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
