun. The mastery of his guitar playing combined with the fun recklessness of his songwriting show that the rules of songwriting and playing the guitar no longer exist for him. Scott plays with the uninhibited joy and intensity of someone who recognizes that every time we make music is an honor and a gift.

AUGUST 3: TRUCKEE TRIBE

Stan Charles moved to Long Beach in 2001 to earn a degree in music and communications. He played with several groups professionally in the LA area. After graduating, Stan Charles came to the Sierras and formed the band "Truckee Tribe" going on to tour and perform with bands including the Whalers, Reel Big Fish, Eek-a-mouse, and Tosh meets Marley. He is currently living, teaching, performing, and producing in Truckee, CA.

AUGUST 10: BAND OF COMERADOS

Since 2015 and extending far into the future, Band of Comerados plays music that makes you feel good. Call it bluegrass, jamgrass, folk, or indie, what sets the band apart is their intricate instrumentation, dual vocal parts, intense improvisational jams, and the fact that these guys have so much damn fun when they’re playing live music!

AUGUST 17: STILLHOUSE JUNKIES

Born in a distillery in Durango, CO, Stillhouse Junkies play a delirious, head-spinning mixture of original roots, blues, funk, swing, and bluegrass music. With all three band members sharing vocal duties and swapping instruments, the Junkies conjure a wide range of tonal landscapes that pay tribute to the iconic sounds of Gillian Welch, the Allman Brothers, Tim O'Brien, the Wood Brothers, John Hiatt, and countless others while breaking new musical ground with their genre-bending original material.
