Friends of August West at Paddy Murphy’s – Bangor, ME 11/18/17
November 18 @ 9:30 pm - 12:30 am
Friends of August West are an extreme talent within the New England music scene! Members hail from all over New England, creating a collection of seasoned musicians that have been in the music business for collectively over 40 years. They are a Grateful Dead cover band supergroup that consists of members from The Worthy Bones, The Rhythm Ship, Merther, Fules Gold, Between Dead Stations, Bolidoscope, Hambone, The Northside Ramblers, Singepole Mountain Band, Tomorrow Morning, sirEEL, and Mudseason! They can play one show as a rock band, complete with lead and rhythm guitars, bass, keyboards, and two drummers; the following night they can play a DeadGrass set, with banjo, violin, harmonica, and acoustic guitars. Friends of August West provides a unique experience that the avid fan will enjoy, yet they are always able to blow minds within the jams and explore new genres and sounds out of the old folk songs of the Dead that we know and love.

Truth Virus Records:
Truth Virus Records is an independent record label out of Bangor, ME that discovers the musical diamonds in the rough and helps them rise through the ranks within the music industry. Seeking to be a catalyst between creativity, community, and self, TVR dares to take on challenges that major labels would never consider doing, and they have grown immensely because of those choices. With the recent addition of their non-profit organization, TVR Youth, they are now revolutionizing the role of a record company, taking on a more personal, organic, and original approach in an already over-industrialized and commercialized industry. Also functioning as a production and management company, TVR is a jack-of-all-trades in the music realm and a rapidly growing force in the music community.
