THE GRAVY BOYS make ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC by adding a cup of country, a pinch of roots rock, a handful of honky-tonk, a splash of bluegrass, a dash of hobo folk, stirring vigorously, and letting it simmer 'til the pot bubbles over...
Your Gravy Boys had a fantastic time at MerleFest. We did not win the band competition (congratulations, Bear Wallow), but we had a great set, and enjoyed a great crowd of listeners and supporters. Thanks to all the friends and fans, old and new, who stopped by the Plaza stage to cheer us on.
We spent four great days at one of the best music festivals in the country, listening to great music, and meeting a lot of cool people. Some of our favorite performances included Hot Rize, Gibson Brothers, The Honey Dewdrops, The Two Man Gentleman Band, Big Sandy and the Fly Right Boys, Donna the Buffalo, the Kruger Brothers and the Avett Brothers.
Big thanks to all the hard-working volunteers who make it all run smoothly and make it all possible!
Our episode of "Song of the Mountains" aired on WUNC-TV, the North Carolina PBS station, on Sunday, November 23rd, at 6:00 pm. Thanks all for tuning in, and for showing your support on Facebook and Twitter and the like!
Song of the Mountains is syndicated to public broadcasters all over the country, and we've had a warm response from new friends and fans from see to shining sea.
