We are The Old Screen Door. Thanks for visiting our website!
As enthusiastic musicians, we love making music fun, both for you – our fans – and for ourselves. We enjoy the entire process from writing original songs, practicing in our studio, traveling to venues, to making the party happen.
Our music, which we call rock N soul, has a raw and sizzling sound that spans styles, genres, and age. Our early influences are some of the greats: Tower of Power, Earth, Wind, & Fire, The Beatles, The Shins, The Black Keys, White Stripes, and RX Bandits. Our music is about fun, movement, and the joys and experiences that form our life journey.
In 2011 we exploded onto Sacramento’s music scene and during this exciting year we have focused on bringing the best live music to our fans at local live music venues throughout the area. We now look forward to our first tour.
Favorite songs such as Dig-a-Dent and Bar Fight showcase our talent and diverse musicality. Follow us on this web page, or on facebook and twitter for upcoming shows and festivals. See our events page and come have fun with us!

As a self-taught guitarist who has loved singing and performing since he was a young boy, Garrett’s great drive and enthusiasm, focuses the mission of the band. His unique vocal style, outrageous sense of humor, and charisma make him an instant favorite with fans. His goal is to touch you and transport you away from your troubles. His ability to state the obvious with creative flow makes his lyrics memorable and exciting to hear. Just try NOT to dance!
Harry was given a drum set as a boy, but it took attending a concert where he witnessed the fun and excitement the drummer was having on stage, to motivate him to dust it off and seriously pursue his talent. Never having performed prior to The Old Screen Door, Harrison quickly fell in love with all aspects of performing and shares that joy with the fans. As the “big picture” guy in the band, he brings a sense of humor, keeping the energy light and flowing. His goals include growing as a musician and moving forward with the band you will want to follow!
Clay started playing music in high school and immediately caught the performance fever. “There is no greater inspiration than seeing people dance or sing along to one of our songs,” said Clay. His love of music has few boundaries, he can play most instruments and has played in bands ranging from country music to heavy metal. “Bass creates the backbone for any song. It is rhythm you can get lost in.”
The most formally trained, structured musician in the group, Michael studies the music of past decades to understand what made each genre special and how to bring that to today’s market. Bringing this knowledge and talent to The Old Screen Door, Michael’s keyboard scores are exciting, progressive, and fluid. Quiet and demure with a huge heart, Michael acts as the mediator, bringing a calm and grounded spirit to the band.
