In Memory of Chris Porter: Andrea Juarez #1704


Andrea Juarez never planned to release an album, but it seemed like the best way to honor her fiance, Chris Porter, who passed away on tour October 2016, when their van was rear-ended on the interstate. Mitchell Vandenburg also was killed, and Adam Nurre miraculously survived the horrific wreck. Porter was mostly finished with tracking his album, Don’t Go Baby It’s Gonna Get Weird Without You, which he had recorded in marathon sessions with Will Johnson (Centro-Matic) producing, and Shonna Tucker (Pegi Young, Drive By Truckers) and John Calvin Abney (Solo, John Moreland) with whom he had toured. Bonnie Whitmore hosted a memorial concert to raise the rest of the funds to finish the record, which will be released on the anniversary.

Wannabe Doubles Down On Roots N Blues N BBQ 2017

Roots N Blues N BBQ has quickly become my favorite music fest. Held in Columbia, Missouri, it offers three days of outstanding live music, delicious local food vendors, affordably priced quality craft beer and some of the best musicians and fans one could ask for. Hosted at Stephens Lake Park, the fest consisted of two stages, 32 bands and more than plenty of space to spread out and relax in the perfect 70 degree weather.  I never thought my experience from last year would be topped, but in its 11th year, RNBNBBQ has proven they still have plenty of surprises up their sleeve. I just hope I’m invited to come back for thirds, as this hidden gem is the musical equivalent of the whole hog.

Sally Jaye #1703

Sally Jaye launched Cafe Rooster Records with a legendary guerrilla party at AmericanaFest 2016 in Nashville, TN. The cooperative record label began with friend and co-founder, Darrin Bradbury’s album, Elmwood Park, quickly adding a vinyl release of Jaye’s band, Ladies Gun Club, a vinyl re-issue of her solo album, Amarillo, and a digital release of fellow co-founder Brian Wright’s album, The Sneak Ups. Within the first year, Cafe Rooster also released their first two albums “outside” the family, Jon Latham’s acclaimed Lifers and a collaborative record, Strange Freedom: Songs of Love and Protest, to benefit Planned Parenthood. Keeping with the DIY ethos of the artists, the label promotes limited edition, hand-made art, rather than typical merch. With a revived touring schedule of her own (playing in Ojai, CA, and Los Angeles this week), Jaye may be the busiest record label executive in the business.
