KBCO Presents Lord Huron

Lord Huron

SOLD OUT
Thursday August 6th, 2015 8:00 PM
(Doors at 6:00)

With Special Guest: San Fermin

Ben Schneider conjured Lord Huron from the depths of Lake Huron during a trip to his family home in northern Michigan in 2010. Ancient memories, smoke over the moon and nights full of perilous laughter all bolstered the brew from which Lord Huron emerged. Ben brought Lord Huron back with him to Los Angeles, where strange young things are known to flourish, unhindered.

As the songs grew, so did the need for a band to play them. Answering the call ringing out from California, grand brethren from years past, friends and fellow Michiganders, Mark Barry, Miguel Briseno and Tom Renaud, left their respective paths, or bent each road to their own will, to reconvene out west. An old crew reformed in a new harbor.

After a pair of EPs, a debut album, Lonesome Dreams saw release in 2012. Tours followed that found the boys in blistering deserts, reveling in sinister paradises, wandering frozen coasts and lost among the hanging fog of bygone forests. Who can say but the soles of their shoes how far they travelled and how wide?

In 2014, trail-weary but intrepid, Lord Huron set up camp deep in Los Angeles at Whispering Pines Studios to notch their latest songs and abet the journeys of others. Lord Huron will release the next chapter of their adventures, Strange Trails, in April 2015.

The Travelin’ McCourys featuring Billy Nershi

The Travelin' McCourys with Special Guests

Friday August 7th, 2015 8:00 PM (Doors at 6:00)
with Hog MaGundy and Blue Grama

The Travelin’ McCourys do not stand still. They are on the road—and online—entertaining audiences with live shows that include some of the best musicians and singers from all genres. It’s always different, always exciting, and always great music.

No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo continue their father’s work—a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives. And with fiddler Jason Carter and bassist Alan Bartram, the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful. But the band is now combining their sound with others to make something fresh and rejuvenating.

They recently played with the Allman Brothers at Wanee Fest and then brought the house down at Warren Haynes’ Annual Christmas Jam, an invitation only Southern Rock homecoming.  Their jam with the Lee Boys was hailed by many as the highlight of the evening, and once word of the live video hit the streets, sent new fans online to watch a supercharged combination of sacred steel, R&B, and bluegrass. They’ve also performed with Warren Haynes, Phish, and have a tour scheduled with the aforementioned Lee Boys. Ronnie McCoury described it as “peanut butter and jelly.” It was just right.

They can push forward so far because their roots are so deep. The band has a confidence that only comes with having paid their dues with twenty years on the bluegrass road. Other groups and new fans hear this immediately—the tight rhythm, the soulful material, and the confidence in taking bluegrass from the safety of the shore into uncharted waters.

KUNC Presents Hazel Miller Band & Chris Daniels and the Kings feat Freddi Gowdy

Hazel Miller Band & Chris Daniels and the Kings feat Freddi Gowdy

Sunday August 9th, 2015 4:30 PM (Doors at 3:30)
with Goatz! and Williams Reserve

Hazel Miller is not just a great singer; "she is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought after performer in Colorado for the past 30 years; ” Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul” a quote from the Rocky Mountain News. Hazel Miller Band was formed more than 2 decades ago. HMB performs an eclectic blend of Jazz, R&B, Blues and original music. Hazel Miller Band’s music is designed to make the audience dance and sing-along. They play music that excites and involves the listener.

The first highlight of 2015 was Ms. Miller’s singing of the national anthem at the inauguration of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, January, 13, 2015. Later on that night the Governor’s Inaugural Concert featured the Lumineers, String Cheese Incident and Big Head Todd and the Monsters with Ms. Miller. Ms. Miller performed at the FIS Alpine Ski Championships in Beaver Creek, Colorado on February 15,, 2015; with an estimated international television audience of 180,000,000 viewers. Ms. Miller has been chosen to record a welcome greeting for visitors taking the trains to the main terminal at Denver International Airport.

This will be her first ever appearance at The Mish!

