Chief Greenbud is back!
The popularity of Chief Greenbud’s music has allowed him to build his audience with almost no outside promotion or advertising. His fan support and talent have led to (8) eight “Marijuana Music Awards” and (3) three “High Times Magazine Doobie Award” nominations as well as packed concert venues and music festivals across the country. Chief has performed at the world famous Viper Room, Cannabis Business Awards, and many 420 festivals including but not limited to: Seattle Hempfest, Hashbash/Monroe Street Fair and Las Vegas Hempfest.
His style has been described as “Cheech and Chong” meets “Jimmy Buffett”, and once you hear the catchy melodies and insightful lyrics, you will...for more info: http://chiefgreenbud.com
understand why he is a crowd favorite wherever he performs. Even though his music is classified as country, Chief has only performed with rock, rappers and reggae artists such as Afroman, Taco & Da Mofo’s, Dizzy Wright, Jelly Roll, Too Short and ABK (Anybody Killa). Chief is an unique, humorous, novelty act that cannabis lovers with various genre preferences love his stoner tunes. more
Featuring the uber-talented Dixon's Violin You've never heard violin like this! The world's premier visionary violinist, Dixon's life mission is to inspire people - and he has done so across North America, including giving three TED talks/performances, over ten years at Burning Man, plus radio, TV, and film appearances. A former technology leader and symphony violinist, Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream full-time, and invented a whole new music genre. Dixon now improvises on a 5-string electric violin with a looping system he developed to create an all-live one-man symphony, guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation. more www.facebook.com/dixonsviolin
The Muggs are a three piece blues rock band ala Rory Gallagher, ZZ Top, James Gang, etc.
The Muggs formed in February of 2000. Guitar player Danny Methric and Bass player Tony DeNardo were playing in two bands at that time: The Detroit Underground Blues Band and Fat Belly Brown. Danny was hanging out at The Music Menu in downtown Detroit when he ran into Matt Rost, a local drummer that had actually been in Fat Belly Brown for about two weeks before leaving, as he decided his band workload at the time was too heavy. They got to talking and Danny found out that Matt had just quit his main project, The Immortal Winos of Soul. Danny mentioned that he was looking to do something different than Fat Belly Brown, something more "bluesy", and Matt said he'd be interested.
