Poetically-laden folk world-infused funk filled the KUAC Alaska Live studios when St. Animal hit the airwaves. St. Animal recently formed but the members are from many popular bands from the Fairbanks music scene both past and present. Many selections feature trumpet accented beats, fiddle chops, electric guitar complete with effects and bass and drums. All original songs written by the band feature St. Animal's musical prowess.

Ukulele Russ is an entertainer at heart with Alaska on his mind when writing songs. Ukulele Russ performs solo often but enjoys having the trio together, Dr. Jones from Talkeetna on percussion and Pat "The Rat" from Anchorage on electric bass. Between the three of them, a gig somewhere along the Parks Highway is just a short trip from home. This session is all original songs performed by Ukulele Russ and The Parks Highway Band.

From hard-driving to slow-lilting ballads, Eel House puts their stamp on every song. Eric Barker - keyboard and vocals, Chazz Gist - electric bass, Susie Hallinan - fiddle and viola, Alisa Williams - drums, and Margaret Ransdell-Green - vocals and percussion, give this dance band their unique sound. Animals, not just eels, seem to play a huge part in the naming and story lines for Eel House.


Emma Hill writes songs that tell stories of Alaskans and beyond. Bryan Daste is Emma's one-man-back-up band, on pedal steel, banjo and vocals seamlessly interwoven into the fabric of Emma's songs. This duo travels relentlessly and has the chops to show for it.
