Trout Steak Revival
Trout Steak Revival
Trout Steak Revival has earned a place in the mountain states bluegrass scene, performing to sold-out audiences, winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, placing in the 2012 Rockygrass Band Competition, and even winning an Emmy Award for a soundtrack with Rocky Mountain PBS. From beginnings as an informal jamming unit during treks through the peaks of the Front Range, Trout Steak Revival has evolved into one of Colorado's most tightly knit, hard-driving bluegrass bands. Their brand of heartfelt songwriting blends dynamic musicianship with intricately woven harmonies, all tied together with the unmistakable sound of their years of friendship. From sweat-soaked clubs to mountain festivals, the five-piece has shown a tenacity for quick-picking and all the right polish without sacrificing the raw feeling of well-executed bluegrass. Keeping an eye on traditions of the past but boldly forging into new territory, Trout Steak takes us back to memories of whiskey, laughter, and the misty high country where the band was born.
Cedar County Cobras
Cedar County Cobras
Just as a cobra snake is rare to impossible to be found in the farm fields of rural Iowa….the eclectic sound of the string band Cedar County Cobras is a sight to be seen. The music has been described as contagious, acoustic rockabilly, dancing bluegrass, or brand new old-time country with the gritty sound of soulful blues. It is almost impossible to box the sound of The Cobras into one musical genre. Just know that you should be prepared to bring your dancing shoes and party with this musical troupe made up by the three blind brothers from the electric rock band Porch Builder and a woman mandolin player rooted in bluegrass and rock n’ roll. This project features original music written by lead vocalist Tom Spielbauer (fiddle player and multi-instrumentalist), George Spielbauer is behind the driving rhythm of the Cobra sound on the jumbo guitar, brother Mike Spielbauer brings in the thump of the upright bass, and vocalist April Dirks tears it up on the mandolin and plays the parlor guitar. These folks come together from two musical families blending the sound of gravel road rock n’ roll with a mandolin and fiddle to bring you Iowa’s newest acoustic string band.
