im ryan. 21. web designer. sioux city. will be making my way out to ames in a few weeks.
03-04-2005, 04:40 PM
Good idea, I'm Mike. 19. College Student. West Des Moines. Travel to Iowa City and Ames fairly regularly. I'm sure we'll meet up at a show or something before Waka.
03-07-2005, 05:41 PM
Good idea! I am Jason, 25 and live in Carlisle and work for Wells Fargo (damn the man!) in West Des Moines. I am trying to move to Colorado currently but will be helping here until (if) that happens. Glad to meet you all!
Tim in Ames here. I get out to a decent number of shows in Ames, and a some shows in Des Moines too. Let me know if you are headed up this way. I'd be interested in tagteaming any promo ideas anyone has and would enjoy the chance to meet my fellow street teamers if we're headed to any of the same shows. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any show plans.

I live in Iowa City, 21 yrs of age. Student at the Unviersity of Iowa. Host a improvisational music show 7-8:30pm on Tuesdays. Work at the Green Room, so you might already know/recognize me. Looking forward to this festival for sure.
03-11-2005, 09:14 PM
Just thought it would be a good idea to list off the upcoming Iowa shows that I know of and see if anyone wants to meet up. I may not be at all of these, but hopefully at least 2 Iowa street team members will be. Hope we can all meet up and do a little team promotion. (There are so many shows for Des Moines and Iowa City I'll post the major ones, check Jambase (http://jambase.com) for the rest

03-12-2005, 02:06 PM
I guess I will be seeing you at Lonnie tonight, should be a real good show. Also FYI Signal Path is now opening for New Monsoon, should be a HOT show.
03-13-2005, 11:58 AM

03-15-2005, 02:07 PM
Hi...I'm Jen from Cedar Rapids. I think I may know the cat from IC, how long have you worked at the Green Room?
I wanted to take a moment and say what's shakin'? I'm totally ready to get this started...Have any of you received the promo digs yet? I'm looking forward to having something to show...but word of mouth is spreading like wild fire. I know I will be at as many shows as I can possibly handle, over the next couple of months. I'm really looking forward to Yonder Mountain playing at the IMU ballroom, April 28...I love the strings. I'm looking forward to sharing groove and creating the scene.
I'm a collective individual who enjoys all perspectives...when we get out there and get truly started...I hope it's cool if I share what's working for me. I hope to have my eyes opened, by the shared experiences, forsure! I will try and keep everyone posted as to the shows I'm hitting up!
03-15-2005, 10:00 PM
I have been working at The Green Room for roughly 8 months now, great gig. Seen a lot of great music because of it, worked the Lonnie Brooks show last Saturday and it was a blast to get to hang out with a blues legend. We have some hot show coming up too. Look out for:
THE DREW EMMITT BAND - 3/24/2005
New Monsoon/Signal Path- 3/30/2005
MELVIN SPARKS - 3/31/2005
OTEIL BURBRIDGE AND THE PEACEMAKERS- 4/2/2005
SHANTI GROOVE - 4/7/2005
I will be handing out flyers at most of these, except for Melvin and Oteil, as I will be out in Utah seeing some Cheese! So I will take some flyers out to Morman land. Really looking forward to seeing Drew in such a small club, interviewed him last Friday and said he redid Out in the Woods for his new all string group.
hey everyone! I'm Jill, 22 from Iowa City... If anyone is planning to go to any shows here I'd be willing to meet up..
Jim, did you get your promo stuff yet? I've been out of town for spring break, so hopefully it'll be there when I get back. Also, how was Lonnie Brooks?
03-16-2005, 07:38 PM

4/13 The Big Wu& Floodplane@Vauldville Mews@9 $8/advance $10/Day of
4/16 Charlie Hunter @Vauldville Mews@8 $18/advance $23/Day of
I will promote at all these shows I would imagine. Might also do signal path in Ia City. See you there!
