BuckStar, a relatively new band comprised of five well-known local musicians (Eric Menig – Bass, Tom Menig – Guitar, Jenn Knapp – Vocals, Rob Kopp – Drums and Lucas Weber – Piano) will present a full evening of musical entertainment at 8:15 p.m. Friday at Off Broadstreet Cabaret and Dessert Theatre in Nevada City.

In addition to performing original works from their CD, the group covers such greats as Tim Hardin (Someone Like You), Kate Wolf (The Great Divide), Lowell George (Willing), Micky Newberry (Nobody’s Fault but Mine) Emmylou Harris (Even Cowgirls Get The Blues) and The Kingston Trio (Greenback Dollar). Pre-show entertainment will be provided by well-known singer/songwriter Chris Crockett, who will also join the group on stage to perform some songs from his new album, “Doing The Best That I Am,” a collaboration with BuckStar , scheduled for release in late September.

BuckStar is a country/rock/r&b band born out of Nevada County in late 2014. Its five members, Tom Menig, Eric Menig , Rob Kopp , Jenn Knapp and Lucas Webber are no strangers to the stage as these dynamic players have been starring members of bands such as “The Dead Beats” and “The Cheatin’ Buzzies”. They have also shared opening performances for artists “Kansas”, “Jr. Brown”, “Lucas Nelson” and others. Tom has toured Europe and the U.S. as the guitarist for his daughter, “Alela Diane”. BuckStar crafts catchy original tunes that have received rave reviews from audiences.
