Grizzly Adams @ Littlefeld 8/14/10

I was expecting utter greatness and I got it! Whatever you can imagine John Medeski, Ben Perowsky and Jamie Saft doing in a Rock band would probably come up short to what this turned out to be. The bass player certainly fit right in.

Ben was a monster and had me in Heaven. Boy was he hitting those drums! A complete monster. Medeski was unbelievable.

This was my kind of band! Yet another dream band I could have never thought up myself.

Here's an article about how this band started.

And here's their myspace page which includes a vid.

GRIZZLY ADAMZ is a new Catskill Mountains Rock Supergroup.

Featuring John Medeski (Medeski, Martin, and Wood, The Word, Trey Anastasio, Phil Lesh) on organ and vox; Jamie Saft (Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn) on guitar and vox; Danny Blume (Lounge Lizards, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Lisa Loeb, Klezmatics) on bass and vox; and Ben Perowsky (Rickie Lee Jones, Roy Ayers, Mike Stern, Joan as Police- woman) on drums and vox, Grizzly Adamz is the culmination of 20 years of collaborations between its members.
Joining forces for the first time as a unit, these four NY legends have finally combined to break down the boundaries between Blues, Rock, Soul, Jazz, Psych, and Improvised Musics. Expect nothing less than an explosion of American Roots Musics that channels The Band, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix, and Blue Cheer.
