Announcing the new Home Grown Music Network Member Bands for Fall 2008!

Charlie Wheeler Band - A combination of the hottest and most talented musicians between Jamestown, NY, Warren, PA and Ridgway, PA, CWB was created in 2007. Originally assembled as a studio band, they became energized during the recording of their debut CD and employed the doctrine used by the old masters of rock - high quality vocals, rippin' guitar leads and lyrics you can relate to. With the addition of Fuzzy Roselli on Rhythm Guitar, John Rutherford on the Bass and Mike Dreier, the pieces all fit together, and the smokin' live show is not to be missed. CWB plays a variety of styles on their debut CD, Highway Run, including straight ahead blues/riff based rock to rockabilly to some sweet monster power ballads. He leaves ample room in his arrangements for the other band members to express themselves instrumentally and is never shy about expansive improvisation.

Chef Dave - Fans of pure, expressive "Jam" music with a southern slant might find their new favorite band in Nashville's Chef Dave. The band's mostly instrumental sophomore album, No Strings Attached, harnesses the soul of the south, from Stax to the Allmans, with a trippy, mesmerizing groove and some spectacular musicianship. Seth Davis leads the band with his high-arcing, soul-tickling slide guitar work, where the Delta runs smack dab into the early PsychRock of the Dead and their torch-bearers. Davis has surrounded himself with magnanimous company, including organist extraordinaire Johnny Neel, who gives the songs thrilling trills and smoky atmospherics. The band's new album finds Chef Dave with a clear sense of purpose - to give fans of Southern Rock jams an equally virtuosic and progressive alternative to the genre's mostly still-active pioneers.

Deep Blue Sun - "One of the best CDs of 2008" - Hittin the Note Magazine. West coast psychedelia meets southern soul. Classic funk meets New Orleans boogie. Deep Blue Sun is a dynamic and original six-piece band playing funk, rock and southern fried soul. Their newest live CD captures the wide range of musical styles, featuring a powerful rhythm section, intricate harmonies, soaring guitar and driving keyboards. The music flows seamlessly between inspired improv and melodic, well crafted songs that reveal more with every listen. Discover the band Yonrico Scott (Derek Trucks Band) calls the "best kept secret in the jam band world."

Hot Day at the Zoo - Hot Day at the Zoo is a fiercely progressive "Newgrass" string band grown in Lowell, MA. Perhaps it's easier to coin a word to describe them than it is to pigeonhole their music. The foot-stomping, bass-thumping sounds of HDATZ are a far cry from that of your typical bluegrass band. HDATZ mixes their high-energy, gritty-urban-bluegrass with strong elements of folk, blues, ragtime and jazz. Fans describe the band's pioneering sound as "ZooGrass." Their tunes are layered with intricacies and depth reminiscent of Robert Hunter, the Grateful Dead, and Yonder Mountain String Band. Many great musicians spanning a broad spectrum inspired their grassy, jazzy, old-timey, Americana infused rock and roll. Tight musicianship, skillful songwriting and amazing personalities introduce us to places they have traveled, people they have loved, those they have lost, and those they surround themselves with.

Jango Monkey - With both musicianship and song craft that demand your attention, Jango Monkey uniquely blends indie rock, Americana and improvisation. Their first release, which ascended to #6 on the Jambands.com radio charts in May 2008, documents the depth of the band, moving from quirky indie pop gems to extended jams, while employing unique instrumentation to the effect of a rock orchestra. Hittin' the Note called the music "adept, distinct, well-structured, and at times feverish." Jango Monkey delivers a sonic journey through tight tongue-in-cheek sarcastic pop to huge guitar based jams that open up into vibrant exploratory spaces, further drawing the listener in.

Josh Phillips Folk Festival - Josh Phillips, singer and primary songwriter for the wildly popular southern funk act Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, is stepping out and stepping up! Phillips, who recently parted ways with the band, is quietly redefining his musical identity as one of the most soulful and thought provoking songwriters in the scene today. Josh Phillips Folk Festival have been gaining a veritable army of fans that range from the youngest listeners to seasoned traditional music fans. With the release of the first studio album, Wicker, Phillips has truly provided a strong testament to his ability to effortlessly capture generations worth of musical evolution, and traverse years of cultural dilution, bringing the listener back to the very source of roots, folk, soul, r & b, rock and reggae. The end result is a collection of memorable compositions that can literally transport the listener to another time and another place, rife with a romantic and endearing spiritualism long lost in today's over produced and manufactured music scene.

