The No Grass Limit album titled “Originals” is all songs written by Chuck and Sandi Millar. Songs about love like “Broken Hearted Blues”, “One More Chance” and “Me and You” to a song about loss such as “A Letter to My Savior” and even a couple of good murder tunes “Shackles and Heart of Stone, going from one extreme to the next this album takes you on a journey. There is even a tribute song to the Father of Bluegrass music, Bill Monroe, "Good Ole Days of Bill Monroe" Here is a little history on the song: The original version was written with 45 Bill Monroe songs titles. No Grass Limit needed a radio version so it got cut back from about 9 minutes to 3 minutes and 20 seconds. “We are thrilled with the great response on this song. The main thing is bluegrassers can relate to this song. They recognize the Bill Monroe song titles and maybe that triggers a memory of playing or hearing one of his songs at a jam or on a stage. Everybody in bluegrass knows at least one Bill Monroe song even if they don’t know it is a Bill Monroe song. I used to sing his songs around the campfire jams when I first got into bluegrass and didn’t even know they were his songs.” says Sandi Millar, guitarist and lead singer for the band.

Vaughn Asselstine started her musical journey when she was eight years old, learning to tickle the ivories. From there she moved on to squeezing the accordion and strumming the guitar. During the early 70s she played with the Alive and Trucking Theater Company and along the way to becoming a college-educated computer geek she snuck in some study of jazz and music theory.  Vaughn is also a rhythm tap dancer who danced for many years with Keane Sense of Rhythm, performed onstage at the Chicago Human Rhythm Project and taught adult rhythm tap classes. Next she dabbled in West African drumming, taking up the djembe under the tutelage of Kenne Thomas.  A few years ago Vaughn started playing the bass. She fell in love with the unique combination of rhythm and melody that the bass brings as the foundation of many types of music. She has performed with multiple old-time, bluegrass, Cajun and jazz groups in Minneapolis and is enthusiastic about playing with all of them.


Above all, the members of No Grass Limit value the people they meet and the special times had by all at every festival and event they been to or played.  Let's help make new memories together with No Grass Limit at their CD Release Party Friday, January 9th at Dulono’s in Mpls.
