California '66 Revue tour brings Electric Prunes, Love & Moby Grape

Three premiere bands of the Los Angeles psychedelic era of the late ’60s will join forces August 4-18, 2009 for the California ’66 Revue tour. The Electric Prunes, Love and, for the April 12-18 dates, Jerry Miller from Moby Grape will bring the spirit of Sunset Strip and San Francisco in the late ’60s up the East Coast and into Canada and the Midwest.

Miller joined the tour when Sky “Sunlight” Saxon of The Seeds, originally booked, passed away unexpectedly on June 25. The tour will continue in Saxon’s memory.

According to promoter Patrick Hand, “A major reason I'm promoting this tour is that the Electric Prunes are the best rock band in the world right now. Just listen to 'Feedback.' They sound like 20-year-olds. The Electric Prunes are the only band from the 1960s who are putting out better music now than then.  And the music they put out then was pretty damn good.”

The current incarnation of Love is led by Johnny Echols, lead guitarist in the classic 1966-68 lineup, and will be backed by Baby Lemonade, the latter-day psychedelic L.A. band that accompanied Love founding member Arthur Lee from 1993 until his 2005 death. Jerry Miller will perform songs from his tenure with Moby Grape as well as other eras of his 50-year recording career.

The tour begins in August 4 at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia and ends on August 18 at the Birchmere outside Washington, D.C. Other tour cities include New York, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Cleveland, Detroit, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

love“We wanted to do a few shows in intimate venues to see if there is still interest in this genre, and we’ve already passed that test,” adds Hand. “If the public is as enthusiastic in attending the shows as the clubs have been in booking, then I have no doubt we’ll be back on the road again, in the West Coast and the U.K.”
 

About the artists:

The Electric Prunes: In 1966, a sonic blast of feedback, tremolo and fuzz emerged from the confines of a Los Angeles garage. The Electric Prunes’ electrifying single “I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night),” widely recognized as one of the first psychedelic hit records, heralded a transition period in popular music. Their combination of psychedelia and bluesy grit offered a unique auditory experience that was a far cry from the pop music popular at the time. A cut from the band’s Mass in F Minor concept album was selected for the soundtrack of the classic road movie Easy Rider. Unlike many of their contemporaries, the Electric Prunes were capable of reproducing their distinctive recording sounds in live performances. They continue to perform across the world, stewarded by founding members Mike Tulin and James Lowe.
 
• Love: Led by the late singer/songwriter/guitarist Arthur Lee, this interracial Los Angeles band was among the most influential and original of its era. Love’s creative impact on other artists from the mid-’60s right up to this very day outweighs the commercial success of their brief but highly productive heyday. The 1967 epic Forever Changes, a suite of songs using acoustic guitars, strings and horns recorded while the band was falling apart as the result of various abuses, is widely cited as one of rock’s all-time greatest albums. Since Arthur Lee’s death in 2005, the legacy of Love has been carried forward by its founding guitarist/songwriter Johnny Echols along with Baby Lemonade.
 
Jerry Miller, who Eric Clapton is reported to have called the “best guitar player in the world,” is best known as the lead guitarist in late ‘60s San Francisco three-guitarist band Moby Grape, which signed to Columbia and recorded four albums between 1966-69. He co-wrote with member Don Stevenson the classics “Hey Grandma” (covered by the Move) and “Murder in My Heart for the Judge” (covered by Three Dog Night and Lee Michaels.) Earlier in his career, Miller played with Bobby Fuller in his predecessor band to the Bobby Fuller Four. Following the Grape’s 1970 dissolution, Miller joined two Grape bandmates in the Rhythm Dukes, and later shared the stage with Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Eric Clapton, Taj Mahal and Robert Plant. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Miller is once again based in his hometown of Tacoma.

