Blue Water Highway comes from the working class, coastal town background that has informed the work of so many of rock’s greatest writers and artists. They take their name from the roadway that links their hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas to Galveston, where the cops, the teachers, the baristas and the chemical plant workers travel to work hard and to play hard, blowing off steam, dancing to their favorite bands. Blue Water Highway’s music is the soundtrack for their lives.
“Best Friend” is the first single from their upcoming album Heartbreak City, coming out on Blue Water Highway Records/Thirty Tigers on June 8th. With a hook that’s a mile wide, it chronicles the lives, loves and friendships that sustain us.
The Dead Jam House Band was founded in January of 2012 when Fort Collins music scene veteran, Dan Loiz was asked to host a Grateful Dead themed open jam at a small venue by a friend and local business owner. Co-founder, Graham Miller joined the band at this time. The jam became successful, consisting partially of prepared and practiced sets by the House Band, as well as open jam sessions where other like-minded musicians could bring their instruments and perform together. Over time the attendance for this event grew, but the venue eventually had to close. At that time, Loiz was contacting by the booking agent for Avogadro’s Number and asked to bring the event there. The first Dead Jam at Avogadro’s was in September of 2013. Once at Avogadro’s, the attendance nearly tripled. Ever since, Dead Jam’s success has allowed it to survive as a monthly event.
