Fingerstyle Guitar arrangements of all your favorite songs.

Mikey is a Fingerstyle Guitar Player native to New York, currently living in Santa Cruz. Playing bass and melody at the same time, you might think he was playing two instruments at once. Though he plays mostly Jazz and Blues, all genres are fair game at his performances and all of his songs are constantly revamped as he grows as a player. You can find him playing on the regular at Farmers’ Markets and busking downtown throughout the bay area.

Deep Fried – An empire of sun-drenched beats and cozy, tripped-out jams

Starting with a home brewed digital instrument, Peter Chester and Robert Vance Cross III met in college and dived deep into a nerd-gasm of sound. In the electronic music program at UCSC they were trained in the ancient arts of midi and audio geekery. Classes led by the unique teaching stylings of Peter Elsea were fueled by coffee and gummy bears with sessions often lasting long into the night and into the next day.

Using Cycling 74’s MAX/MSP, Peter built a custom looping patch, called the “cuisNart”, a live collaborative music production instrument. Often catching guest artists off guard, the recording process the songs take form in a very organic often slowly unfolding pattern that often lends itself to an extended jam session. These live jams are then remixed retouched and edited down to the most delicious and unique moments of the performance. The creme de la creme.

After nearly 10 years of playing together and perfecting the cuisNart approach to songwriting they still have no idea what the hell their doing, but somehow their sound is just as fresh and vibrant as the first day they jammed together.

Whiskey West

Whiskey West combines the sounds of outlaw country, bluegrass and honky tonk to create an edgy toe tapping, good time acoustic honky-tonk sound. Kinda like if Johnny Cash & June Carter adopted a freight train, gave it some acoustic instruments and a drum kit asked Tom Waits to conduct the combo and said “play something that swings.”

This 100% homegrown, local band brings influences from traditional bluegrass, post punk, ragtime, to alt-county genres.
