"Advertisement" warning[edit]

So, I rewrote the article and took out all the stuff that was really blatant advertising. Can someone delete the advertisement thing? Because I do not know how. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Quezaquacktl (talkcontribs) 16:45, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

"Bluegrass" band??[edit]

Hmm, I'm not so sure that they count as bluegrass, really. Very firmly alt-country, from my exposure. Almost none of their songs follow standard bluegrass progressions; I'd call them alt-rock if the banjo and mandolin players played guitars. --Dgianotti (talk) 21:08, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

I'd say a very progressive bluegrass/americana, but you a right, not at all traditional bluegrass. However recently it seems a fairly large group of bands playing "newgrass" stuff are now just being called bluegrass. Beach drifter (talk) 00:42, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
I went ahead and changed it to progressive. Beach drifter (talk) 00:44, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
It now says they are an "alternative band," which is a complete mislabeling. What was wrong with the term "bluegrass" again? Is their style so different as to make this blasphemy? Because it is a seriously useful and descriptive term. Also, the rest of this article needs to lose the "cut their teeth" euphamisms and the fan-boy review tone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.137.14.245 (talk) 05:39, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Relevance? Not likely.[edit]

I have an issue with whether or not this band is relevant. I can find nothing that backs up the claim of a #1 Bluegrass Album on the Billboard charts. What I did find was a single chart position for May 1, 2010 that indicates that the album "Palomino" reached #46 on the Independent Albums chart, where it remained for ONE week before dropping out of the Top 100, never to be seen again. While some of the festivals listed in the article are indeed big festivals, it's not any great accomplishment for a completely unknown band to get a token "local opener" slot. I fear that the author is closely associated with the band, and is embellishing more than a little.

Further, the Billboard website has no reviews, and no album information. It's kind of hard to believe that a #1 album in any category wouldn't have a single review, no album information, and no information about the band's personnel lineup. I think this one needs to go away until this band actually does something. Osirisascending (talk) 18:30, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

  • I've found 716 news articles involving the band, and even a #46 charting qualifies under WP:BAND. Please try to limit your tagging and commentary to articles which clearly fall within the criteria. Ironholds (talk) 00:04, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Title of Band[edit]

It would be interesting to know where the title came from. I never heard of a turtle stampede, perhaps that is why.1archie99 (talk) 18:44, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
