Shepherd Canyon Band

Jerry, Josh and Bernie first began playing together simply for fun, in a casual weekly jam. After several years in the woodshed, the group jelled with the addition of Ken Smith and Jess Beebe, and the Shepherd Canyon Band was born – named after the canyon where Bernie lives.

The band’s gigs have included playing at the Frog and Fiddle in Alameda, the Pickin’ on the Potomac series at Jack London Square, Monaghan’s on the Hill in Oakland, Amnesia in San Francisco, and the annual Fourth of July fundraiser for the Graniteville, CA Volunteer Fire Department.

While traditional bluegrass is the core of the band’s sound, they also like to explore around the edges, venturing into country, western swing, pop, or whatever songs might take a “grassin’.”
