Sights and Sounds of the DjBGB!

August 18, 2008

The DejaBlue Grass Band’s segment on “Georgia Gazette” aired on Friday, and then again twice today (Monday8/18)!! Kudos to Edgar Treiguts who did a fabulous job! It was a great experience. (GPB listeners may be interested to know that Edgar is an accomplished musician in his own right, having studied classical violin…we’ve asked him to come practice with us. Can you imagine a song or two with twin fiddles?!!? Be still my musical heart. Mark, Joey, Keith, and I sat down with Edgar a couple of weeks ago for this interview. If we play our cards right, we’re gonna do a live show in their studio sooner rather than later.

You can listen to the interview at the -8:35 mark of this podcast. (Click on 8/15 version of Georgia Gazette)

Also, I believe the “live” broadcast on CBS Atlanta’s “Better Mornings” will finally air tomorrow (8/19) between 6:15 and 6:30AM. I’ll try and capture it and put it up on the website.

  1. “The deja bluegrass band serves up a fresh song selection of truegrass, piled high with pop and newgrass, lightly salted with some soul-shaking gospel and the mix is truly a mix of stewgrass mixed high on harmony, melody, and tonal sound, second to none”. And that’s puttin’ it mildly! From their mix of authentic sound straight from the North Georgia Mountains, the deja bluegrass band has a unique sound that will satisfy even the most delicate ear for bluegrass harmonies! From the original bluegrass enthusiast himself, with the likes of Mr. Bill Monroe, to the newest acquired ear for the twangy, loping craggy river mountain sound in the crowd, the DejaBlue Grass Band proves time and time again that a good time on stage translates into to a “ho-down” good time party for one and all. Even for those few neophytes who claim to not have an ear for bluegrass, by the end of the session, their toes are a dangling, their heels are a moving, and their lips are a humming along! From the traditional melodies of “Like a fox on the run” to the DJBGB original of “Bucket Full of Rain”, the toes, the feet and the lips just can’t keep still – but then why would they want to! Thank God that the Americana sound of the mountains is alive and well with the sound of the deja bluegrass band!


  2. Wow! Thanks, Kenneth. ‘preciate the love, brotha!