I will be at Ari Hest (who is playing Wakarusa) at Peoples, Ames, March 28th. drop me a line at email@example.com if you're going to be there.
A little more obscure, Larry Myer is playing a solo acoustic show in Nevada, IA (small town 7 miles east of Ames). Don't know why this show is happening, but I will be there on April 2nd. I've lived in Ames a lot of years, and I've never gone to Nevada to see a show.
03-16-2005, 11:06 PM
Jill, I did get my promo pack, and Lonnie was great! Really holds a presence in room. Hope break is treating you well.
03-16-2005, 11:59 PM
hello iowa crew! nice to see veryone pumped! i like the teaser on the front page of the waka site! displays who plays on wut days!
03-19-2005, 09:06 AM
Hey all you Iowans. Just wanted to let you know that you should check out the Des Moines Music Coalition's website desmoinesmc.com. It has a great music calendar & has been working really hard (& successfully) to bring in more great music to the area. It has been involved in bringing in MOE, Charlie Hunter Trio, The Wailers (Hotel Fort Des Moines in April) and many more. Check it out.
Any of you from Des Moines, let me know if you have received posters & we can coordinate where we hang them.
thanks for the info! I had no idea the Wailers were playing in Des Moines... hopefully I'll be able to make it there. How far is Des Moines from Iowa City anyway? A couple hours??
03-22-2005, 07:57 PM
who all has flyers? i got mine! ive already hit up a ton of places in town. will be hitting up more. also attempting to plan a trip to ames soon. and will be in omaha on this saturday.
03-24-2005, 06:46 PM
Hey guys what's goin on... my name is Alaine & I'm 20 years old from Cedar Rapids & I am a student at Kirkwood. My uncle is helping run this show so I thought I'd help out. I got my fliers not too long ago so I'm excited!
03-29-2005, 03:26 PM
hey guys. I'm Dawn 29 from Pella. Used to live in Des Moines and Iowa City. Hope to see you guys at Waka and at some of the iowa shows.
Anyone go last weekend to floodplane/babers neighbors/warped10 last weekend?
had to leave early, but it was pretty good.
Has anyone heard New Monsoon play before? They're going to be at The Green Room in Iowa City tommorrow night with Signal Path, and I was just wondering how they sound.
Also, Melvin Sparks is playing on Thursday night. My boyfriend says he has heard good things about him, but has never heard him play either.
Anyone know what's up with these bands???
03-30-2005, 09:13 AM

Hotel Fort Des Moines - Des Moines ,IA
Sunday April 17,2005
Doors open at 8 pm. Show at 9 pm.
Must be 18 + to attend show.
sux that its a later show on a sunday. i live in siux city and work in the morning. i jus tthink i mite be sick that day. ;)
Hey! Does anyone know if/when Shanti Groove and Cornmeal are playing in Iowa City?
On Jambase it used to say that it they're both playing at the Green Room this Thursday (the 7th).
The Green Room's website says Shanti Groove is playing (without Cornmeal) on the 7th.
And now Jambase says that Shanti Groove is playing there on the 14th.
What's going on?????
Jim, do you know what's up?
If not, I guess I\"ll just have to call The Green Room.....
04-06-2005, 02:22 PM
Shant Groove cancelled due to Panic being here this weekend in Chicago. They are playing an after hours Del show though, I think the 14th is right, so look out for me and Wakarusa forms.
I'm really excited about that Del McCoury show....never seen them before. And I'll definately hit up Shanti Groove afterwards.
Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend! Went disc golfing yesterday and might go camping tonight!! Lovin the weather!
anyone else going to be in Iowa City tonight for Del McCoury or Shanti Groove???? Should be a good time!
04-15-2005, 02:16 PM
Jill and I handed out flyers at Del last night, not as many young people as I hoped, but we still got a few handed out. Also handed flyers out at Shanti Groove last night as well.
