The Roundup Musicfest




As part of the mid-'90s revival of roots-rock, the Wallflowers held a special connection to one of the original inspirations: vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Jakob Dylan. Though he is the son of a legend, Jakob's similarities to his father are occasional -- in fact, the Wallflowers are more influenced by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers than original '60s folk-rock, though lyrically, Jakob remains a close companion to the original Dylan.

Born in 1970, Jakob Dylan was raised in Los Angeles by his mother, Sara Lowndes, after his parents' divorce in 1977. He studied at private schools in L.A. and New York, and decided to follow in his father's footsteps by the late '80s. He formed the Wallflowers with guitarist Tobi Miller, keyboard player Rami Jaffee, bassist Barrie Maguire, and drummer Peter Yanowitz and signed to Virgin. Released in August 1992, the Wallflowers' self-titled debut album sold poorly, and Virgin soon dropped the band. Undaunted, Dylan assembled a new Wallflowers -- guitarist Michael Ward, bassist Greg Richling, and drummer Mario Calire -- keeping only Jaffee. The group signed to Interscope and recorded its second album with producer T-Bone Burnett, a longtime friend of the Dylan family. Bringing Down the Horse was released in May 1996, and was a big seller throughout 1997, producing the alternative radio hit "6th Avenue Heartache, and the singles "One Headlight" and "The Difference". "One Headlight" won Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal.

Settling down from the rush of success, the Wallflowers rightfully took a long four-year break from recording. The new millennium sparked new creativity, and the Wallflowers returned in October 2000 to release the excellent Breach. The album went largely ignored, leading to the more mainstream Red Letter Days the following year. After a two-year hiatus the band returned with Rebel, Sweetheart in 2005. The album peaked at 40 on the Billboard charts and the group didn't support the record with an extensive tour. The Wallflowers split from Interscope in 2006 and the following year the group played shows without keyboardist Jaffee, who had left the band, signaling a steady decline in activity for the group. Jakob Dylan released his solo debut Seeing Things in 2008 but the Wallflowers stayed active, releasing a compilation called Collected: 1996-2005 in 2009 and supporting it with a tour.

Dylan released another solo album, Women And Country, in 2010 and early in 2012 he announced the Wallflowers were returning to active status by recording a new album with a new lineup featuring a returning Jaffee, bassist Greg Richling, guitarist Stuart Mathis (who joined in the wake of Jaffee's departure in 2007), and drummer Jack Irons, who previously played with Pearl Jam and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. This reunited Wallflowers released Glad All Over in the fall of 2012.

Train is a multi-GRAMMY and Billboard award-winning band from San Francisco, CA that has had 14 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 list since the release of their debut self-titled album. Train's climb to the top began in San Francisco in 1994, as the original 5-member band tenaciously built a loyal following, leading up to their own self-titled debut album, released by Columbia in 1998. The tumbling wordplay of "Meet Virginia" gave them their first unlikely radio hit and 2001’s Drops Of Jupiter broke them to multi-platinum status thanks to the double-GRAMMY award-winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40, and snaring the Best Rock Song GRAMMY award by beating out Coldplay and two U2 songs.

The group won another GRAMMY award in 2011 for their global hit “Hey Soul Sister,” the #1 best-selling smash and most downloaded single of 2010, from their multi-platinum album Save Me, San Francisco. Next was 2012's California 37, which launched the hit "Drive By" reaching the Top 10 in 13 countries. They've sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, more than 30 million tracks, with multiple platinum/gold citations, including 3 GRAMMY awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors. In 2014 Bulletproof Picasso—the band’s 7th studio album—debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned rave reviews.

Most recently, the band released their 8th studio album, a girl a bottle a boat, via Columbia Records which spawned the lead single, “Play That Song,” hitting Top 5 on the iTunes chart, Top 10 at Hot AC radio, and charting at Adult Top 40.

Train frontman, Pat Monahan, partakes in other ventures outside of music with his newly launched Drops of Jupiter® wine portfolio. Proceeds from the wine support Family House, a San Francisco charity that supports families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Train’s 2016 project, Does Led Zeppelin II, a cover album in tribute of their favorite band saw 100% of the band’s proceeds going to Family House.

Brothers Tom and Chris Hooper met Kevin Kane in 1977 during their teens in Kelowna, British Columbia. Their first band was a punk combo called Kill Pigs which played faster than the singer could sing. In April of 1983, after putting together a one-off show as cover band Honda Civic, the trio decided to work together. From the Hooper family garage they began rehearsals and gained enough confidence to open for acts in Seattle and Vancouver as the newly christened Grapes Of Wrath (from the classic movie of the same name).

By raising money at flea markets and garage sales they were able to record 4 songs with up-and-coming producer/engineer Greg Reely in July and August 1984. Unbeknownst to the band, a cassette recording of the material was passed along to Terry McBride of the newly formed Nettwerk Records in Vancouver, which led to the band being signed and releasing the tracks as a self-titled EP in November 1984. The band played a farewell gig in hometown Kelowna, packed up Tom's station wagon and the Grapes Of Wrath moved to Vancouver.

In late summer of 1985, Nettwerk released the first album September Bowl Of Green, which dented college and alternative radio. Their first two videos "Misunderstanding" and "A Dream (About You)" were heavily rotated by MUCHMusic. This attention led to Nettwerk's negotiations with Capitol Records for a distribution deal and the band returned to the studio in May 1986 to remix "Misunderstanding" and "Love Comes Around" with Tom Cochrane. Cochrane was sufficiently impressed enough to produce the band's sophomore effort Treehouse which was released in October 1987, resulting in their first gold album for sales in Canada and yielding a minor hit with the single "Peace of Mind" and fan favourite, "Backward Town". The band’s next Album, Now And Again, was produced in Woodstock, New York, where the band lived in isolation for the first half of 1989. Now and Again, was the band's big breakthrough. The singles "All The Things I Wasn't" and then "What Was Going Through My Head" propelled the album to platinum status and soon the band went from playing bars to theaters and touring Europe, opening for Lloyd Cole. Their Canadian tour to support this album was also notable for its opening act, a then-emerging singer/songwriter named Sarah McLachlan.

In February 1991, the band traveled to London and spent 3 weeks mixing at Abbey Road studios. The Album spawned the hit singles "I Am Here" (#8, and peaking at #27 on Billboard Modern Rock Tracks in the U.S.) and "You May Be Right" (#7), again selling platinum and allowing the band to again tour Europe. Musical and personal differences brought about the band's demise in 1992 with the departure of Kevin Kane. The Grapes Of Wrath's final show was Halloween 1992 in Vancouver.
