Excerpts from 'Sieze the Hay' review in No Depression Americana and Roots: 'Gregg Daigle is equally at home whether flatpicking an acoustic guitar, coaxing bluesy licks from an electric, navigating the tight fretboard spaces of a mandolin, or clawing the banjo.' 'Gregg has honed his playing and songwriting chops in a variety of musical contexts -- bluegrass, folk, rock, jazz -- and Seize the Hay provides a vehicle for blending those elements into a tasty southwest musical stew. Daigle originally hails from Massachusetts, but tunes like 'It's a Wild Life (Out West) and 'Going Up North' celebrate life lived in more wide open spaces.' 'Americana standards like 'Columbus Stockade Blues' and 'Walking Boss' (the former featuring keyboardist Chris Plourde on vocals) remain true to their roots while being infused by the band's energy and more contemporary influences; in the best tradition of groups like The Band and the Grateful Dead, The Gregg Daigle Band pays tribute to roots music history while leaving it's own forward-looking imprint.' 'Instrumentals like 'Twenty-Nine Wishes' and 'River Dogs' provide ample opportunity for the band to stretch out -- tastefully, it should be said... The latter tune -- composition, really -- is a particular highlight of the album, merging a banjo-propelled Allman Brothers-approved groove with a Tony Rice Backwaters-era jazz-grass aesthetic.' -Ben Bonin, No Depression Americana and Roots Music This is the second release from The Gregg Daigle Band. It features a whole new rhythm section that offers a more jazzy feel that provides the music with more opportunity to fuse Gregg's styles and influences. The songwriting is stronger and the banjo picking is off the hook, especially in 'Tango in Durango' and 'Riverside'. The stories told are about the humanity of the characters described. A brief listen will easily expose the listener to Gregg's bluegrass roots, as well as his studies in blues and jazz. Gregg remembers the first time he heard bluegrass music blaring over the loudspeakers in a warehouse where he picked, packed and shipped for a record company in the early 90's. He immediately searched out a banjo and learned to play it while performing in the subways and squares of Boston, Mass. Already with an accomplished background in blues and classical guitar, Gregg was able to merge his love and mastery of those styles of music. 'Seize the Hay' is the next step forward.
