J. Roddy Walston & The Business - “Take It As It Comes.”
“If you’re at all familiar with the musical styling of J. Roddy Walston & The Business, the mere mention of the name probably brings to mind the visual of a mass of wavy hair crashing again and again over the black and whites of a Yamaha.”

PHOX was bred in Baraboo, Wisconsin, a place where the Ringling Brothers lived and wintered their circus, their clowns, their elephants, tigers and the entire menagerie during the off-season months. The high-wire performers rehearsed their new acts, in this place dubbed Circus City. The band is filled with and demonstrates the same kind of wonderment that one could imagine only coming out of people raised in such a magical place, somehow stationed in the middle of the Midwest. Let your own wonderment sweep you away this summer, and don’t miss Phox at the Fort.

“Sitting on the shores Lake Superior, Duluth, Minnesota would likely be far from the first place that comes to mind to look for a hard-picking bluegrass band. Yet that’s where Trampled By Turtles call home.”

6. With it’s barely-touched architecture and stunning harbor, Newport is the quintessential New England town. Come for the pristine colonial homes and Gilded-Age mansions, stay for one of the many anticipated events, like July’s Newport Folk Festival.
We approve of this message.
“It’s only been a few days since I last saw Band of Horses. And with a career that requires me to listen to new tunes non-stop, I’m still having a difficult time shaking the sounds that graced my ears last Sunday.”
