All the way from Folly Beach, South Carolina Dangermuffin brought their Organic, sand-blasted roots rock, with a sweet jam spread music to the KRVM studio. Dangermuffin is a trio made up of songwriter, guitarist and lead vocalist Dan Lotti, lead guitarist Mike Sivilli, and percussionist Steven Sandifer. With one foot rooted in southern Americana and the other hangin' out with the jam band sound, Dangermuffin has the groove for a good time.

Routes and Branches Play List 06/12/10

The Ashland based band One Horse Shy will be in town this next week touring behind their new CD Better Life. I had the chance to talk with Bob Evoniuk this past week about the new album which I featured on today's show along with some tracks from both of their albums. For a band who has members living 300 miles apart these days, they sound more together on this second album. Manda Bryn and Cris Kelly are still the primary song writers for the band with the rest of the band adding their parts as they develop each song. One Horse Shy's high energy shows are bound to get you up and dancing.

A new band coming to our area that was highly recommended to me is the group 18 Switchbacks. They are a new bluegrass (and more) band from Boulder, Colorado. Their self titled debut EP has seven smoking cuts on it and I featured the lead track "Goin' Down The Mountain" and a second called "Big Creek Ranch".

Routes and Branches Play List 06/05/10

I took my wife up to Portland for her birthday on Thursday to see Lewi Longmire and his band for their regular (6-8pm.)Thursday gig at the Laurelthirst pub. We managed to get the last table before the place completely filled up as the band started. From the first song to the end the dance floor was completely filled with everyone having a great time. Lewi and band mixed it up doing both originals and covers from the likes of Jimi Hendrix to Bob Dylan. We asked folks around us, Is it like this every Thursday night? They replied with a resounding YES!! I suppose it is a good thing that I live so far away, otherwise I would become a regular too. Sorta like church.

This week I also had the Whopner County Country Alstars into the KRVM studio. They have recently released their 3rd album called 7-10 Split. Ten more great Whopner County originals about everyday life from "Deception" to "The Whiskey Wins Again" with that great Whopner Country sound backing them up. In the studio they played one of my favorite Gregg Vollstedt songs called "I'll Be With You Tonight".
