Little Marsh Overflow
One of the fastest growing names in the Midwest music scene, Little Marsh Overflow is quickly growing into a force to be reckoned with. An original Rock band, [LMO] draws on a wide variety of influences to create their own unique style of music. While the band has always been stumped when pressed for a quick answer as to what type of music they play, Stephanie Music from KyndMusic.com considers it a “progressive rock, funk jam art form.”
[LMO] is proud to boast an extremely tight and talented rhythm section that’s guaranteed to keep people off their seat and on their feet. This solid foundation is heavily complimented by soulful guitar, crafty keys, and powerful vocals. It’s no wonder that Rick’s Café, the authority on South Central Wisconsin’s music scene, considers them a “phenomenal band” and a “must see local act.”
After original members Wade Coisman (bass), Mark Weber (guitar) and Joshua Gregory (keyboards) formed the group in the swamplands of Northern Door County, WI, in the Spring of 2001, they quickly made a name for themselves as one of the top rock/jam acts in the state. In the fall of 2002 they made the move to Madison, WI and the following year recorded their first studio endeavor, “The Causeway Effect”. Later, in 2005, they we’re nominated for 2 Madison Area Music Awards in the category’s of “Best Jam Band” and “Best Jam Album”.
Shortly thereafter, while auditioning new drummers they asked a good friend, Kai Andersen, to fill in on a couple of dates. It wasn’t long before both parties realized the final piece of the puzzle was put in place, and with a new sound, the band has been gaining momentum at a whirl wind pace. Making new friends and fans at each performance, word of mouth has never traveled so fast about the group, no doubt in part due to the extremely high energy stage show they put on. [LMO] is 4 individuals who absolutely love to do what they do and it shows. The band is currently in the process of completing their next studio album, while at the same time, recording various live performances which will soon be available for all.
Baghdad SCUBA Review
Sprouting out of the dawn in Madison Wisconsin, Baghdad Scuba Review is a first-rate model of what the band is attempting to introduce to its listeners: full scale, well disciplined progressive-thinking rock music. As a sextet of uncommonly talented musicians, this entertaining group of artists carries impeccable musicianship to spawn a chimerical stage presence and as an equipped band has embraced a sizeable following.
The unintended Founder of the band, John Schneider came forth from California as an ex-member of One Fluid Ounce. As an experienced Lead Singer, Songwriter and Rhythm Guitarist, this effectual musical athlete broke ground in Madison as a well-known regular gigging solo artist. Digging to find a scene, he asked talented musicians from other popular local acts to sit in with him. Consequently this started an improvised version of BSR in mid 2004, a group of rotating musicians dubbed The John Schneider Project. As a band that was known by most during its time as a very catchy and talented cover band, the same performers would eventually evolve, sending The John Schneider Project on its way to merely carry out an established band from the labor room; Baghdad SCUBA Review.
One of the first recruited members, bassist Erik Riedasch, a seed of pure ambition, was known to be the harness of such previous bands as Groovulous Glove and Minglewood. Soon after Chad Thompson, Lead guitarist, Singer/Songwriter and guitar connoisseur came to as an artful and masterful performer sent from The Green Situation and Minglewood. Following was Justin Gerstner, the logical and imaginative drummer that provides creativity, docking after his time with The Northern Pines Band. The bands poetic percussionist Rob Bloch, also an equipment genius, dedicated himself after floating over from former band Groovulous Glove. Finally, from the band Runga Kutta, deviceful and decorative Keyboardist Jason Krueger joined as a musical craftsman who continues to add freshness to the sound of BSR.
Since the band officially announced its name for the first time on New Years of 2005, Baghdad SCUBA Review has released their debut album Testing The Waters, opened for nationally known acts and not only performed, but have been asked back at the worlds largest music festival, Summerfest. BSR has also taken the stage at Farmapalooza, the Grateful Garcia Gathering (3G Fest), Atwood Summerfest, the Ides of March Festival and the Grickle Grass Jam. As a regular gigging Madison based band, BSR has played at such well known venues as: The Barrymore (Madison, WI), The Annex (Madison, WI), The High Noon Saloon (Madison, WI) The King Club (Madison, WI) The House of Rock (Eau Claire, WI) and is a perpetual band at Mr. Roberts (Madison, WI), which has become known to the band as home base since this venue is where it all began.
