Bob Dylan Tribute Shows

Old American Junk presents A Tribute to Bob Dylan

In 1965, American songwriter Bob Dylan released two of the 20th century’s most groundbreaking and important albums. Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited, often referred to as the era where “Dylan goes electric”. Both albums have proven to be highly influential for artists for half a century.

This June, the Wisconsin-based musical project  Old American Junk will recreate both albums and play them in their entirety over the course of a four day period across Wisconsin.  As a 50 year anniversary celebration, the albums will be played front to back in the track order of their release, with the band committing themselves to the interpretation of Dylan’s work in the most authentic and genuine manner possible, Old American Junk founder and producer Shane Hardwicke cites Dylan’s albums as being profoundly influential and important in their lyrical prowess, artistic innovation and musical sensibility.

Good to Be Alive

cover170x170-GoodOld American Junk is happy to announce the release of our latest project “Good To Be Alive” on December 21st, 2014. This is a 5 song EP recorded in Wisconsin and São Paulo during the past year. You can stream the entire album right here on out site with the Soundcloud music player. If you would like to make it a permanent part of your collection, you can order the album via iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and/or countless other physical and digital outlets. You can also stream it on Spotify and if we get 1 million plays we will be able to afford a set of guitar strings.

More interestingly, you can also write us an email and request a physical copy of the CD. We will then send you a copy via mail with a personalized, hand-written letter of appreciation for your support and interest. We will happily do this until then we run out of postage money. Serious.

It’s been a great year for Old American Junk. Along with the EP and the accompanying film, we also have our music inTouchTunes jukeboxes all across the Western Hemisphere, we’ve played a lot of great new venues and we’ve already begun work on a new album. We appreciate your interest and support. Enjoy the new release.
