Tortesia is a multi instrumental group composed of 4 epic tone wizards. Mastering their craft by ear mainly, they have an assortment of tricks, riffs, and orchestral originals. The two Ned and Ward dawgs Johnny G and Emmet Griffin play a wide array of genres blues psychedelic folk n bluegrass and are influenced by folks like Stevie Ray, Marc Knopler and Dire Straits and Billy Strings. But that’s not all. The talent of the cello player Marty Bruck and Dylan Carter should be put on a pedestal!!!!$$ with bass styles drawn from the magic of Les Clay Pool and Stanley Clarke. As for our wizard Marty, his newfound passion and ability for the cello and keys add a unique and unforgettable feel to our team. These guys do a little of everything!!! A band of gypsies you could say.

Overcooked Tamales:
Overcooked Tamales is a singer-songwriter duo fusing beauty and groove from their jam lab in Boulder, Colorado. Drawing on inspirations such as Tom Petty, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Billy Cook, and The Wern Brothers, Overcooked Tamales’ spellbinding sounds weave rock, folk, and ska into a musical quilt you can wrap yourself in to dance or to ponder. Guitarist Tom Overmann’s tight rhythms and stanky riffs flow like a river on which vocalist Alli Cook floats majestically like a swan. Tune into our wavelength, crunch our granola, and be on the lookout for their EP coming in Fall 2024!
