Poor Man''s Whiskey plays acoustic music with a rock-n-roll attitude that fuses bluegrass, blues, reggae, folk and jazz. Through fermentation and distillation, they''ve crafted an original and modern American music that inspires you to move.
Though the exact location of their hideout is unknown, local legends place it somewhere in the backwoods of the wine country, between Pinot vines and a moonshine still, well protected by small arms. Together, they have produced two full length albums: Hunnerd Prood and Train to California and thrilled west coast crowds for three years running.
Poor Man''s Whiskey is known for creating a hoe-down wherever they go. Their music has been featured on KRSH and KGO radio, and they have headlined classic venues including the SF Bay Area''s Sweetwater, Rancho Nicasio and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
How the band came to be...
The band grew organically, from the core of Jason Beard (Mandolin), Josh Brough (Banjo), Gary Neargarder (Guitar) and Tony Robinson (Bass) to include Chris Rovetti (Fiddle) filling out the traditional sound and then Noah Logan (Drums) adding a big beat for dancing. Special guest Eli Jebidiah often joins the band on the Dobro.
A part of the community...
Poor Man''s Whiskey is proud to be an active part of the SF Bay Area community. The band has contributed performances for a number of community and charity organizations, including the Sierra Club, SF Unified Schools, Live Oak Preschool, Ross Recretation District, Santa Rosa Parks and Recreation and Tamalpais High School.
We hope everyone enjoys the music.
