Reviews of Live Shows

 

 

Charleston SC :: The Pour House :: 4.19.2008–4.20.2008
 

Blueground Undergrass made a two-day stop in Charleston where a handful of lucky bluegrass fans witnessed a pinnacle performance from the band's original lineup, which only a few short months ago was nothing more than vague remnant of a promising yet heavily conflicted past. "We were fighting like cats and dogs in 2001," banjo player and lead singer Jeff Mosier told me before the show. "But now we can't even remember why we were fighting." The newly reformed original lineup seemed as though it hadn't lost a step. Not even two songs into the first set it became abundantly clear that not only were these guys playing on the same page but they were having a lot of fun doing it.

— Mason Cummings, Jambase, April 29, 2008

 


Reviews for Faces

 

 

 

Relix Magazine

On its fourth outing, Atlanta's Blueground Undergrass distills the various elements of the group's bluegrass-, jazz- and rock-tinted melange and come up with a mix that's sweet, heavy on the twang and entirely easy- going. Primarily a showcase for ex-Aquarium Rescue Unit banjoist and vocalist Jeff Mosier and talented fiddle player David Blackmon, BU's Faces blends precise picking, clean guitar and the presence of a few good friends—Col. Bruce Hampton, Jimmy Herring and Gary "El Buho" Gazaway, all of whom turn up on the slightly spacy "Ole Love Ole Tune." Mosier and Blackmon's down-home teamwork shines through on
the title track and a quartet of carefully selected covers (most notably, Guy Clark's "Dublin Blues" and the Garcia/Hunter tune "Black Muddy River"); the band's original work is a little lighter, but still bright and bouncy.

— Andy Stonehouse, Relix, June 2006

 

John Shelton Ivany's Top 21

The intricacies in their music makes the album exciting to listen to. Particularly in the song "Faces," the group explodes into the full range of moods and styles they are capable of, and it all works together seamlessly. [excerpt]
