Music on the Green, brought to you by The Mariposa County Arts Council and its many fine sponsors, continues into the second weekend of great music featuring Green Machine on Friday, June 10 and the debut of Pathetic Honey on Saturday, June 11.
Green Machine has become a staple of Music on the Green, bringing authentic and original Reggae music and attitude to the Art Park stage for 13 years now. Recognized throughout California as the real deal, they are veterans of festivals and concert stages from the foothills to the coast, providing a feast for the eyes with their light show, and for the ears with their trance-like Reggae jam sound, complete with sound bytes.
We are thrilled to present the long awaited debut of Neil Young’s Broken Arrow Ranch neighbors, Pathetic Honey in a special performance Saturday evening. Born in 1997, Pathetic Honey quickly became the area’s favorite “Ranch House Jamband,” growing a dedicated following, from La Honda to the Bay. They have been playing extensively on the Peninsula and in San Francisco ever since, gathering new fans at every show.
The band selects from both acoustic and electric instruments, often blending the two in an irresistable mix of impressively creative songcraft and inventive musical exploration, playing good time rock-n-roll, folk-rock, country (think New Riders of the Purple Sage, or Buffalo Springfield) and other genres.
Pathetic Honey’s music reflects the Bay Area music scene of years past; the psychedelic rock and folk rock music of yesterday’s San Francisco echo in the sounds of their unique style and tight vocal harmonies.
There’s a warm feeling at a Honey show; come see why we’ve been trying for years to bring them to the Art Park stage. The band’s wonderful CD will be available at the show.
All performances begin at 7 p.m. at the Mariposa County Art Park, located on Hwy. 140, in historic downtown Mariposa.
The shows are free to the public, but tips for the performers are solicited, encouraged, and appreciated.
