We are a four-piece Americana/Folk/Bluegrass alternative band out of Tehachapi. Fistful of Nickels comprises multiple instruments ranging from upright bass, guitar, mandolin, violin, banjo and the dobro.
You will see us at breweries from Kern County to San Luis Obispo County, performing all of our original songs and some of our favorite covers from our idol's.
