In the summer of 1976, 3 of the original members of Telluride, the legendary Birmingham rock band, lived and played together in B’ham, along with their friend Mike Estep. Rick Carter, William “Moose” Harrell, Roger Bailey and Mike played a few gigs around Birmingham and Vestavia Hills that summer as “Highway”, and in August, Mike went back to school in Tuscaloosa. Meanwhile, Rick (guitar and vocals), Moose (guitar and vocals) and Roger (keyboards and vocals) went on to establish Telluride in the winter of 1976-77. Forty-five years later, Telluride is still rockin’, playing 6-8 dates a year, when the guys can fit a show in their busy schedules. On Saturday, May 29, Highway will reunite with Mike (guitar and vocals), for a rare acoustic performance at LuLu’s Gulf Shores from 12-1:45. It’s always fun when these four buddies get together, please join us at LuLuPalooza!!

Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band’s onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. From major festival stages around the world to leading a parade down the street, this is a group of professional musicians who’ve found their passion, and are living a dream where everyone’s welcome.
Second line brass and Cuban-Caribbean rhythms meld with R&B, soul, rock, and hip-hop beats in high-energy performances that turn every show into a celebration. New Orleans is influence itself, the unparalleled free and easy city weaving its way into track after track of original scores that make up a single definition of sound, which Flow Tribe has dubbed “backbone-cracking music.”
K.C. O’Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Nick Solnick (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) are native New Orleanians and high school pals who’ve been writing music and playing live shows since the band’s inception in 2004. Post graduation, they went their separate ways, but after Katrina, each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a community that’s stronger than ever.
In 2017 Flow Tribe teamed up with legendary Hip Hop producer Mannie Fresh (Lil Wayne, Big Tymers) to create the album “BOSS”. The album reached #55 on the Billboard R&B charts and #5 on the Relix/Jambands.com chart reflecting the diversity of sound represented on the album. After relentless touring, Flow Tribe completed building a state of the art studio in New Orleans called Downman Sounds. They are now putting the finishing touches on a 2-part EP coming out in late 2018 and 2019.
