    Ryan Miller of Guster

    Omagah! Guster with the Omaha Symphony Orchestra was released to fans via the band’s website and bandcamp page in early May. It features 11 songs spanning the bands almost 30 year career and includes a few tracks from their last album "Look Alive", released just last year. We’ve followed the career of Guster seemingly from day one, and have always been impressed with their music. They aren’t by the way a nostalgic act by any means. They’ve fairly consistently put out new music and are extremely active touring. We caught up with Ryan Miller to talk more generally about the band’s career to date and quite specifically about Omagah!

    Tom Hamilton of Ghost Light

    Tom Hamilton of Ghost Light

    In March of 2018 we got word that two stalwarts in the Jam Band world, Tom Hamilton and Holly Bowling were joining forces with a few other musicians to create something new called Ghost Light. Of course we got Tom and Holly on the phone and talked at great length about the project, and where things were heading. Just over two years later, after an album release, and several tours, they are releasing their first ever official live album taken from their performance March 30th, 2019 at the Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver Colorado. The album, like most Ghost Light shows is filled with original songs, covers, and exploratory jams that you just have to hear. Back when we chatted in March of 2018, Tom and Holly were both really excited about how the band came together in the process. Now some two years later, I wondered if that same excitement and cohesion still existed, and that's what I asked as I started my conversation with Tom Hamilton Jr.
