The Far West is considered by many as Los Angeles's best country music act and here's why: "The Far West takes country music where it should be by now… technically pure, slightly jaded, no-nonsense and honest with stellar storytelling for the every-man." The Far West came together in Los Angeles in early 2010, and have been gigging all across Southern California and the southwest at places like El Rey, The Echo, The Satellite, Pappy & Harriets, Hotel Cafe, Cowboy Palace Saloon, Taix, Silverlake Lounge & many more. They've been winning accolades all along the line from bands and critics in all kinds of genres. "The Far West have an authentically Americana sound that's been described as something like Waylon's band jamming with Wilco. Their songs are highly personal, introspective and original and portray a deep love of American music."
Opening for The Far West is Sonoma County's own Court 'n' Disaster. Court 'n' Disaster plays a blend of classic and traditional country music along with their own original songs. Their high energy, danceable songs are played by a group of Sonoma County legal professionals and friends who bill themselves as "Your Standard Courthouse Band"!
