From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a six piece psych-a-funk-adelic-grass band called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since it’s creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of Head for the Hills, Tony Furtado, and Bill Nershi to name a few.
The band got it’s start in 2012 when Patrick Storen and Emily Winter met and started playing music together. A few common fiddle tunes and Grateful Dead numbers later, the two were ready to perform. Searching for the missing link, they enlisted the help of funk master and bass player Derek Abt. In time, young ”river ridin’ flat-pickin” Dylan Ruckel joined on guitar and vocals. With the addition of drummer Carter Colia and banjo/keys and vocalist Tyler Rice, Liver Down the River was formed.
Over the last few years Sugarcane has evolved into one of the top bluegrass-rock bands on the West Coast and is showing no signs of slowing down. A sweet mix of country, Caribbean, blues and bluegrass, the band knows how to pen a thoughtful tune and fill the dance floor in equal measure.
