Live on The Cosmic American Jamboree, with Pinetops Stephen
Thursday, November 5, 2009 1pm
The guys in the Band of Heathens are fond of saying they became a unit by accident. But that’s like saying the Big Bang was an accident. Unplanned, maybe, but hardly random. One might even argue that a kind of destiny was involved. The merger of singer/songwriters/multi- instrumentalists Ed Jurdi, Gordy Quist and Colin Brooks, with bassist Seth Whitney and drummer John Chipman, from their respective solo careers and bands may not be akin to a cosmic explosion, but their new album, One Foot in the Ether, offers irrefutable evidence that they were meant to be together — and have evolved into a solid entity worthy of the comparisons they receive to the Black Crowes, the Band and Little Feat.
Tune in to 91.1 FM or wtju.net on November 5 at 1 pm to hear the Band of Heathens come together to play live for you. They will be stopping by on their way to a local performance at The Southern (former Gravity Lounge location) later that night and will be raring to entertain.
