The Lauren Murphy Band
Beloved Vocalist/Songwriter Lauren Murphy of ZERO & Lansdale Station fame, returns to Mill Valley with her full Rock Band for one night only. Since relocating to Lower Alabama, Lauren has exploded on the southern music scene with her new band, 'The Psychedelics', playing from Mississippi into Florida, and has been featured numerous times on NBC. Tonight, her West Coast band will deliver high energy rock favorites & originals of the classic San Francisco sound fused with Lauren's southern… swagger. This is guaranteed to be a high energy psychedelic show peppered with power vocals & exemplary musicianship. 'The Southland Music Line' calls her style "Inimitable", going on to say 'In a crowded field of sometimes repetitious music mediocracy, it's refreshing to experience Murphy's gift for originality and soul-stirring performances.' Murphy will be backed by an all star band of Bay Area heavyweights; Vince Littleton on drums( Merl Saunders/ Super Diamond), young guitar prodigy James Harman, Nola born Mike Sugar on bass(Jambay/The Fall Risk ) and special guests TBA. With The Achilles Wheel trio opening the show, we predict a super jam on the horizon. Buy The Ticket, Take the Ride.

Achilles Wheel Trio
Paul Kamm, Jonny Mojo, and Shelby Snow are singer/ songwriters and front men of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel. As an acoustic trio they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence, combining a bit of Country and Bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. The creative partnership shows a cohesive blend of all their influences, but it’s clear right away that �these three songwriters are meant to be working �together. Kamm’s songwriting has been recognized in contests at some of the biggest music festivals in the country, including Kerrville, Telluride and Rocky Mtn. Folk. Before helping to form Achilles Wheel, Jonny Mojo was known in Northern California as a ‘must see’ force of nature on the electric guitar, but his musical voice flows as freely out of an acoustic six-string, dobro, mandolin and harmonica as well. Shelby on the bass is like a river, flowing with a unique ease that ties it all together. In the wake of their breakout performance with Achilles Wheel at the 2012 Kate Wolf Festival and the release of their debut album ‘13 Hours’, Achilles Wheel has released two more studio recordings; ‘Stones To Sand’ and ‘Devil In The Yard’.