Chris Daniels: is not related to Charlie or Jack or Bill — though often asked that question. Starting as a 17 year old songwriter and guitarist back in the 70s when he played with David Johansen, (before the New York Dolls) and later with Russell Smith (after The Rhythm Aces), Chris has preformed thousands of shows, touring 40 out of every 52 weeks with his current band Chris Daniels & the Kings for 25 years. He has worked making records and performing with some of the most respected musicians in the business including Sonny Landreth, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, David Bromberg, Al Kooper, Bill Payne, and Don Was to name only a few. He was the founder of the Telluride After Hours Jam playing that festival on and off for ten years beginning in 1975.

Ott

With opening acts Kaminanda and Templo
Friday August 14th, 2015 8:00 (Doors at 6:00)

Ott has been messing about with sound boxes every day for as long as he can remember. Having spent the ‘90s flitting between his day­job as a freelance studio engineer and long weekends under the stars at psychedelic trance parties, the obvious next step, as the millennium turned, was to create music of his own from the jumble of sounds which filled his head.

 

After teaming up with Twisted Records, 2002 saw the release of the acclaimed ‘Hallucinogen In Dub’ album, followed in short order by his first solo effort, ‘Blumenkraft’ in 2003. 2008 saw the release of ‘Skylon’ and in 2011 the album ‘Mir’ was born.

 

A pattern has formed: every four years or so an album coalesces from the chaos, heads out into the world and takes on a life of its own. 2015 is one of those years.

 

Financed by a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, Ott built a new studio, filled it with vintage sound­creation toys and locked the door, vowing not to emerge until a new record was born. The original 6 month deadline came and went but, a year after he started, the thing is finished.

 

August 11th will see the release of Ott’s latest studio album ­ details of which will emerge over the coming weeks.

KBCO & KUNC Presents Dawes & James Vincent McMorrow

Dawes & James Vincent McMorrow

Wednesday August 19th, 2015 8:00 PM (Doors at 6:00)

On Dawes new album: 
“And may all your favorite bands stay together,” sings Taylor Goldsmith on the title track to Dawes’ fourth album, All Your Favorite Bands, on their own HUB Records, harking back to a time when that very special rock group helped define who you were, expressing the joy and passion the foursome put into the release. “Your favorite band can identify you, express how you see yourself,” explains Goldsmith, who co-wrote the song with Jonny Fritz and is the sole author of the album’s other eight tracks. “They enable you to articulate your feelings through the way they play their instruments and the lyrics.” On All Your Favorite Bands, Dawes manage to transcend their well-documented Southern California influences to establish their own sound and themes, which range from the glass half full optimism of the first single, “Things Happen” and the minor-chord tension of “I Can’t Think About It Now” (featuring background vocals from Gillian Welch and the McCrary Sisters) to the soulful gospel of “Waiting for Your Call,” the rocking tongue-in-cheek lyrics of “Right On Time” and the epic, Dylan-esque set piece, “Now That It’s Too Late, Maria.” Produced by David Rawlings (Dave Rawlings Machine, Gillian Welch, Robyn Hitchcock, Old Crow Medicine Show, Willie Watson) at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Dawes recorded these new songs after they had already been road-tested in front of live audiences in intimate venues from Sonoma to Santa Barbara, with Rawlings in tow. The producer even played guitar solos on two of the tracks (including that jangling noir Epiphone acoustic on “Somewhere Along the Way”), with Richard Bennett on acoustic guitar and Paul Franklin on pedal steel, also contributing.

On James Vincent McMorrow: 
The Mexican border: on one side, the contained security of El Paso Texas, the safest city in the United States. And on the other, the ruthless bustle of Juárez, where the reign of drug cartels have seen it escalate into one of the most dangerous communities in the world. In the no man's land near the border, there lies a shady pecan farm -- and it is here that 'Post Tropical', the strange but beautiful second album from James Vincent McMorrow, was brought to life. 

