Cornmeal...

Postby weirimpressed » Sat Sep 06, 2008 10:04 am

Hey All

Went to a pretty cool show (Perpetual Groove) last night, and they had a bluegrass band called Cornmeal open for them. I guess they are from the Chicago area, but they tore it UP to say the least. Any of yall ever heard of them? If you havent, look for some of their music, definitely worth a listen.

Take it easy yall :D

It's funny to see this thread.. your note is the same tone from when i first saw em and posted a note.. i dug their sound and energy.. and how they arranged things like marley or dylan songs..
they are just plain great as i am sure more that a few folks on this site will agree

I caught their set at Grateful Fest last weekend. I agree they are pretty good. A nice mixture of bluegrass and jam, with a little Grateful Dead thrown in. And I see they are here in Atlanta tonight. But alas, this being Sunday and family night and all, I can't go. But if I could, I would! Hopefully, they'll come through here again.

the core of them have played together for years. but cornmeal i believe has been together about 2 years, maybe a little more or less.

Cornmeal is sick! I saw them at the moe.down and they were totally unbelievable. Great band-and the threw it down extra hard when they sat in with moe. as well.
Would you please remove your rubber duckie from my guacamole...Thanks!

No, i said " i believe" they had been together for about 2 years. and i obviously was wrong. i didn't really check them out until a few years ago, but did catch the terrapin flyer and missing man formation things they were doing more. JP came out to one of our shows earlier this year the day before he left on tour and we got him on drums for a few dead tunes. the guy's in my band went to H.S with the Nowak brothers. 2 cool dudes and a privilage to have J.P sit in for a couple tunes. anyway, if you haven't check them out. DO IT!!!

peace,
waldo

I've known Dave B. for about 12 years, and I've been aware of CM being around since at least 1999.