Adam Steffey: ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD

He's one of the most widely admired mandolin players around, and the most influential in a generation or more, but when Adam Steffey finally got around to making his second solo album in eight years, he knew just what he did--and didn't--want.  "I wanted to go in and make a record, and have all these people that I work with be on it," he says, "but I didn't want to make an instrumental album, because I think those can get monotonous.  I know I'm known primarily as a player, but I wanted to have just enough picking on there to where everybody could turn loose, and then mostly have some good solid vocal things.  If people listen to this album and take it as a reflection of the way I look at everything about music, and not just as a showcase for how I play, then that would be the highest compliment that could be paid."

adamIt's hard to imagine listeners not getting that--and a whole lot more--from One More For The Road, Steffey's Sugar Hill Records debut that hits the streets on September 22nd. Balancing instrumentals with vocal numbers and carefully chosen classics with strong originals served up by Steffey and a brilliantly chosen supporting cast, including former bandmates from Alison Krauss & Union Station and Mountain Heart alongside current colleagues in the Dan Tyminski Band, it's a stunning portrait of a musician who's not only a master player and convincing singer but perhaps most importantly, a team player who knows exactly when to lead and when to lay back.

With support from producers Gary Paczosa and Union Station/Dan Tyminski Band bassist Barry Bales--a friend and picking partner of Steffey's for close to 30 years--Steffey and friends tackle a well-crafted set list that shows off a rare ability to not only find under-appreciated songs, but to match them perfectly with players and singers.  And while attention will surely fall on vocal contributions from Krauss, who offers a lush reading of a decades-old Bluegrass Cardinals find ("Warm Kentucky Sunshine"), Tyminski and Ronnie Bowman, whose shimmering "Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends" sets a new standard for the Kristofferson classic, it's actually the mandolinist himself who serves as the most frequently featured singer.  "I try to be realistic about my voice," Steffey says, "and I'm not the ballad singer at all," but his evocative baritone is perfectly suited for the originals (including one self-penned entry) and bluegrass ought-to-be-classics like Mark Rader's early 90s favorite, "A Broken Heart Keeps Beating."

On the instrumental side, Steffey drew on a circle of colleagues who have interacted musically and personally for years--and whose playing shows it in every note.  "I wanted everybody to be throwing different things in, and to mix it up some with different combinations," he notes.  "But all the guys that I got to play on this album, they listen as hard as they focus on what they're going to play.  They're sensitive to everything that's going on around them, which makes playing so easy--and they're just so good. I'm ready to jump out of my seat when I hear these guys playing."

Indeed, whether they're going to town on a slinky modern tune like the opening original, "Deep Rough," or a durable but under-recorded standard like "Durang's Hornpipe," the ensembles Steffey, Bales and Paczosa concocted for One More For The Road serve up models of precision, feeling and groove, born out of years of playing together and a more elusive but equally real musical empathy.  Yet despite--or, perhaps, because of--his commitment to the ensemble dynamic, there's no doubt that this is Adam Steffey's album.  His unique taste, along with his melodic gifts and unexcelled feel for rhythm, inform the project from first note to last.

"I know all the guys that are on here, they're thinking, they're listeners, and I want everybody to get that feeling from the record," Steffey says.  "I'll be happy if the people who hear it can tell that I was listening and not getting in the way, that I was just trying to make the song the best it can be."  It's a safe bet that they'll be able to tell that--and a whole lot more besides.

Phamily Reunion: Music, Camping, Vending Options for PHISH ticket holders

eotoIn just three short weeks, PHISH will make their triumphant return to Red Rocks in Morrison, CO for their first performance in 13 years at the legendary amphitheater. The band was banned in 1996 after numerous local complaints about illegal camping and unquestionable behavior of the fans in the small community of Morrison. Flash forward to 2009, where local organizers have put together an alternative to illegal camping by securing a private campground with transportation and late night music included in the ticket price.

The Phamily Reunion, which will coincide all four nights of PHISH at Red Rocks, has a solution for everyone. Ticket holders and those who weren’t lucky enough to get tickets to see PHISH, are all invited to join the all-night party taking place in serene Idaho Springs, CO. After brisk initial ticket sales in 4-day camping passes, event organizers have just released one-day passes to the event, scheduled to go on sale on Thursday, July 9th 2009.

