Only The Grascals could make me watch Leno   Leave a comment


Received in the Fervor Coulee inbox today:

“Nashville, TN — Bluegrass power-pickers, The Grascals are headed to NBC’s Burbank Studios for their Tonight Show debut on Friday, January 25th. The band will perform “Mystery Train” from their Grammy-nominated album Life Finds a Way.

It’s a coast-to-coast week for The Grascals who performed in Washington D.C. on Monday as part of the Inaugural events. The band played at the Native Nations Inaugural Ball at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian. Founding member, Jamie Johnson, is a member of the Chippewa tribe.

Join host Jay Leno with The Grascals as musical guest this Friday, 1/25/13.  The Tonight Show airs on NBC at 11:35 p.m. Eastern / 10:35 p.m. Central.”

I remember the thrill of hearing The Grascals for the first time. “Me and John and Paul;” what a song! I am so jaded now, it is hard to remember that I was gobsmacked the first time I heard them live. While I haven’t always agreed with their choice of material, I’ve continued to enjoy the band’s recordings. I might set the PVR to catch this one.
