Rocking Original Pop Music with an Indie Edge

Empty Wagon blends a variety of influence to create their own signature sound. As you might expect from a band that features multiple, accomplished songwriters, Empty Wagon can fill any venue with their own, irresistibly catchy, original music.

Sacramento veterans Phil Brann (guitar), Fred Nelson, Jr. (drums), Carl Rabun (lead vocals), and East Coast music-scene transplant Laura Bates Sterner (bass, vocals) form the four-piece core of this unique band.

But there’s so much more (see below)!

Favorite Cover Tunes for Festivals, Wineries, Breweries, and Parties!

As a cover band, Empty Wagon plays a large assortment of popular cover tunes to captivate any audience. Our musical selections are a cut above the usual, stale offerings, and our goal is to give the audience a fun and unique experience with music that is familiar and beloved, but not overplayed. Our playlist includes songs from The Beatles, Paul Simon, The Band, Sly and the Family Stone, the Talking Heads, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, and many more.

Yes, we rock! Let us rock your next event!
