About The Band
From a blistering twang-fest of face melting Telecaster, to the swampy dirt sounds of traditional murder ballads (and everything in between), the Bottom Dwellers deliver REAL Americana, hillbilly swing, and truck driving classics with the vigor of 100 Jerry Reeds.

The Bottom Dwellers hail from the small I-5 town of Woodland California where for the past six years, they’ve been knocking the sox off of unsuspecting honky tonkers from San Francisco to Arcata, and from Winters to Quincy.
Their broad range of sound within the Americana realm has landed them on the bill with Dale Watson, the Derailers, I See Hawks In LA, Deke Dickerson, Little Charlie and the Nightcats, and Old School Freight Train. In 2007, they took home a Sacramento News & Review SAMMIE readers choice award for Best Country/Bluegrass band. The Bottom Dwellers are regularly played on local independent radio stations (KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis, KVMR 89.5 FM in Nevada City, KDRT 101.5 FM in Davis), and their song Company Truck has received national air play on NPR’s Car Talk.
Whether you like drinking, dancing or both, it all goes down much better with The Bottom Dwellers in the mix.
