Play our demo

In the winter of 2008 Mokelumne Crossing began as a collaborative acoustic ensemble comprising singer/songwriter, and recording artist, Patricia Jackson; guitarist/ harmonic and vocals, Gil Vanover and multi-instrumentalist/ vocalist, Jonathan Lack.

The band began performing together locally in 2009, and quickly became an integral part of the music scene in Amador, Calaveras County and Stockton area.

Summer of 2011 John Hoffman joined the band introducing a solid articulated bass and vocals. January 2017 Doug Spainhower joined as our drummer and added a fifth vocal harmony. He is a shining example of rhythm keeping, solid rock to jazz grooves.

Mokelumne Crossing has a refreshing variety of styles: Celtic/Irish standards, rhythm and blues, toe-tapping country, soft rock and oldies, as well as a unique collection of Jackson’s acoustically driven originals.