The four-day celebration has already penned an amazing line-up of national acts including The New Mastersounds, EOTO and the “glitch goddess” Ana Sia among five new regional additions to the lineup including: Mama’s Cookin’, Stanky Pockets, Chris Webb Band, Seismic Shift and J Wail Vs. Agobi Nick. More surprises are to come and tickets are going fast, making for great anticipation of the four-day camping and music event in the beautiful Colorado Front Range July 30 through August 2. Day shows at the campground will warm the dancing feet and late-night shows will keep the festivities rolling into the night. To top it off, the festival offers the opportunity to camp under the Colorado stars, whitewater raft, fish, hike, horseback ride and soak in the hot springs.

Beats Antique New EP: Contraption Vol. 1

Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electonica and world roots music comes Beats Antique, a masterful merge of modern technology, live instrumentation and seductive performance. After only 2 and half years performing as a cohesive force, the group has just self released their third album, Contraption, Vol.1 which marks the first in a two-part EP series.

beats-antiqueThe seven-track EP is dance-floor ready, infused with orchestral textures and a worldly flare that has fans clamoring for more. Using only word-of-mouth marketing, Beats Antique’s new tracks have over 700 paid downloads and 20,000 plays on the EP in the first week of their self-release. There is no doubt that the merge of old world instruments and live producing is on the rise and Beats Antique is leading the way.

Beats Antique combines the sounds of the Middle East with the styles of hip-hop, brass band, downtempo, glitch and dubstep in a new collage of music that is mixed and broken down with clever breakbeats for an adept international flair. Beats Antique is producing an un-charted style of music by adding live horns, accordion, glockenspiel, viola, string quartets, kalimba, clarinet and various unusual instruments to their big beat arrangements.

Born of Oakland, CA, the musical trio consists of producers, David Satori, Sidecar Tommy and world-renowned belly dance performer/producer Zoe Jakes, who helped inspire the thematic Middle East tempo of the band.

Coming off a landmark tour in the US and UK in support of their previous release, "Collide" on CIA (Miles Copeland’s new label, previous manager/producer of The Police, REM, etc.) "Collide" has reached the Top 10 list of most downloaded artists under Middle East and World Dance and the Top 20 most downloaded electronica albums on Amazon.com. Beats Antique returned to the states with an imagination full of new material ready to be released around the world. Their latest EP, Contraption Vol. 1 available for download only features an array of styles including a free track and collaboration with famed hammered dulcimer player Jamie Janover and hip-hop, beat boxer vocalist mastermind LYNX.

Stanley Jordan With The Les Paul Trio

stanley-jordanStanley Jordan plays with an uncommon depth of feeling. Many who see him perform for the first time are struck by the emotional intensity of his playing. There are times when he seems totally immersed in the music. As a listener, it is hard not to be affected by this feeling. Before you know it, you are drawn in to a new musical world with its own rules and its own seemingly limitless possibilities. And whether he's spinning out ever-new variations on songs he's played for years, or creating new songs on the spot, his shows are dependably unpredictable.

Papa Mali ft. Bill Kreutzmann @ Boulder Theater

Legendary drummer and co-founder of the Grateful Dead, Bill Kreutzmann, (who played every show in the band’s illustrious 44 year career) first met funky bluesman and voodoo electronic pioneer Papa Mali at a festival in 2008.   Bill recalls in a recent interview, “We first met at the Oregon Country Fair last year.  He was the headliner on the main stage, and I sat there and watched him and went, ‘This guy's for real man, I like this guy.' Then we met, after that he came over to my trailer that I was staying in and you couldn't separate us, we talked for hours. It was just one of those natural things, you know? You can't plan it, you can't make it happen. And then we started playing together.”  Since that meeting the band has played numerous shows including shows in Oahu and Maui for Halloween, a New Year’s Eve run in Maui and a Midwest festival tour.

