I am happy to announce that The Go Ahead from San Francisco are now part of my management roster!  This talented, high-energy bluesy-rock four piece is known for their incredibly unique sound, pulling from influences such as Incubus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, Fiona Apple and many more.  They're a nice blend of powerhouse grooves, soul-shaking bass, jaw-dropping guitar lines, and melodies packed with sheer emotion, which makes this band an experience unlike any other.  Vocalist Kyna Wise is an excellent front-woman that really pulls the audience in with her "barefood" performance.

I first met The Go Ahead when they were known as Jesús and the Rabbis and they played Woodstock's Pizza stage at the debut Santa Cruz Music Festival.  They played right after Pounders, ending the night with a lovely soulful energy.  A year later, with a new band name, I ran into them again when they played with Fritz Montana, which turned out to be a wonderful reconnect leading to some awesome show collaborations between the two bands.  I've really gotten to know the band over the past year, bonding even more this past March in Austin at SXSW.  I know this collaboration which will lead to some promising things and am excited for our future endeavors together.

Please welcome The Go Ahead to the Barb Rocks family!
