Woody Guthrie Stage - Cafeteria

The Creak plays an action-packed mix of music rooted in the bluegrass tradition while drawing inspiration from sources as varied as the Beatles, the Bill Evans Trio, the Hot Club of France, James Brown and Slayer. With a hard-swinging rhythm section, memorable melodies, and beautiful instrumental interplay, The Creak captivates audiences of all ages.

A fixture on San Francisco's vibrant streetcorner busking circuit, the Creak has honed their chops playing engagements at the Great American Music Hall and Cafe du Nord, appearing alongside the likes of the Brothers Comatose and the venerable Misisipi Mike. Formed in 2009, the band consists of:

  • Joe Readel, guitar and vocals
  • Korey Kassir, fiddle, mandolin and vocals
  • Chris Underwood, banjo
  • Ryan Lim, bass
  • Joe Boone, guitar
