This band is fucking awesome! I remember Cornmeal being featured on as the new groove of the month in 06 or something, but I never gave them a listen... until I saw them this year at Moe.Down and again with Grace Potter... THIS BAND RIPS... they have become one of my favorites... and they make you boogie the entire show... I give them the highest vote of confidence... Does anyone know where I can find the entire show online? The dude who put it up on archive only put up their set of originals rather than whole set.

LOVE Cornmeal. Not sure how this works, but they have a seperate halloween set up on the archive that's a SBD/Matrix. Sounds great. Check it:

This definitely did not happen ON Halloween, although it was promoted as being a Halloween bash. Cornmeal actually played on 10/31 at Canopy Club. They did not cover The Doors however. This looked great. Too bad I didn't make it out to this one.

ALOHA to CORNMEAL from Kauai,Hawaii!

Cornmeal is the best!

This show blew my mind. Unbelievable! Cornmeal is my favorite but I never imagined them tearing through well worn Doors songs with such smooth rock-the-hell-out power and exciting poetic grace. Comboed with their jamming creativeness, this show vaulted these pickers into jamband musical history. They definitely prepared hard for this nailing all the beats and licks and feelings that hide in these classic songs. The energy that Cornmeal shares is pure and powerful. The world is opening wide for these youthful jammers and I cant wait to see what happens next. Maybe they'll come out to Hawaii. Please.Please. Check These Guys Out!

ps. The Haunted House was wild late nite! and I loved the "2 smashes on an old car with a sledgehemmer for a buck" ride.

I don't know if I missed it or not, but this says nothing about the Creek Road Ramblers covering The Beatle's Sgt. Pepper album. I heard it was an awesome show. Quite a few of my buddies went and a couple did security. I guess Waterstreet's singer did a good job covering Plant.

SOAM, you sound very arrogent.

I have more vids from that night if you guys want to check 'em out:

I managed to record pretty much the entire set except the last 3 songs.

Oh and SOAM, why would you even waste your time making those kinds of comments? So you can waste ours when we read the garbage you write? Get a life you snide assfuck, do us a favor and keep your bullshit remarks to yourself.

i made sure to be front and center for this one! shit was awesome, just goes to show they can really do anything. they've come a long way, i remember them playing the shakedown every year at summer camp. this show was actually on the grounds of the summer camp festival in chillicothe,il. the whole night was kick ass, waterstreet really rocked a solid ass zeppelin set too. i gotta say though, the halloween costumes featured in the contest were lame shit. always keep some cornmeal in the kitchen....

you're lame, which is why neither Cornmeal or any of us care if you think they're lame.