2010's 'Early in the Morning' took James from pushing trolleys at an airport and recording in an isolated cabin near the Irish Sea to a number 1, gold-certified debut album, and a nomination for Ireland's Choice Music Prize. Along the way, there were shows everywhere from the Royal Festival Hall to Later...with Jools Holland, and a breakout hit in the charity cover of Steve Winwood's 'Higher Love.' McMorrow's first record was the formative sounds of a songwriter who suddenly found people giving a damn. "I'm so proud of that album," he says now, "but I never longed to be a guy with a guitar. You play these songs live as best you can, and suddenly you're a Folk musician. But the texture of this record is completely different. This is the kind of stuff I actually listen to." 

'Post Tropical' is a stunning piece of work -- built up slowly but spontaneously from hundreds of non-linear sound files and disparate lyric pages, resulting in ten meticulously-crafted songs. Its broadened horizons may come as a surprise to everyone but McMorrow himself, who has (amongst other things) harboured a lifelong love of hip-hop and atmospheric R&B. "I found a zip drive recently, which dates back to before I made my first record, and I'd re-recorded every single part of the N.E.R.D album -- apart from the vocals -- just for the joy of it. I wanted to give this record the feel and movement of the R&B records that I love." 

It's a step forward that is immediate apparent on album opener and first single 'Cavalier' -- a brooding twist on the Slow-Jam, which builds quietly from hushed keys and hand-claps to soaring brass, beats and McMorrow's idiosyncratic falsetto. Across the album, the sounds and melodies evolved from a painstaking process of building texture: there are 808s on the haunting 'Red Dust,' looped piano on 'Looking Out,' and 50 mandolins made to sound like a waterfall on 'The Lakes.' McMorrow's sometimes-surreal songwriting holds each element in place, on album which he wrote, produced, and played virtually every instrument. Rarely has chaos sounded this controlled. 

And it was on a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border that McMorrow brought this collection of sounds and ideas turned them into 'Post Tropical.' The farm, which has hosted the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House and James' then-neighbour Dave Sitek, was to lend a unique quality to the record; audible in the low frequencies of 200-carriage freight trains or the birds nesting in the studio rafters, but felt more deeply across the mood and culture of the album itself. "It was compelling," James recalls. "The cartel used to carry drugs through the farm, because it was under the cover of trees, and you could walk down to the border even now and at certain points someone would throw cocaine to you. Everybody knew somebody who had been shot, and what struck us most was just how part of normal life these stories are."

Sound Remedy is an American electronic music producer based out of Los Angeles, California. Hailing from Chicago, SR has been crafting his sound since the young age of 16, but only started to produce music fulltime 2 years ago. Despite obtaining a degree in finance from one of the nation’s elite business schools, SR opted to take a risk and pursue his true passion; music. Being that both of his parents are graduates of Juilliard School of Music and full time Chicago Symphony Orchestra players, this decision may have been in the cards all along.

Sound Remedy has made a name for himself by composing tracks that defy the laws of the traditional dance music. His epic creations can be likened to enthralling musical journey’s that captivate the listener from start to finish. There is truly no end in sight when it comes to the rapid growth of the Sound Remedy movement.

Oskar Blues Presents The Motet

The Motet

with special guest The California Honeydrops

Friday August 28th & Saturday August 29th, 2015 at 8:00 PM (Doors at 6:00 PM)

2 day passes Sold Out

The Motet
Hailing from Colorado, The Motet is a world-class Improvisational funk band that has dedicated more than a decade to the healing powers of funky dance music. Although the early years of the band saw a constantly revolving cast of musicians, the most recent incarnation has been touring the country for the last several years developing a new and unique style of music with roots in funk, afro-beat, disco, electronic music, and soul. This new Motet has quickly gained a reputation for throwing infectious dance parties everywhere they go, creating a deep rapport between band and audience. 

With the recent release of their 7th album, The Motet has once again showcased their commitment to pushing the sonic envelope while remaining dedicated to the musical traditions that have defined their sound. The band’s decision to call the album The Motet is a reflection that the group has finally fully manifested. The album is a truly collaborative effort, with each member contributing equally to the writing process. In addition, the band spent hundreds of hours in the studio meticulously crafting vintage tones that hearken back to the glory days of funk music. These seven musicians form what is undoubtedly the strongest, most cohesive incarnation of The Motet to date. Whether you’ve loved The Motet for years or you’re just tuning in, listen up. You haven’t heard The Motet like this, and you won’t be disappointed.

