Mr. Hat Presents Achilles Wheel
Mr. Hat is Proud to present Achilles Wheel at Toot's Tavern in Crockett. Achilles Wheel is a California band that blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots Rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia.
Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live free and have a good time and in the end hopefully make a difference. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times, the here and now.
For fairly obvious reasons, I hear from a lot of so-called jam bands. None have impressed me the way Achilles Wheel did. They certainly can jam the rhythm section is wicked, Pauls rhythm guitar is first-rate, and Jonnys lead can make a stone dance. But what so many jam bands lack, AW has in spades namely, truly excellent song-writing, primarily from Paul but from other members, too. Lyrics and melodies both these are songs you remember and will. Dennis McNally, Grateful Dead Publicist & Author
Toot's has a great stage and sound system, and is located in a charming little town tucked under the Carquinez Bridge along the water of the Carquinez Strait, home of the C&H Sugar Factory. They have a kitchen as well as a full bar in case you get hungry. Legend has it, sugar caverns are hidden under the town. Stay down the road and enjoy a meal at the excellent & quirky spot The Bull Valley Roadhouse in Port Costa.
