The acclaimed documentary film, "Sleepy LaBeef Rides Again," which was selected for the 2013 Nashville Film Festival and the 2014 Little Rock Film Festival, tells the compelling story of one of Arkansas' favorite sons, and the living embodiment of Americana Music. The DVD and soundtrack CD are available right here at the Earwave store. The film captures his heart and soul in a dynamic live performance backed by a quartet of Nashville's finest players, Kenny Vaughan on guitar, Rick Lonow on drums, Gene Dunlap on keys, and Dave Pomeroy on bass. Dave produced the film, which was directed by Seth Pomeroy, and which includes 4 documentary inserts illuminating the incredible story of the greatest artist you ALMOST never heard of. Acclaimed roots music journalist Peter Guralnick makes an appearance in the film, calling Sleepy "one of the greatest live performers of this or any era." The soundtrack is also available here at www.earwavemusic.com.
Both Three Ring Circle CDs are available here as well. This high powered acoustic instrumental trio features Dave collaborating with world-renowned acoustic music masters Rob Ickes on Dobro and Andy Leftwich on mandolin and fiddle. From futuristic hoedowns to down home funk, and hot jazz, these boys pick it like you've never heard before! No Depression magazine said "...Melding sweet lyricism, audacious virtuosity and greasy funk in extended takes on both originals and well-chosen covers, Three Ring Circle's debut is both bold and engrossing in a way that's likely to take listeners by surprise."
