Be Sure to Tune In to The Broadcast!


This is a Broadcast! About The Broadcast! Asheville’s outstanding quintet is heading south after their two New Year’s shows (with Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band), with eight dates in Florida and another half dozen through the Carolinas and Tennessee.


The Broadcast are Caitlin Krisko, vocals; Aaron Austin, guitar; E’Lon Jordan-Dunlap, bass; Tyler Housholder, percussion; and Jaze Uries, drums. We first met up with this outstanding band at Suwannee Springfest last March, where we heard them — twice!

The Broadcast got my fest off to a rollicking start with a wonderful and genre-defying mix of music. Caitlyn Krisko had a superb night (even more impressive Friday) preforming great originals and excellent covers of “After Midnight,” Nina Simone’s “Funkier Than a Mosquito’s Tweeter” and a bouncy “With a Little Help from My Friends.” The band is touring in advance of their new album, From the Horizon.

That was the very first performance we heard there on Thursday. But then on Friday:

The Broadcast was up again. And so was Grandpa’s Cough Medicine. What’s a guy to do? Generally, I tried to split sets, and this time was as good as it could have been. I chose The Broadcast first. There was a nice tune about “The Dial on Your Radio,” and then they blew open Aretha’s “Rock Steady.” Caitlin Krisko was, for me, one of the three best vocalists at this fest. She delivered two great sets with her bandmates, and do not ignore the rhythm section of E’Lon Jordan-Dunlap and Jaze Uries. They played “Don’t Waste It” from most recent album; a new one is due out later this year.
