Mud Road Superstars

Album Notes
Don't be fooled by Yellow No. 5's 2004 Midwest Entertainment Music Association nomination for Best Country Band. Most who follow the band don't think of Yellow No. 5 as a "country" band. Yellow No. 5 is a band from the Midwest who doesn't try to hide it. Yellow No. 5 takes from the likes of Wilco, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Johnny Cash, and The Old 97's, adds a touch of bluegrass, and the stories of life in the Heartland to create its sound and songs. Based just outside of Kansas City, Yellow No. 5 spends a great deal of its time producing and recording songs in their home studio, but will venture out for shows that mean something, and have played throughout the Midwest. You might also catch them on the Kansas City radio station, 90.1 FM KKFI, or one of many internet radio stations.

Yellow No. 5 is...
Jamie McCannon: banjo, guitar, vocals
Brett McCoy: drums, vocals
Chad Nichol: bass, vocals
David Stropes: vocals, guitar, mandolin
Matthew Stropes: guitar, mandolin, harmonica, vocals

Short and sweet: Buy this CD!
After doing website "sounds like" search for Old 97s, I decided to take a chance on this CD, and I couldn't be happier with what has become a staple in my CD player. Don't sell these guys short; they are the real deal. Clever songwriting, accomplished musicianship, and a true sense of fun (when was the last time you said that after listening to a Wilco disc?) make me hope this CD finds the audience it deserves.
