House Party: The Apache Relay & Mumford & Sons

Congratulations to The Apache Relay on their #1 showing in Deli Magazine’s fan poll for Nashville bands (#7 on the overall poll and it’s interesting to note that the Jury was oddly, literally out for this terrific little group. But I digress). To celebrate, they threw a house party at guitar player Mike Harris’s Granny White Pike home and major celeb sightings abounded with members of Mumford & Sons and Cadillac Sky showing up to perform, and a late night jam with actor Jake Gyllenhaall made the gossip websites, lol.

Look and listen for The Apache Relay to show up on Lightning 100’s airwaves on March 11 and be a part of our next Anniversary month (yeah, that’s March) celebration. And keep an eye out for their new album, American Nomad, due to arrive in April.
