Gerle Haggard Band

Gerle Haggard Band is a seven-piece, all-female tribute that brings the best of Merle Haggard's timeless music to audiences who have been loving songs like Mama Tried, Misery and Gin and Working Man Blues for nearly five decades as well as introducing these and many more classics to a whole new audience.

Founding member Maria Callahan had a dream one night that she was in an all-female Merle Haggard tribute band called Gerle Haggard. She woke herself up laughing and decided she had to put it together.

Callahan remarks: "The best thing about playing Merle's music is that his songs continue to stay relevant . . . the hardest thing is trying to decide which of his hundreds of songs to work on next!"






Indie Folk



After taking home the grand prize win at Buskerfest (Long Beach's largest and longest-running battle-of-the-bands competition) and being named "Best Folk Act" by the OC Weekly, the on-stage bandmates and off-stage girlfriends of Glitterfox (formerly Bearcoon) made a bold decision: to sell 95% of their possessions, quit their jobs, give up their apartment, and begin touring the country full-time. 


The duo spent the next two years living in their Chevy G20 van, touring the country full-time, and making appearances at some of Southern California's most noteworthy festivals - Joshua Tree Music Festival, Music Tastes Good, and multiple appearances at the Long Beach Folk Revival Festival.


Glitterfox has released two studio albums, the first of which, El Guapo, reached the #1 spot on's "Hot New Releases" list and would later go on to be voted "Long Beach Album of the Year." Summed up best by Live Rock Gig: "El Guapo is a collection of poetic lyrics combined with spellbinding harmonies... a profoundly heartfelt collection of recordings."


Glitterfox is currently finishing up their third studio album with plans to release in September 2019.
