A Night of Great Heavy Blues

I had not attended an Extended Play Session at Alternate Root TV in what felt like a very long time (in reality it was only a month), and was excited to be seeing Trampled Under Foot on Monday night.

Another band with which I was familiar in name only, Kansas City-based TUF (as they are known) has won blues awards going back about twelve years so I am not sure how my radar missed them. Unfortunately, the band announced recently that they are not going to perform together after the end of this year but will each pursue separate careers. Darn!

Heavy Blues at an Extended Play Session

Sorry for the late notice – there’s an Extended Play Session at Alternate Root TV tonight!


Trampled Under Foot saw changes in their all-sibling lineup as a trio in 2014.  When brother Kris announced he was leaving the band, Danielle and Nick solicited long-time friend and fellow KC musician Jan Faircloth to join them on drums. Jan brought with him years of experience as a musician in the Kansas City blues scene and provided a fresh take on the band’s trademark sound. The addition of Jan inspired Trampled Under Foot to make other changes in their line up and the group added keyboardist Mike “Shinetop” Sedovic as an official member, turning the trio in to a 4-piece powerhouse blues band and adding a new dimension to their already stellar live performance that Trampled Under Foot will be bringing to The Alternate Root.

The Alternate Root is pleased to host a special night of filming featuring Trampled Under Foot on Monday, July 21, 2014. Doors are at 6PM and you can be included by contacting us via e-mail through

Located just 25 minutes from downtown Boston and free parking! How can you go wrong with that???
