  • Chuck Mead and His Grassy Knoll Boys

    Chuck Mead and His Grassy Knoll Boys

    After leading several popular ‘80s cult bands in and around his hometown of Lawrence, Kansas, Chuck Mead landed on Nashville’s Lower Broadway where he co­founded the famed ‘90s Alternative Country quintet BR549. The band’s seven albums, three Grammy nominations and the Country Music Association Award for Best Overseas Touring Act would build an indelible bridge between authentic American Roots music and millions of fans worldwide. With BR on hiatus, Chuck formed The Hillbilly All­Stars featuring members of The Mavericks, co­produced popular tribute albums to Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, guest­lectured at Vanderbilt University, and became a staff writer at one of Nashville’s top song publishers. In 2009, he released his acclaimed solo debut album, Journeyman’s Wager, and toured clubs, concert halls and international Rock, Country and Rockabilly festivals with his band The Grassy Knoll Boys.

    As Music Director for the Broadway smash Million Dollar Quartet, Chuck began crafting the music arrangements during the show’s original Daytona and Seattle workshop productions, supervised the musical performances for its 2008 Chicago opening, created new music material for the show’s Tony Award­winning Broadway run, produced the original cast album, and oversaw the music for its smash 2011 premiere at London’s Noe?l Coward Theatre. In 2013, MDQ broke the Chicago record for longest running musical.

    Chuck’s acclaimed 2012 release, Back At The Quonset Hut, was recorded at Nashville’s legendary Quonset Hut Studio where Patsy Cline, George Jones, Merle Haggard Roger Miller, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash and more cut some of country’s greatest tracks. Produced by original BR549 producer Mike Janas and with the participation of students from Belmont University’s College of Entertainment and Music Business, the album of classic covers features surviving members of Music Row’s original ‘A Team’ studio musicians as well as guest appearances by Old Crow Medicine Show, Elizabeth Cook, Jamie Johnson and Bobby Bare.

    2014 ushers in Free State Serenade, the new Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll Boys release on Nashville­based Plowboy Records. Produced by long­time ally and friend Joe Pisapia (kd Lang, Ben Folds Five) and featuring BR549’s Don Herron, Old Crow Medicine Show’s Critter Fuqua, Alan Murphy, Will Rambeaux, and Mark Andrew Miller, Free State Serenade is Chuck Mead’s strongest effort yet.

  • Poor Mister Rich

    Poor Mister Rich

    Poor Mister Rich  When Jesse Daniel Edwards and the Smart Brothers burst onto the scene 7 years ago in Los Angeles, it was a breath of fresh air sweeping through a city that gets its fair share of high quality atmosphere.  Now, LA is poised to get a piney whiff as JDE brings his most recent endeavor to local fav The Mint:
     
    "I love The Mint, it’s the only place I played in LA that I thought, wow I’m in back in Nashville.  It’s a great local institution and an oasis out here in the west.  I have been busy working with some guys I have known for years after always wanting to put our heads together and kind of wondering what the result would be.  We’ve all done our time in different bands and projects, and we are quite proud of what we’ve come up with now.  It feels as if we’ve made the ideal band each of us has always wanted to be part of.” 
     
    JDE had this to say in reference to getting back to music after 3 years hiatus.
     
    “I was working at a summer camp, I was living out of my car rock climbing and surfing, and then I was traveling.  I didn’t think about music much during this time, my life was full in other ways and I was honestly tired of having music be a job.  I just focused on living life, having as much fun as possible at all times.  I guess the songs emerged when I started to reflect on all the ups and downs of the past few years.  The tanks got refilled.”
     
    Joined by LBC hard hitters, Chris Crumb, Mark Torromeo, and Sean Rainey- all multi instrumentalists like JDE, the band sounds somewhere between Wilco or Dawes, and maybe the Gin Blossoms.  Definitely check out single tracks “Older Now”, Heartbeats in the Dark”, and “Philadelphia”- available to stream on Spotify or download on iTunes (under Jesse Daniel Edwards).  Definitely for fans of deeper lyrics, and modern folk rock or California rock.
     
    Catch the band at the Mint March 6, show starts at 9pm.
