    Imminent War With Music Row: Galaz Calls All "Roots" Bands Home To Fatherland.

    Muddy Roots Records is ordering all of its officials to fly home any bands living or touring abroad and within U.S. territories amid heightened tensions over the prospect of global music distribution war, it has been claimed.

    Independent touring artists and high-ranking figures are said to have received a warning from Promoter In Chief, Galaz to bring their loved-ones home to the ‘Fatherland’, according to local media. “Fatherland” meaning the home of which American roots music primarily comes from, The South.

    Galaz stated “It’s time to come home. It’s time for everyone to come back to the field. We must stand together. The Muddy Roots homecoming is Sep 1-4, 2017.”
    Attendees will each obtain free camping and access to showers with purchase of ticket to support the pilgrimage back. MUDDY ROOTS 2017 TICKETS HERE

    It comes after Galaz cancelled a planned visit to Music Row amid a furious row over Muddy Root’s role in the music industry and just days after it emerged Galaz had moved scores of independent bands across the Belgian and Brazilian borders.

    The plan is based on a world wide strategy of uniting the underground music scenes to strengthen independent artist’s revenue streams. Basically, to keep bands on the road touring and playing music while the mainstream media and music companies monopolize the industry.

    Formidable music industry leader T-Bone Burnett has also warned that the world is at a ‘dangerous point’ due to rising tensions between Music Row and the consumer.

    (Sept. 21, 2016 – Source: Anna Webber/Getty Images North America)

    At a key note address during the recent Americana Fest, T-Bone said:

    “We live in a time in which artists are being stampeded from one bad deal to another worse deal. No one asks the artists. We are told to get good at marketing. I have to say- and I think I probably speak for every musician here- that I didn’t start playing music because I sought, or thought it would lead to, a career in marketing.

    And, as we are being told that, our work is being commoditised- the price of music is being driven down to zero.” and “So the iTopians have controlled the medium and the message for a generation now. And they are making a complete hash of things.”

    We have reason to believe that T-Bone Burnett would support Galaz and his band of merry Muddy Roots attendees.

    Muddy Roots Acquires MoonRunners Fest (Chicago)

    Muddy Roots Records will take the reins on the 5th annual MoonRunners Fest and keep the momentum of the event moving forward with expected growth. Founded in 2013 by Jahshie P (Outlaw Radio Chicago), in partnership with Reggie’s Rock Club to represent the underground Country, Americana, Deep Blues, Folk to Punk Rock music scenes in the area.

    “I have been friends with Jason and Muddy Roots for years now, and I have always admired the business ethic. Bringing them aboard for MoonRunners will only make our future brighter and full of new options” – Jahshie P

    Muddy Roots had served as inspiration for this event so it only makes sense to join forces in show of support. In July of 2016 Muddy Roots provided on site merchandising through it’s promotional items division “Power Merch.” Festival t-shirts were printed and many of the band’s shirts and records were sold as an added service. ( An opportunity for growth was identified as well as a need for more support. Jahshie P will stay on to book and assist in running the event as usual while Muddy Roots will add some strength to the core as well as promotions with the new ownership.

    MoonRunners 5 will take place May 5-6, 2017. The indoor event will continue to be on 2 stages over both days. Booking for this event will begin the first week of August. Presales to be announced at a later date.
