The Big Wu
For the record....
Here's some reality: T.V. rots your brain, and the internet is no substitute for social activity. Seems basic, but it did take a little therapy to recognize these sneaky truths, but not the horizontal-on -the-couch kind of therapy. Did you know that there are many fine and upstanding Americans who honor the theraputic value of live rock-n-roll music and, susequently, beer... The Big Wu does.
The musical influences that helped create the Big Wu were loud, and large, and heartfelt. And over the past seven years, this Minnesota troupe has stepped into the role of creating the type of music that wants to course through your veins. Writing in truly American styles, the Big Wu slides, bends, rumbles, and chicken-picks with on the top intensity and good-time fervor.
This is inclusive rock-n-roll, people. So boys bring your girls, parents bring your kids, therapists bring your patients. Let the Big Wu loosen the straps of your daily burden with real vibrations. Coming to a bullshitless beer hall near YOU!! - See more at: http://www.mjgpro.com/artists/thebigwu/#sthash.sWXaNz3h.dpuf
Cosmic Railroad is a jam band based out of southeastern Wisconsin, born sometime in 1999. As the story goes, all the guys in Cosmic Railroad were involved with their own respected bands. These bands would book shows toget
her from time to time, then they began having a jam session at the end of those nights, consisting of everybody from both bands at once. Sometimes you would have four guitar players, two bass players, two drummers, a percussionist and a whole slew of singers all at once on stage, throwing it down. This is when the idea of “Cosmic Railroad” was conceived. At first, the bands would cover a lot of tunes from “The Grateful Dead, Phish, Dylan, etc.” Then, as things started to take off even more the bands thought it would be a good idea to learn each other's songs so they didn’t always have to play cover tunes when they got together. Over time, they did away with the other bands and started to book shows as Cosmic Railroad. This is what they've been doing since.
