Salivate: John D. Beck

We’ve taken the opportunity recently to catch up with some contributors to some of our Bruce Hornsby cover projects. First up is John D. Beck, who gave us “Talk of the Town” on Shadow Hands back in 2005, and then later the fantastic “See the Same Way” on Salivate. Both were really well received by the Bruuuce.com community, so we’re pleased to catch up with John here! (more…)

Popdose interview

Bruce recently chatted for an hour to our friends Matt Wardlaw and Jeff Giles on the aptly named Matt ‘N’ Jeff Radio Hour at Popdose.com. (more…)

2012 shows: third show for download

Date: June 23 2012

Venue: Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Telluride, CO

Here is your third of seven shows in seven days to download in 2013. I’ve been raving about Chris Thile and Punch Brothers to anyone who’ll listen for the past eighteen months, and he is all over this show. Throw in a couple other musical giants in Bela Fleck and Sam Bush, and this show is surely a highlight of 2012. (more…)

Date: April 20 2012

Venue: Wannee Music Festival, Live Oak, FL

Red Hook Summer

The self-produced soundtrack consists primarily of original instrumental solo piano compositions, with two vocal tracks also included. (more…)

Pay attention!

I was very happy to be a part of the Wolf Trap crowd that caught Punch Brothers last summer August. I wasn’t familiar with them, but had heard good words, especially of their front man Chris Thile. Sadly, a taping never emerged from that show, save for a few YouTube clips. There was a definite spike in emails to this site from those who witnessed Thile’s compelling and animated display that night, and so it was big news that Bruce and the Noisemakers and Punch Brothers were both to attend Telluride this year. Surely shenanigans and chicanery would ensue. (more…)

Live in ’95

This show from 1995 is one for the ages.

Recorded in New York on August 29 1995, just three weeks after Jerry Garcia’s passing, there’s an abundance of Dead songs throughout. (more…)

May 24 was one such day, and for an hour or so, a wide range of topics was covered. (more…)
