  • HENHOUSE PROWLERS

    HENHOUSE PROWLERS

    Bluegrass

    On stage, the group's enthralling performances give audiences a sense of how much they love what they do; while on record, the band manages to explore their collective life experiences through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the undeniable foundation of the Prowlers music, the band manages to bend and squeeze the traditional form into a sound all their own.

    With over 175 shows a year, the quartet has managed to tour more than 25 countries, often going to places traditional American music has never been.

    Tours in Siberia or the Middle East are not uncommon since the Prowlers started working as cultural ambassadors with the US State Department in 2013. These global experiences have pushed the band in new directions musically, with songs from Africa and Asia on several albums, but they have also moved the group to start an educational outreach program for both school children and festival-goers alike.

For many years The Schwag hosted its own Schwagstock music festivals drawing crowds of an average of 5000 people per event several times per summer. The band owned the venue Camp Zoe in Missouri where the festivals were hosted. Some of the bands opening for The Schwag at these festivals were George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Keller Williams, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and New Riders of the Purple Sage.

From May of 2013 to May of 2014, The Schwag was primarily on hiatus, as lead singer Jimmy Tebeau served time in federal prison in Yankton, South Dakota for a music/drug related crime. The Schwag band is now stronger than ever on a perpetual tour performing a different show every night of a high energy organic interpretation of the Grateful Dead.  

  • Terrapin Flyer Featuring Tom Constanten

    Terrapin Flyer Featuring Tom Constanten

    Jam Bands

    errapin Flyer began in 1999 as the house band for the Sunday Grateful Dead Jam at the Boulevard Cafe in Chicago. Through the many associations developed there and many that have continued since, the band has grown into one of the premier Grateful Dead inspired touring acts in the nation. The band draws from the a variety of skilled musicians including Grateful Dead keyboardists Tom Constanten, Bob Bralove and Vince Welnick (RIP). They also tour with Jerry Garcia Band organist Melvin Seals and Ratdog guitarist Mark Karan. Additionally, they have done one off shows with guest musicians such as grammy award winning blues harpist Sugar Blue, guitar prodigy Fareed Haque, Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik and musician, songwriter and music journalist David Gans. The band has headlined major festivals and prominent venues across the nation.

    From the band’s humble beginnings sprang forth an ever growing network of musicians. From a loosely associated group of musicians at a jam night, a band began to develop. The original band came into fruition when they were asked to perform with Grateful Dead keyboardist (1990-1995) Vince Welnick on a cable access television show and festival in Madison, WI. After that the band continued to tour with Welnick and performed several times as “Vince Welnick and Friends including headlining the 2004 Dunegrass Festival in Empire, MI to several thousand in attendance. After several tours with Vince Welnick, the band was ready to move on to its next potent association.

    An 8 day tour was planned in 2004 with Melvin Seals the consummate B3 organist of the Jerry Garcia Band for 15 years. The tour was enough fun for Melvin to recognize that this band could perform under the name JGB on it’s next tour and performed to packed houses under the JGB name on another short tour a bit later in the year. From there several shows were performed with that band as Melvin Seals and Friends. After a decade, the partnership with Melvin Seals and Terrapin Flyer continues today and features the band digging deeply into the JGB catalog and sometimes also includes Ratdog guitarist Mark Karan and Tom Constanten as well.

    Vince Welnick passed away in 2006. Tom Constanten first performed with Terrapin Flyer shortly after Vince’s passing on the “Vince Welnick Memorial Tour” to celebrate Vince’s memory. The association with Constanten produced several additional tours including performing as Tom Constanten and Friends on occasion. The pairing of Terrapin Flyer and Constanten continues presently and interprets the era that he performed in the Grateful Dead from 1968 – 1970.

