Spotlight Band: Buckeye Rooster

Buckeye Rooster was formed in the fall of 2011 and since that time has been putting their own modern twist on the bluegrass music world, with original compositions that have been opening the eyes and minds of audiences who had not, before, experienced the deep rich harmonies and acoustic instruments used on their iPods. The band members, inspired by a modern fusion ranging from Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, and even Hollywood Cowboy Gene Autry, have been attracting lots of notice while staying true to the bluegrass sound.

Hell’s Kitchen Country is all about savory three part bluegrass harmony. Comprised of three veterans of the NYC bluegrass and old time scene, Gene Yellin, guitar, Kalia Yeagle, fiddle, and Mark Farrell, mandolin, and joined by Ethan Kende on bass, and Terry McGill on banjo, the band draws its repertoire from the lesser known material of pioneers like the Sauceman Brothers, as well as classic country music.

Blue Plate Special and The Bluegrass Way

Last January, The New Jersey Home School Association Chorale, contacted the HVBA in search of a bluegrass band. This teen choir was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in the spring but needed some help with crafting the right sound for some American songs they were working on. They hoped to soak up the flavor of bluegrass harmonies to make their own vocal performance more authentic and less “classical."

February Showcase: Two Dollar Goat

One of the finest HVBA Member Bands is Two Dollar Goat. This month we will feature this band at our Showcase concert.

Back when Bill Monroe was deciding which instrument to learn, when recorded music was in its infancy and before musicians became embroiled in an ever escalating war of chops, folk music was presented in public in much the same way it was in private: simply, enthusiastically, with stories and jokes; as much for the entertainment of the musicians as it was for whomever happened to be close enough to hear.
