Robert Randolph and the Family Band

Oct 12, 2012

This week we're featuring Robert Randolph and the Family Band, recorded live at JazzFest 2012. Randolph plays the pedal steel guitar. And he plays it quite well - Rolling Stone Magazine named him one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. His band is literally his family - it includes cousins and siblings - only one of the band members is not a blood relative. Their music is a fusion of blues, rock, gospel and roots. Their song "Ain't Nothing Wrong With That" has been on several TV shows, including Grey's Anatomy, a whole series of Subway commercials and on the Discovery Channel. This show is featured as the fall pledge show for NCNM Radio.
