The Stone Foxes are San Francisco's rock band. They bear the torch of their predecessors with the knowledge that rock 'n roll can move a new generation. They’ve played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, they’ve headlined the legendary Fillmore Theater in their hometown and they have supported acts like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant and ZZ Top. Now, with the release of their fourth album, Twelve Spells, they have solidified a place in their City's rich rock 'n roll history.

Founded by brothers Shannon(vocals/drums/harp) and Spence Koehler(guitar/vocals), who came from the Sierra Nevada foothills near Tollhouse CA, The Stone Foxes started back in the Koehler’s SF State days in the Sunset District of San Francisco. Two weeks before they went on tour in 2011, they decided they needed a keyboard player and they added Elliott Peltzman from Fairfax CA to play for a couple months...but he never left. They needed another drummer who could also play bass and guitar for tour in 2013, so Shannon called his high school friend Brian "The Buffalo" Bakalian...he never left either. Their old friend Vince Dewald came in to jam one day later on that year, and after the Indiana kid started singing, playing his lefty guitar, and his brother's right handed bass upside down, it was a done deal. Finally in 2014, after convincing(basically begging) Vince's old bandmate to move back from his home town of Boston, Ben Andrews came out to play guitar and violin. After their first practice with Ben, the circle was finally complete and they had beers at the Lone Star tavern on Harrison Street to celebrate their new found brotherhood.

The Stone Foxes are an experience to dive into, to get wild with, to sweat with. "The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that's rooted in swampy, foot-stomping rock...ambitious arrangements with diverse moods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs."

Invoking the audience with their commanding stage presence, even jumping down into the crowd if the mood strikes. Their fans know they are in for something action packed and they light a fire in the band, just as the band spreads fire back into them. Guitarists digging in, lead vocals changing between two unique voices with impassioned nuance, and keyboard and organ sounds that fill the space with smoke and burning embers. There are crunchy drum tones, wailing harmonica draws and violin cries that can silence even the most raucous of rooms. But this is not a sit-down-and-watch kind of event. Like Elvis once said about rock n roll, “If you feel it, you can’t help but move to it.” The Stone Foxes' live show brandishes this kind of dynamic passion on stage. It's impossible not to feel it.

With the release of Twelve Spells, the band has chronicled their new beginning.

"Garage rock gold...the sound of a band hitting their stride.”

“Perfect back-to-basics rock”

The sounds they are creating are new with tinges of western darkness, punk, surf, and americana, but are strongly tied together by their everlasting rock 'n roll core. Lyrics about gentrification, income inequality, romance, and heart surgeries pour out of their stream of consciousness. It's a fresh rock 'n roll album that chronicles the years of their unification, taking on the issues of their lives and our times.

"Driving this Weekend? Listen to Twelve Spells by The Stone Foxes...Time will fucking fly."
Bauner Chafin (Opener - No Show)
Bauner Chafin (Opener - No Show)
Bauner was born and raised in the valleys of southwest Ohio. Music was a crucial part of his childhood because there were musicians on both sides of his family. In his early years his ears were fed the sounds of outlaw country artists such as David Allen Coe and Merle Haggard and southern rock bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band. A guitar was put in his hands at 13 and it quickly consumed him and became his passion. Shortly after he picked up the guitar, he discovered blues music and fell in love with the sound of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, and BB King. This shaped the way he played and held the guitar. As he began to get a little older, singing and songwriting became another escape for him. He now draws inspiration from artists/bands like John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Gov't Mule, the Grateful Dead, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.
