Yamn, DYNOHUNTER & Home 3.6.15

I arrived in time to catch the eclectic sounds of Home. The full name of the group seems to be "The Band Home," I would think, because the name "Home" has been claimed by a musical acts in both America and the UK. The teddy bear-like Jeff Prah immediately commands your attention as he belts out the notes. Calling their music a “Folkadelic Jamgrass Explosion,” Home has an intoxicating, inviting sound that pulls the listener in quickly. Singer and percussionist, Precious Hill, took her turn at the microphone to end the set. This band has been at it since around 2009, and as far as I can tell they are coming off of an extended hiatus. They have played all over the country including Summer Camp and 10k Lakes. So I hope this is the start of a "renovation" of sorts for Home. I will say Home puts on a fascinating show and I hope they continue to play together.
Yamn took the stage just after 11 PM and played until just before bar close. This band has definitely evolved from their early days. They have developed a hybrid between livetronica and progressive rock. Yamn began with the electro-funk dance tune, “Warpath.”
