In the last couple of years, I’ve had the chance to meet some truly amazing people thanks to the work we’re doing here at Music Connection Dayton, and there is one group in particular that I always enjoy having the chance to hang out with, The Mainline Funk!

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.

CORE_frontWith 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!

Blue Moon SoupToday’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)

Biography:

Blue Moon Soup, the acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio, entrances audiences with an eclectic mix of jam band staples, folk and bluegrass traditionals, and originals tunes that fuse folk and psychedelia to establish a unique identity in an increasingly homogenized musical landscape. As evidenced by the presence of a fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass, Blue Moon Soup’s bluegrass and celtic folk roots run deep. On stage, trailside or fireside, Blue Moon Soup’s music brings a sincerity and spirit to the stage that sweeps wallflowers onto the dance floor, and an enthusiasm that engages the audience into the wee hours. After a Blue Moon Soup show, we hope your feet are tired and your ears yearn for more.From dive bars to concert halls, Blue Moon Soup quickly attracted a fervent core group of fans throughout the broader Dayton area, and went on to augment its burgeoning following by appearing at a variety of regional musical festivals in Ohio and toured throughout the region, making inroads into Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.

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.

Description:

“The largest biological experiment man has ever entered into.”
Jerry Garcia

Band Interests:

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.”

Influences:
Jerry Garcia, David Grissman, Old and in the Way, Grateful Dead, Ortega Fuerte, Yonder Mountain String Band, Great Lake Swimmers, Fleet Foxes, Neil Young, Luke Campbell Brennan

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!
