  • Monophonics, bring a unique blend of old school soul/funk and rare groove. They are recognized for their retro sound, style, and approach primarily inspired by late '60s and early '70s artists like The Meters, The J.B.'s, The Crusaders, and Tower of Power. They were awarded SF Weekly's "Best of The Bay" Music award in the Soul/Funk/R&B category.
  • Kapakahi is a high-energy, raggae fusion band that seamlessly blends together pop hooks and reggae with funk and hip-hop. The sound and raw energy of the band moves the listner's body, soul and spirit to dance, party and have a great time.

Ironstone Amphitheatre Murphys, CA - Bob Weir & Rat Dog, Gov't Mule @ 8PM ***WIN RESERVED SEAT TICKETS***

  • There may never have been a band that has evolved more dramatically than RatDog. It began as a laid-back blues ensemble in 1995, but now it has become a snarling rock band that has a fabulous jazz trio at its heart. Of course, all those forms are simply different facets of Bob Weir's unruly musical personality.
  • Big riffs, massive grooves, and expansive improvisations are the hallmarks of Gov't Mule's legendary live shows. Likewise, their well-crafted songs feature larger-than-life characters bearing life's heaviest burdens, performed by four musicians – guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, keyboard player Danny Louis, and bassist Andy Hess – whose powerful musicianship and chemistry along with their tireless work ethic have earned them the respect of their peers.


Friday June 27th & Saturday June 28th

9pm - Boom Boom Room -

Pimps of Joytime **WIN TICKETS!**
  • The Pimps Of Joytime are straight up Funky! What your ears don't tell ya, yo feets will!

And where do I get some mo'?"
