“The Road I Travel”
GroundUP is a SICK jam band out of Denver Colorado. A freshly ground mix of
Russ Griffin – guitar/vocals
Dave Halchak – guitar/vocals
Trevor Sinnard – bass/vocals
Zach West – drums
This was one of my favorite bands from the THC Music Fest. All of these guys can jam out hard and their music has such an awesome vibe. If you ever get the opportunity to see them live, you should definitely take it. Their updated tour schedule can be found here.
Each member of Ground Up provides their own distinct flavor to the music, seamlessly switching between funky riffs, high-energy improvised jams, and grooving mini-suites.
Unfortunately, Ground UP has not recorded their first album yet, due to some financial trouble. The band hopes to get in the studio some time next spring. If you want to help them record their CD, send them a message on Myspace or Facebook, you’d be doing the world a great favor.
These guys need to be recorded! Right now online they mostly just have live recordings, which is okay, but it will never compare to seeing them live, and if you don’t live in Colorado, that’s not really an option. They need to take what they’re doing in CO to the whole world. These guys kick ass! Show your support, even a dollar helps, and pay pal makes it really easy to send money to anyone these days, for no charge. Just something to think about. p.s. The band did not ask me to say that.