Jim: were you still at Shanti Groove when some of the boys from Del showed up??? Rita convinced them to play a few songs with the band. It was bad ass! The mandolin, bass, and banjo player all sat in. The guys from Shanti Groove had the cheesiest smiles on their faces --- they had to feel so good having guys from Del McCoury show up and then jump on stage with them! Sure made my night!!! I love the mandolin player from Del McCoury!
04-16-2005, 06:58 PM
No I wasnt left early because I had to go to Chicago to get my dog! I am really glad to have him back up here, but it sucks that I missed that. I heard they went on around 1:30, really sweet! Know I dont feel so bad telling people \"you never know what could happen\" as I handed out some flyers for that and Wakarusa!
04-17-2005, 12:39 PM
Im off to Des Moines in a few hours. Wailers tongiht at 9. take it ez kiddies.
Yonder Mountain String Band is playing this Thursday in Iowa City.. Anyone else going???
Hey all you Iowa folk.
Hope that all is well in your neighborhood.
I'm thinking about going to YMSB, but I'm not crazy about the IMU. The Wailers sounded great in Davenport last week. Hope that you all have the chance to check them out. What else is going on these days? Anyone headed to Chi-town for the weekend?
And while I'm here, I was wondering if y'all had any bright ideas for promoting WAKA besides at your typical jam show....
looking forward to the summer! peace, Carrie
04-26-2005, 09:33 AM
coco- u were at the wailers?!?!?!
im going to see the band Rilo Kiley in omaha on the 12th. deff a diff crowd, but ill be promoting Wakarusa there for sure.
I was at the Wailers show, coco stayed home :)
04-26-2005, 07:13 PM
I will def be at yonder with tons of flyers
04-26-2005, 08:14 PM
u were at the show? coco wut? im lost?!?!?!??!
Floodplane will be playing at Dillinger's in Mason City this Saturday(4/30). They usually get a really good turn out there.
Check them out -
Feeling kinda sorry for myself (I'm good at that sometimes :) ) I have a test tommorrow morning that I haven't had the chance to study for yet... so I am missing Yonder Mountain String Band right now. Would have studied earlier, but I had an oral exam in Spanish earlier today that I'd been practicing for all week... Stopped in John's Grocery on the way home from my night class and saw a bunch of people buying liquor to sneak into the show. What was I buying? Trash bags, t.p., and some Ben and Jerry's ice-cream... woohoo :wink:
On the brighter side of things, I will be going to Exodus Music Festival this weekend, which is just outside of Iowa City. Good local bands playing, camping, alcohol, and friends.... should be a good time. Anyone else going? Jim, are you???
04-28-2005, 08:54 PM
just a heads up:
every 4th of July weekend, Sioux City has a free daylong music festival called Saturday in the Park.
Rumors are abound that Robert Randolph & the Family Band may be playing....
The show falls on the 2nd this year.
and RRFB is in Minneapolis on the 3rd...... only makes sense....
04-29-2005, 12:01 PM
Yonder really threw down last night, sold out show. Good times. There was definitly someone else there handing out flyers as well for waka.
Had a great time at Exodus Music Festival this weekend. Passed out a bunch of flyers and found out that Pizza on Dubuque will be vending at Wakarusa this year. The owner said he was really looking forward to the festival. Mmmm... P.O.D. !!!!
05-03-2005, 10:55 AM
I will be at Jerry Joseph this Thursday handing out flyers, see y'all there.
05-06-2005, 08:08 PM
Jerry tore it up! Second set was rocking. The Dear Prudence jam was def. a highlight.
Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was fantastic.
ZoeJam, check out next year if ya can.
Is it true that we're getting more stuff in the mail soon?
What's on the plate for this weekend? Friday CornMeal Iowa City Green Room for me ...mmmmm. cornmeal......
