One Eleven Heavy Redux

Back in episode 30, I spoke with James Toth and Nick Maiato of the then new band, One Eleven Heavy. Now, two albums and some tours later, the rest of the band comes on. Dan Brown, Hans Chew, Jake Morris (respectively: bass, keys, & drums) talk about their new live CD, share a few road stories, discuss improvisation onstage, and The Grateful Dead.

One Eleven Heavy has two studio albums: “Everything’s Better” from 2018 (available here), and 2019’s “Desire Path” (available here). Their latest release, “Live At Jam Castle” is due out on May 1 and you can grab it from The playing is a looser and the jams a bit longer and you can hear the good times being had.