The California Honeydrops
The California Honeydrops don’t just play music—they throw parties. Led by dynamic vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski, and drawing on diverse musical influences from Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line, the Honeydrops bring vibrant energy and infectious dance-party vibes to their shows. They’ve taken the party all over the world: on 9 European tours, featured slots at such premiere festivals as Monterey Jazz, High Sierra, and Outside Lands, and recent performances supporting B.B. King, Dr. John, Buddy Guy, and Allen Toussaint. Whether in those high-profile performances or in more intimate venues where the band itself can leave the stage and get down on the dance floor, the California Honeydrops’ shared vision and purpose remain: to make the audience dance and sing.

The Honeydrops have come a long way since guitarist and trumpeter Lech Wierzynkski and drummer Ben Malament started busking in an Oakland BART station, but the band has stayed true to that organic, street-level feel. With the additions of Johnny Bones on tenor sax and clarinet, Lorenzo Loera on keyboards, and Beau Bradbury on bass, they’ve built a powerful full-band sound to support Wierzynski’s vocals.

 Listening to Lech sing, it can be a surprise that he was born in Warsaw, Poland, and raised by Polish political refugees. He learned his vocal stylings from contraband American recordings of Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, and Louis Armstrong, and later at Oberlin College and on the club circuit in Oakland, California. Bringing all those influences together with the rest of the band’s diverse experiences into a unified musical vision, the California Honeydrops expect to play parties for a long time.

KBCO Presents Jimmy Cliff with Special Guests

Thursday September 10th, 2015 8:00 PM (Doors at 6:00)

“I got one more shot at the goal/Straight from my soul/I’m in control,” sings reggae legend Jimmy Cliff on “One More,” the lead track from REBIRTH, the new Universal Music Enterprises album from the Grammy-winning musician, actor, singer, songwriter, producer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, produced by punk icon Tim Armstrong, of Rancid and Operation Ivy fame.

 The release, his first studio album in seven years, is the next step in their collaboration on last year’s Sacred Fire EP, an effort Rolling Stone called Cliff’s “best music in decades… [his] tenor still soars.” With the groundbreaking 1972 film The Harder They Come celebrating its 40th anniversary, Cliff—who starred in the movie and contributed the title cut, “You Can Get It If You Really Want,” “Many Rivers to Cross” and “Sitting in Limbo” to the soundtrack—is still going strong in a career that has spanned almost 50 years and includes his native Jamaica’s highest honor, the Order of Merit. In REBIRTH’s autobiographical “Reggae Music,” Cliff recounts going to see famed Jamaican producer Leslie Kong in 1962 to convince him to work with him, releasing Cliff’s first hit, “Hurricane Hattie,” when he was just 14.

“I have not become the artist I believe I am,” he told Rolling Stone last year. “I’m not done at all. I want to become a stadium act.”

 REBIRTH is the next step in that direction.

KBCO Presents David Grisman Bluegrass Experience & Jeff Austin Band featuring Danny Barnes, Eric Thorin and Ross Martin

David Grisman Bluegrass Experience & Jeff Austin Band

Sunday September 13th, 2015 at 6:00 PM (Doors at 4:00)

For nearly half a century, mandolinist/composer/bandleader/producer David Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. His musical range is wide and deep - embracing many styles, genres, and traditions.
 
An acoustic pioneer and innovator, David forged a unique personal artistic path, skillfully combing elements of the great American music/art forms - jazz and bluegrass with many international flavors and sensibilities to create his own distinctive idiom - "Dawg" music (the nickname given him by Jerry Garcia). In doing so, he's inspired new generations of acoustic string musicians, while creating his own niche in contemporary music.

Former Yonder Mountain String Band mandolinist & front-man Jeff Austin is unstoppable. He is celebrated for his fleet fingers and penchant for improvisation, but those qualities also speak volumes about how he chooses to live. Austin has cultivated his natural musical abilities and allowed himself to be driven by his boldest instincts. In this way, he has been able to build positive, exciting momentum around his life’s greatest passion. 

