About the event

Not far from where gold was first discovered in the Sierra Foothills, a band calling itself Knuf has emerged with similarly auspicious tidings. When this quartet hits the stage, they attack each moment with laser-focused intensity. Their influences from jambands like Phish and Grateful Dead are evident, yet they are committed to applying their own strokes to the canvas. Everything is funky as can be with a vibrant coat of creativity bringing it into the fourth dimension. This show has been rescheduled multiple times during the pandemic and it will be glorious to see it finally go down. There is no shortage of bands that can jam, but Knuf sets itself apart with a remarkable vocal presence led by guitarist Matt Gillies. The man is oozing with soul and swagger. He can suddenly shift into Motown mode and leave you with your jaw on the floor. They also have a solid foundation of original material sprinkled amidst the fantastic array of covers. Tasty improv jams are led by liquid guitar, saxophone and propelled by a forceful rhythm section. If only dancing was always this easy.
