The Big Poppies in the studio, recorded Nov 2nd, 2018

This was EPIC.  The Big Poppies are one of northern California's favorite bands and were in the studio with us. (In the studio 2/3rd of the Big Poppies, Chris Preston and Max Van Dyke). Their music is contagious with a heavy influence of blues, rock and throw in a bit of funk. Their stage presence is electrifying. If that is not enough, all of the band members are spot on talented musicians. Influences include the likes of Vance Joy, Alabama Shakes, Gary Clark Jr., The Black Keys, Daft Punk, just to name a few. On this show we will focus in on their new CD release

Yo! and the Electric, recorded Oct 19th, 2018

Skyler and Julia of the Yo! and the Electric joined us this week.   Yo! And The Electric formed in 2017. This psychedelic group gets its inspiration from such artists as Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa, and The Beach Boys. Based in Sacramento, Yo! And The Electric self-released "Spartacus," an EP of original psychedelic jams, in August, and is known for blending '60s pop sensibilities with cool undertones of jazz. The band offers a full rich sound that has a wonderful depth.

Band members are: Skyler Leftridge, Julia Stimson, Ryan Coughran, Dane Skinner, and Patrick Lema.

Boot Juice leaves the studio floor sticky, recorded Oct 5th, 2018

Boot Juice, The band has been kickin' since 2012, indiscriminately leaving dance floors sticky in California and Idaho. We are a 5-piece band consisting of electric and acoustic guitars, three vocalists, bass and drums. The music we play has evolved over 10 years, starting when our lead guitarist, Evan Daly, would play his beat-up acoustic seagull guitar and sing his heart out to an apartment full of lost kids until the strings broke. One of those kids was me, Connor Herdt. Since then, I have been writing and playing music, and eventually founded BootJuice. We have had an evolving line-up over the years that has finally solidified with David Provost on Drum kit, Brett Worley on  Bass, Evan Daly on lead guitar and vocals, Jessica Stoll on vocals, and myself, playing acoustic and singing. It has been a long road, and it just keeps getting better. Our music will attempt to bring you to the street corner, the river side, or the dance floor. I've always wanted the music to hold on to the raw inspiration I felt sitting in that apartment as a 17 year old, searching for meaning in life. I carry it with me everyday, growing and improving in my minds ear.  I hope to pass on that joy and the power of music to every audience gracious enough to listen. Showcasing up-beat, rocking, acoustic music, this isn't folk night at the coffee shop. Boot Juice will get your heart beating and your feet stomping.

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.

 

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
