CL's Hal Horowitz Recommends: Those who remember the jammy approach of Atlanta band the Grapes from the 90s will want to explore the debut of Ten Ton Flood. A few Grapes veterans join with others for a set of new music that slots into Americana with introspective lyrics and flowing piano and guitar based melodies, more thoughtful and less Dead-like than the Grapes. Quality stuff and definitely worth a shot from gifted songwriters still at it.— HH
From the venue:Music Room. In early 1991, Steven Fink showed up on Romin Dawson’s doorstep with everything he owned, ready for a musical adventure. What transpired since then has been an ongoing, ever evolving, creative collaboration and friendship that continues to this day. Steven joined The Grapes - at the time an up and coming, pioneering Atlanta-based jam band that Romin co-founded - as a keyboard player, vocalist, and songwriter. Over the years, they wrote, performed, and toured the country together - sharing many life-changing experiences and passing many milestones along the way. Although they disbanded some time ago, The Grapes still reunite periodically for venue packing shows that have become much beloved and anticipated events for legions of devoted followers of all ages and walks of life. In the late summer of 2020, Steven and Romin began a dynamic new songwriting project called Ten Ton Flood - infused with all of the knowledge, wisdom, and love for life that can only come from living it to the fullest for decades. We hope you will enjoy it, share it, sing it, play it, dance to it, and become a part of our community.
