The Ike & Martin Band

Live, acoustic, kick-ass classic rock.

June Concert Band

The Ike & Martin Band's diverse background of musical influences and training allows I&M to play Classical music for wedding ceremonies, Light Rock for cocktail hours or private dinners, then Rock and Roll for receptions and corperate events. When you add all of this up, you get a repertoire of over 1000 songs, any of which Ike & Martin can recall instantly.

 

Ike Marr — Viola, Mandolin, Guitar, Banjo, Vocals.
Ike grew up a Southern boy from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Classically trained on viola, he naturally embraced mandolin as well as guitar, bass, banjo, brass and keys. His musical influences include Classical, Americana, Rock and Bluegrass.

 

Martin Shears — Guitar, Foot Bass, Dobro, Harmonica, Vocals.
Martin is a transplanted Englishman who grew up in London around folk musicians. He studied piano at an early age, then guitar, learning every single Beatles song he could: then the Who, then Pink Floyd, then...

The Young Fables

Classic Country and Americana

CLICK HERE to Download the COTG 'Fridge Flyer' for August Concert.


July Concert Band

The Young Fables (TYF) are a country duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and Wesley Lunsford, accomplished guitarist and vocalist. The act hails from Maryville, Tennessee, and has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize at the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium stage at age 16.
Fast forward five years to 2017, TYF spent the year engaging and organically expanding their grassroots following while on the road supporting their debut album release Two. Their fan-favorite “Covering Your Tracks” video series solidified Laurel and Wesley as prolific online performers and a stand out act in Music City. Partnering with CMT, the network exclusively premiered their first single “Completely,” a song that would go on to find regular rotation on video programming.


This year, TYF have wrapped recording on their sophomore album titled Old Songs with the Grammy Award winning producer Mitch Dane. These ten songs establish The Young Fables’ home in the Country/Americana community as a modern proclaimer and preservationist of classic country’s storytelling roots.

Groove Foundry

Eclectic Jazz-Funk-Acid brass attitude and gospel-infused vocals

CLICK HERE to Download the COTG 'Fridge Flyer' for September Concert.


September Concert Band

Groove Foundry features the lead-trio team of powerhouse tenor sax-man Mather, the unique low-brass sizzle of Nak on trombone, and sexy trumpet stylings of Jen Campbell (listen to “World’s on a Leash”). Rounding out leads and providing greazzzy rhythm licks is the experienced blues-funk guitarist, Barry Slayton (heard on such tunes as “Low Rider”). Brian Silverman’s keyboard and organ sounds soar above, below and throughout every old favorite (Santana’s “Oye Como Va”) and newest funk-jazz hit (The Motet’s “Afro Tech”). The rhythm section of freshie-fresh Isaac Freed on his booming bass guitar (heard on Karl Denson’s “Elephants”), and well-respected drum-phenom, Bill Heise add the deep percussive grooves (listen to Nicola Conte’s “Jet Sounds”). Lastly, but firstly, Glenn Campbell brings his gritty and authentic gospel-rooted voice sweeping across the stage and bringing audiences all to their feet. Amen!


After years of performing around the Lake Tahoe and Truckee area, Groove Foundry continues to rock the private parties, weddings, bars/clubs, restaurants and many festivals such as the Squaw Valley Art & Wine Festival, the famed Far West/Disabled Sports Benefit Bash, Lake Tahoe’s Snow Fest, Concerts on Commons Beach and the Truckee Amphitheater… and more!

 

How do we describe our sound? Everyone seems to ask. We think of just simple words and then allow the whimsy of musical divinity to return meaningful associations: Jazz. Funk. Acid. Attitude. Horns. Heavy. Ska. Solid. Sax. Soul. Trumpet. Tight. TOP. Latin. Loose. Bad-ass. Bass. Boom. Fashion. Fun. Tempo. Trombone. Dancing. Dark. Party. Percussion. Guitar. Groove. Greasy. Grit. Kickin’. Keys.
