Trey Anastasio brought his band of renowned musicians with him to the Old National in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Friday to promote their new album, “Paper Wheels”. The new album, released three years after the last studio album, Traveler, added a breath of fresh air to the repertoire.

The stop in the tour in Indianapolis has become a regular for T.A.B, spanning almost two decades. It is a tradition celebrated by many midwest fans. This year fans were treated to their own T.A.B Cinco De Mayo which was cause for greater celebration! It did not take long once T.A.B took the stage for them to turn Cinco de Mayo into Cinco de Treyo. Continue reading Trey Anastasio Band – Cinco de Treyo in Indy!

Trey Anastasio Thursday — Click here to enter to win CDs, shirts & autographs from Trey, Jen Hartswick & Van Ghost


Over the coming weeks, the giveaways will be grand and therefore, we figured that we should get things underway in a large fashion in hopes that you will embrace us, share what we are doing and if nothing else, enter to win some free shit… some of which will make you yearn with hope for a win, while one is just downright ridiculous, to the point that we should probably see a shrink before announcing the item(s) included.


It all began on Wednesday, with Warren Wednesday, through ________ Monday, 10/22/12 there will be a contest announced.


Each contest will recognize some of our most favorite guitarists. In most cases, names will coincide with days of the week. In one, it won’t, but the fact that we were celebrating guitarists overtook the desire to be cute… and any Honest Tune celebration of guitarists will always include the person whose name simply doesn’t fit with a day.


One word to the wise before beginning: READ EVERYTHING AND FOLLOW ALL CONTEST RULES in today’s contest, whether it be Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Monday.


Each contest will have its own set of requirements for entry, with some being only slightly different and one being entirely different. So please, for your sake, pay attention to everything you fill out and/or complete all steps in regards to what you are asked to do in order for your entry to be valid*.

How to enter


This is a social media contest***. Therefore, there will be 2 steps that you will have to complete so that your entry will be valid. There will also be an optional third step that will gain you a bonus entry, should you opt to fulfill that obligation.


1) Log into your Facebook and/or Twitter account(s)


2) Be sure that you are a “fan” of Honest Tune Magazine (NOT JUST A FRIEND OF HONEST TUNE) on Facebook and/or a “follower” of @HonestTuneMag on Twitter.

3) Be sure that you are a fan* of Trey Anastasio, Jennifer Hartswick and Van Ghost on Facebook and/or a follower of @Trey Anastasio and @iamvanghost on Twitter.


*IMPORTANT: At last count, there were six Trey Anastasio “friend” pages and three “fan” pages on Facebook. Be sure that you are a fan of the page that is linked above. Further, being Jennifer Hartswick’s friend, in real life or on Facebook, is a beautiful thing. However, in this case it won’t amount to much. Please be sure that you are a “fan” of the page linked above. The same goes for Twitter, where there are several Trey pages as well.


4) This is probably the most important part of the entry process and definitely the most often incorrectly done art. In the past there have been times that we have been somewhat lax. However, in fairness to everyone, this will definitely not be one of those times because as you will see over the next five days, the stakes are too high for this series of contests for us to stray from the rules and regs.

Please carefully review the next two sections and complete one or both of them.

Soulive’s Bowlive III, 2/29, 3/1, 3/3 & 3/10/12

Bowlive III
Brooklyn Bowl
New York City, NY
February 1, March 1, 3 & 10, 2012



Over the past three years, New York city funk residents, better known as Royal Family Records kings, Soulive, have hosted an annual gathering. What began as one more catchy way to incorporate the band’s name into something has grown into a destination event for fans (including kids for one day at least) from across the country, many of whom take in portions or the full dose of the yearly two week residence at The Big Apple’s Brooklyn Bowl.

What differentiates it from most musical pilgrimages, festivals and the like is that fans flock to the event for one reason… they have literally no clue who will be there, other than host band, Soulive, of course.

Sure, it is a safe bet that standard New York City funksters and Bowl regulars will show up, but in years’ past the guest list has delved much deeper than that, including some of the most notorious of the notoriety list. This year would be no different.

With all things now said and done, here is a brief look at the marquee / unexpected guests from the night’s that Honest Tune’s Vernon Webb (February 29, March 1 & 3) and Andrew Blackstein (March 10) were on the scene at the now famed Royal Family affair.
