MP3 Yellow No. 5 - Mud Road Superstars
Music that sounds like it''s from the Midwest because it is. Skillful blend of Americana and Rock, with a twinge of old school country.

ROCK: Americana, COUNTRY: Country Rock
Don''t be fooled by Yellow No. 5''s 2004 Midwest Entertainment Music Association nomination for Best Country Band. Most who follow the band don''t think of Yellow No. 5 as a "country" band. Yellow No. 5 is a band from the Midwest who doesn''t try to hide it. Yellow No. 5 takes from the likes of Wilco, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Johnny Cash, and The Old 97''s, adds a touch of bluegrass, and the stories of life in the Heartland to create its sound and songs. Based just outside of Kansas City, Yellow No. 5 spends a great deal of its time producing and recording songs in their home studio, but will venture out for shows that mean something, and have played throughout the Midwest. You might also catch them on the Kansas City radio station, 90.1 FM KKFI, or one of many internet radio stations.
