In this installment of Excursions, The Relentless Mules visit WYSO to share their energetic brand of Bluegrass.
Based in Columbus, the Relentless Mules have played all across the country bringing high quality Bluegrass wherever they go. Many of the band’s members grew up in the tradition of Bluegrass, and this quality comes across in their playing, as you can tell they all greatly enjoy the music they play as much as their audience does.
Jared Welch and Jacob Pflanzer began playing music together in high school and have been performing under the name Army of Infants for about two years. As the band prepares to embark on a tour, they've just released a limited edition 7 inch.
Army of Infants visited the WYSO studios to perform live and chat with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about their upcoming tour, the new record and the evolution of their music throughout the recording process.
After Sleepybird went on hiatus and eventually disbanded, the members founded themselves continuing to play music together but with a slightly modified sound. They eventually named this project Ape the Ghost and began performing live around the Miami Valley.
Hailing from Yellow Springs, the members of Soul Rebels combine reggae, funk, jazz and rock and roll influences to create that sound with a distinct groove and lyrics with a positive message. The band visited the WYSO studios to perform a live set on Kaleidoscope and chatted with host Juliet Fromholt about how they came together and found their sound.
It's an evening of firsts as Kaleidoscope broadcasts its first show from the new WYSO studios. Tim Pritchard and the Boxcar Suite (Tim Pritchard, Phil Caviness, Tony Moore and Trevor Bell) are the evening's guests performing the first live set in the new building ahead of their first public performance at Side Show 7 on May 12, 2012 at the Yellow Cab Building in downtown Dayton. The band performs an acoustic set and previews songs from their album, set to be released in late May.
