Last week, we did a bit of profiling on Fauxgrass – one of the three bands that will be joining us this weekend (Saturday, September 12!) at the tasting room for The Crush.
Today, we’re kicking off the short work week with a look at one of the hottest bands in Michigan, if not the country, Graham Parsons & The Go Rounds! These delightful fellows are going to be joining us at The Crush as well, and you don’t want to miss one more opportunity to see them in a local, intimate setting before the rest of the world learns all about what we’ve been enjoying here in the Michigan area for a while now.
As it says on their official website :
Kalamazoo’s favorite suns. High energy twang-rock and jelly-roll.
The Go Rounds are a furious live act and progressive recording unit, fueled by the history of its diverse lineup and a collaborative spirit injected into everything from songwriting to arranging. Equally inspired by their record collections as the beauty of the Great Lakes State, the band explores soul music, baroque folk, art rock, country and classic rock n’ roll.
And that pretty much nails it.
I can attest from personal experience that these guys absolutely rock every single second on stage – they’ve been a highlight of many festival trips this summer for us, including a tremendously fun set at Hoxeyville a couple weekends ago.
You can listen to some of their music on their official site as well, appropriately enough under the “Music” tab.
There’s also an interview covering the (seriously excellent) new album “don’t go not changing”, which is available now here.
You’ll find them at The Crush this weekend, and I highly recommend that you don’t miss this!
