DIRT RAKERS: The Dirt Rakers are an Americana (Santa Cruz mountains honey jar Americana) band featuring Erik Rozite (guitar and vocals), Jayne Williams (mandolin and vocals), Jay Hansen (lead acoustic resonator guitar, slide), and Jojo Fox (bass and harmonies) Louisa Sandman (washboard). We're a home-brewed group out of the redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains, blending a high octane / cask-fermented feel, purdy harmonies, and a deep love of all rootsy genres of music. Rock, country, bluegrass, blues, jam band and folk all swirl together in our magical musical brew. We mix our original songs with some covers by anyone from Tom Petty, Wilco, Neil Young, and Devil Makes Three to old school tunes like Hank Williams, and The Carter Family … We're a bunch of good-time friends playing good-time music.
