Natural Drift BandNatural Drift will be appearing at Hog Wild BBQ, 38 Main St. in Placerville, on Saturday, Feb.16 from 5 to 8 p.m.  There is no cover charge.

Since taking the stage in 2005, Natural Drift — the Sacramento Area’s premier bluegrass band — has been featured throughout Northern California playing live music events from benefit concerts to private corporate parties as well as performing at the California State Fair, California County Fairs and the Sacramento Music Festival.

Natural Drift has performed at major California festivals, including the Bluegrassin’ In The Foothills Plymouth Bluegrass Festival and three times at the prestigious California Bluegrass Association’s Father’s Day Festival.

In 2008 it was selected as a California Showcase Band at the CBA Father’s Day Festival. Natural Drift has proven to provide listeners with an enjoyable, authentic bluegrass experience.

The band’s release of its first CD, “She Planted The Evidence On Me,” in 2008 won the acclaim of reviewers. “Natural Drift adds a fresh blend of the band members’ diverse bluegrass backgrounds to provide audiences with a delightful, engaging musical performance through its own passion and pure bluegrass sound.”

The band brings together more than 150 years of musical experience.

Natural Drift has recently been honored to add award-winning bass player and singer Angela Personeni to the Band. Wyatt Dietrich plays guitar and sings most of the lead vocals, bringing a warm, audience engaging tone to the front of Natural Drift’s shows. Dan Bernstein’s “Monroe” mandolin style mingles with the “true to bluegrass” banjo picking and baritone vocals from George Goodell. Samantha Olson demonstrates some of the best fiddling in the West. Olson also sings lead and harmony vocals, providing new, exciting dynamics to Natural Drift’s signature style of playing bluegrass the way it should be played. Angela Personeni plays the stand-up bass with an energetic passion for right-on rhythm which drives Natural Drift’s sound and provides both lead and tenor vocals.