“I love writing a three-minute song with a hook that would grab a five-hundred-pound marlin as much as I like writing something that goes, ‘okay, after the bridge, it’s going to open up and just go wide.”

Indeed, “wide” is what Jeff Austin is all about. He wants new and different, complex and interesting. He wants everything the music world has to offer, and he’s willing to work hard to get it.

theNEWDEAL

Friday September 18th, 2015 8:00 PM (Doors at 6:00)

With jackLNDN

With over 1400 legendary late nights, sold-out clubs and triumphant festivals under their belts, theNEWDEAL returns with a passion in 2015. Recently released tracks “Mercury Switch” and “Sabotage the System” offer a preview of their upcoming fall studio release which bassist Dan Kurtz describes as their “most creative” endeavor to date. “In the last few months we've been pushing ourselves to work with new sounds, new styles, new ways of arranging jams, and the stuff we've come up with has felt great and exciting to us as a result.  We're listening back to the board tapes of all the shows and finding the parts, even if they're just a couple of seconds long, that sound the most inspiring and then building studio recordings around them.  In some cases we'll glue a bit from one show in one city to another completely unrelated piece from another town, and create something we'd never have come up with in either just a live or just a studio setting.”

Keyboardist Jamie Shields agrees: “I think we've come up with a way to take the best from both the live and studio worlds and make something that's going to have the energy of a live show, but shaped in a way we could only do in the studio. theNEWDEAL has always been about development. When we’re performing on stage our goal is always to create a fresh musical idea and see in real-time how we can develop it - melodically, harmonically and structurally. Because we approach every show with an improvisational mindset, we know that every night brings a different concert, a different vibe and a different audience experience. Even with all those variables, it always ends up sounding like a New Deal show; exciting, driving and incredibly danceable!”

theNEWDEAL first began in Toronto in 1999, quickly gaining support from Toronto’s underground club scene as pioneers in electronica, recreating the DJ experience with live, improvised music. Soon the band brought their interpretation of Electro House, Trance, Breakbeat and Drum & Bass to the US, where they were embraced by the crowds at NYC’s Wetlands Preserve and cultivated a loyal following in the American jam scene.

After twelve years of touring, theNEWDEAL took a hiatus in 2011; Dan spent much of the next few years touring the world with Electropop band Dragonette. When theNEWDEAL returned to stages in 2014 they brought on board a new drummer in Dragonette’s Joel Stouffer.

Kyle Hollingsworth Band + The Magic Beans

Saturday September 19th, 2015 8:00 PM (Doors at 6:00)

Kyle Hollingsworth Band

Thirty years ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. Since then, with a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent, with the ability to contribute, collaborate, compose, and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has allowed him unrestricted access to the world of music, and has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres. Those who’ve seen SCI know that they can jerk from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. “In the jam world, where there are no set ways of doing things, we’re not afraid to move in and out of genres,” he says, “and because of that I’ve learned to be creative, not only onstage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to.”

His recent release, titled The There’s Now, finds the musician coming in to his own. With solid song material and a slamming new band, Kyle is making his mark in the new, always-evolving music scene. Then There’s Now delivers a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes and seamlessly displays his growth as a musician and as a songwriter. 

The Magic Beans

Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and amped up dance music, The Magic Beans are as unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies. The group’s diverse approach to music leaves no genres off the table and no one left out; many times resulting in one song spanning several styles within a singular composition. The Beans use no pre-recorded tracks or computers in favor of a more traditional approach to music. Original songwriting, diverse instrumentation and a deep musical bond between the musicians is what sets the band apart. Fans have coined terms like “spacefunk”, “ameritronica”, and “groove grass” to try to describe the music they hear from The Magic Beans, and the band embraces these terms and all input from their fanbase to create what is truly a collaborative musical effort. Music that moves your mind and your hips while inspiring a good time is what The Magic Beans are all about. After all, “Music is magic, magic is life (Jimi Hendrix).”