    In 2009 Terrapin Flyer began performing with Grateful Dead midi-wizard Bob Bralove. Bralove who produced and co-wrote songs on the Grateful Dead’s Infrared Roses album was the proverbial man behind the curtain of the Grateful Dead’s legendary drums and space segments. During this part of the Grateful Dead shows from 1987-1995, Bralove was playing sampled strange and beautiful sounds on a keyboard behind the stage. After the demise of the Grateful Dead, Bralove joined Tom Constanten to perform tours and record several albums as the band Dose Hermanos. Terrapin Flyer has explored deepest space with Bob Bralove on keyboards as well as performing shows with both members of Dose Hermanos together on stage.

    Most recently in 2011, the band has been touring with Grateful Dead family lead guitarist Mark Karan. Mark was the lead guitarist for the post-Grateful Dead band which featured all the former members The Other Ones. He also performed for 12 years in founding member of the Grateful Dead Bob Weir’s band Ratdog. Recently Mark has been consistently performing with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh at his new concert venue Terrapin Crossroads.

    oday Terrapin Flyer performs with a lineup that continues to bring in new guest musicians, nationally recognized artists and mix up various members from its history to create new and intriguing musical dynamics to each show performed. Other members of the band include current and former members of Cornmeal Wavy Dave Burligame, Kris Nowak and JP Nowak. Jimmy Tebeau and Dave Hebert from Melvin Seals JGB and many other prominent players in the Grateful Dead extended family.

    From a jam night to a nationally performing headlining band, through time the resume of the band Terrapin Flyer has indeed become impressive. The band has headlined such prominent festivals as The Dunegrass Festival in Empire, MI, The Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in Nelson, OH, The Highberry Festival in Ozark, AR, The Whippersnap Festival in Earlville, IL , Jam Along the Creek in Millmont, PA, The Grateful Garcia Gathering and the Field Trip Festival in South Elgin, IL. Additionally, the band has headlined major venues such as the House of Blues Chicago, Martyrs’, The Traverse City Opera House in Michigan, The Kinetic Playground, 23 East in Ardmore, PA, The Met in Pawtucket, RI, The Shrine in Tulsa, OK, The Mousetrap in Indianapolis, IN, Diamond Concert Hall in Louisville, KY, The Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, Quixotes in Denver, CO, The Rave in Milwaukee, Shank Hall in Milwaukee, SPACE in Evanston, Founder’s Brewing in Grand Rapids, the The Old Rock House in St Louis, MO amongst many others.

    So what or who is Terrapin Flyer? As you have likely surmised that is not simple to define. What is at the core of fundamentals of the band is the idea that the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia’s music still has plenty of life in it and that the music being so improvisational in nature can and should go to new places in each performance. No two Terrapin Flyer shows will ever be the same and you never know who might show up to jam at a show, but you can always count on a great time with some of the most recognized artists in the music community.

  • The Hooten Hallers

    The Hooten Hallers

    Rockabilly

    Columbia, MO trio The Hooten Hallers are known for hard-traveling and wild, energetic live shows, criss-crossing their way through North America and Europe with their seemingly endless tour schedule. They continue their decade-long search for their roots, drawing from the surrounding agricultural lifestyles, the river communities, the college kids and the tweakers that roam Columbia, Missouri, all in the looming foothills of the Ozark Mountains. 

     

    The myriad of influences in their music range from pre-war blues to punk rock to dark Americana, with a thematic penchant for the strange and the unexplained. In the same vein, the Hooten Hallers’ music isn’t quite Americana and it’s not quite punk, but a bit of both, fused together in a drunken tangle.

     

    The Hooten Hallers’ new self-titled album, out April 21, 2017 on Big Muddy Records, is the culmination of their experiences from 10 years of performing and travelling together.  They’ve injected their new album with the stories and characters they’ve been meeting on the road all this time. This combined with hometown pride is key to The Hooten Hallers’ ability to ride the line between DIY punk and American roots music. Produced by Johnny Walker (Soledad Brothers, All Seeing Eyes) and Kristo Baricevic (captain in chief at Big Muddy Records), the Hooten Hallers' latest effort showcases their evolution as musicians and songwriters. 

