Live@5 - Jon Rauhouse - Thursday 5/17

Tune in to The Homestretch for a live performance at 5pm in Studio 2A from Jon Rauhouse. KXCI is presenting the Bloodshot Records CD release party for Jon's third album, Steel Guitar Heart Attack, Thursday night at Plush.

Jon Rauhouse, Arizona's legendary sideman, has lent his considerable talents on the the steel guitar and Hawaiian guitar to tours and recordings by Neko Case, Old 97's, Pine Valley Cosmonauts, Sally Timms, Kelly Hogan, Calexico, the Waco Brothers, and Giant Sand. Tommy Connell and Members of Calexico join Jon on Steel Guitar Heart Attack for a romp through the instrumental styles of western swing, jazz standards, Hawaiian music, classic country and lounge. Neko Case, Sally Timms, Kelly Hogan and Rachel Flotard stop by for guest vocal appearances as well, on this unique and eclectic release.

"After years as a respected sideman, Rauhouse has now stepped out and recorded an energetic mix of covers and originals that provides a much-needed elixir of brightness and wonder to a long somber alt-country crowd." - Pop Matters
