HOMEGROWN with The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men and Sugar by the Pound
TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!
HOMEGROWN - A Benefit for the Santa Cruz Public Libraries Soundswell Local Music Collection
The HOMEGROWN benefit brings together two stellar local bands to help raise awareness of the the Santa Cruz Public Libraries Soundswell Local Music Collection. The SoundSwell project is one of kind in California, allowing library patrons to download and stream free local music with their library cards. This win/win project not only introduces Santa Cruz residents to their new favorite song, it also fairly compensates bands for their music and talent, and serves as a historical local music archive. A model for libraries across the country, our local library once again helps put Santa Cruz on the map as a forward thinking arts destination.
Special Guest Emcee Kim Luke will be handing out great local raffle prizes too!
The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men are a rootsy rock n' roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Every bit as influential as their early surroundings, songwriters Jamie and Kellen Coffis' blend of folk, blues, R&B and straight ahead rock are evidence of an upbringing spent listening to all of the right records from Tom Petty, Neil Young, and The Beatles.
"The Coffis Brothers & the Mountain Men have developed a sound that has an easy rock vibe that's actually hip." San Francisco Chronicle
Sugar by the Pound came together in the Spring of 2014 and is one of the only all-female bluegrass bands, not only in the area, but for miles around. Their combination of traditional bluegrass music, country-style blues, honky tonk, and classical influences hits home with a wide audience.
"The all-female bandAli Steele on banjo, Erin Valdivia on guitar, Cristy Aloysi on guitar and mandolin, and Sarah Farrell Mackessy on bass, with all four sharing vocalsbring a contagious, foot-stomping excitement to their shows, and are known to have fans dancing to and even singing along with the classic songs they cover." - Good Times Santa Cruz
All proceeds from this event benefit the Santa Cruz Public Libraries SoundSwell Local Music Collection, a growing contemporary and historical local music archive that library cardholders can download for free.
