Doors open at 7 p.m. and showtime is 7:30 p.m. "This eclectic quintet ventures where few acoustic groups have gone. The music made by The Waybacks ... features some of the most exotic settings for mind- blowing picking you'll ever hear. These guys are extraor- dinary musicians, and their spellbinding solos will leave you slack jawed. They call their music 'acoustic may- hem.' I call it sheer genius," writes Michael Miller of General admission is $25 per person. Plumas Arts members may purchase an advance-sale-only discount admission ticket at $20 each. Tickets and Plumas Arts memberships may be purchased online at, by calling 283-3402 or visiting the Plumas County Arts Gallery.

At the door, all tickets, if the show is not sold out, will be $25. The performance is being made possible in part by a music-industry antitrust settlement, the California Arts Council, a state agency, as well as the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The Waybacks repertoire is touched by Memphis soul, honky-tonk, Parisian swing, classical music, vintage blues pop and original tunes penned and performed by songwriters and singers James Nash and Warren Hood. They draw freely from the old school and the old world, but The Waybacks are no BEST Burgers in Chester First lllhursday of every mmCd~ "Martini Madness" Almanor Bowling throwback. They've been erroneously pigeonholed as a bluegrass band and celebrated as purveyors of "acoustic mayhem." They are as uninhibited and unpre- dictable as the eclectic San Francisco Bay area that claims them, and for nearly a decade, their experiments have always proven sharp- witted and musically dazzling. They're living proof that in music anyway, evolution and intelligent design are entirely compatible. "The whole spirit of improvisation that's always been the cornerstone of this band for me," says founding singer, songwriter and guitarist James Nash. "Through all the stylistic changes and regardless of the instruments we're playing, to me the fun of this band has always been that in some ways I can do whatever I feel like doing at any moment." They've been through changes for sure. Now a four- piece with a full arsenal of acoustic and electric instru- ments, The Waybacks are re- leasing "Loaded,~'~'~he boldest, rangiest and most exciting album of their career. Pro- duced by Nashville bassist, composer and consummate sideman Byron House, it's a musical rebuke to anyone who would typecast true artistry. The folk and roots under- pinnings that have long been a Waybacks hallmark are still there, but after years of play- ing a huge range of venues and festivals, touring with Grateful Dead founder Bob Weir, and reconfiguring themselves around the hot guitar of James Nash and the ~iddle virtuosity of Warren Hood, The Waybacks are en- joying a refreshed repertoire. Nash and Hood have stepped forward as songwriters, allowing The Waybacks to assemble their first project of entirely original music. They're finding a new collec- tive voice, right before our ears. Besides Nash, the Way- backs include drummer Chuck Hamilton, bass player Joe Kyle Jr. and the newest member, fiddler and mandolin player Warren Hood. "I just thought they were all very talented players," says Hood about his attraction to The Waybacks.
