Biography

Baked Potato has been performing since 1991. Influences include Grateful Dead, Janes Addiction, Allman Brothers, Jayhawks, Pixies, Phish, Stones, Beatles, Bob Marley, and Zeppelin. 20 Years of performance has forged potato into skillful musicians and close friends. A deep understanding of lyric and songwriting sets Baked Potato apart from many groups, while their knowledge of balancing improvisation against compelling arrangements propels an engaging live performance. Understanding hours of "jamming on guitar solo's," can loose an audience, Potato creates compelling melodic textures through vocals, harmonies, and unique lyrical content. Creative improvisational solo's in the style of Garcia, Allman, Anastasio, and Page provide the counterpoint for the aforementioned textures. Pulsing rhythms, from understated accompaniment to tribal whirlwinds, set the table for clever hooks and inspired melodies. With performance experience from the Rockies to the east coast, Baked Potato is prepared to handle any performance environment.
