Gran Marquis is an original hard rock band whose sound comes from a variety of influences. Trying to pigeonhole their sound into a certain category is a daunting task. All of the members have various musical tastes and interests that are brought to the table to form a unique yet accessible sound.
The band was formed when our mutual friend and benefactor, Joel B., introduced Eric T. (Bass) to Quis (Voice). After a vociferous dinner peppered with alcohol and musical banter, the decision was made to go organic rather than electronic and form a band. Eric immediately recruited two friends and mainstays of the local music scene, Mike Beach (Guitar) and Rob McNamara (drums). The chemistry was in place, and the songs started writing themselves.
As the project started to grow and take wing, Rob's commitment to his many other gigs, teaching and his studio became too much, so the band had to recruit another stickman. Eric reached out to another mainstay, Bob Nelson, who took the position to new levels with his skill, style and unbridled enthusiasm.
Due to Bob's longtime friendship with Mike Romeo of Symphony X, the Gran Band was lucky enough to record in The Dungeon Studio with Mike Romeo engineering and co producing. The recordings have yet to be formally released but you can get a taste of what is to come right here on this page.
At the time of this writing, the Gran Band is currently finalizing the rest of the songs for the record release and working on a video. We will continue to play shows throughout the Northeast and beyond. Stay tuned for more details and enjoy your time at Gran Central Station!
