Influenced by the Appalachian string bands, as well as their own Central California country roots, The Old Tire Swingers play a style that's somewhere between old time, bluegrass, and country, resulting in a set of traditional tunes plus their own blend of music. Although much of the music they play is hard driving old time music, fans of bluegrass, country, acoustic, folk, and Americana are sure to find something they will enjoy in the songs.

When Paul Chesterton first heard bluegrass music back in 2003, he fell in love with the banjo. He soon purchased his first banjo and started teaching himself how to play it. At a local bluegrass festival, he learned the claw hammer style at a pickin' workshop, and after spending a couple of years focusing on his style and writing songs, Paul put together a hard driving, old time string band. Joined by Nick Kennedy on guitar, Frick Dau on upright bass, and Nathanael Felon on mandolin.

Oka Vanga are a ‘high octane’ guitar duo that combine a complex fingerpicking style with musical influences from around the globe. Their music is a melting pot of melodies woven tightly together with unity and precision, and their energetic style of playing is a perfect match for their intense style of music.
