Lunar Landing Fest 2016

We had a great time at the Lunar Landing Fest this year! All the bands sounded great and it was one of the funkiest shows we’ve done this year. Thanks to Tanner Brown from Steady Flow for sitting in on bass! He said it was his first gig playing bass but he seriously killed it! Also Jason Kearney from MELK sat in on keys and murdered it as well! Thanks to everyone that came out!

The Spirit: a Tribute to the Wood Brothers

the spirit2

Our Tribute to the Wood Brothers project formally known as Brainbrothers has a new name. We have decided to go with the Spirit: a Tribute to the Wood Brothers. It seems like a good fit for what we are trying to do with the band. Pony is lead vocals and drums. Jake plays guitar. Roy does backup vocals along with melodica and some backup guitar parts. Then we are joined by Aaron Miller on bass and backup vocals and Mike Miller on slide guitar and backup vocals. Both from the Easy Riders. It is a fun tribute we will be doing here and there throughout the year. I will post the dates on our date sidebar section. Check it out if you’re a Wood Brothers fan!
