About the Bands:
North Mississippi Allstars
North Mississippi Allstars are back with PRAYER FOR PEACE and couldn’t we all use one of those right about now? Founded in 1996 by brothers Luther (guitar and vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, piano, synth bass, programming and vocals), the now venerable band are entering their third decade with perhaps the most vital album of their career. Recorded in studios across America during North Mississippi Allstars’ 2016 tour, PRAYER FOR PEACE sees the Dickinsons weaving their bred-to-the-bone musical sensibility with unstoppable energy, rhythmic reinvention, and a potent message of positivity, family, and hope. As ever, songs like R.L. Burnside’s “Long Haired Doney” and the impassioned title track pay homage to the country blues legacy while simultaneously pushing it into contemporary relevance with fatback funk, electronic innovation, slippery soul, and pure unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll. “This is a very exciting time for North Mississippi Allstars,” Cody says. “There’s been this explosion of creativity lately and it’s encouraging that for a band who has been around for twenty years now, our music is as vital and fresh as ever. It’s like the opposite of burnout – I can’t explain why but it feels totally brand new again.” “The blues is not children’s music,” Luther says. “We get better at it, the older we get. We’re so fortunate to be able to do it.” I think it’s our responsibility to the community that brought us up to protect the repertoire,” Luther says. “To keep the repertoire alive and vibrant. That’s what folk music is about. It’s an oral history of America. My dad and his friends, they learned from Furry Lewis and Gus Cannon and Will Shade and then taught those songs to us. It’s important for us to write songs and experiment and do other things, but playing our community’s music in a modern way is what Cody and I do best. I think it’s what we were meant to do.” True as always to the blues tradition, North Mississippi Allstars use the basic structures taught to them as the starting point for improvisation and contemporary interpretation, an approach that inextricably links them to a long line of American visionary artists like the Grateful Dead. www.nmallstars.com…
Elektric Voodoo is a nationally touring band based in San Diego, CA. The band blends classic afrobeat, Latin, rock & roll, psych, jazz, blues and many other influences into its own unique genre that tastefully straddles the line between modern and vintage.
Jordan Matthew Young
Jordan Matthew Young has shared the stage with the likes of ZZ Top, Shooter Jennings, Lukas Nelson, James Harman, Samantha Fish, Tinsley Ellis, John Németh, Indigenous, Kyle Gass Band, Shook Twins, Walter Parks, Eric McFadden, Jared James Nichols and is the proud winner of Album of the Year and Best Rock Band and was runner-up for Band of the Year and Best Blues Band in the 2016 Best of Utah Music Awards. Those looking to satisfy a vintage rock sweet tooth need look no further than power trio Candy's River House. This group leaves little to be desired at their all out, high energy live shows. Jordan Young at the helm with guitar/vox, Joey Davis on drums and Nathan Simpson on bass, the group has played everything from theaters to festivals to pool halls all over the country. The dusty throated Young peels through heavy layers of blazing guitar and a groovy, 4 on the floor rhythm section. Bluesy, soulful rock driven anthems and performances built for massive outdoor show or local night-club. -The Pulse
