California Country is a country sound with a mix of new and old flavors.
Think Merle Haggard joins up with Dwight Yokham and they run across Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean…and all get along playing music together.
The band plays a mix of great covers while slipping in an original song of their own on occasion. From semi rowdy country lyric filled songs to slow smooth ballads California Country is sure to please an audience, especially a dancing audience!
We play everything from huge festivals to casinos, outdoor concerts, Fairs, Clubs to corporate, weddings and private parties.
Last year we were honored to play before Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Billy Currington and more. The festival in Medford Oregon had about 30,000 people that was a treat as was playing for Redding California's Independence day celebration July 4th with 15,000 people.
Front man and lead vocalist Mike Brown has played music professionally since the age of 17. He keeps the rhythm solid on his acoustic and electric guitars, and while all members sing, Mikes voice is the sound that is California Country.
Along with Mike, the rest of the bands members have their own long history in music, playing with or opening for some of the biggest names in the business. Chris Young, Jake Owen and many more. All members have spent their time in the studio recording as well.
California Country always provides a super solid rhythm section of bass, drums, rhythm and lead guitar with true, classic, country leads. We can also offer twin lead guitar players, lap steel and or fiddle. Our fiddle player has toured with absolutely the best pros in the business, living in Nashville for almost 20 years. We can put together the perfect group for you.
The sound is what we affectionately call, California Country.
