Mike Gantzer of Aqueous

Nov. 19, 2020

I’ve been a fan of Aqueous for quite some time and have always been impressed with Mike Gantzer’s approach to the band’s evolution. With the Covid-19 pandemic still in our midst, bands like Aqueous are short on options to play live and make a living. So with the release of the Ardmore concert, I de…

Horseshoes And Hand Grenades

Nov. 13, 2020

If this pandemic, and the general malaise of 2020 has taught me anything, it is to be prepared for just about anything.

Steep Canyon Rangers

Oct. 29, 2020

Grammy award winning Steep Canyon Rangers recently released their first album of 2020 Arm in Arm.

Andy Hall

Oct. 15, 2020

Many years ago I saw Jerry Douglas play here in Toronto with the Derek Trucks Band and I was completely mesmerized by the tone of the dobro and the way in which Jerry commanded the instrument.

Bahamas

Oct. 8, 2020

I’ve been watching Bahamas career grow since his debut in 2009 and Pink Strat. For those that don’t know Bahamas is actually the stage persona of Afie Jurvenen one heck of a guitar player who toiled on the Toronto and Canadian indie scene until being recognized by Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Fairytail…

Everything old is new again. Back in the late 60s during the Haight/Ashbury scene of San Francisco, several bands emerged and caught fire.

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…

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…
