Tracorum
Tracorum
Tracorum’s contagious musical journeying is a blend of southern swamp pop, soul, honky tonk, roots rock americana with a rhythmic diversity that adds elements of funk, latin-caribbean and gospel stomp to their unique sound. Great songwriting steeped in rich vocal harmonies and urban storytelling are the vehicle on which this powerful quartet had made their national ascent.
“At the end of the day we are a Rock n Roll band in the truest sense” says piano/vocalist Fletcher Nielsen “We thrive on a diversity of sound because it’s an honest representation of where we collectively come from as people.
“In one show we might musically visit New Orleans, the Appalachian mountains, Delta blues, church, psychedelic 60’s, England’s Rock heroes, say hello to Dylan and Willie Nelson drop Parliament/Funkadelic a bone and end up in Jamaica with a final stop in Memphis via southern Georgia.”
“It works because every song or style we play is unified by the true heart of rock and roll that is put into every performance. Tracorum has developed a unique sound which makes every original song or choice cover we play come across as if it was our own. People say eclectic is a marketing death wish but the spirit of resistance and potential that threads through our shows connects us with the audience in an symbiotic convergence that leaves both the band and the crowd energized night after night, for us that is Rock and Roll.”
The Allmond Brothers Clan
The Allmond Brothers Clan
The Allmond Brothers Clan is a collective of top shelf Bay Area musicians led by Jimmy Leslie (Guitar Player Magazine, Honey Island Swamp Band). As “Trickey Frets,” Leslie directs the Allmonds through the chestnuts of the Allman’s classic catalogue. The ABC was born when Leslie produced a Guitar Player Presents tribute to Duane Allman in San Francisco at the Boom Boom Room. 15 musicians—including Luther Dickinson (Black Crowes, North Mississippi Allstars) played their hearts out to an overjoyed audience that went absolutely nuts. There was too much for love for it not to live on as—The Allmond Brothers Clan!

From Jambase.com about ABC at High Sierra 2010

"A tribute band is a tricky thing. Genuflect too much and you're a boring recreation, stray too far off the blueprint and folks won't recognize the source material, which is a central aspect to a tribute's pleasure. This Allman Brothers homage led by Guitar Player Magazine's Jimmy Leslie (who plays the Dickey role) gets the balance just right. Unlike the Grateful Dead, Beatles or Stones, few bands cover the Allmans because it is a separate language that swirls gutbucket blues with jazz sophistication. Just as most of us don't speak Esperanto, Allman-ese isn't common and it was exciting to see this large band teach themselves how to talk eloquently. Unlike today's ABB, the Allmond Clan uses the At The Fillmore East era as their Rosetta Stone, and one suspects their grasping at these numbers mirrors the Allmans' own during that time period. Simon "Eli Jebidah" Kurth was a fire hose of great guitar riffing as Duane "Sky Frog" Allmond, and stellar guest turns from Sean Leahy, Josh Clark, Greg Loiacono and Lebo added further air guitar heft to the session. PMW's Josh Brough was also murderously good as Gregg “Allmond Boy” Allmond, attacking the organ and vocals with the gusto of a young Gregg. Most of us weren't able to see ABB when Duane was alive but the hunger for that music remains. The Allmond Bros Clan fulfills that appetite in a way that honors Duane's memory by really wrestling with this music in a quite alive way. Festival bookers take note: Don't let the other guys get to this project before you." -- Dennis Cook
