Sunday Morning Music | The Milk Carton Kids

Good morning friends. I am back with some more Sunday morning music for you. This is a folk duo called The Milk Carton Kids. I first heard about them through a concert I watched on Showtime called Another Day, Another Time. It was music from and based around the movie Inside Llewyn Davis. The concert was produced by T-Bone Burnette and featured The Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, Marcus Mumford, and a ton of other awesome people. The entire film is amazing and worth checking out. 

This is a clip from that film of The Milk Carton Kids. I was blown away the first time I heard them. They have such a beautiful sound and the harmonies are so tight that it is hard to tell who is singing what part. I dare you to watch this song and not be moved at least a little bit. 

Sunday Morning Music: Then Came the Morning

This is some of the most exciting music we have heard in a long time. We absolutely love these guys. We love the gospel, country, and rock influences, and we love the heart these guys put in to this music. Their new album is fantastic and they are now on the top of my "To See Live" list. Check it out and let us know what you think. 

Bad Bones IV

About 5 years ago, a friend of so many people in Daytona Beach Florida, "Bad Bones" Bruce, was killed riding his bike in an area that had no sidewalk. Bruce was one of the coolest, most adventurous and life-loving guys around. He influenced so many of my friends for the better and to lose him was nothing short of a tragedy. 

In memory of his death, and to help raise money to build a sidewalk in the area where he was killed, some of my great friends started this event called Bad Bones. It is a simple idea: we find a place in the woods, get some good food and drink, and invite a bunch of local bands to come out and play loud music into the night. It is exactly the kind of thing Bruce would of loved and it is great to see his influence effecting community and change even after his death. 

The last set of photos was obviously taken by my wife as you can see yours truly playing bass with our band Brothers. These pictures are especially important to me because this was our last night in Florida. We hit the road for Colorado the next morning. This was a joyous and terribly sad night all at the same time. I will always cherish these memories.
