A recent winner of Northern California’s prestigious 2016 Band of the Year Award, hosted by Lake Tahoe’s KTKE, California’s Achilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World Music/Rock and Roll band. The band is recognized for its award winning songwriting, its versatility on numerous stringed instruments and the rhythmic earthquake of two full drum sets. Frequently compared to the Grateful Dead, (they have done Grateful Dead tribute shows), they’ve been burning up festival stages from California Worldfest, Kate Wolf, Strawberry and many more. Their third CD, Devil in the Yard, is generating new interest in the band, with airplay nationwide as well as in Europe. “As expansive and achievement as Devil in the Yard is, their improvisational expertise and interlocked dexterity makes their live shows a spectacular event on their own level. This album is about to make them some new lifelong followers.” (Grateful Web)   FRIDAY,  AFTER HOURS
