Greyspoke Jam Band Crazy

Greyspoke is a Jam Band from Burlington, Vermont who I first heard on the Heavy Syrup podcast. Listening to them makes me homesick and missing all that is good in Vermont bands. I know one thing-if I was in Vermont I would be attending one of their gigs.

Now I’m not saying they’re the next Phish – but you might want to keep that thought in the back of your mind if you’re considering going to one of their shows. Afterall, they are a jam band, they’re playing the same venues – like Nectar’s and even have included Phish’s bass player Mike Gordon as an influence on their Myspace page as well as Zappa who is also an influence of Phish. I can hear why they’ve listed the Grateful Dead, too.

The guitar and bass are incredible along with the drums keeping a wicked pace with all the jamming going on. If they’re this good through computer speakers, then I can almost guarantee that their live show is even better.

Check out Greyspoke’s music on Myspace right away if you are in need of some serious jamming:

They’ve noted on their website that they’ve played venues like: Riley Center for Perfoming Arts – Manchester, VT, Bennington College, SUNY Potsdam, University of Vermont (Cook Commons and Redstone), Nectar’s -Burlington, VT, Club Metronome – Burlington, VT, Dartmouth College, University of New Hampshire, and Higher Ground – Burlington, VT. Try to get to one of their shows if you see that they’re playing around these areas!

Heavy Syrup – Podcasting From Vermont

I just listened to a great podcast today called Heavy Syrup which podcasts from Vermont – my old stomping ground.

James Sharp is the podcaster and he’s located in Montpelier playing a variety of bands from Vermont as well as other locations, ranging from grass rootsy sounds to reggae, rock and more! Quite an eclectic mix, but just what I like to hear in a podcast.

The description on the Heavy Syrup (I just like saying those words for some reason) website is ‘podcasting Vermont music, politics and cuisine’ although I didn’t hear much talk about politics or cuisine on the particular podcast that I listened to which is fine with me. I was just looking forward to hearing what was going to be played next.

Definitely worth checking out:
