Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee

6/24/2022
After almost 25 years of putting out records and touring, everything came to a halt for the dudes in Umphrey’s McGee in March 2020 with the pandemic crushing tour plans. That didn’t stop them from putting out live streamed shows and a handful of drive in shows. They also managed to continue recording songs for a new album, which you’ll get to hear in its entirety next week. Asking for a Friend may in fact maybe my favorite Umphrey’s McGee album to date. It’s filled with great lyrics, awesome...

Adam Deitch of Lettuce

6/17/2022
The funk band Lettuce have been out on the road and will continue to be all Summer and Fall so I wanted to catch up with someone from the band to talk about their latest release Unify, working with the great Bootsy Collins, the band’s trip to Europe in the Fall and much more. Luckily we caught up with drummer Adam Deitch to talk about it all. First song: Keep that Funk Alive (ft. Bootsy Collins) Second song: Waffles See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Marco Benevento

6/10/2022
When you’re a master craftsman, as Marco Benevento is, and have a wealth of tools at your disposal, as is also the case with Marco’s extensive inventory of many different types of keyboards and synths, creating on a whim, brilliant works of art, is merely an exercise in timing and availability. With the world seemingly shut down Marco indeed had the time, retreating back to his lair, his home studio, he wanted to create something entirely on his own, a masterwork of sorts, which displayed...

Nicki Bluhm

5/27/2022
One of our favorite female singer songwriters, Nicki Bluhm will be releasing Avondale Drive in early June on Compass Records. This is, Nicki’s second solo record, a follow up to her 2018 record To Rise You Gotta Fall. Nicki has been a mainstay in the jam band adjacent communities for years, and I’ve been a fan since her awesome van sessions that she did with her old band The Gramblers. Now this native Californian makes her home in Nashville, and Avondale Drive marks a new chapter in Bluhm’s...

Rob Compa of Dopapod

5/6/2022
It’s incredibly difficult to describe the awesome music Dopapod makes. Is it rock, funk, progressive rock? I honestly have no clue anymore and the forthcoming self titled release the band’s 7th is a pot pourri of sonic goodness. This new album due out a May 27th has been in the works for a while now, probably dating back to when the band came off their self imposed layoff that ended in late April of 2019. Needless to say, the COVID pandemic created another break but at that point the band...

Adam Weinberg

4/29/2022
The pandemic was no doubt a tough time for everyone. Being huddled in your home, away from socializing, going out with friends, or even attending shows. A glimmer of hope though for many was the absolutely awesome Phish covers fingerstyle guitarist Adam Weinberg and his daughter performed for us on social media. That's where I first came across Adam, and indeed learned that he was a talented musician in his own right, having put out solo instrumental records, and touring as Matisyahu's...

Max Davies of Kitchen Dwellers

4/22/2022
I can't think of better ambassadors for the state of Montana, at least musically then the Kitchen Dwellers. Their very old school blend of bluegrass combined with effects and crazy covers has always had me thinking that this was a cool band. Their third album, Wise River is a tribute to a Montana river that runs in the Southwestern region of the state and empties into Big Hole River. While they make Bozeman Montana home, about two hours away from Wise River, it's clear that the Kitchen...

Carey Harmon of Railroad Earth

4/15/2022
Entering their third decade now, Railroad Earth have solidified their position in the jam world as a Bluegrass tinged Americana outfit. With their notoriety and hustle, also sadly came change in 2018 with the passing of founding member Andy Goessling. So when they went to make their new record, All for the Song due out April 22nd, they headed to New Orleans and recruited singer songwriter and producer Anders Osborne to help at the dials.

Jeremy & Greg of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

4/8/2022
You gotta dig everything about Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. They are fun, have amazing shows and are supremely talented. Though their music is based in funk, they explore a lot more sonic territory in what seems like an effortless way. Like many of the bands in our community, the pandemic meant the Pigeons were grounded for almost two years. The band though used the time to create more great music and have just released their 6th album, Perspective. So I caught up with frontman Greg Ormont and...
