Bonnaroo 2014 | Review and Photos

Another year and another successful Bonnaroo adventure can be checked off the list.  It seems like it was just yesterday that I was rocking out to Sir Paul with my parental units at Bonnaroo 2013.  Where does the time go?  With each year I attend this festival, one thing does remain constant, change.  I was in attendance the first few years when Bonnaroo was in its infancy, going just as a fan to see 'The Dead,' Bela Fleck, Galac

Grateful Web Interview with Pete Jive

It’s summertime. The casual days seem so much more as long days leak into evenings and the music never stops. The pop tune Let Her Go has infiltrated nearly every radio station and TV commercial as a seemingly background noise we have all become accustomed to.  It got me thinking about Pete Jive.

Spoonfed Tribe | Interview | Wakarusa 2014

GW: So who all are you playing with this weekend?

Chaddy: We’re just kinda cruising around. We’ve got some buddies here. A couple of the Spoonfed guys are doing their vacation and we had the weekend off so we thought we’d come up and be a part of the magical festival here.

GW: Have you guys ever been to this festival?

Grateful Web Interview with Rusty Shackle

Just before Wakarusa breaks over the horizon, Grateful Web sent some questions to Wales-hailing band Rusty Shackle. A self-professed ‘dirty bluegrass folk ‘n’ roll’ band, Rusty Shackle has lots of personality and they’re bringing it to their first U.S. music festival. The 6-piece band features brass instruments, strings, percussion and vocals, not to mention some really awesome covers.

Grateful Web Interview w/ Slightly Stoopid Founder, Miles Doughty

In a career that has spanned nearly two decades, California-based reggae rock band Slightly Stoopid has consistently pushed the boundaries of their respected genre with their seemingly endless tour schedule and eclectic blend of roots, reggae, punk, hip-hop, and funk. Since their self-titled debut release on Skunk Records in 1996, Slightly Stoopid has gone on to sell countless records and play massive shows spanning across the globe including Japan, Australia, Dominican Republic, and Portugal.

Grateful Web Interview with Moon Honey

Moon Honey, the New Orleans born quartet, is celebrating the release of their first full album, Hand-Painted Dream Photographs, with the completion of their US west coast tour.  Moon Honey’s love of the symphony and poetry is evident in the beautiful lyrics throughout this record and in the orchestrated tracks.  Violinists, harpists, horns and choirs have sat in with the band.

Grateful Web Interview w/ Head for the Hills bassist, Matt Loewen

Head for the Hills will perform at Pickin’ on the Poudre at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre to kick off the outdoor concert series on Saturday May 17, 2014.  Voted “Best in Bluegrass” by Denver Westword magazine, Head for the Hills needs no introduction in Colorado.  Though rooted in bluegrass, the Colorado-based quartet aspires musically well beyond the boundary of the genre’s tradition - just listen to “Never Does” from their latest album Blue Ruin for a dose of their sound.  In fact, sample these tracks an
