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!
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.
