Eric Krasno & Chapter 2 Open Northeast Run
In his current Jambands.com interview, Eric Krasno outlines the origins of his new band, Chapter 2. The quartet consists of Kraz, Adam Deitch, Nigel Hall and Louis Cato. Chapter 2 will release an album later this year, following Krasnos own solo release. Krasno heaps particular praise upon Cato, noting, Id heard him play drums, but Id never heard him play bass. So he came into the studio and just blew us away on bass, and then picked up a guitar and blew us away on guitar, and then started playing drums, and scared Deitch out of the room. He plays everything: he also plays trombone on the album in the horn section.
This evening Chapter 2 will open a three show run, which carry the group from Burlingtons Club Metronome to Mountain Jam on Friday and then to New York Citys Sullivan Hall on Saturday. Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and Oteil Burbridge are among the musicians who have guested with Chapter 2 at the bands recent gigs.
