I just want to let you know how excited I am about the upcoming debut/album release shows coming up for a project I am part of called The Latin Dead! Led by percussionist, Brenden Tacon, and featuring a "who's who" of Latin Jazz (including 4x Grammy-winning keyboardist, Oscar Hernandez) as well as Andy Vargas (Santana) helping me out on co-lead vocals, I think you will dig this mash-up of songs and styles. An album release announcement should be coming soon, and our first three debut performances are just a few weeks away!

The sign-up is now open for people to be a part of this much anticipated book created with John Wetton’s family and management. Some seventy-plus people who knew and worked with John, from his school days through Family, King Crimson, Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash, Roxy Music, U.K., Asia, the John Wetton solo band and beyond, pay witness and tribute to his life and work.

Fun. Excitement. Urgency. This is what powers Ben Bostick’s explosive new release, The Rascal is Back. “My last two albums were subdued, and I really wanted to make a big, loud, fun record that would be fun to play live.”

Today the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival (OMF) announced that Big Boi, Rick Mitarotonda, Peter Anspach, Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee will all take part in the festival’s 6th PoWoW! all-star jam session. Led by the GRAMMY® nominated group Free Nationals, the PoWoW!

The band consists of Bonnie Paine (vocals, cello, djembe, washboard and musical saw), Bridget Law (fiddle, vocals), Dango Rose (upright bass, mandolin, vocals), Charlie Rose (banjo, pedal steel, mandolin, vocals) Darren Garvey (drums, percussion, vocals) and Daniel Sproul (guitars, vocals) of Rose Hill Drive.

Friday night, I got the invite to travel to The Fox Theatre in Boulder to see the up-and-coming Buffalo Commons. Formed in 2017 and originating out of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, it is hardly a surprise that yet another stringed talent has again emerged from the Rocky Mountains.

As announced yesterday via their socials, Nashville-based quintet and live sensations Rainbow Kitten Surprise have sold out their entire ‘Live in Colorado’ tour – selling over 25K tickets for the run which only went on-sale this past Friday.  

The highly-anticipated four-night trek is slated for July 2 + 3 at Dillon Amphitheater and July 5 + 6 at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Fellow Nashville-based outfit The Brook & the Bluff will support all four dates.

The tenth-annual Faster Horses Music and Camping Festival will return in 2023, with headliners Luke Bryan, Shania Twain and Zac Brown Band set to descend on the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, MI on Friday, July 14 through Sunday, July 16.

The Wood Brothers announced their eighth studio album, Heart Is The Hero, will be released April 14 via Honey Jar/Thirty Tigers. Recorded analog to 16-track tape direct from the studio floor with nary a computer in sight, brothers Oliver and Chris Wood, along with honorary sibling Jano Rix, stripped back their sound to its elemental core, focusing on the impact of the performances over studio perfection.

Twiddle continued their Distance Makes the Heart tour on Sat Jan 21 with their Sold-Out performance at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ. Mihali Savoulidis and the boys came to the coastal Jersey town on a chilly night with Philly-based Great Time in support.
