About Edge of the West

Edge of the West

Edge of the West is a Rock n' Roots Honky Tonk Jamband. Their catchy, quirky originals and outlaw hippie sound strikes a chord with lovers of alt-country, Americana & the Grateful Dead. The live shows rock. The group writes original tunes and draws from from a deep well of eclectic covers, never playing the same show twice. The first record, still in play on Americana radio, was released May 2016 and the next is in process. The band features members who also play with Great American Taxi, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Todd Snider, Jefferson Starship & more. When playing together these guys get cookin' and the audience lights up. Just try and sit still.
In 2017 this band of intrepid explorers toured the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest deserts, the Sierras, Alaska and Hawaii, including multiple shows in the big-city markets of Southern California and their own region, the Bay Area. They did two tours featuring as a guest the iconic pedal-steel master Buddy Cage of NRPS, they opened shows for Lukas Nelson and for Hard Working Americans, and played myriad festivals and club dates including top venues such as Terrapin Crossroads and Sweetwater Music Hall. To ring in the New Year, Edge of the West is playing a special New Years show with family favorites the David Nelson Band at the magical River Theater in Guerneville, CA. Then, January 11 - 13 Edge of the West will play a three-night run in Girdwood, Alaska at Alyeska Resort's awesome party palace - the Sitzmark.
Across the canyon we hear drums in the distance. Notes From the underground drift like smoke signals to a strange yet familiar place, where new friends and old come together for good times - the Edge of the West
