Ep 100 - 3/4 Of A Circle Around The Sun

This is a huge milestone episode for No Simple Road! No only is Drummer, Mark Levy from Circles Around The Sun our guest, but this is our 100th Episode! We start the show with a walk down memory lane and a bit of commentary on the past 99 trips followed by a 100th-episode-worthy conversation with Mark. We talk about how he balances success and humility, what it means to him to do better and be a better person, allowing energy to flow and the communion with the crowd, the beauty of Circles Around The Sun and how it has come together, and much, much, more!

Ep 99 - Making moves with the moves collective

Tim and Josh From The Moves Collective hung out with us for a little mid-week session! We shared some soup and smoke and talked about how their collective has transformed from gypsy-americana into what it is today, teaching through making music, the community surrounding jam music, what it means to be a person who decides to give it their all for the vibe, how pizza is Josh's favorite song, and a bunch more!

The Moves Collective are a funk heavy ameridelic jamband based in Ocean Beach, California. They have proven to turn heads by touring hard and sharing clubs, festival stages and amphitheaters all over the country with musical greats like Leftover Salmon, Hot Buttered Rum, Fruition, Midnight North, Melvin Seals and JGB, The Dustbowl Revival, Joe Marcinek Band among many more. Founded back in early 2014, The Moves quickly developed a reputation for timeless songwriting, high energy shows, exciting collaborations and constant touring (hucking). The band strives to remind everyone to 'Move in the Moment' through improvisation; sharing their unique stories, songs and experiences each night with each crowd.
