We met with a few of the fellas from the Boston electronic-pop band Bearstronaut – David Martineau and Nate Marsden at The Sinclair Kitchen.

Episode 104 - Old Crow Medicine Show

We were able to catch the boys of Old Crow Medicine Show at their Master Class at Berklee College of Music – and what we learned there is that they are not only a great band, but a great bunch of guys too.

It was evident that evening as well when they played for a recent Umbrella Community Arts Center event and had the crowd on their feet dancing the entire show.

These former buskers now have two Grammy Awards and their classic single, "Wagon Wheel" went Platinum in 2013 for selling over 1,000,000 copies. 

They received the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and they just released their latest album Volunteer.
