3rd Annual Halloween Bash with The Sextones
From the high deserts of Nevada, The Sextones have emerged with their debut album, Moonlight Vision.
Moonlight Vision is a diligently crafted work showcasing their distinctive brand of soul music with smoked out guitar riffs, growling bass lines, commanding drums, sticky organ comping and honest, but catchy vocal acrobatics.
The release of Moonlight Vision is the first step forward for a group that has already accomplished what most musicians spend a lifetime trying to achieve –touring across the nation and sharing stages with the likes of Macy Gray, Ziggy Marley, and Charles Bradley, as well as working with renowned funkologist Alan Evans of Soulive.
The mighty band is formed from acclaimed west coast musicians, Mark Sexton (guitar/vocals), Alexander Korostinsky (bass), Daniel Weiss (drums), and Ryan Taylor (keys).
The Sextones have musical chops beyond their years and Moonlight Vision shows how well- versed the band is across musical styles. The members have been touring since they were minors in high school, and now continue to spread the sound with The Sextones.

Jelly Bread New Year’s 2022
Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a nationally- touring, powerhouse quintet that delivers a high-energy, chameleonic playlist all over the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.
Here, There & Everywhere was mixed by renowned engineer/producer Justin Phelps (Cake, Galactic, Fruition, The Mars Volta, The Neville Brothers, and Dead Kennedys among many others). Jelly Bread has performed direct support for the likes of Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Moe, Rusted Root, JJ Grey, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), The Motet, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Pimps of Joytime, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Allen Stone Band, Orgone, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Carolyn Wonderland, and The California Honeydrops. The band has also appeared at premiere festivals including the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, High Sierra, Joshua Tree, Strawberry, and Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza.
Jelly Bread is Dave Berry – guitar/vocals, Cliff Porter – drums/vocals, Alvin Johnson – keys/vocals, Ian Lindsay – bass/vocals, and Kevin Russell – lead guitar

420 Celebration with Pato Banton
Memberships and ticket sales will go on sale later
Patrick Murray, Birmingham, England. Murray’s unusual stage name came from the Jamaican patois for ‘wise owl’ (Pato) and disc jockey slang for a ‘heavyweight DJ’ (Banton). He first came to the public’s attention in 1982 on the Beat’s Special Beat Service album, duelling with Ranking Roger on ‘Pato And Roger A Go Talk’, before releases on the Fashion Records and Don Christie labels.
His debut single, ‘Hello Tosh’, was a novelty take on the Toshiba advertising campaign of 1985. His first long-playing effort saw him paired with the wizardry of the Mad Professor, a combination to which he would return four years later for the Recaptured set. On his solo debut Banton was backed by the Birmingham-based Studio 2 house band.
Throughout, he coloured his Rasta toasting/dub with comic impersonations of the characters populating his songs. Since then, his records have leaned progressively towards pop and soul, blurring the dividing lines between Jamaican toasting and American rap. For 1990’s Wize Up!, which contained an unlikely alternative radio hit in his cover version of the Police’s ‘Spirits In The Material World’, Banton was joined by David Hinds of Steel Pulse.
