Band Post #1 – Quicksand Marching Band

Proof that you can moonwalk your way out of any situation

Proof that you can moonwalk your way out of any situation

The first band review of the new site! I figured I’d open with a bang and share my own band first. Quicksand Marching Band was formed in Davis in the spring of 2009 when the local radio station “KDVS 90.3” was looking for folk/bluegrass bands to play live on air. Within a week, Quicksand was formed and ready. They became a staple of the Davis/Sacramento folk scene, and continue to play and tour today.

This will be one of the few posts that don’t have a solid description/review of the music itself. I’m not quite narcissistic enough to manage that. But if you’re a fan of bluegrass, folk, blues, or roots music, you’ll definitely enjoy this album.

The album is available on Bandcamp free to stream

Videos of live performances are available on Youtube

New Sections, New Posts, Same Amount of Awesome.

The site is back up and running, and this time it’s going in a whole new direction! I’ve added two sections, Songs/Music and Media Resources. The Songs/Music section will be updated every week with a review of a band or song. I’ll also be throwing in some of my own music (past and present). The Media Resource section will be links and summaries of important articles and websites I used in the past when learning about social media/marketing/PR. I’ll add any new resources I come across now as well if I think they’re worthwhile.

So welcome to the new and improved blog. In other words, get ready to feel like this every time you read it.

You're welcome internet.
