Chestnut Grove / Bio

Chestnut Grove is a Roots Rock and Blues band from an area in rural Pennsylvania, about one hour from Philadelphia, known as Perkiomenville. The band plays music that is inspired by art and sounds from as early as renaissance folk artists and performers , the Roaring 20's itself, 1940's and 50's Beat Poets; the Delta Blues breakout, the 60's Counter Culture, all the way through to todays Macintosh Computers and Big City Lights. Chestnut Grove released there self-produced EP "Old Tin Road" in May of 2013. The record features original songs like "Danger Man" which captures a natural rhythm and blues sound and mindful lyrical balance. The 2013 release also features heavier psychedelic songs like "Johnny Guitar" and "Slide Tide" filled with fuzzy guitar riffs and incredible breakdowns. Summer 2013 the band performed at music festivals like Opple Topple, Mountain Folk and Roots Festival (JibberJazzproductions), and Boogie in The Bungalow just to name a few with bands like The Felice Brothers, The Ryan Montblaeu Band, Yarn, Aqueous, The Dirk Quinn Band, The Tumbling Bones and many more. The bands sophomore EP release "Outside The Show" is scheduled to be released March 28th at Chaplin's in Spring City, Pennsylvania. Unlike the last record "Old Tin Road" which consisted of a fuzzy blues sound and minimal vocal dynamic(meaning Just Dee sang). "Outside The Show" showcases more of an early 60's rock and roll, a touch of Folk and Roots with a large growth in vocal dynamic. Songs like " You still Don't Know" sung and written by Gary Geers and James Bowers brings two completely new voices to the band. "Sorrow" sung and written by crowd favorite Dee shows a soft and gut-wrenching side to the band. topping off the record are "Whole Lotta Loin" and " I Don't Mind" two classic shaking and dancing songs much like "Long Tall Sally" and "Johnny B. Good." The band hopes to decide on a label by the beginning of March 2014. Until then tune in to 88.5 and other Philly radio stations to request and listen for Chestnut Grove. All music is available on Itunes Amazon music etc. We love our fans. Thank You.
