Music: Half Grass'd

Born from the ashes of an open bluegrass jam session. The same fellows kept showing up and sounding better and better each week, and folks started asking them what their "band name" was, and whether or not they were available for parties and such... so these old salty, grey-haired manipulators of strings and purveyors of ancient tunes banded together, picked a name out of the air, and called themselves Half-Grass'd! Our music is unique…imagine a combination of Merle Haggard and the Rolling Stones, with a banjo thrown in for good measure! Some folks call it “Hillbilly Rock & Roll”…and that kind of fits our style. Our music includes 4 part harmonies, is family friendly, and is enjoyed by young and old.

After 7 years of owning Insomnia Coffee Co, Evan Aldrete + Tyler Geel decided they wanted to know more about the coffee they were serving and the people who grew it. Dapper & Wise opened in 2013 with the intention of bridging the gap between coffee producer and final consumer. Whether it's through coffee classes, experimental drinks, or prioritizing a space for conversation our goal is to do coffee in a way that allows people to belong.
