The Bootleg


Comprised of members of Bicker Stout & Cheesecakes, Papa Smiley and The Brain Bananas, and A Brighter Side, SURCO was formed in late 2015. With numerous musical backgrounds, the quartet experiments with genres of funk, jazz and psychedelia improvised performances, dedicated to make each show completely different and musically adventurous.

Grass Fed Mule

Meet Grass Fed Mule... the Miles Davis inspired indie folk & bluegrass quartet from St. Louis MO. Drawing energy from their river town roots in bluegrass, old-time, blues, indie folk & jazz, the band’s upbeat shows flood the ears with strong vocal harmonies and instrumental finesse, featuring sounds of claw hammer banjo, harmonica & mandolin. Established in 2015, Grass Fed Mule has hit the ground running, playing festivals, touring the midwest, and releasing their debut album “Hay Is For Horses”. While the core of the band is a quartet, don’t be surprised if they gather some of the most prolific pickers around to entertain your ears—GFM has shared the stage with members of Yonder Mountain String Band, Old Salt Union, ClusterPluck, River Bend and many more. "If you like your bluegrass in a jam, Grass Fed Mule should be sweet to your ears." - Columbia Daily Tribune 2016 "The St. Louis act started as a side project for two members of jam-band Acoustics Anonymous, then expanded to enfold a member of Elemental Shakedown. Prog and jazz streams flow into the band’s sound, which displays its members’ sure-handed instrumental prowess." - Columbia Daily Tribune 2016

Here we stand where vibrations fly between people sharing an experience of love and pain. Keepin' the groove true; groove with us and we'll groove for you.


There was a legendary musician who coined a term 'electric church' in reference to the live music experience. The vibrations of the electric guitars, the drums, and the speakers equating to the energy in the room. We all have an appreciation for music, the beautiful sounds that reflect our humanity. The love and pain, wrong and right, hot and cold, day and night. These sounds embody the energy of inspiration flowing naturally as the seasons. Soul, for its heart, its sweet surrender, and joy. Rock, for its raw emotion, epic heights, and foundation. Funk, for its groove, its ass shaking, and mash potatoes.
