Live Music Is Better

That’s what a former coworker of mine would always say, and I believe it to be true. To check out some live, original music, and possibly some tasty covers, you can see Loveless Root (pictured) at the Tipton Pork Festival* on Thursday, 9-9-10, from 8-10 p.m. on the Pizza King Stage. I heard Loveless Root play at this year’s Backyard Grillmaster Challenge (United Way Taste of Kokomo), and enjoyed their jam-band-oriented vibe.

Jesse Bieber (on the right)  describes Loveless Root as blues/rock/jazz/folk fusion. If that’s too many slashes for you to follow, just note that some of their influences have been The Doors, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, and Pink Floyd.

I spoke with Jesse recently, and he is passionate about creating and performing original music with his Loveless Root band mates and other area musicians. He’s also committed to bringing more original bands to the Kokomo area.

If Thursday is short notice for you, another opportunity to hear Loveless Root will happen this Saturday afternoon (9-11-10) at The Elbow Room in Kokomo. First, Josh Mast plays from 3-4 p.m., then Loveless Root from 4-5:30 p.m., followed by Barrel of Monkeys from 5:30-7 p.m.

I give you permission to go and have a great time. Now, you have no excuse to miss.

    Actually, tonight it’s going to be Barrel of Monkeys from 8-9 and Loveless Root from 9-10. The bands share some members between them, but it’s a totally different feel from one to the other. Check us out! It’s going to be a great evening.

  3. […] My friend, Jesse Bieber, has a burning passion for original music. He loves to listen, he loves to perform, he loves to connect with other bands, and even help them find gigs together or alone. In other words, he lives music. I’ve written about hearing his band once before… […]
