Mr. Blotto was born in Chicago as an off-night vehicle for musicians who loved each others playing but were in different bands at the time. The only rule was that they would only play what they loved. That philosophy continues today and has led Mr. Blotto into unique musical situations.
Mr. Blotto takes the Jam band asthetic into areas unfamiliar to the standard Jam Scene. They have been known to cover entire albums by Led Zeppelin and the Who as well as perform entire shows of Country and Reggae. Artists as diverse as the Grateful Dead, the Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson and The Velvet Underground have seen their material interpreted by Mr. Blotto in the 2000+ shows the band has performed in the last 15 years, yet covers only pepper the bands hefty catalog of original material stemming from five studio albums and other unreleased crowd favorites.
The Grasshopper were born in the spring of 2006. Playing with great meaning and understanding to their audience, they continue to leap bounds of musical limits and expectations for a greater goal.
In the beginning...
The "Grasshoppers" was an idea, a concept formed by great psychedelic warriors who carried the name "Grasshoppers" until it was passed on into musical form. The message was and will always be to "set the monkey free", The monkey in your heart, head, and, soul.
