Re: “Scott Law

Multifaceted artist Scott Law is an accomplished guitar master, singer-songwriter and recording artist operating at the very highest level of his craft. Hailed as an “esteemed flatpicker” by Acoustic Guitar, Law is equally reverent and inventive on steel strings whether in a lead or supporting role.

Law’s versatility on the guitar ranges from the flatpicking school of Doc Watson, to the hardcore country pickings of Clarence White, Albert Lee and Don Rich, to the electric blues of Mike Bloomfield, while also giving a feel and fluidity reminiscent of Jerry Garcia.

A not-so-secret weapon sought after for his distinctive ability to elevate the potency of any collaboration, Law is a fearless improviser. His original songs and story-like solos come straight from the heart of rock, r&b, country and bluegrass, granting him the creative latitude to constantly push the envelope and deliver an unforgettable experience.

Law has performed with an array of bluegrass, American roots, rock and jam band luminaries including Phil Lesh & Friends, longtime musical accomplices The String Cheese Incident, Darol Anger, Tim & Nicki Bluhm, Tony Furtado, The Mother Hips, Crooked Still, Peter Rowan, The Travelin' McCourys, Leftover Salmon, Danny Barnes, Railroad Earth, Jerry Joseph, Melvin Seals and more.

Re: “Alive After Five: Magic Giant

Magic Giant. One of the greatest bands Ive seen in the last 20+ years. This band is about ready to bust out BIG! I dont bandy about with any undeserved accolades but I was left truly speechless by the performance I saw today in the 95 heat at Alive After 5.

Not since I was floored back in November of 1994 by the then unheard of Dave Matthews Bands performance at The Backstage in Seattle have I been so excited by a new band. Seriously. Smart catchy excellently crafted jam-pop tribal mayhem with sweet-ass vocals delivered by Austin Bis to an audience of 4 generations that this band owned from the first 3 minutes on stage. They had 1000 people in their pocket and commanded a stage presence I havent seen in decades from any act.

Brian Zaghi blew me away as he wielded a cello on a guitar strap as Bis jumped around and off the stage and into the crowd like the pied piper. And ohhh, the tribal drumming...

These guys delivered and they ran the crowd like seasoned pros. Watch em and love em. I did.

Re: “Booze at the Movies IV: The Prequel

Another useless law from our Idaho Republicans. I think that everyone should continue to support Boise Classic Movies and bring a flask...welcome to the Boise Classic BYOB Movies...
