Coral Creek is a nationally acclaimed Colo-Caribbean Newgrass band featuring the original music of Chris Thompson. Inspired by the islands and the mountains alike, Coral Creek conjures a unique vibe, delivering big sounds and high-energy shows that appeal to audiences across the newgrass, rock, and jam-band spectrum. Drawing influence from legendary guitarists Jerry Garcia & Tony Rice, don’t be surprised when CORAL CREEK launches into a second line jam with tenor saxophone soaring over organ swells and a rolling banjo. Listen close and you might even hear some steel pan and coqie frogs.
The Blind Pigs, an exciting collaboration comprised of Coleman Smith & Alex Johnstone from the award-winning band Rapidgrass, David Lawrence from The Spoonful & ‘LAPOMPE’, Gary Sloan from The Royal Street Ramblers, and the incredibly talented newcomer & Salida local, Bonnie Lea Culpepper. Their melding sound can’t be nailed down by just one musical genre so be prepared to be amazed by their acoustic wizardry that is certain to leave you wanting more.
