Hi everyone! We’re looking forward to 3 events this coming weekend…
Friday we’ll be making our debut at Waterville Valley, playing a 2pm après ski set and celebrating Mardi Gras weekend! It’s going to be a great party and we hope to see you there dancing your butt off!
And Saturday night we return to one of our favorite venues, Strange Brew Tavern in Manchester, NH for a 9pm show! We have some new material in the works that we’ll be debuting this weekend so come hang with us!
Finally on Sunday night, Andrew will be co-hosting The Cheap Seats radio show with Cat Wilson! Tune into 101.9FM at 6pm for 2 hours of killer tunage, featuring The Gravel Project and lots more awesome local music!
We had an incredible time on Friday night playing our CD release show at Johnny D’s! Thank you so much to all our fans, friends and family who came out! Without your support this wouldn’t all be possible and we are grateful for the ongoing support and interest! All in all the night was awesome, and we were psyched to see such a lively dance floor! We look forward to putting another date on the calendar at Johnny D’s, and in the meantime, keep an eye on our schedule and we hope to see you soon!
The new album is now available for sale right here on our website, on iTunes and CD Baby.
Our new self titled album is available now! Pick up your copy right here on our website or on ITunes… Or better yet come on down to Johnny D’s in Somerville tonight and pick up a signed hard copy!
Mark your calendar, everyone.. The CD release show is NEXT FRIDAY, February 7th, and posters are up all over town! There’s a show before us from 7pm – 9pm, so doors will open around 9:30 for The Gravel Project, and we’ll be starting at 10pm!
Well it was another amazing weekend up at Sugarloaf this year! Despite some pretty unfavorable ski conditions, (rain in January?!) we were happy to meet lots of awesome folks at The Widowmaker looking to party. It certainly helped make the weekend even GREATER that the Pats won. All in all we had some great shows, and debuted a couple new tunes including the new original, “Your Song” from the upcoming album, the Phish tunes “Stash” and “Chalkdust Torture,” and another killer Muddy Waters tune called “Want to be Loved.” We also featured Brandon Mayes on the percussion and backup vocals for the first time, and we loved the added dynamic. Thanks to everyone who came out to The Widowmaker! Thanks for bringing the energy, and making it another raging weekend!
The last 2 nights were a blast, and thanks to everyone who came out! Thursday night was our first show at The Woodstock Brewery in North Woodstock, and it was a great room, with awesome people and a fun vibe… and of course delicious microbrews! Nice to meet some new friends and also reconnect with some old ones.. We’ll be back to the brewery on March 13th!
Also had a great gig at Strange Brew Tavern in Manchester last night. Again, great to meet some new faces and see family and friends. We love the energy at Strange Brew, and it made for a really fun show last night. We’ll be back to ManchVegas on February 21, and will bring a batch of new CD’s after the 2/7/14 album release party at Johnny D’s!
Thanks to all for coming out on the Holiday Brews and Blues run. We are greatly appreciative of the continued support!
We had a great time in Glen, NH this past weekend for our show at The Parka. Thanks to all who came down, despite the weathermen putting the fear of God into everyone concerning driving on the snowy roads. We’ll be back at The Parka on 2/14 and 2/15, and will also be playing an Apres Ski gig at Ptarmigan Pub at Attitash the afternoon of 2/15. Hope to see everyone there!
Psyched about some new shows on the calendar for Winter 2014.. we’ll be back at Sugarloaf in January for a weekend of shows, and also just booked a bunch more dates at Red Parka Pub and Attitash base lodge. Stay tuned for more dates in ski country, as we have some more good things in the works!
Check out our Soundcloud player for another preview from the upcoming new album! “Blues for LA” was written 9 years ago… it’s been played at many shows, and recorded several times for our 2010 EP, “More Ways Than One,” our 2012 live album, “Live at The Red Parka Pub,” and for various demos. The EP version has even been played on a couple radio stations including WERS 88.9, 101.9 for The Cheap Seats, and various online radio stations. HOWEVER, I don’t think the song’s potential has ever been captured with any recording yet.. and that’s why we chose to include a new version on the upcoming new album. I’m psyched about this new version, as we’ve finally recorded it as I hear it in my head!
As a general update on the new album, John Keane has a few more tracks to mix, and then we’ll be mastering all the songs on August 19th with Bernie Grundman in Hollywood. Bernie is one of the most famous mastering engineers in music history, and has 37 grammys! Thirty freakin’ seven grammys! Feeling very honored to work with the legendary, John Keane for mixing and one of, if not the most highly regarded mastering engineer of all time, Bernie Grundman!
I know this whole process has taken a lot longer than I ever said it would, but you can’t rush quality! I think we’ll finally be ready to release the album in early October!
In the meantime, I hope y’all enjoy this brand new unmastered version of “Blues for LA.”
Check out the new studio version of “When I Get Back Home” on our Soundcloud player!! This is the first track off our upcoming self titled new album! John Keane, known for his work with Widespread Panic, REM, Jimmy Herring, and The Indigo Girls is mixing all the tracks. We’re targeting a late Summer release date, but here’s a sample of what’s to come. If you dig what you’re hearing, tell a friend about our band, and to “like” our facebook page. Thank you to all our fans and friends for helping spread the word about The Gravel Project!!
