Album Notes
BLUE MUSEUM was founded after the 1990 run
of the cult musical, "Plan 9 From Outer Space", in which Erin McGrane (vocals, flute, whistles) sang the lead role; James Allen (vocals, guitar), Gregg Jackson (percussion) and others comprised the show's band. Gathering a bass player and another percussionist to build the drum jungle that has become its trademark, this experimentalist group later added violin. The current lineup is complimented by Bryan Pearce (bass, acoustic guitar, vocals), Betse Ellis (violin, mandolin, vocals), & Kenn Blurton (percussion). This orchestration is an experience that, in its diversity, attracts audiences of various musical tastes looking for an alternative to alternative music.

From the Human Observation Lab in 1990 to Harling's Upstairs, The Foundry, The Grand Emporium, the Hurricane and many others in 1995, BLUE MUSEUM continues to entertain in Kansas City, MO and the surrounding areas. They have performed by invitation at the 1993 &'94 Mississippi River Music Festival in St. Louis, MO as well as cities in Kansas, Iowa and Texas.

BLUE MUSEUM's first release, BREAKOUT (1993), quickly sold 1000 copies; the new CD, HANDFUL OF SAND, was released in October 1995, featuring an hour of original, global-folk-influenced-rock-based music. Their unforgettable live show fused all the variety of their music with their energetic whirlwind of melody, definitely danceable percussion and tight string section. Fans from all over loved this unstereotypical band, and still love their music.
