World Tour, A Month of Nectar
Greetings, Grift fans! Lots going on here in Jonesville, so let's get right to it: Peter and Jeff are safely home after a tremendously fun and productive European tour as The Sweet Remains. They joined Brian Chartrand to lay down some glorious three-part harmonies all throughout Germany, Switzerland, and The Czech Republic. Good news! There is a deep hunger for and appreciation of folk-rock akoustiche from USA across the pond. And Jeff now has a sweet cajon with a kick drum pedal so The Grift is primed and ready for some guerilla akoustiche shows of their own! Clint made a similar trip with Brian "The Gypsy" Chartrand a few years back, and they released a sweet recording from the tour, Live in Hamburg. Dig it!
But yes, The Grift and friends are ripping it up Stateside this spring and summer: In fact, this month is a great month for live music at Nectars right here in Burlington, VT! (well, it's always a great time for live music at Nectars, that's what they do! and they do it so well...) but this month in particular. Honeywell (Clint, Peter and Russ Lawton) is playing a weekly residency at Nectars, and you can catch the buzz every Wednesday at 9:30! But May is slipping away! Don't delay!
And The Grift also returns to the hallowed Nectars stage on Thursday, May 16! It's been awhile, folks, and the band has a nice barrel full of new songs to share. don't miss it!
And while we're on the Nectars train (gravy train? gravy fries train?) here's a sneak preview of things to come: Thursdays this July will feature a DoJo residency at Nectars. oh, what??! That's right, Clint, Jeff, Peter (the brothers Do) and special guests will be busting out their blazing ninja blüegrass covers of 80s classics. If ya don't know, now ya know.
Finally, a VERY exciting show to announce: Clint Bierman and The Necessary Means (feat. Peter, Jeff, Leon and others) will be rocking the opening night of Burlington's Discover Jazz Festival. May 31st at the top Church Street. It's going to be stellar!
