MUSIC for the Afternoon
2pm to 3:30pm
RELENTLESS was created in 2018 in Lassen County, CA. Guitarist Mike Pepetone and his vocalist wife Julianne Pepetone have performed locally since 1992 in numerous bands, including the Saloonatics Blues Band that won the 2001 Siskiyou Blues Competition. Thomas Braun (bass) has worked with the Susanville Symphony since 2004. Dave “Pee Wee” Besancon (drums, guitar), another long-time music veteran, rounds out the basic Relentless lineup. They play a variety of their own compositions and quality songs by other composers, including rock, blues, country and folk music. Often, Gary Renaud (voice, guitar), a former Portola resident,
joins in with his own original songs. The result is an eclectic entertainment experience unique in northern CA.
