2008 recipients of the Northern California Artistic Acheivement Award for Best Independent Band, The Cheatin' Buzzies is comprised of family members Jen Knapp (Vocals and Guitar), Robb Kopp (Drums), Darin Driscoll (Bass and Vocals), and close friend Bruce Carter (Guitar and Vocals). Luke Weber (Piano and Vocals) has recently joined the group. After years of making music with other people, this tight-knit group formed in the Summer of 2005. Since that time they have played various shows in the Northern California region- headlining weekend club shows as well as supporting regional touring acts locally. In the Summer of 2006, the self-titled "The Cheatin Buzzies" was independently recorded and mixed in Nevada City, California, and mastered by Chicago based Carl Saff. Tracking of the band's second full length album is complete and post production is currently underway with a late Summer 2008 release date. The Cheatin' Buzzies blend the musical flavors of many styles.
