JGB - Hampton 1991Jerry Garcia Band - Coliseum Hampton VA November 9 1991 (2CD) - The Jerry Garcia Band's Fall 1991 East Coast tour is fondly remembered as one of the band's peak moments, a run of shows brimming with energy, wit and heart. The Hampton show was particularly enlivened by Bruce Hornsby, who sat in the entire night on electric piano.


 

JGB - Merriweather Post 1989Jerry Garcia Band - Merriweather Post Pavilion September 1 & 2 1989 (4CD) - Merriweather Post Pavilion, September 1, & 2 provides two solid shows of the Jerry Garcia Band. This longstanding line-up rarely sounded better. This release is a must have for collectors. Jerry Garcia: guitar, vocals, Melvin Seals: organ, John Kahn: bass, David Kemper: drums, Jaclyn LaBranch: vocals, Gloria Jones: vocals


 

JGB - Merriweather Post 1989Jerry Garcia Band - Theatre 1839 San Francisco July 29 & 30 1977 (3CD)Theatre 1839 is a compilation of two performances of the Jerry Garcia Band at Theatre 1839 in San Francisco, CA from July 29 & 30, 1977.

Last Week:

Carolina Chocolate Drops Carolina Chocolate Drops - Leaving Eden CD - North Carolina-based Carolina Chocolate Drops follow up their critically lauded label debut--2010's Grammy Award-winning Genuine Negro Jig, which reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers and Folk Charts--with Leaving Eden.

The Drops have toured year-round internationally since the band's inception, playing festivals such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Telluride and selling out concert halls and clubs. The band regularly receives critical accolades from publications such as the Seattle Times, which said "What a treat to bask in this Grammy-winning group's top-notch musicality, easy good humor and understated but sparkling showmanship with just the right dollop of historical background." And the Capital Times (Madison, WI) said, "The string band performed a joyful, high-energy show that had the packed, sweaty theater moving and cheering for the entire time. The band's sound is rooted in, and very reverent to, the traditional African-American string band sound of generations ago. But the attitude is anything but old-timey, as the band brought in hip-hop and soul elements, a no-holds-barred energy, and just a sense of playfulness to the songs."

Caravan of Thieves - FunhouseCaravan of Thieves - Funhouse CD - Channeling pop bliss through their trademark lock-tight, turn-of-the-century, bang out a beat on anything that can take it approach, The Funhouse, (operative word: fun) which is soon-to-be-released on United For Opportunity, is exemplary of a band on the high road to musical perfection. The listener closes their eyes and can taste the bacchanalia and join the fete. Tunes like "Raise The Dead," the record's single, drive the point home with impressive lift, powered by soaring crescendos and inspired gang vocals, not to mention a lyric that invites the deceased to join in the fun. "Mexico" is a dark road ramble that will, at the very least, make you wanna dance around the room, if not run off yourself. "Candy" betrays the writer's addiction to the sweet confections that sounds like Vaudeville, but feels like The Beatles' "Savoy Truffle." And on it goes, the perfect soundtrack for your trip through the tunnel and into the light. If this album can't raise the dead, nothing will. (Features Fuzz from Deep Banana Blackout and Big Fuzz!)

Keith Moody - Dreaming Out Loud CDKeith Moody - Dreaming Out Loud CD - Moody continued his same strength of song with the sophomore release of his new classic rock influenced album, Dreaming Out Loud. "With this album I have a sound that is unique to me" states Moody. "The sound is big yet stripped down, using the basic instrumentation you might hear from 4 or 5 piece rock bands, letting the songs carry the performance and do most of the work. I am excited for everyone to hear this record. I hit on some subjects both personal and broad that people can relate to in their own way." The debut single, "One Big Ending" video features a young woman who has always done what was expected and then decides to pursue her dreams. The first track, "Long Way Up", personifies the tough but often rewarding journey of fighting for what you want out of your life, battling obstacles but never giving up. Then there is the most upbeat song of the album, "Up", which is all about finding that perfect person. The many influences of Keith's journey are reflected throughout the album in songs such as "New Distraction", "Lay It Down Easy", "Already Home", "I Don't Know (Who the Bad Guys Are Anymore)" and "Plastic Hearts".

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty BirdsSister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds - Pound of Dirt CD - Brooklyn's own Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds deliver an eclectic and timeless mix of gritty blues, soul, funk and garage rock. Led by the dynamic, soulful and sexy Arleigh Kincheloe and her brother Jackson on harmonica, SSDB are one of the must see live acts of 2012.

The tight-knight collective's nine endlessly talented musicians have performed alongside artists ranging from Dr. John and Wynton Marsalis to Beyonce and Hercules and Love Affair, creating an undeniably original and raucous sound that is at the core of the group s new album 'Pound Of Dirt,' out February 28th 2012 on Modern Vintage Recordings.

Upcoming Events:

*March 22-25 - Suwannee Springfest - Live Oak, FL

*April 19-21 - Wanee Festival - Live Oak, FL

* Look for the HGMN Booth at these events!

Coming Soon:

The Ragbirds - Travellin' Machine CDThe Ragbirds - Travellin' Machine CD - After a highly successful 2011 The Ragbirds are kicking off a new year with the release of their 4th studio effort. In this exciting mew album the band has seamlessly blended a wide palette of musical genres into a fresh and cohesive 10-track package that is full of life and energy. It's rare to stumble upon a band that brings as much joy and creative flare to their music as the Ragbirds. Led by the energetic front woman, Erin Zindle, the band tastefully unites multi-cultural rhythms with a roots rock flavor that is as captivating and flirty, as it is smart. A bright and diverse addition to any music collection, the album provides charming, danceable songs that can be enjoyed by listeners of all ages.

Last Week:

 

Keller Williams - Bass CDKeller Williams - Bass CD - "Bass" is Keller's 17th album and the first on which he only plays bass. Comprised of 11 tracks, 9 originals and 2 covers, "Bass" documents Keller's exploration of creamy bass lines and groovy rocksteady beats mixed with his own unique style and vision.

And now a word from Keller:
Greetings Music Lovers. Thank you for partaking in yet another one of my self-indulgent musical journeys. In my never ending quest to do something different, I present you my first release containing no guitar. Not a single guitar was used in the making of this record. To me, that's different. And that's what I'm going for.

This record has no looping. This is a document of songs and the overall, open air, spacious vibe created by this trio we call Kdubalicious. I am honored to be joined by musical genius Jay Starling on keys, and the one-drop master Mark D on drums. The record was recorded, mixed and co-produced by recording god Jeff Covert at Wally Cleavers in Fredericksburg, Virginia during the summer of 2011.
Free the bass, and your mind will follow. ~ Keller
