One of the fastest rising folk groups on the Los Angeles music scene, The Storytellers took only one year to go from busking on street corners of Pasadena and Santa Barbara to gracing stages of bars, taverns and regional festivals all over Southern California. The Storytellers draw from the rich canon of traditional bluegrass, country blues, old time and folk music as a basis for inspired improvisations and intrepid vocal harmonies.

The LA Weekly has said of The Storytellers, “This band moves seamlessly through traditional and progressive musical approaches. One tune will echo Doc Watson, the next, Jerry Garcia. They find great joy in folk music and that joy is evident in their performances.”

Their monthly “Folky Fourth Friday” residency at Bon Vivant Market & Cafe in Atwater Village is highly regarded.

The Storytellers bring soulful harmonies, soaring grooves, substantive storytelling and their own hippie, happy magic to every stage they stand on.


The Rattlesnakes is a six strong progressive ensemble performing a distinctly California take on modern Bluegrass. Their original music grows from roots of traditional bluegrass and adds flavors drawn from modern folk-rock and even outlaw country.

Add in a few surprising, tasty covers (Warren Zevon in Bluegrass!?!) and you have the essence of a Rattlesnakes show. Among their number they count current and former studio and TV executives, a filmmaker, a talent agent, a gold record winning band manager, an actual rocket scientist as well as a rumored international spy! They have played dates across California and in Colorado including sold out shows at the famous Molly Malones.

On the heels of dates last year across Southern California and Colorado, including playing on ’top to the world’ at Aspen Mountain, the group recently took second place at the Topanga Banjo Fiddle Festival. Look for their debut EP, Black Blizzard, on iTunes in spring 2019.
