Achilles Wheel is a California band that blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots Rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia.
Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live free and have a good time… and in the end – hopefully make a difference. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times, the here and now.
The Wheel began 2018 with the release of their 4th studio album “Sanctuary”. From sweaty dance halls to intimate acoustic shows, the band never tires of relating to their audience and will keep playing until the conversation is complete.
“These Sierra Mountain improvisational-spirited rockers never paid much mind as to how other “jam-bands” do it, nor do they let their influences determine their sound.” – The Grateful Web
The Friends of Achilles Wheel Highway Cleanup is a monthly volunteer event dedicated to picking up trash along the road in the band’s hometown of Nevada City. Battle against the rogue litter that inexplicably escapes from people’s cars and you’ll earn a ticket to the next show!

+ Dusty Green Bones band
Formed in January 2014, Dusty Green Bones Band is a five piece electric newgrass group based out of California's Bay Area. Looking to form a "jamgrass" style band, this rowdy bunch of musicians met in the heart of San Francisco. The group consists of: Toby Sanchez-Mahan (acoustic guitar, vocals), Dustin Brown(acoustic and electric mandolin, vocals), Isaac Cantor (banjo), Scotty Brown (electric bass, kala u-bass, vocals), and Jon Ryan (drums). By taking musical styles from a wide variety of genres and mixing them with the high energy of hard-driving bluegrass, they have created a purely organic sound. Their music aims to expand the authentic complexity of traditional bluegrass by layering ancient tones with improvisation and rock n' roll. These ambitious musicians live to ramble across the country playing hand-crafted shows while creating an undeniably magical experience for their fans. Their music is progressive with an indisputable raw aesthetic as the band dares to push the musical envelope, tenaciously defining their own individual style. DGBB continues to build a following by maintaining a consistent tour schedule. Come enjoy a nightcap and boogie down with the Dusty Green Bones Band at any one of their upcoming shows.
