On a slightly slow Friday night in August, National Park Radio and a handful of other musicians put on a fantastic show on a small stage at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR. The evening’s sounds ranged from beautiful ballads presented by opening act Willi Carlisle to the smooth bluegrass from National Park Radio.

Jeff Beck + Buddy Guy | Mountain Winery

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Tue, 08/23/2016 - 6:05 pm

Guitar icons Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy have drastically differing backgrounds and history, yet the two fared perfectly in a double bill for an extensive U.S. Summer tour that just made its way through the West Coast. Beck is hailed as one of the finest guitar innovators in history, as member of the Yardbirds (amongst Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page,) followed by an illustrious solo career with backing musicians including Rod Stewart, Ron Wood, Nicky Hopkins, and many others.

On a perfect summer day in Colorado, there may be no better place to spend one’s time then Red Rocks Amphitheater with the reggae legendary band the Wailers and one of funk’s most invigorating bands, Lettuce. These two musical powerhouses always leave their crowds satisfied. This year, Lettuce was even better than they were last year. This show was staggering the whole way through.

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Thu, 08/11/2016 - 5:07 pm

Some years back, former Grateful Dead vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux MacKay made a remarkable discovery in the storage of the family houseboat. Boxes of reels taped by legendary recording technician Betty Cantor-Jackson. The Grateful Dead tapes were the first to be dusted off, restored, and ultimately released for the enjoyment of all. Recently Donna Jean found yet another box consisting of all Jerry Garcia Band reels.

Umphrey's McGee | Indy | 8/5/16 | Review

Submitted by Nate Crawford on Sun, 08/07/2016 - 1:09 pm

Let me begin by saying that this was a typical Umphrey’s McGee show. And I was really happy with that. You see, UM does something not a lot of other bands are able to do: they bring a great energy and excitement to everything they are doing. To go along with this, all of the guys in the band are at the apex of musicians on their particular instruments and this means that even when they don’t “have it” they still play incredibly well and do great things.

Heart of Gold Band Reunion with Bob Weir

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Sat, 08/06/2016 - 12:25 pm

The decline of 1970's Grateful Dead piano player Keith Godchaux was sad but not entirely unexpected. The hardships of the never-ending grueling tour and travel schedule (that had always been for The Dead) had taken its toll on Keith and his wife Donna Jean Godchaux, a talented Muscle Sholes-alum vocalist. It was Donna who introduced Keith to Jerry Garcia in 1971 after a Dead show they had attended.

Princess Maya & the Breathing Treatments

Submitted by Benjamin Wallen on Tue, 08/02/2016 - 7:14 pm

To see a performer perform for the first time can be a wild thing. How will they handle the pressure? How will they perform on stage for the first time in front of a roaring crowd? You have to be bold, brave and strong. Fearless in the face of the unknown. You have to put yourself out there. Princess Maya and her band The Breathing Treatments are all of thee above and them some.
