In anticipation of the April 1 release of Elephant Revival’s new album, Petals, Grateful Web chatted with Bonnie Paine to learn more about the production of the album, the band’s future and Bonnie’s dreams for her own future.

Beautiful and inspiring as ever, Petals is an album you won’t want to miss. And maybe with this interview you can listen to it more deeply and with a better understanding of how it all came together.

Last week we had the honor of speaking with multi-instrumentalist, producer, nationally syndicated talk show host, and longtime Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member John McEuen. The masterful string-slinger joined forces with the band in their formational year of 1966 and has remained with them for decades.

Over the past 20 years, New Orleans-based funk phenomenon Galactic have established themselves as one of the absolute premier funk bands in the country.

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Wed, 02/17/2016 - 2:33 pm

For nearly four decades the guitar playing of Steve Kimock has captivated listeners of all different musical palettes. The master improviser and bandleader is busy as ever, nearing an exciting nationwide tour with his new band K I M O C K featuring his son John Morgan Kimock on drums, familiar cohort Bobby Vega on bass, and Leslie Mendelson on vocals and piano. I’m here today with Steve to talk about this surge of new activity.

Grateful Web Interview w/ Melvin Seals

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Sun, 02/14/2016 - 6:29 am

This is Dylan Muhlberg of Grateful Web here with Organ maestro, vocalist and bandleader Melvin Seals. Since 1981 Seals sat behind organ, piano and synthesizer for Jerry Garcia Band. His gospel, soul and blues influences were pivotal to the evolution of Garcia Band’s sound.  All the more remarkable, since the untimely passing of Garcia in 1995, Seals assembled a talented lineup of musicians to continue Jerry Garcia Band’s music.

The New MastersoundsEddie Roberts is a musician with little interest in lyrics, which is ironic because he’s a blast to chat with. The English guitarist and leader of the band now resides in Denver, Colorado, which comprises three shows of the eight stop tour through Colorado they start on Sunday.
