Catch Trout Steak Revival live and you can't help but notice the band's gift to thrive in the moment. Sparked by jam sessions with close friends during backpacking trips and backyard parties, pill the band formed in 2009. Amongst the cool clear streams and lakes in the Midwest Great Lakes region, where trout prosper, the band began to spawn and take flight. Colorado’s flourishing rootsy based mountain music scene beckoned and became home to Trout Steak Revival, where the band honed their sound.

Band members Steve Foltz (Mandolin and Guitar), Will Koster (Dobro, Guitar), Casey Houlihan (Upright Bass), Travis McNamara (Banjo), Bevin Foley (Fiddle) follow in the bluegrass tradition, with each member of the band composing original tunes and adding harmonies. In just a few short years the band has built a steady and spirited fan base across Colorado and beyond. Finalists at 2012 Rockygrass Band Competition (finishing a respectable 3rd), the band plays to packed houses of dancing crowds across Colorado’s Front Range and the Midwest. Enthusiastically moving forward, Trout Steak Revival released their second studio album "Flight" in October 2012.

Recorded in Evergreen Colorado, "Flight" was engineered and mixed by William Koster and mastered by Dave Wilton. Six well crafted originals showcase the quintets songwriting competence, visiting themes of love, loss, settling into a new home, and other meditations, wrapped in thoughtful harmonies and conversation between the band members inspired & lulling strings. Other tracks include a soft grassy version of Swedish singer-songwriter ‘The Tallest Man on Earth' (aka Kristian Matsson) song "Where Do My Bluebird Fly,” two fresh re-worked traditionals; the sassy "Greasy Coat" and a spritely version of "Darling Corey.” Harry Tuft of Denver’s Folklore Society remarked; “I'm reminded of early Grateful Dead, with a smattering of Old Crow Medicine Show thrown in. The selections range from bluegrass, through a sort of jug band swing, to some more sensitive songs – a nice variety. Look for a fine future for this young group.”
