An exciting co-bill show!
From China to Italy, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!
“Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.” Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine.
“The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman’s playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you’ll wonder why more bands don’t have a cellist.” Good Times Santa Cruz
“The group seamlessly careens from blues to bluegrass and rock in a way that really shouldn’t make sense but somehow does.” –LA Times
Coffee Zombie Collective was formed with one thing in mind: bringing music to the people. Our ever-expanding set list sweeps from rock anthems and originals, to old-time standards, and right back through 80’s and 90s hits, all with our distinctive CZC twist. Our live performances energize festivals, light up local street corners, invigorate house parties, and make weddings the boisterous sing alongs they should be.
With our lineup of acoustic guitar, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, upright bass, trumpet, boomslap, and melodica, crowds quickly form and sing-alongs ensue.
