      Terrific show in every way! Those two kids were great, the sound was terrific, and the video was adequate for sure. Plus, THE WHOLE show worked! No blackouts, sound issues, or video hassles. AND the dog was great!!

      Phil is a good friend of mine and Powder Bears has a deep place in my hear, so for me it is good to find this place to come to. The sound is some of the best I've heard on Concert Window and Melody and Jacob put on a great show. Thanks for presenting them with this venue!

      Would prefer the sound be completely muted until show time. Which I did on my end on my computer. I stuck around for 2-3 songs. My 3-star rating is based upon the noise level prior to show time.

Formed in 2011 as a collective of the Bay Area’s finest young acoustic talent, Adam Roszkiewicz, Jacob Groopman, Jordan Klein, Leif Karlstrom, Melody Walker and Zach Sharpe joined forces to play a monthly gig with friends in San Francisco’s Mission District. They quickly found a musical rapport that was open to challenging arrangements, unique covers and original songwriting. Since then they have continued to expand their repertoire and push the boundaries of bluegrass on the national scene. In 2012 they won the Rockygrass band competition in Colorado and followed up in 2013 with a win at Telluride becoming the third band in history to win both contests. Also in 2013 lead singer Melody Walker won the Chris Austin Songwriting competition at Merlefest and mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz was nominated for Grammy for his work with the Modern Mandolin Quartet on their album "Americana".

2013 and early 2014 has seen Front Country break onto the national scene with festival performances at Rockygrass, Old Settlers Music Festival, Wintergrass, Grass Valley Bluegrass Festival and many others along with headlining performances at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. In addition to performances at Telluride, Summergrass and IBMA's Wide Open Bluegrass Festival, 2014 will see the release of their highly anticipated debut album "Sake of the Sound" in September. Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters says of the album "Front Country have arrived, the latest acoustic ambassadors to emerge from the California coast. This first album will certainly serve them well, meeting all the technical criteria without getting lost in, focusing instead on the substance of these great songs. They represent their roots well, both musical and geographical, but the door is clearly open to transcend both. With 'Sake of the Sound,' Front Country are well on their way"

"Front Country draw on the ever valuable lessons of bluegrass while making music that is distinctly their own........Front Country have arrived, the latest acoustic ambassadors to emerge from the California coast" Chris Pandolfi (Infamous Stringdusters)

"Front Country's willingness to stretch the bluegrass boundary while maintaining the acoustic integrity of the music will solidify them as one of the top new bands on the acoustic / bluegrass scene" Woody Platt (Steep Canyon Rangers)
