Doors open at 7:30pm!

Using a classic rock combo of drums, bass, two electric guitars, and keyboard the band combines lyric driven structures with wide-open areas for spontaneity and daring. The songs themselves tell stories of characters living in a small beachy town in a forgotten piece of California where pelicans fly in the sunrise and bank robbers race through the coastal range at night. Since the tempos and styles of their compositions jump from laid back grooves to New Orleans to train beats to funk…they are hard to nail down into one category. Shane’s songwriting has diverse influences from Paul Simon, Dire Straits, Allman Brothers, Lucinda Williams, Lightning Hopkins, and JJ Cale. Yet, there is nothing derivative about them—they sound unique and have their own Baywood flavored sound.
