The Western Family Orchestra, a collection of local musicians whose core members include Lee Bob Watson (Aficionado/Happy Mayfield), Gabe Nelson (Cake), Tom Heyman (Court and Spark, Chuck Prophet) and more, have been holding regular performances at the Make-Out Room for some time now, inviting guest musicians to join their group renditions of each others’ songs and covers. The WFO recently announced that they will be producing a monthly series of live radio programs at the Make-Out for KVMR (Nevada City), featuring “a variety of regional and national acts in

[the WFO’s] casual West Coast Opry format.”
