As the saying goes, breaking up is hard to do.  However the end of the first chapter of the String Cheese Incident might have been the most amicable amongst any artists in recent musical history.  The members of the band have decided to part ways indefinitely in order to pursue other artistic interests and frankly back away fr

For several years, the Seven Clans Casino and Hotel outside of Thief River Falls has sponsored an outdoor bluesfest. It began with one short evening of music and has morphed into two days of blues goodness, usually for no cost.

After spending much of August in the studio working on their next album, Toubab Krewe will hit the road for an extensive tour this fall. The band kicks things off on September 8 at the Trade Music Farm, a gorgeous outdoor venue in the mountains of eastern Tennessee. From there, they head to the Midwest for a run of club dates and performances at the Wall to Wall Guitar and Lotus music festivals.

By all accounts, Gathering of the Vibes 2007 was a huge success on every level. The four-day festival, August 9-12, brought together musical artists, staff and an estimated 20,000 attendees from all across the nation to celebrate music, camping and camaraderie, and all agreed that the Vibes return to Bridgeport, CT, was triumphant.
