Trampled Under Foot

Siblings Danielle, Kris and Nick Schnebelen have a life-long connection with the blues. Growing up in Kansas City, MO, the trio soaked up the music of their parents, who were active in the thriving blues scene. After years of playing in separate bands, Danielle, Kris and Nick decided to keep things in the family and formed Trampled Under Foot. In 2008, they headed to Memphis for the IBC and walked away from the competition with First Place honors. Riding the wave of support following the IBC, Trampled Under Foot was ready to take their style of power blues/rock to audiences around the world. The trio gained national exposure after sharing the stage with a number of lauded musicians, including Koko Taylor and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. After a series of headlining tours and stand out performances at blues festivals around the world, Trampled Under Foot has become one of the hottest bands on the blues circuit today.

The Mojo Roots

If you think there's nothing new and exciting coming out of the blues genre, you haven't heard The Mojo Roots. With performances that turn on a dime from a driving, hard-hitting shuffle to an aching, tear-dripping slow blues, the Mojo Roots brand of soul-soaked blues is captivating audiences in their home state of Missouri and beyond.

Fronting the band on harp and vocals, Jordan Thomas loses himself in every song---with incredible results. Thomas's passionate vocals and fiery harp-playing truly set The Mojo Roots apart. And when off the harp, his rhythm guitar work fills just the right niche. On the lead guitar, Trevor ''T.J.'' Judkins is quickly winning accolades as an incredibly virtuosic young guitarist, with a rich, studied tone and a patient economy of playing that is all too rare. Bassist Jim Rush, a stalwart Midwest blues performer for over three decades, sets the groove with bright, punchy bass lines. And as an accomplished front man in his own right, Rush also shares the microphone on some tunes. Paired with drummer Andy Naugle's clean and controlled backbeat, steeped in the great Chicago tradition, Rush and Naugle form an unshakeable rhythm foundation for this blues tour-de-force.

Having earned a Semi-Finalist title at the 2013 International Blues Challenge on the legendary Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee, The Mojo Roots are poised to take their place on the national stage. Their new 2013 album release, What Kind of Fool, is already gaining widespread attention for its soul-soaked sound and powerful songwriting. If there was ever a doubt about the future of the genre, rest assured: The Mojo Roots are striking just the right balance between preserving and further developing the blues.
