After being named one of Rolling Stone's top 10 artists to watch, releasing 3 studio albums, and spending 6 straight years in a van touring the world and opening for acts such as The Who and Van Halen, Boulder, CO based Rock band Rose Hill Drive decided to take a break. Now, 5 years later, they have resumed with the original 3 piece lineup and have a brand new album in their pocket.

Grateful Web is thrilled to present, Ghost Light, at the Fox Theatre, Boulder, Colorado, Friday, March 29th.  Join us for this fabulous event, as some of today’s hottest musicians team up with one of the best venues in the country for a quintessential exploratory musical experience.

For Upstate, the last few years have been a time of profound exploration and self-discovery. As the band knocked off milestone after milestone on the road, their sound, their lineup, and even their name all underwent dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging and thrilling all at once, those changes have finally culminated in the band’s dazzling new self-titled album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll.

Sadly, I believe this is what most people think of when they think of jazz. A bunch of loud instruments trying to drive you mad through cacophony. This is unfortunate and the sentiment is misguided. Jazz, to me, is a concept about how music, especially “live” music, can be played. A concept that promotes a mostly unscripted, free flowing exchange of sounds and ideas. A formula that elevates originality over predictability. In other words, jazz is all about improvisation, spontaneity, and taking chances. Certainly, there are cases when the formula fails, but when the stars align, jazz can lead to most beautiful, meaningful, and redeeming music you will ever hear. It’s really an approach to music and spans a wide spectrum of the musical landscape, from bluegrass to rock n’ roll to the more textbook definition of jazz, including blues, bebop, and hardbop. Bands and artists – to name a few -that live or lived by this jazz ethos include Miles Davis, The Grateful Dead, John Coltrane, The Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins, Steve Kimock, and Phish.
