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.
Tour has just begun and I fear in a month Dead and Company could be done. An editorial by Kevin Long Image created by Van Rapp I take absolute no pleasure in writing anything negative about the one true love of my life. I don't do it to lessen anybody’s experience, I am just one person who has perspective and passion. But, Houston we have a problem. I realize they are only two shows in and it's been an emotional week for the band. I am such a fanatic that I gave both shows good reviews because buzzed, excited and in all good company I heard what I wanted to. Upon further review, I have listened to both nights a few times sober and they are less than stellar. In fact, they are a train wreck with moments of the morphine you get after the metaphorical crash. To be blunt, they sound like the band we all were afraid of when we first learned of Mayer’s involvement. I was worried about John being tired after his demanding schedule. It’s much more than fatigue, he has lost his chops al…
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…
