Summers Here Let's Rock and Listen to the Homegrown Show on mybobcountry.com 

2pm CST Sunday Everything She Wants by Wham! as covered by ULTRA-MEGA will be on https://www.youtube.com/c/LaGrungeMusic

and if you haven't been sensing a theme we showing are showing a new video Every Sunday 2pm CST for as long as we are able.

 

I have been playing music in bars since before I was of even of legal age to do so but this COVID-19 VIRUS has made that virtually impossible so I've been jamming with friends via the home studio.  Rewind to February we released It's True you may have noticed an unfamiliar name.  Jeremy Schreifels.

and here he is. This picture was taken while I was in the audience and he was playing drums with Sailor Jerri who just started her Kickstarter Campaign so they are going to be coming out with some new music to watch out for. 

Sorry back to our story Jeremy and I since starting to work together in Feb have created an EP of Cover Tunes and also reformed ULTRA-MEGA. We are currently working on a Full Album for ULTRA-MEGA.  So needless to say Jeremy is a monster drummer and avid creator who never really asks for the spotlight /maybe prefer to stay out of it but he's all rockstar and a helluva great guy who deserves a proper introduction to The Dirty Country Family. So for those of you keeping track at home that means that other than Your Hero which feature Todd Jameson and Nick Poshek and a couple of songs I produced myself Jeremy and I are responsible for 11 songs on this list 

and the albums worth of tunes for ULTRA-MEGA that as of yet are unreleased.  Would you be interested in supporting the New ULTRA-MEGA album?? Let us know in the comments below and or sign up to get the Dirty and we'll keep you informed as best as we can.  
So This Sunday Watch Youtube at 2pm

Next Sunday July 19th Tune Into My Bob Country  5pm CST

Where Jeremy( see above) and I (right) will Join Brian Powers (Left) on the illustriously Fabulous Homegrown Show. It's always fun to talk about music with Brian I'm sure we'll talk about the passing of one of our favorite Legends Charlie Daniels and we'll be debuting Fixer Upper for local radio and maybe even a sneak peak at next months covid inspired Still Alone as well as a bunch of cool music from friends and members of the Midwest CMA.  Sunday July 19th, 5-6pm CST

Lastly we will be releasing Still Alone on YouTube one week before its available on all other platforms but if you'd like

2020 is almost ½ way over June Makes Way For July and Summer Is Here 

It's hard for most of us to believe that 2020 is almost ½ way over.  Summer is here but so is COVID-19 and everyone in the world has changed because of it.  At first it seemed to bring us together like the world for a brief moment would come together to face an invisible enemy that literally had a strangle hold on the entire world.  It didn't take long for that to turn around and explode.  I myself haven't been any where other than the grocery store for curb side pick up for months. But close friends of mine and pics posted make it look like a bomb went off in Minneapolis. It's really confusing and a lot of misinformation is out there.  The good news is some things are slowly coming back.  

My buddies in the Hell Country Truckers just did a show last night at Le Musique room in Albertville outside in the parking lot.  It was like a drive in rock concert cool idea and very respectfully a lot of folks stayed in their cars but none the less enjoyed the music.  Sponsored by our friends at BOB FM.  Speaking of BOB FM July 19 a little more than a month from now I'll be Back on the Homegrown show but you should tune in every Sunday at 5pm with your new host Brandon Backstrom here's a link to listen live https://v7player.wostreaming.net/2956 

Because of the high risk of my household family members we will be watching over the next months and will hopefully be returning to live venues soon but until then we've been jamming in the studio with friends and tomorrow at 2pm CST our reimagination of the Doors Roadhouse Blues will Premier on YouTube

I even have a bit of a teaser to tide you over till then if you like

Top one for tomorrow teaser below it that was mostly for me because they both have the same thumb nail but if your easily confused like me it could help you too. We've been putting out a new video every week since April and it's been getting a little bigger each time which is always cool we'd love it if you subscribed and joined us and or pencil us in for any upcoming Sunday at 2pm CST here's what the schedule looks like past this Sunday

Premiere of "Wanna Be" by the Spice Girls Sun, Jun 21 https://youtu.be/mgq2_kaefBM

Premiere of "Fixer Upper" by Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band Sun, Jun 28 https://youtu.be/ujw6w_jnMvo

Can't Keep A Secret NOR Should You. 

Now that every musician artists and music professional I know is getting back to work today please remember that this won't change with complacency we need to actively be the voice as artists for the change we seek.  This road and this path will not be easy but nothing good ever is and if you'd like a good reason to inspire you turn on any news outlet.  This is way beyond a MN problem. It's a United States Problem and I hope and pray that what happened to George Floyd NEVER EVER happens again.

We have a ton a new music coming at you this month including an opportunity to hear reimagined/cover versions of Alicia Keys Girl On Fire TODAY at 12pm CST syncsummit.com/synccafesignup you can hear along with the artists the reactions to their creations and even give some feedback of your own if you'd like.

Can't Keep A Secret is out and rocking on YouTube BIG TIME thank you all for watching we definitely couldn't have pulled that off without you sharing us with your friends.  Speaking of don't forget the Play It Forward Contest.  We are giving away a multi-media package valued well over 100$.  Here's how it works everyone who replies to an email from our Dirty Emailer with "Play It Forward Contest" will be entered.  If you Forward the emailer to a friend and they reply to enter into the contest you are both entered.   Obviously this doesn't help either of us by spamming friends we don't want you to do that but we do want you to share us with your friends who might dig us.  We definitely think that should be rewarded.

Covid-19 Confessions 

It's True COVID-19 is effecting us all over the world.  I watched Zac Brown break down because he had to layoff 90 people he'd just spent the last 5 years with and I wouldn't wish that on any one.  It's bad enough all my local friends who depend on the venues, the cooks, waitresses, bartenders and owners.  It sort of feels like a bad reality tv version of punked only it's not funny.

What's Next?? 

After Freaking out for a bit because there's no way in hell this is only impacting 14 days I'm going to take this as a sign. 

Funny story 2nd time I went full time into music it was by necessity.  I got laid off  from my truck driving job and then started gigging in 3 projects

NO GIGGING ALLOWED right now sooooo a ton of my friends are going live and or you can join me in watching the replays on Midwest Music TV

April 1st is less than 13 days away lets hope things get a little closer to normal by then.
