Muskellunge Soldier’s Joy

And after nearly 40 years of being cousins, they played together on stage for the first time (rod Sural and Nolan Mckelvey).


Muskellunge – Determined (Green Gold) B/w Happy – 45 Single

A Side: Determined (Green Gold)
B Side: Happy
OXO Records, OXO 004

Muskellunge were only active for a couple of years in the early 90s, and I think their recorded output only consisted of two singles and a track on a compilation single… at least that’s all I’m aware of. The band consisted of two ex-members from The Funseekers (John Crozier and Eric Tretbar) along with bassist Benji Boyd and vocalist/guitarist Rebecca Fritz. I remember seeing them play a handful of gigs at the 7Th Street Entry back in the day, usually as an opener. One thing I always remembered from their gigs was that while I enjoyed the music, I could never understand a word that Rebecca was singing. Listening to this single was a good reminder that I still can’t figure out what she’s singing. But I guess that’s part of their charm.

Besides, any band named after the state fish of Wisconsin gets points in my book.

Muskellunge Bluegrass ‘First Rite Of Spring’ PIP 2010

Is it “rite” or “ride?” Nolan McKelvey says he wrote this after Flagstaff’s hard winter of 2009-10. Muskellunge Bluegrass performed at Pickin’ In the Pines Bluegrass & Acoustic Music Festival, held Sep 17-19, 2010, at the Pine Mt. Amphitheater in Flagstaff, AZ, organized by Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music (FFOTM).

Muskellunge Bluegrass consists of Nolan McKelvey (Vocals/Guitar), Aaron Tyler (Mandolin/Vocals), Tim Hogan (Bass/Vocals), and Frank Dedera (Banjo), performing original and traditional bluegrass music.
