The Mooseknuckle Brothers wiped out our A/C

Winner of the Famous Dave's Battle of The Blues Bands recently, The Mooseknuckle Brothers entertained us, to put it mildly. Check them out here

(But whatever you do, DON'T Google images of "mooseknuckle").

Funky Sensations On thie episode of Radio Pocho we get experimental with the jams. If we could bottle up Radio Pocho and give it away as a song it would probably sound something like the Nortec Collective song we feature.

Additional Ocote Soul Sounds, Gwen Mcrae, Taana Gardner and some salsa cuts by Los Adolescentes, the Latin Brothers and even a merengue by Olga Tañon. Enjoy poch@s.

Recorded for MinneCultu Honeydogs perform new material before heading into the studio to record its new CD, “What Comes After” (November release on Grain Belt Records).

Written in earnest and recorded in less than six days, “What Comes After” blends roots pop with orchestral and soul arrangements. From the brash title track to the psychedelic “The Devil You Do,” the Honeydogs are an inspired ensemble. With shades of Leonard Cohen, Harry Nilsson, Nick Drake and Tony Joe White, the new CDis a soul folk and country record tracked with minimal overdubs.

Band includes:

Adam Levy – guitars/vocals
Brian Halverson – guitars/vocals
Darren Jackson – guitar/vocals/banjitar
Trent Norton – bass
Peter J. Sands – keyboards/accordion
Peter Anderson – drums
Stephen Kung – trumpet
Matt Darling – trombone
