Rooted in Northern California, the seed for the Thirsty Ground Band was planted during covid when Brett and Kayla gave porch concerts for their neighbors who were locked down and craved live music. As the world began to wake up, Alex joined in. One day, rehearsing in Brett's living room, it began to rain. It was the first rain in a long time. The name for the trio was born: Thirsty Ground.
Brett, Kayla and Alex are seasoned musicians who bring decades of musical sensibility and finesse to their music. As Thirsty Ground, they first choose well-written songs, then give them their own twist and blend sounds from their seven instruments. Brett lays down the groove on his fretless fender jazz bass. Kayla fills out the rhythm switching it up between guitar, ukulele and cajon. Alex decorates with lead acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin and banjo. This provides the foundation for their rich harmony vocals. Drawn to Americana and bluegrass styles, the resulting sound is like sweet tea on a hot summer's night...with a
hint of whiskey..
Thirsty Ground plays at upscale restaurants, brewpubs, wineries and private parties in Marin and Sonoma.
Trivia: The band was the 1st-place winners in Sebastopol's 2022
Apple Blossom Parade.
