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

San Francisco's premier vibrational connectors, Hibbity Dibbity, have been forging their way into public consciousness since 2012. These "Swamp-funk" pioneers were baptized in the barrel of the blues, and carry forth the spirit. As Mary Lindsay Dickinson, mother of the North Mississippi Allstars describes, "a classy blues strut mixed with 22nd century push!"

Hibbity Dibbity's second album, "Tinctures, Potions & Elixirs", is a swamp-stompin' odyssey; a concoction of psychedelic rock and roll blues described as "Swamp Funk." Recorded in 3 days at Jim Dickinson's Zebra Ranch in North Mississippi, "Tinctures, Potions & Elixirs" captures the band's raw, live sound. Much of the album was written while on tour in the Summer of 2014, and the songs introduce the myth of a telepathic prophet, the Bellyman. With "Tinctures, Potions & Elixirs", Hibbity Dibbity surges forward into new sonic portals, leaving a trail of heavy vibrations in their wake.
