TapWater is an American Jam Rock experience. Our sound is the Doobie Brothers meets Steely Dan meets Santana around the campfire under the bright mountain stars.


TapWater is a San Diego-based jam rock band that gives voice to a generation searching to be free. Part country and jazz, part blues and bluegrass, our unique blend of sweet jammy “rock” and comfortable “roll” return inspiration to folks longing for more than a 9-to-5 life. Trading routine for adventure, fluorescent lights for mountain air, TapWater is true American spirit.

TapWater’s mission is to:

* Make you groove in merriment.
* Make a positive impact on the community.
* Provide a business model that integrates social responsibility into its structure.

Music is one of the only forces that can bring thousands of people together in the spirit of celebration. TapWater uses this special gift to initiate and improve community relationships. We are successful because our bright happy sound bridges four generations of folks from all different backgrounds. The result is a warm reciprocity between band and fans.
