Brothers Rio and Nik Mariucci have been playing together for 20 years, at times incorporating friends in their loud, proggy rock group. Bassist Josh Schuchard was a frequent collaborator over the years, but died unexpectedly in February. “We got the news on Super Bowl Sunday,” Rio Mariucci said. Though the loss has been difficult, he said the duo will be ready to play at festival time. “Josh was looking forward to playing Homegrown with us. It was always a fun time for him. He fucking loved Homegrown. He was an all-around good dude. We lost a pretty damn good one.”
