JonEmery & The Unconventionals @ Folsom Hotel
The Unconventionals are a Sacramento, Ca. area Alt-Country group blending Country, Folk, Blues & CowPunk to create their own style of American Roots Music. Fronted by NorCal singer/songwriter JonEmery, their sound rides the line of rootsy country/folk and interstellar psyche-rock. Their raucous and inclusive live shows prove they know the rules enough to break them, in a traditionally unconventional fashion.
The Unconventionals are made up of some of the most unlikely of musicians. Mike Bacon (Bass/Keyboards, Recording Engineer) is also, front man, rhythm guitarist and songwriter of Rap/Metal band, "Sour Diesel", JD Vargas (Drums) is also the percussionist for local Bossa Nova Jazz Band "Que Bossa" and the mysterious Steel & Lead Guitarist Bowhall, from parts unknown. Together, they put their individual & complimentary sound in every song and stretch the boundaries of contemporary Americana.
