2019 Sandpoint Summerfest
Mattox Farm Productions is excited to play a role The Eureka Institute’s 25th anniversary 2019 Sandpoint SummerFest!
Below is the Amphitheater lineup for Friday July 12th and 13th.
Trout Steak Revival -Friday
Since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival it has been a great ride for Colorado’s Trout Steak Revial. Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots evoking its own style of Americana. With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival delivers memorable tunes to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band. Do not miss this opportunity to see this band that is fast becoming the most revered Colorado string band.
Moontricks- Saturday Night
The last few years have been good to Moontricks, mostly because they leave no audience unsatisfied. Their Festival credentials alone are impressive, energizing stages such as Shambhala, Evolve, Joshua Tree, and Atmosphere Gathering to name a few. The 2017 Kootenay Music Awards Artis of the Year, this duo blends electronica with live elements such as harmonica, banjo, and guitar. Every performance is richly unique to wherever their inspiration takes them and the crowd ignites in them, together, getting high on the vibes and lost in the music.
45th Street Brass Band- Friday
It looks like a brass band, but it doesn’t quite sound like one. The style comes more from funk, soul and sometimes hip hop, but having a drum and sousaphone core means that the groove comes first—it often drives song forward—and everything else is built on top. Over the years, 45th St Brass has been made up of some of the best horn section players in the northwest. Now the band features the “electrifying vocals” of Annie J up front, giving it a wholly unique sound and broad appeal.
Them Coulee Boys- Saturday
Allegedly founded at a bible camp, and born in the back valleys of Western Wisconsin, Them Coulee Boys craft a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Somewhere underneath the energy, the exuberance, the wit, and the passion of Them Coulee Boys lies a heart. It's a heart filled with sincerity, honesty, and the will to make the world a better place. This heart is not only evident in every song, but also in Them Coulee Boys as a whole. These songs are meant for dancing, for excitement, but are also for thought, and for the quiet moments. Them Coulee Boys seek to balance the high with the low, the happy with the sad, and the love with pain. It's how we live our lives, and they make music that reflects that.
Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration.
Comprised of Holly McGarry (Sandpoint native), Benjamin Burns, and Chris Bloniarz, this Boston based band can frequently be found performing across the country, playing alongside bands like The Ballroom Thieves, Boy & Bear, Kitchen Dwellers, Sam Moss, The Western Den, John Craigie, Damn Tall Buildings and others.
Spokane’s favorite jam band will be gracing the Forest stage on Saturday night! This 5 piece, lead by the one and only Lucas Brookbank Brown, will keep the energy going late into the night on Saturday with their quality blend of Pacific Northwest jam grass. Do not go to bed early!!!
Sandpoint’s favorite band returns to Sandpoint SummerFest!!! A stand-up bass, mandolin and guitar come together from different backgrounds to create a unique sound. Americana, mixed with a little bluegrass and blues and whatever else is conjured up for the evening performance is what makes BareGrass tick. John (bass), Luke (mandolin) and Jared (guitar) all write their own songs and enjoy performing in and around the Sandpoint, Idaho area.
Stone Could 4- Forest Stage Friday
Since their recent emergence on the Sandpoint music scene Stone Cloud 4 has been pushing the boundaries of what many think is a teen rock group. Writing and composing their own songs, this 4 piece is a rarity in today’s world, they write the music for themselves, exude confidence, and make you want to dance!!!
Support good live music!
Brendan Kelty Trio- Forest Stage Saturday
With roots in Rustbelt sensibilities, Western North Carolina tradition, and the Pacific Northwest wilderness spectacular, Brendan Kelty has cultivated a soulful sound drawn from gritty travel, wilderness living, and personal relationships; simple real and honest.
