bear market riotHop in the Cali Coach Microbus and head out onto the sunny open road with the infectious, chunky tunes of Bear Market Riot!

The Treehouse proudly welcomes this wonderful duo (half of which grew up on Bainbridge Island!) June 11!

In 2014 Kirk Nordby and Nick Motil met at a songwriter showcase in San Luis Obispo, CA. Over a bowl of gumbo the two conspired to busk together at the Baywood-Los Osos Farmer’s Market. Upon agreement that two beards are better than one, they became Bear Market Riot (Los Osos means The Bears).

Bear Market Riot is “power-folk” and Americana music from California’s Central Coast. And Kirk grew up on Bainbridge Island (BHS class of 2005!).

The duo blends everything from Folk to Hip-hop into an infectious sound that could only come from two bearded men playing 6 instruments all while keeping a full dance floor satisfied. Nordby and Motil captivate audiences of all-ages with catchy originals, and an arsenal of high-energy originally interpreted covers.

In their first year as a band Bear Market Riot played just about every winery, brewery, venue, and restaurant you could think of in SLO county including appearances at the California Mid-State Fair, Cal Poly University, and Vina Robles Amphitheatre. The duo released their eponymous EP of originals in the summer of 2015. That winter they secured funding through a successful Kickstarter campaign to record a full-length album to be released in late spring/ early summer of 2016.  Come see what all the commotion is about!
