John Mayer Calls Dead & Company The Best Thing That’s Happened To His Career

first_imgWith their recent tour announcement, fans can rest assured that Dead & Company will be returning triumphantly in 2017. The vivacious ensemble sees Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart team with Oteil Burbridge, Jeff Chimenti, and most surprisingly, John Mayer.Now set to embark on their third major tour (fall 2015 and summer 2016 being the other two), Mayer has had some time to reflect on the impact those shows have had on his career. In a new interview with CBS New York’s Fresh 102.7, Mayer talks about the different experiences as a solo artist versus a member of a band, and how that has helped him personally grow as a musician and as a person.You can watch this new interview in the video player below.last_img

MonoNeon Drops Brand Psychedelic New Album, “A Place Called Fantasy” [Stream]

first_imgMonoNeon, the eccentric musician who held the honor of being the legendary Prince’s last bassist, has just release a brand-new eleven-track album titled A Place Called Fantasy today. Known for his synthesis of funk grooves with the psychedelic, MonoNeon, in recent months, has increasingly built a name for himself as a solo artist. The bassist has gained notoriety both within the jam scene and far beyond for his expert musicianship, as well as for his whimsical and hilarious cover videos, near-constant production of new music, and larger-than-life musical persona.Watch A Drummer And Bassist MonoNeon Cover A Charlie Rant From ‘It’s Always Sunny’A Place Called Fantasy is fearless in its direction. Moving between the bizarre, introspective, minimal, raunchy, and over-the-top with ease, A Place Called Fantasy falls in line with the rest of MonoNeon’s catalog, which is similarly boundless. Despite the avant-garde nature of the album, which can sometimes be a boon to studio efforts and inherently off-putting to some listeners, this latest work is held together by his innate talents with a guitar and bass and ability to imbue his fantastic and imaginative renderings with a cross-genre sonic appeal. You can listen to A Place Called Fantasy below, which also features AWFM (A Weirdo From Memphis), Taylor Morse, Nina Gnewd, Lance Lucas, and Anthony Knox.<a href=”http://dywanethomasjr.bandcamp.com/album/a-place-called-fantasy”>A Place Called Fantasy by MonoNeon</a>last_img read more

The Orange struggled with passing and possessing the ball, and the lone goal the Blue Devils scored turned out to be the winner.Here are the best shots from the game.
