Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is an eight-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it’s clear they’re focused on delivering the band’s infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band’s live show is explosive. They debuted new material as official performers of this year’s SXSW and were well received. Mountain Jam attendees were BLOWN away too Their blend of seductive soul and dirty blues-rock will remind audiences that great live music still exists.

Show Review – The Monkees, 6/6/14, PNC Pavilion, Cincinnati, OH

Written by Bill Whiting

The Monkees’ return to Cincinnati, Ohio’s PNC Pavilion on June 6 was a breezy, summer walk back into the 1960′s with the chart topping ensemble, and it’s innovative use of film and television. Starting with the filmed intro to it’s groundbreaking television show, the three remaining members (Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith) took the stage to launch into “Last Train to Clarksville” and “Papa Gene’s Blues.” Tork engaged the energized PNC Pavilion crowd with a wild run through the boisterous stomp of “Your Auntie Grizelda.” Dolenz danced effortlessly, and sang the radio friendly numbers, “She” and “(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone.” Nesmith added vocal strength, and an anchoring instrumental presence on the popular tunes, “Sweet Young Thing” and “What Am I Doing Hangin’ Round?” as Monkee mania swept through the concert facility.

311 just released new album STEREOLITHIC, their 9th consecutive album to debut in the top 10 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Album Chart. The album also entered No. 1 on both the Rock and Indie Charts.

STEREOLITHIC was released via the band’s own 311 Records and distributed by INgrooves, making it 311’s first truly independent release since their early days as an unsigned band in Omaha, Nebraska.
The band celebrated the release with “311 Day,” a 5-hour, 66-song set at the New Orleans Arena. As pointed out by Consequence of Sound, “there’s something about a band playing 60+ songs over five hours that’s worthy of our attention. Aside from Springsteen or Pearl Jam, there aren’t many acts who can claim such a feat.” Read more
