Town Mountain and Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle

  • Town Mountain

    Town Mountain

    Bluegrass

    ASHEVILLE, NC

    --

    Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger,

    Town Mountain

    has earned raves for

    their hard-driving sound, their in-house songwriting a

    nd the honky-tonk edge

    that permeates their

    exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club

    or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of

    Town Mountain's music is the first and second generation

    of bluegrass spiced with country, old school

    rock

    n

    roll, and boogie-woogie. It's what else goes into th

    e mix that brings it all to life both on stage and

    on record and reflects the group's wide-ranging influences

    from the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and

    the ethereal lyrics of Robert Hunter, to the honest, vin

    tage country of Willie, Waylon, and Merle.

    The Bend Bulletin

    s Brian McElhiney says Town Mountain,

    has serious country and rock

    n

    roll DNA.

    Town Mountain features guitarist and vocalist

    Robert Greer

    , banjoist

    Jesse Langlais

    , mandolinist

    Phil

    Barker

    , fiddler

    Bobby Britt

    , and

    Zach Smith

    on bass.

    Town Mountain just finished recording their 6th studio a

    lbum at Echo Mountain Studios with roots music

    hero Caleb Klauder producing. Slated to release this Fal

    l, the album is full of new material and features

    several guest artists including Tyler Childers who co-wrot

    e one of the songs, Miles Miller (Sturgill

    Simpson, drummer), and other friends. They are also excit

    ed to be the host of the 2018 MerleFest

    Midnight Jam and will be performing at Joe Val Bluegrass

    Festival and John Hartford Memorial Festival

    among others in 2018.

    Their 5th studio album,

    Southern Crescent

    ,

    came out April 1, 2016 on LoHi Records. Produced and

    engineered by GRAMMY winner

    Dirk Powel

    l,

    Southern Crescent

    was recorded in Powell

    s studio

    The

    Cypress House

    in south-central Louisiana town of Breaux Bridge.

    Since it

    s release the band debuted

    on the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium stages

    in 2016 bringing their sound to new

    audiences.

    The critically acclaimed album debuted at #4 on the Bil

    lboard Bluegrass Chart while staying

    for ten weeks on the Americana Music Association's radio chart

    Top 40.

    This Asheville band killed it at the Ryman this summe

    r [2016] opening up the bluegrass series and they

    put out this stellar collection of original songs tha

    t asserts them as the hippest, bluest traditional bl

    uegrass

    band of their generation.

    In an era of bluegrass with manners, they cut with a

    serrated edge

    ,

    exclaims Nashville

    s Roots Radio

    s Craig Havighurst

    in his list of

    Essential Americana Albums We

    Loved in 2016.

    Town Mountain returned to the Grand Ole Opry in July 2

    017!

    Other albums include

    Leave The Bottle

    (Pinecastle Records 2012),

    Steady Operator

    (Pinecastle

    Records 2011), and

    Heroes & Heretics

    (October 2008). They also independently released a

    LIVE

    album

    (2014 from a show at Isis Music Hall in Asheville) as wel

    l as a two-song EP (2015) of Grateful Dead tunes

    called

    The Dead Sessions

    . Their debut album (June 2008) is entitled

    Original Bluegrass and Roots

    Country

    and KSUT/Durango Telegraph

    s Chris Aaland writes,

    No critic has coined a better phrase to

    describe their sound.

    While the members have taken the road less traveled whe

    n it comes to the mainstream or traditional

    purists, they

    ve been dubbed as "The Taco Stand Troubadours

    by Aaland (due to their frequent stops at

    such establishments) and he calls them

    one of those bands that has paid its dues and won o

    ver the

    Durango audience through the years, much like the Gourds an

    d Leftover Salmon.

    They have performed opening shows with Railroad Earth,

    Peter Rowan, Hard Working Americans,

    Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, Hackensaw Boys,

    Ralph Stanley and his Clinch

    Mountain Boys, The Del McCoury Band, The Seldom Scene, The I

    nfamous Stringdusters, Bobby Hicks,

    The Steep Canyon Rangers, and Jim Lauderdale among others

    .

    What has become one of the group

    s more memorable live performance songs is their cover of

    Bruce

    Springsteen

    s

    I

    m On Fire,

    which they first recorded in 2008

    s

    Heroes & Heretics,

    with Greer

    s

    distinctive Southern drawl at the forefront. The track has re

    ached over 3.3 million listens on Spotify

    .

    The

    Atlantic

    s

    Matt Vasilogambros

    writes,

    Bruce Springsteen is a natural fit for bluegrass

    ...

    Even the Boss

    s earlier music had hints of folk influences. Just list

    en to

    I

    m On Fire

    ”...

    I keep turning to one cover, which

    I admittedly listen to more often than the original.

    It

    s from Town Mountain

    ...

    They dropped the

    synthesizer, added a banjo, a fiddle, and another singe

    r for harmony, and made a gem.

    Another fan favorite is their Jimmy Martin-esque origina

    l

    Lawdog,

    penned by Barker in 2012,

    which music journalist

    Juli Thanki instantly called an

    unearthed classic

    when the album was

    released. They recorded a

    live version of the song at WAMU

    s Bluegrass Country Radio

    in 2013 which

    has over 125,000 views and continues to be a barn bur

    ner to this day with the entire crowd singing along

    as barker sings,

    I make my livin driving, I

    m a bluegrass music man

    ...

    Chasin the horizon, for another

    one night stand

    ...

    I got a lot of miles to travel, and I

    m runnin

    a little late

    ...

    And a no show gets me

    nothin, so don

    t you get in my way. I got no time for ya lawdog

    ...”

    While it remains a bluegrass band in all things instru

    mentation and touring the bluegrass and festival

    circuit, it's

    sound crosses into American roots and even outlaw country,

    perhaps as a result of the gritty,

    mournful tone of Greer

    s vocals.

    Durango

    s KDUR radio

    s DJ, Bryant Liggett says,

    It is reminiscent of

    the 1970s truck-driving film sound, the perfect accompani

    ment to a car chase through the south á la

    Smokey and the Bandit.

  • Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle

    Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle

    Americana

    Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle is a Cincinnati based, 4 piece Americana/Folk band that blends the tradition of heroes like Woody Guthrie and Mississippi John Hurt w/ contemporary flavor. In its short existence, the band has grown its fan base by getting out in front of folks. Whether it's the great variety of local shows or their regional touring, they always bring high energy onto every stage on which they perform.  

    Buffalo Wabs (aka Matt Wabnitz) spearheads this group, playing guitar and taking most of the vocal duties. Casey Campbell, Ian Mathieu, and Scott Risner comprise The Price Hill Hustle side of the equation. The group is deeply rooted in the tradition of Old Time pioneers; however, the energy they bring to a live performance could burn down the rowdiest honky-tonk in town.

    The four members met through the Cincinnati music community at open mics and seeing each other at other shows around town. They've all had different musical projects of their own. After joining each other onstage at several venues they realized the chemistry was undeniable. They began playing more and more, and it seemed as though the more they played, the more they played. Crowds were hypnotized immediately.  

    "The Hustle," as they are often referred to, brings something uniquely different that is rarely found with bands. The band brings its own vibe everywhere it goes. It's almost a culture in itself. Followers have even begun to invent their own vernacular; for example, you may hear someone say they got "Hustled" last night. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Getting "Hustled" is just one's way of saying, "I saw Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle and they TORE IT UP!" Hopefully you can get yourself "Hustled" real soon.
