Looking for ACOUSTIC and ELECTRIC????? HOMEGROWN SOUNDS, a Sacramento based Quartet, is one of the hottest newcomers to the acoustic/electric music scene in the past 10 years. The band plays Americana, Roots music, Bluegrass/Newgrass, Old-Timey and Classic/Rock, all done with that special Homegrown Sounds style. Our set list includes songs from Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, Allman Brothers, Little Feat, Dave Rawlings, CCR, Grateful Dead, Black Crowes, Daryll Scott, Old Crow Medicine Show, Bob Dylan, Beatles, traditional Bluegrass/Americana, etc. The band consists of John Winger (Bass/Vocals), Richie Scozzari (Guitar/Mandolin/Vocals), Scott McGinnis (Drums and Percussion Instruments), Billy Van Houten (Banjo,Guitar,Octave Mandolin/Vocals) who have all been a part of the Northern California music scene for over 20 years. Our price range for local events would be anywhere from $400-$900 depending on the event, and $600-$1500 outside the area depending on travel/gas, etc.
Homegrown Sounds can be mellower background music for your event or more of a full blown concert with upbeat toe tappin' danceable songs. For certain weddings/venues we can play unplugged if needed.
The band has performed at dozens of weddings, private parties, wineries, fundraisers, corporate functions, festivals, and nightclubs including Fitzpatrick Vineyards, Montoliva Vineyards, Sacramento Brewing Co., The Oasis, Skinner Vineyards, The Ridge, Woodbridge Crossing and many more.
Homegrown Sounds is obviously mellower than a rock band, so if you think this is what you're looking for, we'd love to do it!
We are continuing to build our song repertoire and have over a Hundred more songs each that we are going to add to the list. Have a song request? Feel free to ask and more often than not we might already know it, if not, we are willing to learn songs if provided enough time.
We took a year off and changed some of the members, but we are as strong as we ever were!
