In 2004, I interviewed Derek and wrote up his 10 Commandments of Jam for Guitar World. Pretty right on and deep thinking, as per usual for DT. I’ll be posting more and more from my extensive GW archives.

With the free-flowing, technical heart of jazz and jam forms and the soul and spirit of blues rock, the new instrumental album, Core, by New York band, Arjun, screams “Play me again!” Mixed by underground hip-hop and jazz producer Scotty Hard and featuring John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood) on its title track, Core is distinguished by carefully crafted melodies designed to tell a story.

With so many talented bands out there, carving out a space in the jam arena can be a challenge these days. Just over a week ago though, I had the opportunity to play a show at Hank’s Pub with a sweet, new band called The New Outdoors, and these guys appear to be challenging the standard definition of jam a bit by mixing it with blues and a little twist of dirty, indie rock.
This trio has only been playing together for about six months, and I was initially surprised to see them take the stage with no bass (just drums and two guitars). They ripped out an hour-long original set of tasty jams though like it was nobody’s business, and Sean O’Brien even switched it up to play bass late in the set! Andrew Shough’s chill vocals were the cream and sugar to my coffee, especially while also playing guitar. His rich vocals are a standout and would lend themselves well to any number of acts. Ryan Magner is the centerpiece, holding them all together on the drums and driving each tune exactly where it needs to go. Together, the trio’s relaxed, smooth jams have a little funk and a little blues guitar making The New Outdoors easy to groove too! The oh-so-smooth guitar leads and fills take it up a few notches, and there’s a killer dirty, grungy, and almost psychedelic sound to their tunes that take it to the interesting and intriguing and “I want more” level! These cats are hitting the Dayton scene right now, and YOU should make it a point to catch an upcoming show, or two or three!

Today’s all about Blue Moon Soup, an acoustic folk/bluegrass quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio.
Yellow Springs is well known for producing some amazing musical experiences, and Blue Moon Soup is no exception! Here’s some info so you can get to know them a little better:
Members: Jon Bauman (Standup Bass, Vocals) | Robbie Marion (Fiddle, Vocals) | Brendan Moore (Mando, Vocals) | Justin Moon (Guitar, Vocals)
Lonely Mountain, Blue Moon Soup’s first LP, was released on Christmas Eve 2011 to broad acclaim. Although the band’s current primary focus is to broaden its reach in Ohio metro areas, they are crafting a second LP for a third quarter 2013 release, and continuing to reach out to new fans; young and old, near and far.
“The largest biological experiment man has ever entered into.”
Blue Moon Soup continues to be involved in a variety of charitable works, because as Jerry Garcia said, “Somebody has to do something, and it’s just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.”

Lyle Runner blazed a trail in May to become our Top Fan! He had some stiff competition, but he commented and liked and shared our posts and shared on our wall and really supported us all the way through May to win the top spot! Lyle currently performs in 2 local projects, Paradijm Shift and his solo (sometimes duo) acoustic act! Check out both of those projects on Facebook and give them some support, and I’m sure it will be returned!
Some great local acts volunteered their (only for sale) music as a reward to our May Top Fan, including Avian, The Broken Lights, and Cricketbows! That’s some serious awesomeness! To top it all off, we had a really cool donation from Miamisburg native, Chris A. of Chris A. Photography, of his book “A Vulgar Display of Power: Courage and Carnage at the Al Rosa Villa”! Lyle will be stocked up for a minute!
