Grascals Appear on Jay Leno

THE GRASCALS recently met one of their entertainment heroes when they appeared on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Hollywood icon Robert DeNiro was also a guest, along with Sherri Shepherd (of The View).

“As if it wasn’t a big enough thrill to perform on The Tonight Show, and believe me, it was a huge thrill,” Terry Eldredge says, “ then we found out that Robert DeNiro would be on the same show. Robert DeNiro, man; ‘The Deer Hunter,’ ‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Taxi Driver.’ Now, that’s Hollywood!”

The two-time Academy Award winner, DeNiro, met with the band backstage and took time for a photo.

As musical guest, The Grascals closed the show with “Mystery Train” from their album Life Finds A Way (Mountain Home Music). The project is nominated for Best Bluegrass Album in the upcoming 55th annual Grammy Awards which will air on CBS February 10th.

“The Tonight Show experience was definitely a career highlight,” Danny Roberts says. “Everyone involved in that show is top-notch. Jay Leno is gracious and welcoming and that crew made us feel right at home. They all work hard and have a good time, which is the way we like to do it.”

The Grascals are nominated for Instrumental Group of the Year in the upcoming SPBGMA Awards to be held in Nashville. Soon after, they’ll make another appearance on The Grand Ole Opry as part of their busy 2013 schedule.

The Grascals to Perform at Smithsonian

Nashville, TN — Multi-award-winning band, The Grascals, will perform at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian on January 21st at 7:00 p.m. for a celebration of the Inauguration of the President of the United States.

The Native Nations Inaugural Ball will feature music, dancing and native cuisine. Funds raised will support the educational programs of the National Museum of the American Indian.

Located on the National Mall in Washington D.C., the museum is one of three facilities operated by The National Museum of the American Indian. It offers exhibition galleries and spaces for performances, lectures and symposia, research, and education.

Master of Ceremony for the event is Native American actor, Chaske Spencer, who has appeared in numerous films including The Twilight Saga, as werewolf Sam Uley. Other performers include the Murray Porter Band, Martha Redbone, Gabriel Ayala and Gerry Barrett.

Jamie Johnson, founding member of The Grascals, is a proud member of the Aamjiwnaang (Chippewa) First Nation of Sarnia, Ontario, where his cousin, Christopher Plain, serves as tribal chief.

“I am proud of my Native American ancestry and so honored for the Grascals to be a part of the Inaugural events,” Johnson says. “Native communities, past and present, are rich in cultural history and diversity. It is poignant for Native Nations to join together in celebrating the inauguration of our 44th President.”

The Grascals are nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album for Life Finds A Way (Mountain Home Music). The Grammy Awards air on CBS February 10th.
