“…Greensboro’s The Grand Ole Uproar recalls The Grateful Dead at its most concise (particularly the band’s 1970 one-two peak of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty), pairing deliberately loose folk with Texas twang and electric textures. (Think: “Uncle John’s Band” in double-time.)”

“Back in the mid-90’s The Black Crowes were mixing up Lowell George and Levon Helm with early 70’s rock bands and Sly Stone. The Grand Ole Uproar take it further, lending to their country carnival sound a back porch feel and a mellow-down-easy carefree vibe.”


The Grand Ole Uproar is:
Josh Watson– guitar, vocals
Dan Bayer– bass, vocals
Mazagan Sietsma– drums
Emily Stewart—banjo, vocals
Wake Clinard —lap steel
Mark Dillon— keys, accordion
