Frontier Ruckus

This was the AMAZING Alternative Country band that played at Maha Music Fest!!!

At a young age, the courses of Matthew Milia and David Jones somehow converged within the large and vaguely defined world of Metropolitan Detroit. And from that point on, with merely a banjo and a guitar, they moved forward towards one common creation-something that reflected the very world from which they came with a zeal and vividness afforded only to the young. The singular vision of Frontier Ruckus that modernly exists, growing fuller each day, is eternally rattling with youthfulness impossible to shed. Unblinking and ferocious in its expression, it spits out with every gasp dusky images of a landscape to which it is inextricably bound. And now, infinitely bolstered by the horns and singing-saw of Zachary Nichols, and the percussion of Ryan Etzcorn, Frontier Ruckus is perched in waiting, prepared to bring to the greater world a new, hollering, unyielding poetry-the voice of memory, desperate and beautiful; the very face of a confused and dissolving locality that one can remember as home.

    Yeah...I'm a sucka for the steel guitar. As I posted on Youtube under the song below... "The steel guitar. Some people are brought to tears by babies, kittens, wasp stings, or the flu.. For me...the steel guitar makes me weep like a child.." ;-)

      Well...I'm sort of a sucker for babies and kittens too. ;-)

    I have flaked out on the last few events... crossing my fingers I actually make this one. When I saw this on The Waiting Room's website, I knew you were a shoo in Darren.
