Uncle Shinbone

Uncle Shinbone was active on the Central Coast of California throughout the 1990's. The band began their journey as the brain-child of Kevin Dickey under the working name, Agapanthus. With a handful of Dickey's original pop songs the group managed to get a set list together, and was playing to college students at San Luis Obispo's Cal Poly within a few weeks of their inception.

Sunny Day's Rain was recorded a short 3 months after the band's meeting and became a local favorite among students, fellow musicians and radio stations in the area. Over the course of the next few years the band played every club, bar and festival in sight, and opened up for several national acts including Mathew Sweet, Widespread Panic and The Mother Hips.

When the band finally broke in the fall of 1995, they felt their craftsmanship had grown significantly since they joined forces. They decided to record one last album to document their accomplishments, and with the help of veteran rockers, YES, they recorded Slohemia, which captures their newfound musicianship and twenty-something perspective on life.

Original members included Kevin Dickey (bass), Esteban Chavez (keyboards), Mac Feller (vocals), Jesse Hiller (drums) and Dan Burke (guitar).
