Trampled Under Foot
This week, it's the Kansas City based blues group, Trampled Under Foot, recorded live at Jazzfest, presented by the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society, at Yankton Trail Park on July 18th, 2013. Siblings Danielle, Kris, and Nick Schnebelen grew up with the blues. Their parents, Bob and Lisa, were active in the thriving Kansas City blues scene, playing in local bands and competing in the Kansas City Blues Challenge. Unfortunately, Bob and Lisa's band didn't make it to the International Blue Challenge in Memphis - but their kids did. When Trampled Under Foot arrived in Memphis for the 2008 International Blues Challenge, they were followed by huge throngs of hometown supporters. Trampled Under Foot has been on a roll since they took first place in the competition and Nick won the Albert King award for best guitarist. They have become popular headliners at clubs, festivals and cruises around the world and they've released a brand new CD titled "Badlands" and a DVD on their own label, "TUF Records." Bob Margolin, a former member of the Muddy Waters band, wrote a review on Trampled Under Foot, saying "their family band tightness and the power of their recordings and performances have already made them one of the most popular and visible bands on today's blues scene." The band includes Kris Schnebelen on drums, Nick Schnebelen on guitar and vocals, and Danielle Schnebelen on bass and vocals.