     

    John Randall’s demonically-tinged vocals and blues-inspired, manic guitar, and Andy Rehm's screaming falsetto vocals and steady, pounding drum beat keep the band focused on their unique blend of deep blues and country punk. Kellie Everett brings the power with the deep rumble of her baritone and bass saxophones. When The Hooten Hallers come to town, you know it’s gonna be a party!

  • Urban Pioneers

    Urban Pioneers

    Americana

    Mix one part Texas fiddle, one part Tennessee banjo, a splash of guitar, stir it with a doghouse bass and you have a swingin’ cocktail for your ears known as the Urban Pioneers. 
    “Hillbilly Swing Music is true to the title, filled with fun ditties and infectious reels that reawaken the simple joy of primitive American string music in a way that is invigorating and fun, yet still enriching with intelligent turns and deceptively-smart songwriting.
    Their fourth overall record...really is a step up in quality across the board from the trio, from the songwriting, to the production, to simply the audio grade of the recordings. It’s probably worthy of naming as their best record yet.
    A former classically trained violinist and an enlisted man in the Navy take time from trapping feral hogs on their property in North Texas to play a few songs for you to help spin the troubles away. This is what old time primitive country is all about.”-SavingCountryMusic.com

  • Kind Country

    Kind Country

    Bluegrass

    Kind music for kind people. Kind Country is a Minneapolis based band that plays American standards as well as their own brand of Cosmic American music. Since their formation in 2012, the band has focused on creating live performances with high levels of improvisation and energy gathering with a goal of creating a moment of musical bliss that can be shared by audience members and band alike. 

    Kind Country released their debut self titled album “Kind Country” in the fall of 2013. Since then they have been bringing their music on the road playing live performances at theaters, bars, auditoriums, festivals, and everywhere in between all throughout the United States. The band released their second independently released full length album, Hwy 7,  in the fall of 2015. Produced by Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles, Hwy 7, thrust the band further into a regional spotlight. The guys quickly followed up with a 5 track studio EP, Mountains, which was released in the spring of 2017. The band has no plans of stopping and will be releasing new material on a regular basis for the foreseeable future. 

    "Snagging the last spot and rounding out our not-very-extensive list is Kind Country, the Minneapolis-based jamgrass band forged in 2012. Originally started as a four-piece string band, the band expanded into six-member ensemble featuring Mitch Johnson (guitar), Brandon Johnson (guitar), Max Graham (mandolin), Joe Sheehan (bass), Chris Forsberg (violin), and Chris Wittrock (drums). These guys have some thing special going on, with the addition of drums allowing the group to go deeper in exploring how bluegrass can morph and intersect with other genres and giving them the freedom to create a sound that is truly their own. However, they still stay true to their string-band origins and bluegrass roots, with their energetic playing and the talent among the six players more-or-less guaranteeing a foot-stompin’ good time."-  Ming Lee Newcomb, Live for Live Music.

  • Joesph Huber

    Joesph Huber

    Bluegrass

    Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber was a founding member of the .357 String Band--a group that, despite its abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity and is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movement. Having moved from .357, Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafted songs under his own name and with his backing band. Whether it's irresistible, fiddle-driven, dancing tunes or honest, heart-wrenching "songwriter" songs, Huber spans the spectrum of 'Roots' music while preferring not to stay within the boundaries of any strict genre classification. 

    His lyricism and introspective writing style has received high acclaim from many Americana enthusiasts looking for a more substantive substitute to much of today's modern country. Maintaining a solid touring schedule, playing all throughout both the U.S. and all around Europe, Huber continues to gain positive press, including being listed on L.A. Weekly's '10 More Country Artists To Listen To (2014).' Blue Ridge Outdoor writes, “Songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Chris Smither, and John Prine can marvel listeners in the simplest of acoustic settings,...From time to time, I stumble upon a new singer/songwriter whose work warrants comparison to the luminaries on this list. ...Huber’s songwriting has me comparing him to my favorites above.”

