Jason Hann: Balancing the Yin & Yang

The last two years for percussionist Jason Hann have been a roller coaster of musical endeavors.  His main project, the wildly popular String Cheese Incident, decided it was time to take an extended hiatus from performing due to some artistic conflicts within the group.  From the break, Hann and fellow Cheese drummer Michael Travis formed a dynamic jam-tronica duo called

The Grateful Web Interview with The Big Wu

In the burgeoning jamband era of the 1990s, one band from Minnesota set out to take the world by storm.  This of course is the Big Wu, one of the more unsung heroes of the jam scene who have arguably displayed some of the best songwriting to come out of rock in the last 15 years.

Grateful Web Interview with Billy Kreutzmann

The Grateful Web's Nancy Levine recently had an opportunity to speak to Billy Kreutzmann, drummer for the Grateful Dead about playing again as 'The Dead,' his love for ocean and sea mammal protection, and what profession Billy would like to attempt were he not playing music...

The Grateful Web's Interview with the Disco Biscuits

The electro fusion jammers and livetronica pioneers known as The Disco Biscuits are currently in the midst of their most extensive and exciting tour to date.  We're talking sold-out shows, guest appearances, multi-night headlining extravaganzas, the works.  On Friday and Saturday nights, The Disco Biscuits will bring their signature sonic tidal wave to the Ogden Theater in Denver, CO, ready to unleash three full se

The Grateful Web Interview with Blue Turtle Seduction

Born out of California's Lake Tahoe area, the men of Blue Turtle Seduction know a little something about what it takes to get their music out there and spread the word.  The band credits hundreds of live performances per year as the reason why they have been able to take their unique blend of rock, bluegrass, world, and pop out of the Western wilderness and across the entire United States.  And they have taken quite a devoted fan base alo

Devil's Sweet Revenge: A North Country Rock Suite

When the Minneapolis-based White Iron Band released their latest CD, Devil's Sweet Revenge, the band offered up something quite unique and very unexpected for these frozen Southern rockers. The hard-driving rock sound is still ever present in the 13 tracks, but there is a richness of content that I know no one expected to come out of these guys.

Marco Benevento | Me Not Me | Review

Marco Benevento is smiling. Do you know why? Is it the thought of his infant daughter? Perhaps the continual climb upward he has made in his career since bursting onto the scene in the late 90's? Or maybe it's the culmination of his most recent musical phase, the release of Me Not Me, which gave him the chance to combine his original magnum opuses with interpretations of the masterpieces of a number of other artists.

The Grateful Web Interview with the Toubab Krewe

On November 13th, I was all set to see the Toubab Krewe play the B.Side Lounge in Boulder.  I headed downtown early, hoping to catch the band after sound check.  I'd been corresponding back and forth with their tour manager for a few weeks, and after agreeing to review the band's new album, Live at the Orange Peel (due to be released on Nov.

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.
