Black Ridge Road is an acoustic bluegrass band formed in early 2011 featuring Doug Buchanan, Mike Kleiss, Melissa Treatch, Roy Brittin.

The Corn Desert Ramblers are an acoustic band out of Champaign-Urbana featuring Dan Andree – Fiddle, Dustin Norder – Mandolin, Sam Payne – Guitar, Lee Roberts – Bass, Dave Soucek – banjo, Bob Watson – Dobro. Their inspiration stems from the fathers of Bluegrass (Bill, Earl, Lester, Ralph…) as well as a plethora of other creative acoustic artists (Tim O’Brien, John Hartford, Doc Watson, Sam Bush…) and everything in between. The group launches from the traditional Bluegrass repertoire, expanding into the realms of gypsy jazz, blues, and “newgrass” soundscapes. Playing all around the Champaign/Urbana area and into the greater midwest, The Corn Desert Ramblers are a rousing “Traditional Newgrass” band pickin’ and grinnin’ the only way they know how–Chambana style.
