Shaky Feelin’, A high energy jam band from Ventura, CA mixing the elements of rock, reggae, bluegrass and funk to create one of the most memorable live shows you’ll ever see! They draw inspiration from bands like Phish, the Grateful Dead, Sublime, the Disco Biscuits, and The Beatles, then deliver an evening of music that can only be described as the Shaky Feelin’ sound. The group consists of Mark Masson (guitar & vocals), Jeff Hiller (bass guitar), Paul Menchaca (drums & vocals), Cameron Probe (drums & percussion) and Franklin Murphy (keys & vocals). The creativity of the band allows for amazing song writing with a “let’s never play it the same way twice” attitude.

Shaky Feelin’ shows are a positive high-energy journey that quickly gets people to their feet, and leaves everyone filled with music, joy, and that… Shaky Feelin’!

LOVE MISCHIEF, Mr. Hat's favorite NorCal jamband on the rise, will host the evening. One of Northern California's freshest new Jambands, Love Mischief is a group of musicians with a united purpose: To pursue a sonic adventure through many musical landscapes in order to open hearts and minds. Founded by Brian Curtin in 2013, Love Mischief's line up consists of Curtin on Guitar and Vocals, Dom Salazar-Turner on Bass, and Gabe Carpenter on Drums and Vocals. The trio format has helped them refine their sound to a clean, tight presentation of the songs, while allowing lots of space for exploratory improvising.

Love Mischief has shared the stage with many amazing musical acts over the years, including: The Mike Dillon Band, Skerik's Bandalabra, Jerry's Middle Finger, and The Higgs. Their genre bending performances include forays into many distinct sounds; Love Mischief seamlessly weaves Funk, Psychedelic Rock, Jazz Fusion, and even Progressive Metal, with free-wheeling Jamband improvisation as the common thread. Love Mischief is excited to explore the world of Jamband music to it's outer edges and beyond!
