Since forming in 2007, Holy Ghost Tent Revival -- a 6 piece rock band from Greensboro, NC -- has played roughly 150 dates per year, released 4 albums, and gained a solid reputation for their eclectic sound and passionate performances. They can be found bringing their blend of Dixieland, Folk and horn-driven Rock and Roll all over the USA, headlining festivals and respected venues year-round.
Their third studio album, Sweat Like the Old Days, continues to push genre boundaries and reveals a group of songwriters producing mature, thoughtful lyrics atop lush arrangements. It is a wholly original sound that the band is eager to share with new audiences. With the release of this record, and the beginnings of a new one already underway, there is no doubt a bright and enduring future is on the horizon.
Toy Soldiers a lively & hard-working band formed in 2007 by frontman Ron Gallo, started out as just a duo, fluctuated between a cast of upwards of 12 players, then eventually settled into a solid 5-piece who love a good song and dance with no pretense or wall between the band and audience (as members often times ending up in the crowd).
Dietrich Strause owns one of the finer collections of songs on the Boston music scene. Strause's creations come at you first with their simple charm, a lot of which resides in his gentle persona and friendly attitude. It's hard not to like this kid. And this kid is as mature and tested as any of his local songwriting elders.
