Enchanted Ape Digs Deeper with 'Off the Ground'

It has been my pleasure to watch Minneapolis band Enchanted Ape develop from a gathering of players who got together to have a good time and occasionally write a clever tune to a road-honed band that is producing intelligent songs with tight instrumentation. It is no wonder that they have been repeatedly asked back to Minnesota's 10,000 Lakes Festival and Summerfest in Milwaukee.

Backstage at the Fox Theater with BoomBox

Last weekend, the electrofunk duo BoomBox stopped by the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO to dish out their unique brand of dance worthy club rock to a packed house of Saturday night revelers.  Before the show, Grateful Web's Sam Holloway had an opportunity to go backstage and catch up with Zion and Russ about life on the road, the band's next album, and the evolution of

Grateful Web's Interview with the Everyone Orchestra's Matt Butler

Recently Grateful Web's Alex Borosody had the opportunity to talk with Matt Butler, the musician and conductor behind the Everyone Orchestra, who we also discovered can add, "great orator" to his list of talents. Never one to shy away from leadership, you could say Matt conducted the interview, as he energetically and expressively weaved eloquent science and philosophy.

Hunchin' at the Crossroads

Once upon a time, in a holler far, far away, a music revolution was born when the cries of Hasil "The Haze" Adkins, the last of ten Adkins children, first echoed across Appalachia. No one knows the exact date of the event. Though it was recorded in a family Bible, the Bible was lost.

The Hue Bringing New Color to 10KLF

One of the interesting twists to this year's 10,000 Lakes Festival is the inclusion of two new bands with some screeching metal influences. One is Dub Trio out of Brooklyn, bringing hip-hop and hard core with a peaceful message, and the other is The Hue, out of Chicago.

Cooking with Cornmeal

Whenever any loosely-based bluegrassy band comes to Chicago, Cornmeal is always called upon to make the touring band feel welcome, usually by whipping up the audience into a frenzy before they take the stage. They've shared a bill with Yonder Mountain String Band, Blueground Undergrass, and the wildly innovative and popular band, Railroad Earth.

Heatbox Lights a Fire

One of the most unusual acts at this year's 10,000 Lakes Festival is Minneapolis artist, Heatbox.   Aaron Heaton, performing as Heatbox for the past five years, has created a one-man show that has to be seen to be believed. He's not a comedian, and he's not a singer or a rapper, though there is some of that in his show.  He definitely is not a musician, and he's the first to admit that. "I play the drums, the keyboard, and the bass - all badly," he says.
