Since 1991, the celebratory jam noises of Columbus, OH’s Ekoostik Hookah has produced them among the finest Midwestern rings to emerge from the neo-hippie picture from the 1990s. Starting performing at regional open mic evenings, frontman/keyboardist Dave Katz, guitarist Steve Sweney, bassist Cliff Starbuck, and guitarist/vocalist John Mullins chose that a profession in music will be economically trying however enriching because that they had a special interest for this all. The group was immediately noticed at an area party, later attaining studio time and energy to record their debut, Under Total Sail, in 1991. In 1993, drummer Eric Lanese became a member of the group, percussionist John Polansky became a member of in 1995, and vocalist/songwriter Ed McGee finished the Ekoostik Hookah lineup another year. Through the entire ’90s, Ekoostik Hookah trudged through the entire U.S., playing to countless displays while molding their grassroots/jazz/blues organic noises. A second record, which was entitled Dubbabuddah (1994), concentrated more in the band’s extended jams and sonic grooves, the 1996 discharge from the band’s live record Ekoostik Hookah was even more of a precise depiction of the relentless rock and roll & move impeccability, the growl of executing before an market, and the energy they had being a live music group. It’s their laid-back character, the mellow atmospheric body encased in each melody, which makes Ekoostik Hookah as appealing as they are already. Studio attempts are obviously another arranged for the group, but it is the down-home great time that slashes the hook each and every time. Another LP, Where in fact the Areas Grow Green, was released in 1998 and another live dual disc, Sharp within the Flats, adopted a year later on.
