Uhmm. Cool? Yeah, cool! I love it! How can you go wrong with a cute little monkey, popcorn and a retro pic. Who is Juicebox? From their website:

"Born out of love for soul, boogaloo and R&B, Juicebox does more than keep alive the traditions that inspire it. These are the sounds of the late sixties but rendered by musicians with the impulse of another generation. Juicebox is an authentic soul band with a respect for roots but blessed with the invention that defined them..
Juicebox, in other words, has not stood still. Neither have their audiences who have been kicking the rug off the dance floor. “When the deaf hear and the lame dance we know we are getting something right” says founder, tenor sax and flute player Rob Berends.

"Juicebox’s debut album, Popcorn 69, offers 14 contemporary covers of classic tracks from the original popcorn era."

Gregg Gordon - Gigart

I learned a little bit about a great music poster illustrator named Gregg Gordon on the Runaway Dinosaur blog.

Gregg has founded Gigart in 1996 and since that time has been illustrating and designing music related materials for an impressive list of record companies and bands.

This week I'm featuring a poster that Gregg illustrated for one of his favorite bands, "Ween." Here's a quote from Gregg that I pulled from his interview with Runaway Dinosaur:
"The latest concert posters I created are for Ween. I have been a huge fan of Ween forever and always wanted to design a poster for them. I got that chance back in 2003. I did a poster for Ween for the Canopy Club show in Urbana, IL. I went all out and tried to illustrate as many references to their lyrics as I could. That poster was the very first silk screened poster I had ever done, and it couldn’t have been for a better band."
You can view more of Gregg's work on his website.
