One of our favourites around these parts is Neal Casal. You know him as the ace guitar player with Chris Robinson’s Brotherhood, but he’s also the brains behind the Circles around the Sun project. We’ve had him on the show before and enjoyed our chat, so when news broke that there were new Circles Around the Sun dates coming, we tracked him down to talk about those dates, a potential new Circles record and of course his full time job with the CRB.  Our conversation started when I asked Neal about the Circles Around the Sun dates in January….

It’s true, Neal is one of the hardest working men in the jam band scene. He takes his work seriously, and is a great follow on Instagram if you’re into photography. If you’re looking for more information on Circles Around the Sun head over to For more on CRB check out
