Seedie Wolf has joined the band! We are excited to have his venerable drumming skills and with that a new photo shoot was lined up and accomplished by Derrick Hornyan.

Sad News :( 

Gretchen (Red Gretsch guitar) which Michael has had since 2010 (over 600 shows) has hit the ground one too many times and is out of the lineup for a bit. Filling in is Penelope (Black Gretsch) and Bellatrix (newly acquired Gibson Les Paul). Yes, Michael affectionately gives his guitars pet names.

Bellatrix is tuned to Open E tuning as a decent amount of material over the years has been written in this tuning.

Wayside, Like It, Bad Penny, Hustler, Straight and Narrow, Don't Turn Away, Ladies and Gentlemen and Better Things are all songs played on this guitar among a few covers. Do you have a favorite?

 

We wish everyone good health, good fortune and peace! We hope to see you out there!

Michael, Steve and Seedie

Moonshine Bandits:Backwoods bravado, patriot’s pride, country soul, keg-thumping beats — these are the qualities that Moonshine Bandits have championed since they began their journey. Armed with a hybrid arsenal of country and hip hop fusion, the California duo of Dusty ‘Tex’ Dahlgren and Brett ‘Bird’ Brooks are back with the grittiest, spirited and distinctly grass-roots release of their sixteen year campaign of musical badassery – “Gold Rush.”

DANIELLE NICOLE BAND
Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Danielle Nicole has spent her life making music and pleasing fans, domestically and abroad. Her stunning new album, The Love You Bleed on Forty Below Records, comprises twelve heartfelt tracks exploring themes of love, loss and perseverance.

The new album was produced by Tony Braunagel (Taj Mahal, Eric Burdon, Robert Cray) and co-produced by Nicole, with John Porter (B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Bryan Ferry) mixing. The tight knit quartet on the songs features Danielle on bass guitar and vocals; Brandon Miller (electric, acoustic, pedal steel, mandolin, and 12-string guitar), Damon Parker (keyboards); Go-Go Ray (drums), and Stevie Blacke (violin and cello).

Nicole was initially influenced by her parents. She recalls seeing her father playing blues guitar and her mother singing with the group Little Eva. With her two brothers, she became a member of Trampled Under Foot, which found initial popularity in the Midwest. Danielle embarked on her solo career with Wolf Den (2015), which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Blues charts and amassed 7.5 million Spotify streams. Cry No More (2018) followed, the record was nominated for a Grammy in the contemporary blues category and debuted at number one in the Billboard Blues Charts – it also boasts over Spotify streams in excess of 10 million.

Nicole has been inducted into the Kansas City Hall of Fame and has been the recipient of seven Blues Music Awards. She recently did a duet with Dion on the upcoming song “I Aim To Please,” and recorded the opening track in the forthcoming Peter Hutchings film “Which Brings Me To You.”

There has been no shortage of praise; Guitar World stated, “Danielle Nicole has won respect and admiration throughout the American blues scene for her soulful, inventive playing and tireless work ethic.” Blues Music Magazine effused, “Nicole brings it, bakes it, and serves it up blazing on a silver soulrocking platter.” The Kansas City Star declared, “Blues and soul vocalists tend to improve as they age. Bettye LaVette is among the artists who became increasingly believable as she matured. Danielle Nicole appears to be following in her footsteps.” And the legendary Koko Taylor gets right to the point: “That girl gets down to the nitty gritty!”
