Tea Leaf Green
Isaac Newton once said, “If I have been able to see further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” The exciting new album and resulting tour of Reed Mathis and 'Electric Beethoven' is just that, going further standing on the shoulders of giants. The album is filled with classical allusions and improvisational rockets that launch off into another world. Mathis took a concept that he has been chewing on for quite some time and put the pieces together into a masterpiece.
On an incredible night of music that spanned an entire block in Five Points in Denver at a legendary venue, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom and the Other Side, six bands took to the stage to crowded audiences.
Most folks going out to see live music generally seek a familiar favorite band, or at the very least a certain style or genre implied. Rarely can an act draw interest based on anything without these qualities. Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra is the exception. Butler is a fantastic multi-instrumentalist (primarily a drummer) who decided to abolish all of the above qualifiers of what constitutes a traditional band.
Tea Leaf Green percussionist and Coyote Hearing Studio engineer Cochrane McMillan recently took time out of his hectic yet welcomed schedule to discuss the balance in his life between the studio he co-owns and his solidified stance in the San Francisco based jam band.

If part of your plan for Warren Haynes’ 25th Christmas Jam was to get in town early to have a leisurely night Thursday at the Asheville Music Hall, Roosevelt Collier and Friends threw a pleasant kink in the plans. Kinks usually get a bad rap but in this case, this evening’s kink was very kind. The Asheville Music Hall is right in the same area as all your favorite Asheville entertainment establishments at 31 Patton Avenue. If you have yet to visit Asheville, you will find the ‘Strangers stopping strangers, just to shake their hand.” f

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, August 30th for $13.00 in advance, $15.00 day of show and $50 VIP package.The longer one lives the greater the number of scars and scrapes one accumulates. It’s the same with a band, where the years build up layers one could never have expected when they set out in a van back in the day.
It's surprising that Tea Leaf Green hasn't ever been to NedFest, since they would have fit well with so many of our artists over the years. So we are very pleased to finally get this mainstay of the jamband world up to a new venue in a state that they dearly love. For this band, the word "jamband" only describes the way they play, not what they play.
