Rusted Root roared out of Pittsburgh in the early 1990s with the release of When I Woke, a platinum-selling album that includes the hit, “Send Me on My Way,” featuring the band’s trademark combination of catchy instrumental riffs, multi-layered percussion, and soulful vocals. Their music is fun and full of energy, fueled by a rich mix of intuition, freedom, and virtuosity. Michael Glabicki, the band’s founder, front man, songwriter, singer, and guitarist, cites influences from the Bee Gees to Black Sabbath, Tony Childs to Elvis Costello, as well as Afro Pop, Neil Young, and the Black Keys. “I’m very inspired vocally by anything from Indian to African to Middle Eastern sounds and scales having grown up with a lot of Hebrew music,” says vocalist and percussionist Liz Berlin. The band also includes Patrick Norman on bass and Dirk Miller on guitar. They’ve released seven studio albums and a live album, and appeared most recently on Buy This Fracking Album, with proceeds going to grassroots anti-fracking organizations around the country. “Rusted Root is a state of mind shared and explored by many people – we are a community that supports one another,” Michael says. They’re also a community that boogies with the best of them!


MAD NOISEMAD NOISE is one of the top bands in the Bay Area. “These buskers have brains. Lots and lots of brains,” said the San Francisco Bay Guardian, which named them Best Band the past three years in a row. The SF Weekly has named them Most Hyperliterate Busking Outfit, and the Daily Californian has named them Best Local Band, calling them “an identity crisis with some rhythm.” “Y’all make MAD NOISE!” declared a friendly neighborhood wino when the band was jamming next to City Lights Bookstore in 2010. With Brendan Liu on trumpet, Mogli Maureal on drums, Marica Petrey on vocals and cello, Khalil Sullivan on vocals and guitar, and Chris Weir on vocals and bass, the band serves up a deliciously entertaining musical feast.
