Pete Sawyer and The Left Hand Monkey Wrench Gang took Northern California by storm in 2022, offering high-energy renditions of Grateful Dead classics and deep cuts. Every show features a unique setlist played by Pete Sawyer and a rotating cast of the Bay Area’s most accomplished interpreters of Grateful Dead music. Walking a middle path between bands that seek to sound exactly like the Dead, and bands that sound nothing like the Dead, the LHMW Gang connects to the Dead’s sound and vibe, while still taking the music somewhere new.  Featuring Nate LaPointe (Cubensis, Bobby Womack), Eric Levy (Garaj Mahal, Night Ranger), Anna Elva (Mark Karan, Stu Allen), Murph (Stu Allen, Poor Man’s Whiskey), and Jenifer Freebairn (Woodworkers, Aardvark).

Brightshine’s album, The Wire, was born out of quarantine, a period that proved to be creatively fruitful for the band. During this time, their funky style incorporated energizing rock-based sounds. Brightshine’s expressive playing, and scintillating, deeply musical improvisations showcase Sawyers’ stylistically diverse compositions and feature unusual and masterfully executed harmonic structures that are adorned with deep, multi-layered lyrics.
