The “brain child” of Wil Roberts – (wilrobertsmusic.com)
“Well I tried to get a band with this name off the ground in Vail, Colorado a number of years ago and due to distractions and life changes it never happened. I’ve always liked this band name and after partnering with singer Jackie Turner here in the south bay I’ve launched the name, with a band of course, again!
I’m on bass guitar in this band with some contribution on keys and acoustic guitar. The vocals really kill with this line up. Dana Withers, Jackie Turner and myself all switch off on lead vocals while the harmonies never seem to stop. Miles Pruitt is a rock solid drummer and tons of fun to play music with. My favorite part of this band though is the over all fun we have each time we get together to play music.”
Scotty & The Barrelmakers: Saturday April 16th @ 7pm
Scotty & the Barrelmakers is a Santa Cruz-based Americana jam band led by Bay Area veteran musician Scott Cooper. The band showcases Cooper's songwriting with jams that build in dynamics culminating in climactic jams. Cooper is familiar to many through his work with the China Cats, Gary Gates Band and others. Cooper's first CD reached #5 on Relix magazine's jam band radio charts and the follow-up "Batik in Blue" has just been released to more great reviews.
For those who have no fear of original music!
Fans of Tedeschi Trucks, Little Feat, the Radiators, Grateful Dead, Ry Cooder, David Lindley and String Cheese Incident will appreciate the band's songs, grooves and jams.
The band includes former Dark Star Orchestra drummer Mark Corsolini, lap steel genius Scott Walker, versatile veteran bassist Terry Shields, and pianist Lachlan Kane who also contributes original material and stellar harmony vocals.