Quactus - Since forming in 2005, Quactus has quickly risen to the top of L.A.'s jam scene, developing a diverse style that blends various genres of music. Harmonious vocals set atop shifting textures and moods, mixed with subtle meter changes, intricate melodies, and a cohesive improvisational style backed by a solid rhythm section comprise the core of the Quactus sound. Yet, their jams may run the gamut from psychedelic to trance-like to ultra-funky or even heavy metal excess. In a live setting, the band never performs a show the same way twice, often including on-the-spot composition via hand signals between band members. The band is also known for throwing in a cover tune or song tease from time to time. As a result, Quactus is establishing itself as one of the most exciting new live acts in the Southern California scene.

Rainmaker - Rainmaker is a 4-piece band from the San Francisco Bay Area. They blend vintage and modern sounds and draw upon Roots Music, Indie Rock, Funk and Soul. Since forming in 2005, Rainmaker has logged hundreds of shows, spreading their infectious grooves, strong songwriting, and family-style harmonies throughout California and beyond. Their second album, Long Slow Fade, has garnered high praise from critics and fans. The album recently reached Number 2 on the jambands.com Radio Charts and features guest spots from the Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart and Garaj Mahal's Eric Levy.

Sol'Jibe - There's more to the Biggest Little City in the World than empty wallets and cheap hotel rooms - especially if you like your rock jams blended with roots music, electric violin, world rhythms, and picante Latin zest. Founded in Reno, Nevada, in 2002, Sol'Jibe's "world rock for the Gypsy soul" is attracting a growing legion of fans throughout the western U.S. and beyond. Perhaps best described as Dave Matthews meets the Afro-Cuban All Stars, Sol'Jibe was a huge hit at music festivals this summer, including High Sierra, Joshua Tree, Lightning In A Bottle, Shakori Hills, Seattle Hempfest, Cirquinox, and Earthdance.

Stanley Maxwell - Connecticut-based four-piece Stanley Maxwell's independently-produced debut album "Don't Wake The Baby!" blends (among many other influences) jazz, funk and rock with tight arrangements and intricate group improvisation. The disc includes "Mousetrap," an eleven-bar blues influenced by Thelonious Monk. The band's recording of the composition by pianist Evan Green has attracted international attention, including winning the Relix Magazine November 2007 "JamOff" contest, and winning "Best Jazz Song" in the 7th Annual Independent Music Awards. The album was recorded in Bristol, Connecticut by Dan Silvia of Hillgrove Recording, and mastered by Anthony Latt of the LattKave Recording Studio in Yonkers, New York.



New Additions:


Porter Batiste Stoltz with Page McConnell - MooDoo CD - Recorded live at Club Metronome in Burlington, VT, MooDoo features the sultry New Orleans funk sound of the tightest trio in that or any other city - George Porter Jr. (bass), Russell Batiste (drums), and Brian Stoltz (guitar) - PBS! Heavily informed by their stints in bands such as The Meters, Papa Grows Funk, and Vida Blue, and steered further by their own unique projects, PBS makes good and greasy funk just like you'd expect. For this special night, they were joined by keyboardist Page McConnell, who added his funkotronic keyboard stylings and powerful piano to 5 tracks. The songs on MooDoo, which include originals along with choice covers from the likes of Curtis Mayfield, Bob Dylan and, of course, The Meters, run long and strong over fields of jazz, rock, fusion and funk! $14.00


Greyboy - 15 Years of West Coast Cool CD or LP - This "best of" contains previously unreleased materials, hard to find mixes, and the tracks that made Greyboy famous as the originator of a new laid back, sunny, jazz and soul-inflicted West Coast sound. Includes appearances from Sharon Jones, Quantic, AG (Showbiz and AG), Bart Davenport (Honeycut), Shawn Lee, Nino Moschella, Jeremy Ellis, and others. RIYL: Greyboy All-Stars, Nightmares On Wax, Quantic, Mr. Scruff, Medeski, Martin & Wood. CD $16.99; LP $19.99





