Landscape (Zack Sumner)

The good people over at Paste Magazine are premiering our newest video today: Brothers!

It’s so new I can’t even show it on our own site yet!  I can tell you that there is boxing involved.  And a new haircut for Gio.

So go on over and check it out with the magazine, and enjoy some old-timey fisticuffing action!

Hardly Strictly 2015 — Time of our Lives



Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival was the greatest show we ever played. There is no describing how it felt to see and hear so many friends, family & fans shouting and dancing along to our songs in that huge crowd of people. We nearly pooped ourselves with enjoyment after that one and that feeling is going to last a long time. Thank you San Francisco! And thanks to Sterling Munksgard for the photo.

New Year’s Eve 2015 – Petaluma, CA


It’s gonna be a hometown NYE throwdown. Opening will be our good buddies Frankie Boots and the County Line. They are badass. This is our only show for the rest of the year and we’re pulling out all sorts of surprises and awesome lil’ tidbits for this one. Get your tickets early before they be gone –

Huey Lewis & the News


We made a video recently of a song we really like – “I Want a New Drug” by Huey Lewis & the News so we decided to send it to him. Well…he got it…and he posted it online…and then we all pooped ourselves. Major childhood dreams are coming true right now.

Check it out!

The Return to an Old Love – Slim’s in SF


Back in the day, before the days of string slinging all over the country, I (Ben) used to have a “day” job…which was really a night job. At this job I worked security (yep, that’s right) at a music venue. Mostly, it was tame, but occasionally we had to put people in headlocks and one time I even got bit by a patron and had to go to the hospital. I’ll tell you about it over a beer sometime. That club was Slim’s in San Francisco. Friday, August 28th, we return to this bastion of the SF music scene…to take over the stage where I saw some of the worlds biggest bands before they got huge…and some bad bands that never went anywhere.

I can’t wait. That place holds a special place inside of me, filled with wonderful memories. We have a really great show in store for you all. We hope you’ll join us.

Also, check out this trippy poster that Lili Arnold made for us.
