“The Fenian’s”   Ticket link

 Tickets: Adults-$20, 7 to 14-$10 in advance only (No door sales)

For nearly two decades now, The Fenian’s have delivered their potent mix of traditional Irish folk and good old rock n roll all across the USA and Ireland. With an ever expanding set of original creations, as well as contemporary and traditional tunes plucked from the panoply of the genre, these five lads put on a live show that is second to none. Their foundation is decidedly Celtic, but there is no mistaking the complimentary influences of Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, and World music. Through their music and voices, sweet and sorrowful; brave and beautiful; angry and amused.

Since 1990,The Fenians have garnered an impressive list of accomplishments and honors, headlining theaters and festivals across the U. S. and Ireland, including: The House of Blues, The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas, The Milwaukee Irish Fest, Chicago Gaelic Park Irish Fest, the Dublin OH Irish Festival, Cleveland Irish Fest, as well as The Quays and Whelans, two of Ireland's premiere live music venues, to name but a few. They are two time winners of the "Best World Music" category at the Orange County Music Awards, and were listed as one of the top 50 bands of the decade by the Orange County Register. In 1999, The Fenians were inducted into the Guinness Wall of Fame.

“Whiskerman”    Ticket link

Tickets: Adults-$20, 7 to 14-$10 in advance only (No door sales)

Whether entranced in a ballad or clawing out some frenzied rock and roll, Whiskerman is seeking the heart of the matter. Lush instrumentation combined with front man Graham Patzner's profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Patzner’s voice, both smokey and soaring, leads a passionate live show as the band’s classic rock sound seamlessly cascades through realms of bluesy devotion, psychedelic melancholy, and twangy celebration. Whiskerman's shows tend to set spells, either sweeping the audience up in revelation, or dropping them into knee-slapping frenzy. Their latest release is Champions, a sprawling double-album masterpiece that takes the listener on a hero’s journey through barroom rock n’ roll, blue eyed soul, pastoral folk, workingman’s blues, and rainy day ragas.​

Joining Patzner (vocals, guitar, violin and piano), is Will Lawrence (bass and mandolin), and Charles Lloyd (guitar and sitar), Dan Schwartz (drums), and Trevor Bahnson (guitar). 

"When they're revved up, Whiskerman sounds like a gospel and soul band that can make you feel like raising your hands in the air in praise of its talent. In their quieter songs, there's a storytelling vibe with intricate melodies." (SF Chronicle)​

“On Champions Whiskerman present ecstatic psychedelia, sturdily constructed pop-rock, pick-and-grin folk all together as a single picture.” (Flood Magazine)
