Many moons ago I had the pleasure of seeing David Bromberg at a small venue at the Morris
Stage in Jersey. He put on a hell of a show, had a great band with him and played for nearly
3 hrs. Great songs,great storyteller,great picker but then all of a sudden he kind of disappeared
He used to play with Jorma and Hot Tuna and Jerry Garcia. Does anyone know if he still tours?

I saw David Bromberg several times in the 80's. He always has a great band and he touches so much different music. He could play some mean blues then turn around and play a great bluegrass tune.....A truely gifted musician

He's on tour right now. He's mainly up and down the east coast, but he'll eventually head out west for a few dates (I think California and Oregon, mostly).

Never got the chance to see him -- he came here last year, but I was out of town. He's an excellent songwriter. "Sharon" is my favorite (which Widespread Panic does a sick cover of), "Main Street Moan," "Mr. Bojangles." He's definitely got some good stuff.

Anybody ever check out any Vic Chesnutt?

Bromberg still plays and has done a few more shows in the past 2 years or so, than he had for a while. He builds violins also and owns a shop in Wilmington DE. It's a treat to still hear his big band. Caught them mant times back in the mid-late '70's. He played the theaters I worked out back in those days, some really great shows.

I saw him at the old Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ opening for Dickey Betts and Great Southern circa 74/75. Brommberg blew the house roof off to the tune of about 3-4 encores.

Dickey came out played a number or two walked off stage and we all went home happy.
I think he had some sort of equipment problem.

I saw Mr. Bromberg 2 winters ago, I believe, in Chicago. Sam Bush opened. Bromberg has MASSIVE talent and put on an incredible show...very diverse. He's a great guitarist w/many styles, great fiddle player and sings like a mofo. The 2nd to last song of the night was a slow, haunting, solo acoustic 'Statesboro Blues' that flat blew my mind. Go see him - you won't be disappointed!

Check out The Fur Peace Ranch owned by Jorma. It is the last date on David's tour. It's in the boonies!! They have jams all summer, and anyone can jam.

Saw Bromberg quite a few times during the seventies/early eighties. Always a good show. Glad to hear he's still doing it.

Another blast from the past, I saw Bromberg in the 70's in NYC at the Bottom Line. Billy Joel, Linda Ronstat, Loudon Weinwright, Phoebe Snow, it was like their hang out back then. I baby sat for Phoebe's daughter back then, so my perks were going to shows.

Sharon has got to be one of my all time fav's, I had the vinyl albums back then and Sharon is my "My Space" tune, my video though is of course Lowell doin Cold, Cold, Cold.


Let me go get that Sharon tune over here......................she crawls on her belly like a reptile, look what you do to those men................

Don't forget that Bromberg was the producer of that excellent and very influential album by John Hartford called "Steam Powered Aereo Plane" from 1971, a project that featured his Dobrolic Plectoral Society band that included Vassar Clements, Norman Blake, and Tut Taylor.

Bromberg did a crack up move at Merlefest a couple of years ago. Next to the main stage at Merlefest- the huge outdoor Watson Stage, there is the Cabin Stage, which is reconstructed 1750 log cabin with a front porch on it where various bands play a 20 minute show while they set up the next headlining act on the adjacent Watson Stage. Bromberg performs with his wife's singing trio- Angel Band. So, he and his band were on the main Watson Stage late at night, with the spotlights going and the big screen up and to the left of the stage showing what Bromberg and his band were doing. He goes into a song where you hear the beautiful voices of the Angel Band singers, yet they are nowhere to be found, they are not onstage with Bromberg and his band. Folks in the crowd start to wonder if he has put the vocals on tape, because there is nothing but the guys on the stage. Then, a pinpoint, small, miniscule, bright beam of light about the size of a golf ball appears to the right, on the front porch of the Cabin Stage, and as the spotlight widens and brightens you see the three members of the Angel Band who had been there all along, singing live in the dark the whole time. The effect in person was great, and the audience ate it up.

