Spider Bucket combines driving, acoustic punk with folky charms and cathartic lyrics that will bring hope to even the saddest of cowboys.

Frontman and lyricist John-Marion Gonzalez bares it all on stage with guitar, banjo, ukulele, kazoo and some signature hardcore-style vocals (as a treat). Supported by Karen Jensen on trumpet and backup vocals, Caleb Sky on alto saxophone, and Stephanie Rodriguez on bass, Spider Bucket brings a captivating, high energy show that will keep you dancing. Hop on in, there's room for everyone in the Bucket!
