INFORMATION

“Doors” typically open at 5:30pm for concerts.

Brice Station’s Hilltop Venue is located four miles past Murphys, on the way towards Arnold, on Highway 4. Look for the old red truck at the bottom of the driveway – and head up the road past our tasting room and Quyle Kilns Pottery. You should be greeted by our helpful parking staff then head up towards the barns to our box office tables.

Please check in to get your ticket and wristband.

Seating for concerts is “festival style”. Plastic adirondack chairs are available on a first come, first serve basis, and we recommend you bring your own low back chairs for seating on our lawn. Feel free to walk around the venue, but please stay inside marked boundaries. We are a working operation that includes a lot of hazardous equipment and steep terrain. Feel free to dance your heart out anywhere on the lawn!

Wine, wine cocktails, sodas, water, farm-to-table dinner and desserts are available for purchase. Feel free to bring your own food and non alcoholic drinks with you, but please clean up after yourself and take full advantage of the trash and recycling cans.

Our Farm-to-Table dinners will be provided by Tyler Waterman and Waterman Farms – fresh organic vegetables straight from the Brice Station property! There will be vegetarian options available. Call for more information.

Please do not bring any outside alcoholic beverages. Just don’t. Not only do you hurt our feelings, but it is not permitted under our alcohol license and you could get us in lots of trouble with the gub’ment.

Feel free to smoke in designated areas only.

Concert tickets are available online.

If you have any other questions, or just want to chat, feel free to call us at (209) 728-9893 or send an email to [email protected]

Saturday June 23  – ted z & the wranglers – Buy Tickets

“Ted Z and the Wranglers deliver outlaw country-charged rock. Ted’s catchy story-songs are fully-realized tales of love, regret, getting older, and getting in trouble. The band stirs up its Americana influences, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over galloping train beats and swinging shuffles. In the span of a few years, Ted Z and the Wranglers have become one of Southern California’s most compelling and sought-after Americana/Country/Roots Music collectives.” – from the Ted Z & The Wranglers website

Friday July 6 – birds of chicago – Buy Tickets

We are excited to welcome Birds of Chicago back to Brice Station!

“Music this raw and soul-rich demands to be experienced live, and Birds of Chicago have developed a fervent following, touring 200 nights a year since their formation in late 2012.  For these Birds, singing for a room full of new people, hearts wide open, keeps off the cold and chases off the shadows. In 2018 the Birds will be bringing American Flowers and Love in Wartime to a town near you. Rock and Roll will save our souls. Or, it’s got as good a chance as anything.” – from the Birds of Chicago website

Calaveras local Drew Bruchs and his band join us from sunny Los Angeles to preform at the Brice Station Hilltop stage.

The group’s heavy yet soulful sound is built upon rich layers, captivating melodies, and powerful vocals. Based in Los Angeles and consisting of members Zack Greenwald (lead vocals, guitar, keys), Alan Krespan (drums), Drew Bruchs (bass, keys) and Mark Pollack (guitar, keys), the band has performed alongside notable acts including Walk the Moon, !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and Alberta Cross.” – from the Givers and Takers Facebook page

Saturday august 4 – freight (Grover anderson & jimbo scott) – Buy Tickets

Jimbo Scott and Grover Anderson are two northern California singer/songwriters who have joined forces for this folk-based act. “Freight” honors the famed Freight & Salvage of Berkeley, California, where they met at a 2011 Open Mic… As Freight, Jimbo & Grover put on a show much greater than the sum of their parts. Joined in a full band setting by Josh Certo and Marshall Henry, as well as Jimbo’s impressive beard, their harmonies and energy are lighting up the Northern California music scene.” – from the Freight website

Sunday september 2 – poor man’s whiskey – Buy Tickets

“Northern California’s outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. Poor Man’s Whiskey has been growing exponentially in the past 5 years selling out venues across the country such as the legendary Fillmore in SF.This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time. Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans. PMW has released 6 studio albums and have a stunning repertoire to choose songs from creating a new show every night. In addition to their upbeat original sets Poor Man’s Whiskey have developed special late night “tribute sets” with their original bluegrass/americana twists which include “Dark Side of the Moonshine” (bluegrass interpretation of the classic Pink Floyd album) , “Graceland” (tribute to the classic Paul Simon album),  “Old and In the Way”,  “Tribute to Allman Brothers Band”, and “Tribute to Kate Wolf”.  Crowds of all ages will sing, dance and have a good time!” – from the Poor Man’s Whiskey website

Videos and music on their website here.


Saturday september 15 – bill welles band and friends – Buy Tickets

A local staple, Bill Welles is a regular at Brice Station and always puts on a killer show that has people on their feet and dancing. Americana, blues, folk, and rock. Join us for the last concert of the Brice Station Hilltop 2018 Season!