Bill and Papa are gearing up for a Colorado tour and joining them on the run will be bass virtuoso Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green, JFJO) and multi-instrumentalist (if it makes music, he can play it) Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson and Friends). The band will be playing songs of the Grateful Dead and classic R&B. Reed and Papa first shared the stage in 2008 during a string of Mardi Gras shows in Colorado called The Big Easy Blowout which raised thousands of dollars for both the New Orleans Musicians Clinic and Tipitina’s Foundation and also featured Page McConnell (Phish), Russell Batiste (Funky Meters, PBS), Big Chief Monk Boudreaux (Wild Magnolias, Golden Eagles) and many others.  The synergy between the two was immediate and powerful.  Matt Hubbard joined Bill and Papa for their last several tours and adds his unique flavor to every tune.  Together they will rock a mighty sound in Colorado that will incorporate several tunes from the Grateful Dead repertoire, Papa Mali originals, some New Orleans and Southern songbook interpretations and maybe even a new Robert Hunter original.

DEADMAU5 RETURNS W/ 'FOR LACK OF A BETTER NAME'

His name may conjure up images of a lifeless rodent, but the Canadian born self- confessed techno geek otherwise known as DEADMAU5 (pronounced Dead Mouse) punches like a heavyweight.  On September 22, the Grammy-nominated, Juno Award-winning electronic music sensation who has racked up more than 5,000,000 hits on MySpace will unleash his second album for ULTRA Records--titled FOR LACK OF A BETTER NAME--and then set off on a massive fall tour throughout North America.

deadmau5Over the last two years, DEADMAU5 has gone from near obscurity to becoming a superstar as an innovative live performer.  This past spring he sold out two nights at New York City’s Webster Hall and one night at Hollywood, CA’s legendary 4,000- capacity Palladium.  This summer he’ll perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Electric Zoo in New York, Glastonbury in the U.K. and a host of other European festivals. In the fall,  he’ll launch his mammoth world-wide ‘For Lack Of A Better Name’ tour encompassing over 30 dates in North America alone, including the headlining slot on the highly anticipated annual HARD Halloween event taking place at The Forum in Los Angeles.

The trek will kick off September 23 at Ritual in Ottowa, the day after For Lack Of A Better Name drops in both Canada and the U.S.  The non-stop routing will take DEADMAU5 through markets up and down both seaboards and throughout the interior of both countries with stops in his hometown of Toronto, San Francisco, Denver, Little Rock and everywhere in between, all while wearing his signature custom-made mau5head.  The complete listing of tour markets follows below.

On For Lack Of A Better Name, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2008 debut Random Album Title, DEADMAU5 takes a different turn by incorporating various styles of music into multi-blocks of songs.  The album will include “Ghosts ‘N’ Stuff,” featuring Pendulum’s Rob Swire, and the title track, both of which he’ll perform on tour. Further details about the album will be unveiled at a later date. 

Meanwhile, the video for DEADMAU5 and Kaskade’s club smash “I Remember” continues to make waves. Already garnering over 500K views on YouTube, the video has been favored by the likes of AOL as the Video of the Day and featured by both MySpace US and UK.  Shot in Manchester, U.K., the video stars favorite actor Stephen Graham (This is England, Snatch).  View the full length ten minute video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRj91VZG4Dw.

Kyle Hollingsworth to Release New Album, Then There's Now

For more than a decade, as keyboardist for Colorado's beloved String Cheese Incident, Kyle Hollingsworth has consistently proven one of the most innovative and virtuosic musicians on the American jamband scene. Now, with the Sept. 15th release of Then There's Now (SCI Fidelity Records), his first album since the band announced a hiatus in 2007, Hollingsworth extends his reach into areas that will both delight longtime admirers and lock in countless new ones. Emphasizing his considerable songwriting skills and incorporating a plethora of surprises, Then There's Now marks the true emergence of Kyle Hollingsworth as a solo artist.

kyleFor Hollingsworth, who has recently been more prolific than ever before, the title of Then There's Now offers the first clue as to where he stands today. Then There's Now undeniably draws on Hollingsworth's past affiliation with "The Cheese," using his previous work as a jumping off point-yes, there are some intoxicating, if more concise, jams to be savored. But the album's "now" component-irresistible melodies, poignant lyrics and fine-tuned song construction, plus a willingness to infuse the tunes with elements of pop, jazz, electronica, hip-hop and more-transports Hollingsworth into musical realms he's never before explored at length.

Look for Hollingsworth on tour this fall in support of Then There's Now.  Tour dates to be announced soon.
