TROUT STEAK REVIVAL ALBUM RELEASE
It’s been two and half years since Denver-based Trout Steak Revival released a new studio album, and the band couldn’t be more excited about sharing it with their hometown fans with a return to Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom. As a follow-up to the band’s 2015 release, “Brighter Every Day,” Trout Steak Revival again brought on Chris Pandolfi, banjo player of the Infamous Stringdusters, to produce the new album. Recorded at Notably Fine Audio in Denver, Colorado, the album delivers original tunes written and sang by each of the band’s five members.
Tickets to the Cervantes' show on November 18th may be purchased as part of a 2-Show package which includes the band’s performance at the High Fives Foundation Benefit Show at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox on November 10th.
Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots evoking its own style of Americana. With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival delivers memorable tunes to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band.
Trout Steak Revival has shared the stage with The Wood Brothers, Yonder Mountain String Band, Steep Canyon Rangers, Infamous Stringdusters, Nicki Bluhm, Sara Watkins, Leftover Salmon, and many more...

In the summer of 2006, Alex Thoele and Jon Pickett met while playing guitars around a campfire, high on a mountaintop in Estes Park, CO. The two have been entertaining and writing music since. In 2010, they were joined by mandolin player and fellow midwesterner, Jarett Mason, and shortly after by James Weatherly, the band’s only Colorado native, on banjo.
Chain Station is a 4-piece, high-energy, get ‘em out on the dance floor string band from Denver, Colorado. Their music is well-steeped in Americana roots, with vocal harmonies that are high, lonesome, and tight. Their picking ranges from lightning-fast to mountain mellow. They are a bluegrass band that would satisfy a picky old-timer and delight fans of newgrass, a delicate balance indeed.
They've become known for winning over crowds with creative, fun original songs that flow from the mountains, through them and right back to you. Pure Mountain Music! It's obvious these guys love what they do, engaging their growing fan base with energy and stage antics that guarantee one hell of a night out.
The band’s newest album is “Where I want To Be” October, 2016. In 2015 a live album “Chain Up Volume 1” was released and the debut studio album “Dancin’ With the Law” hit the scene in 2013. Chain Station has directly supported bands such as The Devil Makes Three, The Travelin' McCourys, Sierra Hull, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Todd Snider, Trout Steak Revival, The Railsplitters, Fruition, Hot Buttered Rum, Deadphish Orchestra and many more.
This band has been living life through music and adventures together for more than six years. Relentless gigging in their home state of Colorado, the mountain west and the midwest has made this band of brothers one of the tightest and most professional little ragtag pack of muppets on the scene today.
The songwriting and warm, honest, straight-to-the heart voice of lead singer of Ross Newell draws listeners into the group’s signature sound, where the harmonies of Greg DeLuca, Ben Leininger and Melody Duncan make the songs soar or haunt from the shadows. De Luca plays drums and Leininger is on the suitcase bass -- which Newell made out of two suitcases, a smoke alarm and his grandmother’s walking stick. Fiddler Melody Duncan recently joined the band, bringing a female voice and perspective.
The group’s new single, “Divine Design,” is about being taken advantage of by the person you love. “The offender doesn’t see it as hurting someone else, but as helping himself or herself,” says Newell. “It is a terrible feeling and I want the song to create an awareness of what it is like to be treated that way, whether it is intentional or not. I want the listener to think if this is a song about them or the people around them. If this is divine design, then divine design is behind the times.”
I feel like a suit of second-hand armor. It can protect you but may never wear a shine. Every time you see me you know I’ll be there when you need me, never thinking of the dead man left inside. Pay no mind to the dead man left inside. - “Divine Design”
“Writing songs is one of my favorite things, but I take a while to write a song,” says Newell. “If a line seems forced or anything but honest, then I have to scrap it. I have to live through something or feel strongly about it to add authentic details. I have to sing these songs hundreds of times a year and it is important to me to identify with that song every time. Fortunately the songs take on a life of their own and people are willing to listen and read more into the lyrics that what was said.”
“We have to make music that stays true to ourselves.”
The Mulligan Brothers have released two albums, The Mulligan Brothers and Via Portland (recorded in Portland with Grammy-winning producer Steve Berlin) and will soon begin working on their next album.
