About Diggin Dirt:
Reminiscent of James Brown, and Sly and the Family Stone, Diggin Dirt, is a band that is very well known around Humboldt County and the Pacific Northwest for uniquely blending together their influences that range from funk to blues to reggae to psychedelic-rock, to make something that is all together new and old sounding, in the best way possible. Diggin Dirt are an 8 piece band with tight horns and an even tighter rhythm section and they never fail to keep the dance floor moving all night long. Excitement, top notch stage presence, and high quality original songs are sure to be delivered in more than adequate dosages with Diggin Dirt on stage. Whether you intend to or not, Diggin Dirt will have you moving from your head to your toes if you happen to find yourself in the same room as this extremely funky powerhouse of a band.
About Company Grand:
Company Grand was started in the Summer of 2014 by Lucas James and Riley Winslow. These two provide exciting, and eccentric song writing, and electrifying musicianship and keyboard and guitar, respectively.
They rhythm section is rounded out by Tyler Cranor (Bass), Patrick Ondrozek (Drums and Keys), and Mesham Jackson (Drums and Percussion). All three studied music and universities across the country, and combine their diverse musical backgrounds to create the most exciting dance grooves you'll hear. Our horn section starts with Keemun Senff on trumpet, Dan Flagg on Trombone, and Steve Prazek on Sax and Flute. Again, all three are university trained and have played in orchestras and bands for decades. The combination of all of these talented and diverse musicians come together to create the unforgettable experience that is Company Grand.
