The Grizzly Band
Perhaps The Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre or People with Chairs up Their Noses aren’t playing, but The Grizzly Band has definitely caught my attention.
While The Grizzly Band earns its name straight from chords of vocalist Chad Grizzly, there is a lot more to like than just the unique growl of Grizzly. The band, from Austin, Texas, is inspired by Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Cash, and melds that with a more traditional southern rock sound.
When getting to know The Grizzly Band I would definitely start with the single “Train Wreck,” from their Reverbnation site.
Of course once you are there, you’ll be staying to listen to the rest. Try “Hammer Down” and then the others.
But if you want to experience some serious variety, get down to some of their patented Whiskey Punk (their self-prescribed genre). Hit this song.
Dan Adler was raised in Southern California to a mom and dad, one of whom appreciated Creedence and left wing anti-war politics. By the teenage years, Dan became obsessed with Black Sabbath, listening to the same seven albums repeatedly for 5 years. During this time, his favorite concert experience was seeing Metallica open for a bunch of bands that no longer exist and winning the 1st ever Santa Cruz Air Guitar contest. After several years in Africa listening and dancing to Chimurenga music, Dan returned to have the two best children in the world, one of whom spends a lot of time at concerts with him. What a lucky dad!
