Seeing Bloodkin live is an experiment in human nature. The band can take an empty dance floor and fill it after a few songs, although some of the loud instrumentation drowns out both Hutchens' voice and his wonderful lyrics. According to fans though, that shouldn't be a deterrent, because-- to coin a phrase-- the band truly rocks. Backyard Tire Fire, who emerge from a fertile Midwest music scene that's introduced America to some of its greatest new rock bands over the last decade, fully embrace the best characteristics of their generation's genre-bending, influence-melding approach to creating music. The band features Ed Anderson (vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, percussion), Matt Anderson (bass, vocals, percussion) and Tim Kramp (drums, percussion, vocals).
