Well, well, well… The Foresters made a late run, but Michigan’s own Black Jake and the Carnies held on to become our Ear2theground’s Band of the Month for October!  For those of you playing at home, they are officially the first Crabgrass band to become Band of the Month.  They are are also the first band from Ypsilanti, Michigan to be Band of Month.  Trivia, in fourth grade our class did a huge mural of the United States in the hallway of our school, and we each were assigned a state to paint.  We also had to do a report on that state.  My state? Michigan.  I know right? Amazing the way the world works.

Black Jake and the Carnies play a raucous blend of country, bluegrass and punk.  They are tons o’ fun and they make a great Band of Month. 

Once again, we had a great group of Featured Artists – probably our most diverse group yet, and I am grateful for all the people I got to know this month.
It’s November now… and time to unveil a new batch of Featured Artists.  We’ll be doing that soon – and trying something new….
