Medicine Hat! California Rock


During the 1960s and 70s the genre of California Rock was established by artists such as The Byrds, Neil Young, Jefferson Airplane and Joni Mitchell.  Medicine Hat is certainly qualifies as great California Rock! The band hails from Ventura, California. The sound overall is mellow and cheerful with an underlying twist of melancholy and heartbreak in the lyrics, punctuated with a tinge of reverb steeped guitar reminiscent of Neil Young on top of an overall jingle jangle like Roger McGuinnish guitar.  The rhythm section is solid and keeps  an even pace for Michelle and Robert up front to work their vocal harmonies duets and guitar work. Michele is also a wonderful percussionist lending a unique subtle, soft and womanly addition to the overall sound.  Check out the band live and purchase a CD or download. You will not be disappointed!
