The Band Ukiah is an acoustic trio with stunning 3-part harmony. They consist of Ronnie Lester on guitar, his daughter Lauren Lester on guitar and Chip Meyers on bass. All three are superb lead vocalists in their own right but together, the result is perfection. They take turns fronting the stage highlighting their talents. Lauren is also an acomplished song writer and a few of her self-penned songs are included in the shows. They also have a 4th Ukiah, Mark Poole on guitar, who lends his talented vocals and upside down guitar magic to the mix upon occasion. If you’re a fan of great classic acoustic rock, you WILL be a fan of The Band Ukiah!
