An eclectic aggregation composed of singer/multi-instrumentalists Dan Wheetman, Jon Wilcox, Mike Phelan, Ed Littlefield Jr. and Jerry Fletcher – the band can sing and play anything with spot-on feel, from roots to rock, blues to bluegrass, gospel to stone country, which is what they’ve been doing – to the ongoing delight of a fervent cult that includes many of their fellow musicians – throughout their first quarter century as a working unit. Their trademark multi-part harmonies never cease to captivate, whether on record or in live performance.
The band just keeps on rolling. They've recently completed recording a new album with Larry Campbell producing. Larry is not only a master musician but also a three-time Grammy-award winning producer and recipient of the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. A good deal of the album was recorded at the venerable Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock. Look for the album release in 2016!Find out more »
Balto breathes new life into American rock. By throwing away the recipe book, they deftly blend a multitude of influences into a thoroughly musical and danceable gumbo that hits the spot every time.
This band plays real music, the kind that makes your feet move and your head spin. Forget Russia, Balto is mercurial American roots music - song-driven rock’n’roll – a hair-raising live band out of Portland –electric guitars and Hammond organs, swirling psychedelia, an occasional Bonzo drum flourish, held down on bass by an ex-pugilist with a deep admiration for James Jamerson. You can feel the funk and boogie woogie, woven deftly within classic rock arrangements; the sensitivity of CSNY and the anthemic rock of The Black Crowes, the hooks of Tom Petty and the jabs of Stevie Ray Vaughn.Find out more »
