Calistoga Falls was born in the heart of Orange County at the end of 2013 when Glen Lystne(lead vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, accordion) and Dave Gettings (upright bass, background vocals) came together to form an acoustic Americana bluegrass sound. Soon the two were united with Gary Leek, on lead guitar, and Mark Felten on banjo and rhythm guitar.
Now in our third year, Calistoga Falls continues to delight new audiences across Southern California. We are now a 5-piece group, recently adding Brie Guercci on lead vocals. Brie has the silky smooth voice that perfectly matches songs by Alison Krauss and Union Station, Nickel Creek, etc.
From traditional and modern bluegrass to heartfelt Americana to country and classic rock favorites, Calistoga Falls spans the musical spectrum with engaging performances and contagious enthusiasm. Our unique blend of well-known covers and amazing originals will take you from extremely relaxed to a state of high-energy foot tappin’ and hand slappin’ exhilaration.
Just as their world-famous namesake destination would imply, there is something for everyone when Calistoga Falls takes the stage. Imagine the musical magic that happens when acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, accordion and upright bass come together in a way that no other ensemble can rival.
