Railroad Earth
New Jersey's Railroad Earth released their double live album Elko in early 2006 to rave reviews. The Philadelphia Inquirer called the band "...a delicious, elegant union" and Rolling Stone reviewed "...jump and sparkle are all over Elko."

Now, as the year reaches its end, Railroad Earth is planning their annual New Year's Celebration. For the second year in a row, the four night run will culminate in Philadelphia on New Year's Eve - this time at The Trocadero (last year the band sold out two nights at the TLA). But first, follow the band from DC, to Brooklyn, and then Stroudsburg (PA). Each night RRE will host some very special musical guests, to be announced soon. Tickets on sale now.

Using bluegrass tradition as a starting point, then exploring various musical idioms ranging from Celtic to rock and country to folk, all infused with enduring lyrical storytelling and innate pop sensibilities, Railroad Earth has unearthed and delivered a truly original Americana sound.

Right from their first shows in May 2001, word-of-mouth on Railroad Earth was instant and superlative, as evidenced by their rapidly growing and highly loyal fan base. Driven by the remarkable songs of front-man, Todd Sheaffer, and delivered with seamless arrangements and superb musicianship courtesy of all six band members, Railroad Earth's powerful live experience has finally been captured on their first ever live release, Elko (SCI Fidelity Records). Recorded during their 2005 spring tour, the double disc set captures all the timeless qualities without compromising the unpredictable nature that is at the core of a Railroad Earth concert.

I just saw them in Atlanta on Friday - awesome show! More jammed out and less folksy than the last time I saw them - I love those bluegrass jams - reminds me of Barefoot Manner. Fiddle player sounded awesome - he basically took over most of the jams.

I think its about time the Earth Boys come out to SF for NYE. Time to get adventurous....and the fan base is really solid out west, too. Regardless Im sure it will be a great night.

These guys are pretty much the only band that pulled me out of my Phil Lesh/Grateful Dead related music fixation..
They BRING it, with the talent of mando player extrordinaire John Skehan, frontman Todd Shaeffer, formerly of From Good Homes, Tim Carbone, fiddle wizard, Johnny Grubb, Standup Bass, Carey Harmon, drum freak, and musical genious playing Everything You Can Think Of, (banjo, guitar, flute, etc etc, Andy Goessling.

If you appreciate bluegrass with a fair shake of psychedelia, celtic roots, and soaring passion, check these guys out! :)

onthemoon- whats wrong w/ 930? I'm going there tonight for MMW and have seen Yonder, DTB, Black Crowes and a few others there and never had any complaints about the venue. Much better than Ram's Head or anywhere else (except 8x10) in the metro area
