January 29th
Trampled Under Foot is excited to introduce a couple of new faces to the band in 2014.   It is with mixed emotion that TUF announce original drummer (and brother to Nick & Danielle), Kris Schnebelen has decided to take 2014 off to pursue other interests.  His replacement, Jan Faircloth is no stranger to the Kansas City blues scene though.  As co-founder of the popular KC blues-rock outfit Levee Town, Jan brings years of experience to the TUF family.
The other new member of TUF should be no stranger to fans.  After years of playing with the band as a special guest, Mike “Shinetop” Sedovic will join TUF on the keyboard.  The addition of Shinetop will add a new dimension to the already stellar live performance TUF has become known for.
Please welcome both Jan and Shinetop to the TUF family and join us for a new chapter in the history of TUF.

      I`ve seen the new band twice and if you haven`t seen TUF in this format you`re in for a treat.

    Can`t wait to see your band with a keyboardist. Only one stop in New England at the end of the Summer just ain`t enough. Please plug something in for us. Good luck to the band and Kris.