     

    Huber's 4th solo release, 'The Suffering Stage' is a shift both in writing style and in it's filled-out production style, which looks beyond his usual minimalist folk recordings. It features many of Milwaukee's best players, such as Ryan Knudson on pedal steel; Dustin Dobernig on keys; Andrew Koenig on electric guitar; as well as his long-time touring band members--Jason Loveall on fiddle; and Eston Bennett on bass. It follows his early self-released material--'Bury Me Where I Fall' (2010) and 'Tongues Of Fire' (2012)--and  his 3rd album, 'The Hanging Road,' which was released under Nashville's 'Muddy Roots Recordings' label in Spring 2014.

  • The Coop

    The Coop

    Dance

    In between electronica, jazz, jam, and rock exists a merging of organic and digital sounds known as The Coop.

    The band’s creative mantra – Lost in Thought, Found in Sound – belies a process immersed in purpose but delivered in compulsion by drummer Jake Barinholtz, guitarist/rhythm laptop Danny Biggins, keyboardist Joe Re, and bassist/lead laptop Cason Trager. Formed in Chicago, the group’s synchronization of breakbeat, dub, jazz, and jamband rock culminates in musical bursts like 2011′s LP “Internalize,” and 2012′s EP, “A Fleeting Glimpse.”

    Most recently, 2013′s single “Succubus / Loose Chains,” begins with ominous synth lines and tinkling piano, and erupts with guitar and drums and thunderous bass samples that leading blog The Dankles described as “an even dosage of easy going jam and bass fueled electronica.” Live performances operate simultaneously in the realms of DJ’s and live bands; described as “live-glitch-hop aesthetic that runs rampant,” (The Untz) and “a high energy experience perfectly suited to the earliest hours of the morning” (Jambands.com).

          The repeated live recreation of the band’s songs has equipped them with the ability to record and produce themselves (both “A Fleeting Glimpse” and “Succubus / Loose Chains” were completely self-produced, with Cason acting as Lead Producer and Danny and Jake as Co-Producers). Acting as musicians, recording engineers, producers, and DJ’s, The Coop resembles a traveling audio house more than an old-fashioned band. Considering they contain all the musical ingredients needed for a self-sufficient creative vehicle,  it’s a wonder what The Coop will move onto next.

    Zombie Mañana

    Dance/Electronic

    Every morning, Zombie eats surreal for breakfast and then does its abstract workouts. Inconsistence is routine and the unknown is caffeine. No fear is the next frontier. PERSEVERE; embrace the blood, sweat, and tears. This half-band, half-dream seeks refuge from this place, this world where everything is a race. Tragedies and adversities taught me more than universities. Happiness and ecstasy comes from living with no jealousy. All it takes to be inspiring is to be inspired, and now is the time to rewire. With a head full of static, and a heart that weighs a ton, these omnifarious tunes may not be for everyone.

    DANCE MONKEY DANCE!

    featuring Doug Dicharry

    Dance Monkey Dance! was formed out of the necessity to create. Doug Dicharry spent years honing his chops in a successful international touring band, but needed to get back to his roots and rediscover his love for playing music. Even while becoming a talented multi-intrumentalist (drums, trombone, trumpet, mandolin, washboard, spoons), he decided to pick up the guitar and has been obsessively writing songs since.

    The guitar laid the foundation for what would become the core of DMD, but Doug craved a driving beat. So… he built the STOMPSTAGE!!! It’s an amplified mobile stage, which creates two unique percussive sounds: *boom – crack!* With soulful vocals, percussive guitar, loop rigs and the steady stompstage backbeat, he has penned an evolving repertoire of songs.

    Dance Monkey Dance! is the perfect name, because this monkey is literally dancing while playing for you.
