RECIPE FOR HUBBARD STEW:
Take one part jazz. Add one part jam band. Bring to a boil. Add in a dash of acid jazz, a sprinkling of delta blues, and a large dose of psychedelia - simmer until all the ingredients form a cohesive sound - serve hot.
Formed in October 2010, Hubbard Stew is a Columbus, Ohio based band comprised of 6 seasoned musicians that has performed over 150 shows throughout Ohio and Indiana. The Stew performs original compositions along with their own takes on obscure covers from classic bop jazz to downtempo acid jazz & pieces of the jam band scene. Creativity and improvisation play a heavy role in each performance with no two performances being exactly alike, taking chances and exploring new territory is all part of the performance.
