Evolutions

Checking out the Funk Trek CD release party at The Waiting Room Friday, Dec. 10, yielded two great sets. Opening the show was Weir, Fairchild & Miller, or the Kris Lager Band without Kris Lager. Jeremiah Weir, John Fairchild and Brandon Miller rocked through some R&B inflected tunes that were musical shout-outs to The Meters and Professor Longhair. Their set showcased all three members but really...

Omahype Returns

Sometime in March 2009, a quiet sadness swept over the Internet when Andrew Bowen and Ian Atwood grasped firmly and pulled the plug on one of Omaha's more original websites -- omahype.com.

String Theory

For eight years Hot Buttered Rum String Band (HBRSB) has refined its Newgrass sound to incorporate an amalgamation of styles and genres. Based around the traditional acoustic string set-up (and with the somewhat recent addition of a drummer), HBRSB paints on a bluegrass canvas with a folk, rock, reggae and jazz palette.
