Join us after the 100 Block Bike Night for a great show featuring The North Fork - never a cover at The Barrel!
The North Fork is a Omaha and Lawrence based Progressive/Folk/Jam/Psychedelic Rockbased band started in February of 2013. The band has gone through numerous changes in instrumentation, band personal, and sound--including the shift from being originally all acoustic to now having rock instrumentation. The music is written by the sole remaining original member, Cole Jeffrey (Vocals, guitar), and supported by: Marty Mootz (lead guitar), Mario Vlasic (bass, backup vocals), Alex Thiessen (drums), and Kolby Koczanowski (vibraphone, percussion).
The North Fork released it's debut album "Highlands" on December 11th of 2014. The album is a blend of many genres, with bits of: folk, progressive rock, psychedelic rock, and jam. The result is a sound with peaks and valleys. The album can be found on the Facebook page, or at thenorthfork.bandcamp.com. The North Fork released its second studio album in August of 2015, titled "Oxbow Farm." The album is a collection of songs ranging from Americana/folk inspiration to rootsy jam rock to eastern music influence.
