Drew Emmitt Band
Drew Emmitt Band
Revered as one of the most energetic and innovative mandolin players on the jamband/newgrass scene today, Drew Emmitt’s “inestimable talents” (An Honest Tune) don’t end with just the instruments that can be picked. Holding the wheel steady on acoustic and electric slide mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar and mandola, Emmitt’s superlative storytelling and versatile vocal abilities are incomparable. Following a decade of success with Leftover Salmon, Emmitt released his first solo effort, Freedom Ride, drawing on the talent of peers John Cowan, Peter Rowan, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Vassar Clements, Stuart Duncan and Randy Scruggs. Critics and fans loved the collaboration and Emmitt relished the chance to record with some of the giants with whom he’d shared festival stages. “It's amazing,” he said, “it's like walking in a dream….Standing on stage next to Sam (Bush) is pretty indescribable.” After touring as the Emmitt-Nershi band with Billy Nershi of The String Cheese Incident for the past few years and making several reunion appearances with Leftover Salmon, Drew Emmitt's solo work is rejuvenated and once again taking the contemporary, live gig, fresh every-time approach to bluegrass music.

Following a decade of success with Leftover Salmon, Emmitt released his first solo effort, Freedom Ride, in 2002 drawing on the talent of peers John Cowan, Peter Rowan, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Vassar Clements, Stuart Duncan and Randy Scruggs. Critics and fans loved the collaboration and Emmitt relished the chance to record with some of the giants with whom he’d shared festival stages. “It's amazing,” he said, “it's like walking in a dream….Standing on stage next to Sam (Bush) is pretty indescribable.” In 2005 he followed up with Across The Bridge, an equally impressive effort showcasing Emmitt’s bluegrass chops and songwriting talents as a straight-ahead bluegrass man. After touring as the Emmitt-Nershi band with Billy Nershi of The String Cheese Incident for the past year and making several reunion appearances with Leftover Salmon, Long Road finds Emmitt rejuvenated and once again taking the contemporary, live gig, fresh every-time approach to bluegrass music.
Vince Herman
Vince Herman
Vince Herman is a guitarist and singer best known for being one of the founding members of Leftover Salmon. Leftover Salmon started in 1989 as somewhat of a melding of the Left Hand String Band and the Salmonheads, and became more and more popular over the sixteen years that followed. The band decided to go their separate ways in 2005, but still play together (billed as Leftover Salmon) on occasion. Since the hiatus, Herman formed a new band named Great American Taxi, who released their debut album in 2007.

Jack Cloonan Band
Jack Cloonan Band
Not many bluegrass pickers’ are bred in the south side of Chicago…but there is one. Jack Cloonan emerged from the Windy City fluent in guitar, mandolin, banjo….and any other instrument with strings that can make a crowd dance. There wasn’t much of a bluegrass scene in the depths of the south side so Jack packed up his 1977 "beater" Mustang that his dad gave him and headed west to Colorado. Along that journey, Cloonan took his midwest bluegrass influences and fused them with some up-beat and original, disco-esque jams. Jack Cloonan called his brain-child “Discograss” an up-beat, rock and disco infused style of bluegrass that he would later create a 4-piece band around. Cloonan made a name for himself along with his newly invented genre and was soon invited on stage by bluegrass legends such as Vince Herman, Andy Thorn, Adam Gruel, Marty Sammon and David Grisman to name a few. The Jack Cloonan Band packs a punch with guitar, banjo, mandolin, keyboard and drums. Between Cloonan’s humor, engagement with the crowd, epic attire and of course some badass pickin’ – audiences always leave laughing and with their live-music tanks full!

“A fusion of festival-heavy genres, it’s one part jam-band, one part acoustic funk, and all parts upbeat party.” (DGO Magazine)
