Cornmeal is so good, people don't even relize it! Their jamming dynamics are off the charts, mastering the ability to steer any song anywhere, like into funk, disco, trance, old timey, psycadelia. Sheep is unreal, 25 min on 10-31-08! Shady Grove is another monster cover clocking in at 20-30 min. 33 min. on 12-14-07! Going everywhere in between.
Kris Nowak's acoustic guitar sometimes sounds like Jerry in crazy space jams, and just downright relentless ripping. His brother JP locks up the drums with him like only blood can and brings such amazing momentum and grace that really separate Cornmeal from other bluegrass, jamgrass, and jam bands. Were talking dancing your ass off start to finish. And yeah, if you havent seen Allie Kral torch the place with her fiddle, whoa...
Most live recordings are aud and dont pull all the sound in, so this first live release should be a huge step up. Cant Wait!
