Anders Osborne is....
New Orleans own poet laureate/tune-smith, vocalist supreme, guitarist exemplar, leader of the band, and the real deal in a musical landscape filled with mediocre artists. Nashville's City Winery was the site of his 2016 tour opener and his performance there bodes well for his tour.

Celebrating 50 Years of The Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead at Soldier Field - Fare Thee Well Tour
This past July marked arguably one of the most epic spectacles in the history of live rock n’ roll.  Over the Fourth of July weekend The Grateful Dead reunited for the last three of five shows to mark their 50th anniversary in what they said are the final shows that they will be playing as a complete group on a short tour they called Fare Thee Well.  They chose Soldier Field in Chicago in Chicacgo, Illinois as the venue for these magnanimous performances because it is the last location that The Grateful Dead played with late front man Jerry Garcia before his untimely passing.   The group brought on Trey Anastasio of Phish fame as a Jerry replacement, as well as keys players Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti.  Despite the pressure of having such large shoes to fill, Trey did a great job singing lead vocals on many songs as well as switching off lead guitar with Bob Weir.  With around 70,000 people attending each night, these shows were truly for the record books.  They could not have chosen a better location.  The warm summer nights and beautiful scenery including the surrounding skyscrapers looming in the background provided the perfect aesthetic for a phenomenal  musical experience.

Jack Pearson had just returned from 2 nights of New Years Eve shows at the Beacon Theater in New York with Warren Haynes. Comments on the “net”/Facebook about Jack from these shows were numerous and highly complimentary. “Wow, where has this cat been hiding”, etc.

Review by Craig Havighurst (by permission) of Music City Roots

I was privileged to attend and photograph John McCuen's 70th birthday party show held at Music City Roots. Normally I would write my own review but Craig Havighurst's from his Roots blog was so good that I asked for and received permission to reprint it below. There is a link to the original Music City Roots blog which I encourage all to check out now and for future shows.

The Stolen Faces made a short but sweet Thanksgiving tour and ended up doing one more Saturday night at the Flying Harpoon in Orange Beach, AL.
Nashville's premier “Dead” cover band was warmly welcomed back to Orange Beach's coolest bar where even the dog had dreads.

During this show at Third and Lindsley Pat Bergeson, one of Nashville's great guitar players, who was sitting in playing harmonica, called Jack Pearson “the greatest”. Jack, in his humble unassuming way, just smiled at the compliment, handed Pat his new white Fender, and asked Pat to play one for the folks.


Modest Mouse Rocks Seattle

Modest Mouse played a private party to a small crowd in their hometown of Seattle. They played for several hours and sounded fantastic. This is one hell of a live band!
