1/22 Daily Update: Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Greensky Bluegrass, Cornmeal and more

Jun 28, 2010 by

Do you remember the song mistadobolina? Well, the guy that sang that song, Del, is back and is hot right now… sharing his time between Gorrilaz and his own band. To check out Del tha Funkee Homosapien, go to Agave tonight and see why he transcends rap and includes jazz and funk into one of the best live shows around.

Side note trivia: Del is the cousin of Ice Cube

At Three20South, Todd Sheaffer shares the bill with Cornmeal. Todd is no stranger to the road. Initially known for his acclaimed “front man” work as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter with the popular quintet From Good Homes, and now his current role as lead singer/songwriter of new-grass sensation Railroad Earth, Sheaffer has been bringing his music to thousands nationwide for over a decade now.

Cornmeal continues to forge a path all their own, pushing the boundaries of bluegrass, Americana and folk for a whole new generation of music lovers. Steeped in the tradition of musical acts such as Old and in the Way, John Hartford, and New Grass Revival, Cornmeal has proven to be an influential presence in the world of roots music.

For those of you around Vail, if you’ve recovered from the Tim Reynolds show at Sandbar, you should make it back there for tonight’s Split Lip Rayfield show. Split Lip Rayfield continues their tour of Colorado and if you’ve ever longed to see a talented band with a bassist that plays homemade one-string bass built from the gastank of a 1978 Mercury Grand Marquis and a piece of hickory and strung with one piece of Weedwhacker line, this is the band for you!

Another great concert tonight happens at Steamboat’s Ghost Ranch Saloon where The Sounds of Seattle Tour stops by with tribute bands to Pearl Jam, Nirvana and a few other of your favorite Seattle bands.

Lastly, Winterfest on the Mountain starts tonight. The schedule for the evening is:

Tony Trischka 6:00 – 7:00
Adam Aijala and Ben Kaufmann 7:30 – 8:30
Greensky Bluegrass (2 sets) 9:00 – 11:45
