Jalan Crossland Band
This is the second appearance for Jalan Crossland on No Cover, No Minimum Radio - but the first with his full band. The singer/songwriter from the small town of Ten Sleep, Wyoming draws in music fans with his homespun appeal. He writes songs that are relatable to the listener whether the tune's lyrics are funny or thought provoking. His latest CD, "No Cause For Despair," was released last summer. Eleven new compositions highlight the project. Longtime collaborator and bass player Shaun Kelley and drummer and percussionist Pat Madsen joined the guitar and banjo picking Crossland to record the new music at Thunderground Sound Studios in Laramie, Wyoming. This week's program features the Jalan Crossland Band at the Rapid City VFW (November 22, 2014) during Beermageddon. The concert was presented by the Black Hills Blues Society.
