That sentiment goes back to the simple rules that Downing and Hockett made when they first decided to put the band together. The kindness factor has fueled the group's first eight years, and it's an attitude that's helped Musketeer Gripweed build connections with national acts like Trampled by Turtles and play high-profile festivals with the likes of Los Lobos. According to Downing, who cites dust-ups and dramas in numerous bands, it boils down to basic mental health.

"Life's too short to have that," Downing concludes. "It's friends and family first in this band, and we always keep that in mind."
