Historically, mountain ranges have been formidable barriers for civilization. But for the first settlers who passed through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, those features gave way to a unique sense of independence and became insulators from the rest of civilization, with collaboration, rather than competition, as the prime virtue. Flash forward to 2015, and you can hear this dynamic at play on BRIGHTER EVERY DAY, the newest album from Denver indie-mountaingrass quintet TROUT STEAK REVIVAL.

Two of the most buzzed about bands on the scene, Kung Fu and Twiddle, are joining forces for a twelve night co-headlining run that kicks off tonight in Buffalo, NY, and Buffalo.FM will be offering a free live audio stream of the show staring at 9pm.

The Hoxeyville Music Festival today announces the lineup for this summer’s multi-day event. The talent includes such diverse acts as Michigan’s own Greensky Bluegrass, plus Hard Working Americans (Feat. Todd Snider, Dave Schools, Neal Casal, Chad Staehly, Duane Trucks), Jeff Austin Band (Feat. Danny Barnes, Ross Martin and Eric Thorin) and many more performing on the festival’s two stages.

While the “core four” remaining members of the Grateful Dead are hanging up their collective spurs this Fourth of July weekend, Dark Star Orchestra has no intention of ending their road warrior ways. Dark Star will be in Chicago for the festivities and a performance for the Rex Foundation on July second, and it only seems fitting; they’ve been long considered the top tier of the Grateful Dead cover band food chain.

Brotherly Love Productions is excited to announce the very first Roosevelt Collier South Florida Get Down featuring legendary musicians Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band), Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band) and Anthony Cole (JJ Grey & Mofro), and of course the one and only Roosevelt Collier (The Lee Boys) on sacred steel.

The definitive Primus line-up - Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - just reunited to release their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, 'Primus & the Chocolate Factory,' out now.

Loud & Proud Records is proud to partner with Blackbird Presents to release the CD/DVD “Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More For The Fans!,” a celebration of the band’s incredible musical legacy.

Rounding out their biggest headlining lineup to date, Umphrey’s McGee will be playing two nights at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio (approximately 20 minutes East of Columbus, Ohio), alongside previously announced artists The Werks, Papadosio and Dopapod for The Werk Out Music & Arts Festival, held August 6-8.

The Grateful Dead are widely considered the first “jam band.” Within the world of rock and roll, jam bands are noted for their extended improvisations and even experimental departures from traditional song structure (think Dark Star, Drumz & Space, and of course, Seastones).
