Yonder Mountain String Band "The Show" Out Now

Article Contributed by yondermountain.com | Published on Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Yonder Mountain String Band, whose “joyful and irreverent” (LA Times) live shows “leave you worn out, danced-out, grinning and begging for more” (Tulsa World), kicked off their nationwide tour this past weekend with three shows in Telluride, CO. They’re on the road through October, and wrapped several dates supporting Dave Matthews Band.

The four-piece band of Adam Aijala (guitar), Jeff Austin (mandolin), Dave Johnston (banjo) and Ben Kaufmann (bass) play marathon 3-hour sets, blending one song into the next and improvising on stage, so that no two shows are alike. Fans this summer can expect Yonder Mountain originals, their take on some classic bluegrass tunes, and a few songs from their 5th studio album ‘The Show,’ out now. Watch the band performing their propulsive single “Complicated” and the album track “Dreams” to over 9000 enthusiastic, dancing fans at Red Rocks on August 28th.

Stay connected with Yonder's tour dates, news, photos and more on the band's brand new iPhone app.  Check out the application through itunes, compatible with your iPhone or iTouch.  The Yonder website is also now mobile-friendly and easily accessible on your phone, blackberry, iphone and more!

“The trophy for best musical set goes to Yonder Mountain String Band who, as the sun began to set, left it all on the stage for an hour and a half. The pickers from Colorado had the audience dancing and shaking, kicking up a joyful storm of dust into the cool summer sky.”- Jarrett Bellini, CNN Showbiz Tonight (All Good Music Festival review)
