The Sam Chase & The Untraditional & Cedar Teeth

- ALL AGES
The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool.
Hailing from the hills of San Francisco, California, Sam and his band whom he lovingly refers to as The Untraditional, take to stages all over the country with a virulent and frenetic passion which many history buffs might liken to the Norse warriors known as The Berserkers, who were known to have fought their battles with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury. Norse literature notes that they would work themselves into a rage before battle, consuming drugged foods, and dressed in nothing but their enemies blood. The Sam Chase and The Untraditional do maintain that spirit, but leave the drugged foods and enemies blood up to the discretion of the crowd.
Cedar Teeth is a five-piece band hailing from the Cascade foothills of Colton, Oregon. For many years, they have been working together in a shed at the edge of an ancient forest.
A band in the truest sense, the songs of Cedar Teeth come together organically: like a jigsaw puzzle without the box, assembled by many hands. Crafting a sound that blends rough and rustic folk rock with lyrical American roots, the music of Cedar Teeth is drawn from their experiences and sentiments of living on the frontier dividing the wilderness and the city.