05-18-2005, 02:14 AM
I know it's been a while, but I'm back to share a cucial bit of info for all us iowa folks. I don't know how many of you have been to Bob's Briar Patch before but it is one of the chillest venues for live music in iowa. It is about 20 minutes south of Des Moines and features camping and mostly local live music during the summer. The first bob's fest this year will be on the 4th of june, which would be a great time to get together before Waka and get to know one another. Basicly, anyone who is within driving distance of Des Moines ought to check it out. I'll post more as the event draws near, but remember to keep your calenders free.
05-18-2005, 09:38 AM
if there is sum decent music, ill b there. (and if m not broke)
05-18-2005, 04:33 PM
Bob usually does a good job about boking music. He wants to get Dark Star Orchestra this year or next, but til then it's mostly local bands like floodplane, cornmeal, Shbabo, etc. The stage is actually the back porch of Bob's house, so don't expect 50 ft. speaker stacks. But he has a good tract of land and plenty of space to camp and dance, and I would say it is one of the more intimate locals to enjoy live music. Admitance is usually $10 so i'm sure most of us can afford it. Not a bad price for live music all night and the fun of camping with your buds.
05-18-2005, 05:49 PM
hav this bob guy look into getting Big Metal Rooster.
they are playing at Waka. and they are from near by (lawrence) just a few hour drive.
these boys rock so hard u dont even kno.
hav him get ahold of them via www.bigmetalrooster.com
05-25-2005, 09:09 AM
I'm sure you are all well aware, but just in case:
Umphrey's will be playing Nitefall on the River at Simon Estes Amphitheatre on June 2. Tickets are $8 and the show starts at 7 with Floodplane. I'll be doing some major flyer distribution at this one!
05-25-2005, 05:54 PM
i will be flyering too! as long as my cold is gone by then anyway.
05-28-2005, 01:55 AM
So, for a bit of an update concerning the upcoming Bob's Briar Patch show on the 4th of june... It looks like Mr. Baber's Neighbors is headlining so to speak. Also appearing... Rob Lumbard, Mike and Amy Finders Band, Trampled By Turtles, and many more. Cost is $10 which includes camping for the night, so bring your tents and make sure they are still in shape for Wakarusa. Info about the event can be found Here (http://www.jambase.com/search.asp?eventID=311376).
As far as other upcoming shows are concerned. Umphrey's McGee and Floodplane, 2 Waka bands will be preforming 6/2 at Simon Estes. Floodplane and The Samples(Also at Waka) will be at Simon Estes on the 10th. Info about Simon estes and Nitefall on the River can be found Here (http://www.ci.des-moines.ia.us/departments/pr/nitefall.htm) Tickets are $8. Baber's Neighbors will play in the East Village on the 3rd, as a part of the \"East Village Blooms and Blues fest\" following a preformance by Fat Tuesday and the Greasefire Horns at the State Historical Building. For information concerning this and many other great blues events in Central Iowa visit The Central Iowa Blues Society (http://www.cibs.org/news_text.htm)
05-28-2005, 02:22 PM
Hi Folks! I'm with CPJS doing the Own Grown Stage. I live in KC now, but am from Ottumwa, IA. Come on over to our stage and say Hi. We've got alot of Iowa folks, and Floodplane is playing our stage.
I realize Umphrey's is tonight, but is anyone else hitting up Willie Waldman Project at the Green Room in Iowa City? If you haven't seen them before you should definately check it out!
06-04-2005, 12:55 PM
Just leaving for the briar patch right now, hope to see some of you guys out there, just a little motivation... there will be New Belgium Beer for sale. We made a trip to Omaha yesterday and stocked up so any new belgium brew you want is available,
06-06-2005, 11:17 AM
How was bob's? I skipped cause of the giant storm. Something about Bob's nights brings the crazy weather to iowa eh?
06-07-2005, 09:06 AM
Not as bad as last year where there was a tornado, but yeah the weather was a little uncooperative. Still, It was a fun time, a little water never hurt anyone. Plenty of frolicing in the rain and dancing naked in the mud.