Adrian Hester - Further Out CD - Adrian Hester is a native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. He received his B.A. in Music Industry/Business with an emphasis on jazz bass from the University of Southern Mississippi, under the direction of John Palenski and Larry Panella. He furthered his studies after moving to Jackson with Dr. London Branch, who has performed with artists such as Kenny Burrell, Kidd and Cliff Jordan, and Eddie Harris. Adrian has been a regular performer in venues throughout Mississippi over the past eight years. Further Out is his first CD release. One can hear reflections of the artists who influenced him, such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Wayne Shorter, in the chord structures and harmonies throughout his work. At the same time, it is evident that Adrian has developed a style that is uniquely his own. $10.00

What makes this performance that much more special is the inspiring presence of founding member Michael Houser, who died of pancreatic cancer less than two years later. As much as anything, this is a celebration of Houser's life and the sheer joy he brought to a band that became one of the biggest draws on the international concert circuit and created a vibe that makes the Panic experience unique in the pop rock world.

Sol' Jibe

There's more to the Biggest Little City in the World than empty wallets and cheap hotel rooms — especially if you like your rock jams blended with roots music, electric violin, world rhythms, and picante Latin zest.

Founded in Reno, Nevada, in 2002, Sol'Jibe is independently gaining national exposure and winning over fans wherever they play their intoxicating, effervescent "world rock for the Gypsy soul." Fans young and old and everywhere in between from throughout the western U.S. have purchased upwards of 20,000 copies of Sol'Jibe's first two albums, "On Your Feet" and "Marinero," and sales of the band's most recent effort -- an EP titled "New Day" -- are quickly surpassing previous efforts. "New Day" is also getting played extensively on dozens of college and Internet radio stations like AccuRadio.com and Live365.com, as well as XM Satellite Radio. Voted Reno's best band from 2005-2008 by readers of the Reno Gazette-Journal and 2006-2008 by the Reno News & Review, Sol'Jibe won Harrah's "Search for the Stars" competition and is on regular rotation on its hometown Triple-A radio station 100.1 The X (KTHX-FM).

Sol'Jibe's sound -- which is often described as Dave Matthews meets the Afro-Cuban All Stars -- is driven by the expressive vocals and violin of Tim Snider. Tim, who began playing classical violin at the age of three, longed to immerse himself in the music of other cultures. After graduating from high school he trekked to southern Spain to study music with the Gypsies, honing his skills and enriching his style. He returned home and started a band in 2002 with a distinct sound that can only be described as Sol'Jibe. The group has toured relentlessly ever since, staging upwards of 200 concerts and clinics annually. However, Sol'Jibe's growing reputation for musical innovation also reflects the talents of a half-dozen other diverse, extraordinary musicians: bassist Fernando "El Nando" Flores, pianist Joel "J" Cowell, drummer Caleb "Escandalo" Dolister, multi-instrumentalist Justin "JK" Kruger, and saxophonists Jonathan Phillips and Jimmy Hoover.

Consistently performing to full houses, Sol'Jibe maintains a strong sense of purpose for themselves as musicians. Their goal is to explore different cultures and styles of music around the world and return to share their experiences with others through their art. In pursuit of this dream, the band has traveled extensively throughout Central America and the Caribbean, completing an intensive, three-week residency at the National School of Music in Havana, Cuba, in 2004. Since returning home, they have encouraged children and young adults to expand their cultural horizons via music by conducting concerts and clinics at more than 50 K-12 schools and over a dozen universities in Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana.

Sol'Jibe is sharing their vision with a growing legion of fans. The band made its major festival debut at the 2007 High Sierra Music Festival. The following summer saw them playing on the Grandstand Stage (main stage) at the High Sierra Music Festival, as well as performing at the Spring Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival in North Carolina, the Joshua Tree Music Festival in Southern California, Lightning In A Bottle in Santa Barbara, Seattle Hempfest, Earthdance in Northern California, and the Cirquinox Fall Equinox Music Festival in Oregon.  The band also performed at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, in 2005 and 2006, and headlined community concert series in California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. Sol'Jibe has opened for such national acts as Michael Franti and Spearhead, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Michael McDonald (at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado), New Monsoon, Steel Pulse, Grupo Fantasma, Eric McFadden, David Lindley, and Dave Koz.

Sol'Jibe's dream of fusing diverse world-music influences with their own blend of American rock is taking them to new heights, and it's only a matter of time before the masses take notice. Check out their upcoming tour dates here!
