12/1/21 - NYE show and Apres Ski shows announced! Planning for 2022 shows, tours and music releases (across multiple projects) underway...
Apologies that we have been off the radar on updates for a little while. This time of the year always seems so busy with the Holidays and such. We have been busy with some commercial songwriting, some shows with various projects, and Jeff is fresh off a European Tour. Remember to take a look at his adventures at Brian Chartrand's tour blog.
On the news front, we are excited for an Apres Ski gig on December 18th in Stratton mountain and a NYE show at Jay Peak to ring in '22. Both shows will feature our good friend Josh Panda, and should be a great time. Tickets will be limited for NYE, and can be purchased by clicking the poster to the right. You can also visit our gigs page for more information on all of our live performances.
We hope everyone has a great Holiday season, and we are VERY excited for 2022. We hope spend some serious time Grifting around Vermont and New England - we hope you will join us as an accomplice for some of our "great capers" in a town near you!
8/25/21 - G22B was a success, streaming video available! New shows on the calendar in September...
This time around, we hired the professionals over at PhotoGraphic TV to capture the concert. Boy, they sure didn't disappoint. You can purchase ($10) or rent ($5) the entire concert HERE. Or, just click the picture to the right.
It's honestly better than any of us could have imagined, and a really fun video that we believe did a great job of capturing the day. Thanks to all who helped and came out!
And finally, the guys have some shows coming up, both as The Grift as well as some other projects. Check out the updated calendar here.

7/14/2021 - Tickets on sale for G22B!
When things opened up again, we played a G Series event called G22A in June. We had so much fun that we decided to fit one more G Series concert in this year with less capacity restrictions. So here we are, OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCING G22B! G22B will be a part of the 2021 Laughing Eagle Music Summer Concert Series; Proudly sponsored by Lawson's Finest Liquids. Come join us for a day of Lawson's Finest Liquids, food trucks, a lawn-game-fueled hang session and some great music on the speakers. And then... a couple of sets of original music by The Grift that will span their catalog of more than two decades. Ok, one or two covers might slip in, you never know. Visit the official G22B webpage for information. We hope you come hang out with us for a late summer evening in Vermont at our last G Series event of the 22nd year of The Grift!
6/25/2021 - Sip of Sunshine, The Song is available for streaming today! G22B concert date is confirmed for August 20th, announcement coming soon...
Wow, time goes quickly, that's for sure. We are busy over at Grift HQ with a few new updates. First and foremost, The Grift, in collaboration with Lawson's Finest Liquids have released Sip of Sunshine, The Song (feat. Soule Monde). Take a look at this video made from the recording sessions for this song about one of the best beers on the planet. We can't thank Lawson's Finest Liquids enough for their ongoing support and collaboration on two of our favorite things, music and beer. Sip of Sunshine, The Song, is now available on all of the streaming platforms, or you can download it from us as well (all proceeds go to buying beer).
In other news, we have confirmed that we will be participating in another event for the 2021 Summer Music Concert Series by Laughing Eagle Productions - proudly sponsored by (who else?!?) Lawson's Finest Liquids. We are going to call this event G22B, and there will be fewer capacity restrictions. We will send out an official announcement in the coming weeks with ticket information, but there will be a special 48 hour pre-sale for people on our mailing list. Sign up above (and tell your friends:) if you want to be a part of that pre-sale. Until then, check out our photo page for links to a photo gallery from G22B. As usual, Benjamin D. Bloom Photography did another great job capturing this amazing event. Thanks again to all who attended and helped out, and we hope to see you in August for another rocking time at an awesome outdoor venue.
