Marcus Rezak is a classic rock n' roll cowboy. A man out on the plains, a gunslinger, well in this case, guitar slinger, with dreams, ambitions, and tons of talent. You know his name because of all the guest appearances he does on the Jam Band scene most notably with Umphrey's McGee. Aside from being an artist-at-large, Rezak also fronts Shred is Dead a Grateful Dead tribute band, and is a member of Digital Tape Machine and...

Magic Beans are a different kind of modern jam band. Aside from blending funk, soul and electronica, they even blend bluegrass into the mix. They recently released Slice of Life, a 14 track double record which gives a very clear audio indication of who this band is. The record was made over the pandemic during the slow down of touring. I sat down with guitarist Scott Hachey to discuss the new album and our conversation started when...

On the surface Russ Lawton and Ray Paczkowski are two great musicians who are known mostly as the drummer and keyboard players for the Trey Anastasio Band. And though that has been the case for the better part of the past two decades, these two have also been active in their own project Soule Monde. This funk jazz outfit have now released 4 albums. I caught up with the duo to talk about Soule Monde and we got into a whole bunch is ...

Dumpstaphunk have been honing their brand of New Orleans funk for the past 17 years. Of course it helps that Ivan and Ian Neville both have the sound in their bloodlines, but this entire outfit is more than just the sound of funk past, it's actually way bigger than those original roots. On their latest record Where Do We Go From Here, the band shows off its prowess in a pot pourri of genres and blend sounds for a fiery hot 4th ...

Garage a Trois, made its debut some 22 years ago with Mysteryfunk, to wide acclaim in 1999 and then evolved into several different configurations before a hiatus in 2015 after releasing " Always Be Happy, Stay Evil". GAT was always a side project for drummer Stanton Moore, Guitarist Charlie Hunter and saxophone player Skerik. But they back with a new album Calm Down Cologne and perhaps some touring down the road. I caught u...

For those who are unfamiliar, Leon III is primarily made up of Andy Stepanian and Mason Brent who were in Charlottesville based Wrinkle Neck Mules. I only bring up their former band as a point of reference for the kind of music they used to make, an Americana blend of honky tonk, alt.country and the like. This project though, is different with lusher sonic textures, and very exciting influences that blend for a very cool album expe...

For the unfamiliar, Marbin are a four piece jazz rock or more accurately jazz fusion outfit, featuring Dani Rabin on guitar and saxophonist Danny Markovitch the principles for whom the band is named. Their blend of harmonics, grooves, and stellar solos make this a band to check out! Since Marbin is as fresh to me, as it may be to you, and because I needed to know more about this awesome quarter, I got in touch with Dani Rabin to fi...
