Bahamas

Oct. 8, 2020

I’ve been watching Bahamas career grow since his debut in 2009 and Pink Strat.

David Shaw

Oct. 1, 2020

The Revivalists are one of the most active straight ahead Rock n’ Roll bands out there right now. And while they aren’t a “Jam Band” per say as most of the bands are that we feature on this show, they do jam, and fit nicely into the southern rock, ethos. They have a very distinctive sound, and at t…

Band of Heathens

Sept. 20, 2020

When I first heard of Band of Heathens a few years ago, it was because someone slapped the album Duende in my face. It’s a great listen, but it came out like 3 years ago. Since then Band of Heathens have also released a great cover of the Ray Charles album “A Message From the People”. So I was pret…

Sept. 17, 2020

I’ve developed quite the report with many of the artists on the Jam Band scene in Northern California.

Eric Earley of Blitzen Trapper

Sept. 13, 2020

While the title of the new album for Blitzen Trapper’s 10th release due out September 25th, may suggest something on the lighter side, Holy Smokes Future Jokes is certainly not that. It deals with a great many existential and deep questions about life and death. Because the album is so deep when we…

Sept. 10, 2020

It’s been six years since Joan Osborne put out a record of original material, but her new 10 song record Trouble and Strife absolutely makes up for the wait.

Wood And Wire

Aug. 30, 2020

Wood & Wire are a special kind of bluegrass band, who stretch the boundaries of what they do beyond typical bluegrass music. Sure there are others that do the same, but Wood & Wire offer something more unique in terms of song structure and style. I suspect that even if you weren’t a typical bluegra…

The Ghost of Paul Revere

Aug. 27, 2020

Good at Losing Everything is the latest album from The Ghost of Paul Revere, a great band out of Maine, that we absolutely adore. They are a little bit holler folk, straight ahead folk, but mostly good ole' rock n roll, and frankly that's why we love them so. The title track, and the entire album e…

Mike Mattison

April 25, 2020

I first heard Mike Mattison’s voice, like so man my of us did, listening to Derek Trucks Band records, but truly, the break through was a song called Sweet Inspiration. But Mike is more than just a singer as his now with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, he is a musician, a songwriter, an incredibly talent…
