Jesse Jay Harris Greg Harris
The traditions of California Country music run through the veins of guitarist and singer songwriter Jesse Jay Harris. Jesse’s musical traditions run deep, his father Greg Harris fronted the Flying Burrito Brothers for years after Gram Parson’s untimely death. Greg worked with many influential musicians during these years including Garth Hudson and Rick Danko of The Band, Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, Sneaky Pete Kleinow of the Burritos and many others.

The influence of hanging around at these shows as a kid is still with Jesse and provides a strong foundation from with to draw, which is why his first solo release is aptly titled “Solid Ground” Jesse has played stages large and small in every corner of the state and elsewhere. The traditions of bluegrass, country, rock, blues, soul, and jazz have always been a part of Jesse’s years of composing, playing, and producing. Jesse is currently focused on writing and producing his own brand of telecaster driven country rock. Currently residing in Los Angeles after a stint in San Francisco, California is still Jesse’s playground, driving up and down the state to play shows as well as tours in Europe and elsewhere.

JayDee Maness played on Gram Parson’s records, was in the ISB band, he was a Buckaroo, and Vince Gills steel player for years. A member of the Steel Guitar Hall Of Fame, a living legend, and and all around great guy. Check out his website

Tommy Keene with a rare tour, celebrating the August 30 release of his new album Behind the Parade
Tommy has a longtime cult following among fans of the musical genre of power pop. Originally hailing from Washington D.C., his 1984 EP Places That Are Gone became one of the year’s top selling independent releases. The EP garnered a four-star review in Rolling Stone, and was voted the #1 EP in the following year’s Village Voice Pazz & Jop Poll. Keene has since recorded and released numerous albums on such labels as Dolphin, Geffen and Matador Records. He has worked with producers T Bone Burnett, Don Dixon, and R. Walt Vincent. He continues to record and tour and recently released an album with Robert Pollard, formerly of Guided by Voices, as The Keene Brothers. His biggest influence is said to be the band Raspberries.
