Colorado Groovin': Perpetual Groove in Denver

Somewhere between space funk and carnival time resides the music of Georgia-based jamband, Perpetual Groove.  The current lineup of Brock Butler (guitar/vocals), Adam Perry (bass), Albert Suttle (drums), and Matt McDonald (keys/vocals) exploded onto the live music scene in 2001 and have since gained quite a devoted following.  Electrifying performances at festivals such as Wakarusa,

Charlie Hunter Resident Magician

Guitar player, bass player, virtuoso, jazz and blues legend, and magician are all titles that describe the sorcery that Charlie Hunter creates so effortlessly on stage. Taught originally by guitarist Joe Satriani with a $7 guitar in Berkeley, and since then collaborated with dozens of incredible musicians, Hunter has certainly made his mark at a young age as a guitar great.

Moest Underrated?

I have always felt that moe. had never truly gotten the respect that they gratefully deserve. It is slowly dawning on fans of the jamband and other scenes that moe is for real. Coming off the release of an amazing new album The Conch, that even Rolling Stone gave 4 out of 5 stars to, moe. came to Philly to rock.  So did the fans.

N'awlins Funk Visits the City of Brotherly Love

"Y'all wish Ben (Ellman) a happy birthday," Papa Mali preached to the crowd as he strolled off the stage after a fun set of music.  It was the first night of February at the Theatre of the Living Arts in Philadelphia on its famous South Street. Galactic was playing only the second show in their long spring tour, and it was on, N'awlins style.

Keller Williams | Dream | New Music Review

Over the years I have found Keller Williams' live shows to be an exciting spectacle of his unique musical talent, full of interesting and catchy songs.  However, I have felt that his studio releases have lacked the same energy and substance.  His vocal style can sometimes be redundant and his signature guitar playing has lost some variation.  With the release of Dream that has all changed, mostly in part to the dream team of artists he assembled to collaborate on this project that give 

Stanton Moore Trio Brings the Funk

On a night where Colorado music fans could have seen G-Love and the Special Sauce, another Zero reunion, and numerous other acts it was exciting to see folks completely pack the Bluebird Theater in Denver to witness the latest incarnation of the

Kyle Hollingsworth & Friends Warm Up Denver

After the disclosure that String Cheese Incident founding member and guitarist Billy Nershi would be leaving the band this year, many fans were left to wonder what might become of the remaining band members.  Could they tour without Billy, or would this truly be the end of the Cheese?

Peter Rowan & The Tony Rice Quartet | Jaqua Concert Hall

Cozy would be an understatement.  The air was stifling on Saturday night in Eugene, OR's Jaqua Concert Hall at The John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts.  But the music was cool and refreshing.

Bruce Hornsby | 'Halcyon Days' | Review

Halcyon Days, Bruce Hornsby's ninth full-length album and first for Columbia Records, evoke hopes for the future and memories of the past while appreciating, according to the artist, "Great days, beautiful peaceful days when they happenin these times."

Trey Anastasio | Mini-Album 18 Steps | Review

After listening to the mini-album 18 Steps I begun to question Trey Anastasio's choice of track listings for the release Bar 17, his latest studio project distributed this October.  There are some real gems here that probably should have made the cut for the major release, and may have been better received choices that some of the sleepers on Bar 17.