Here is news on the brand new project by the Angel band;

quote:
Angel Band's May 27 Release, With Roots & Wings, Garners National Attention
Trio To Take Lloyd Maines Produced Album On The Road This Summer

Nashville, Tenn.— The aptly named Angel Band features soaring, angelic three-part harmonies from three amazing singers—Nancy Josephson, Jen Schonwald and Kathleen Weber—each possessing a powerful, expressive voice that would make her the lead vocalist in any other band. Their sound is grounded in world-class musicianship, inventive and original songwriting and an irresistible mission to have and share a great time. That’s evident on their sophomore CD, With Roots & Wings, out this week on Appleseed Recordings. Legendary producer and pedal steel player Lloyd Maines produced and played on the album.

Angel Band first formed out of a weekly jam session headed up by Josephson's husband, GRAMMY™-nominated folk music legend David Bromberg. As the band coalesced, they often served as openers and backup singers for Bromberg as he began touring after a long hiatus. He returned the favor, becoming the cornerstone of Angel Band’s backing musicians. Playfully named Chum, the rest of the band is Bob Taylor (bass), Bobby Tangrea (mandolin, guitar, fiddle), Nate Grower (fiddle) and Jeff Wisor (fiddle). They were joined in the studio by Richard Crooks (drums), Bukka Allen (accordion), Marc Moss (hand drums, piano), Johnny Duke Lippincott (guitar) and Terri Hendrix (handclaps and the invaluable get down).

Angel Band will now take their critically acclaimed release on the road this summer, following last night's New York City CD release show at Joe's Pub and tonight's B.B. King's Blues Club performance. The band will continue to tour as opener for Bromberg's Quartet, as well as playing an increasing number of concerts on their own. Angel Band will continue to fly in the national spotlight with live broadcasts of their performances from WXPN's Free at Noon Concert on June 27th and Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour on July 28th (full schedule below).

Angel Band’s fearless and open-minded exploration of both music and theme is winning the band fans everywhere, including some high profile ones. Legendary singer Linda Ronstadt raves, “I love Angel Band’s harmonies, wonderfully strong voices, and beautiful songs!”

David Dye, host of NPR-syndicated World Café, has his finger on the pulse of the hottest things happening in the acoustic music scene. He says, “The stunning harmonies are just the beginning. Fine writing, three distinct voices, and Lloyd Maines tying it all together.”

The initial two tracks are an ear-opening declaration that Angel Band does not believe in boundaries. With Roots & Wings leads off with “Hey Papa Legba,” an Afro-world-beat a cappella tour de force that segues into the breakneck Zydeco of “I’ll Sing This Song For You.” It’s a jump that in less capable hands would not work, but Angel Band makes it a seamless transition. It is a bold move and one that pays off as it immediately gives the listener a sense of the depth and breadth of the band’s musical style. Both songs are originals, as are 12 of the album's 13 tracks.

It all adds up to a wildly eclectic, yet tightly cohesive sound. It is a sound that leads the listener to one undisputable conclusion: Let these angels sing, let them soar.

Early Praise for With Roots & Wings

"...it is easy to envision this excellent CD receiving a favorable response from both folk and alternative country audiences." -Alex Henderson, All Music Guide

"There is a power in this music that is undeniably compelling..." -Bob Gottlieb, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

"The exuberance and power in the trio's singing is overwhelming, thankfully each singer having a chance to also lead the ensemble, and show the musical colors each contributes to the heady blend." -Evan Hodge, Americana Roots

"For those who like their music clean, real and pure, this is for you ... the Angel Band ... heavenly." -George Peden, Country Stars Online

"There's plenty of harmonizing and ear-pleasing string music here, and Josephson's songwriting skills are sharp. But it's the unexpected twists and turns that make the biggest - and best - impression." -Jeffrey Sisk, McKeesport Daily News
