A fantastic co-bill featuring two of the biggest movers and shakers on the indie folk scene.

The Deadly Gentlemen started out a couple years ago as an experimental spoken word bluegrass band, but they've changed the game plan this time around.  Now they mostly play epic folk and grasscore.  Their most recent CD is called Carry Me To Home.


The Deadly Gentlemen are Mike Barnett, Dominick Leslie, Sam Grisman, Stash Wyslouch, and Greg Liszt. Instead of having a lead singer, they use a nonstop orchestration of somewhat unconventional vocals, with everybody in the band doing everything they can. Expect a lot of three-part harmony singing, group shouting, really dense rhymes and an almost rap-like phrasing.

Most of the songs on their new CD are reinventions of traditional folk songs, but you might not notice that if you weren't a big folk music enthusiast.

Formed in May of 2008, Tornado Rider is the brainchild of enigmatic lead singer and cello player, Rushad Eggleston. Brought up on a steady diet of classical, bluegrass, folk, and rock music, Dr. Seuss, Lewis Carroll, philosophy, and the wild and mysterious woods that he frequented, Eggelston's imagination and creativity have always been rooted in art and the natural state of the world.

A Grammy nominated artist, Eggleston worked his way around various instruments including rock and bluegrass guitar, violin, and eventually found a soul mate in the form of the cello. After graduating from Berklee School of Music in Boston with a cello scholarship, Eggleston had his hand in a number of bands, namely Fiddler's Four with Darol Anger, and Crooked Still. In November of 2008, he decided it was time he found his own band; one that would be a vehicle to unleash what was in his head and soul.

After hooking up with friends in the Bay Area, bassist Graham Terry and drummer Scott Manke, Eggleston felt that Tornado Rider was at last complete with the right partners who could not only help him spread his gospel of feeling good and mischievousness but also open their minds enough to embody the very messages of their unique songs.
