I love that Leftover Salmon have found their twelfth wind and are having as much fun as their devoted fanbase. They started Jam-Grass well over twenty years ago and life has thrown this band many a curveballs and enough tragedy, it would have ended most bands careers. But there is something special that surrounds this band and their fans. Here is the latestest press release with links to all the fun ahead.

About Leftover Salmon: Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Formed in Boulder at the end of 1989, the Colorado slamgrass pioneers took their form of aggressive bluegrass to rock and roll bars at a time when it wasn’t so common, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jamgrass genre. Leftover Salmon is: Vince Herman (vocals, acoustic guitar, washboard); Drew Emmitt (vocals, acoustic and electric mandolin, electric guitar, fiddle); Andy Thorn (vocals, acoustic and electric banjo); Greg Garrison (vocals, acoustic and electric bass); Alwyn Robinson (drums) and Erik Deutsch (Keyboard).
About Chris Mrachek: Official archivist of Leftover Salmon, Chris Mrachek was always an avid collector of all great bluegrass, jam-band,new-grass music. Chris began his relationship with Leftover Salmon in 1992 when he discovered the band while living in Alaska. By the late 1990’s, he had become so passionate about Leftover Salmon that he amassed what was likely the largest private collection Leftover Salmon live recordings. After meeting and becoming close with the band in Alaska in 2000, Chris eventually moved to Montana and spent the following years recording as many Leftover Salmon projects that he could. In 2016, Chris and his expansive vault became the official archivist for Leftover Salmon.
Amazon Announces the cast for their Upcoming Grateful Dead T.V. Show.
This was my April Fool's Joke!
Amazon just released the cast members that will play the Grateful Dead band members in their upcoming show about the band's life. I am not an acting coach but I must admit there are more than a few head scratchers. Before we announce the cast, one odd moment actually delayed the production team from casting the respective roles of the show. When executive producer and GD member Bobby Weir insisted on playing Jerry Garcia. The uncomfortable week of dealing with this unrealistic request came to an end when Bill Walton pointed out to Bobby that he has in fact been playing that role already since Jerry untimely death in 1995. One thing Bob was adamant about was picking the actor to play him. He insisted on 80's child star Corey Feldman, Bobby was quoted of saying "Just watch "Dream a Little Dream" 1 threw 6 if you think he does not have the chee…
Some As#hole Screamed "Free Bird" at a Recent Bob Dylan Show. The only actual news is Bob obliged and played a note-perfect rendition of the dueling guitar solo in Lynyrd Skynyrd's Rock Anthem. Watch!
Bob Dylan has never met a cover he did not like. He has incorporated countless tunes by many artists in his live shows since the early sixties. Ironically, the Never Ending Tour is supporting Dylan's latest release Fallen Angels which is his second installment of Frank Sinatra classics. I have had the pleasure of seeing Dylan live well over a hundred shows and witnessed him cover everybody from The Grateful Dead to Warren Zevon and all genres in-between. But I never thought I would hear the Great One cover " Free Bird". Of course, some asshole yelled to hear it or be funny. Hell, maybe he was trying to impress a date and had a low I.Q. Whatever the reason he yelled it, is less fascinating than why Dylan played it. I think he finally got sick of hearing song…
BONNAROO 2016: More than 100 arrested, cited in first few hours.
Same as it Ever Was..... The Tennessean is already reporting over 100 arrests and Bonnaroo has barely begun. That stat was given around 2 p.m yesterday after a few hours of the festival. It is not clear if they count the kids they arrest just driving there. "The arrests, Knott said many were made overnight, included disorderly conducts and illegal possession of controlled substances including harder drugs like LSD and Molly." "Law enforcement overseeing the 15th annual Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tenn. said Thursday that they've cited and arrested more than 100 people less than one day into the event."Last year they only made 75 arrests the whole festival. This year seems to be a different story as they eclipsed last year's arrests in a few hours. When asked about medical emergencies Knott was quoted,"We've been lucky we haven't had any so far, but we are on guard becau…
