McAlister Drive just signed a deal with Converse to record our new single "The United South" at the private Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn.   We will be doing a special live performance of this song at the Rockwood Music Hall Thursday night and then heading into the studio the following morning to lay the new song down.   Here are the details of our celebration show:

Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2)

Rockwood Music Hall presents Converse Recording Artist McAlister Drive and Albany's best rock/soul band Wild Adriatic


McAlister Drive is an Americana group from Boston, Massachusetts, led by singer-songwriter Christoph Krey, who founded the group in New Orleans during late 2005.  WERS has described the band by saying “They are musical chameleons with heartfelt, genuine lyrics, and Boston is lucky to have McAlister Drive as a part of the music scene.”  In late 2012, the band came to prominence with the release of their critically acclaimed record the Goddess.  In October 2012, CMJ said “With a sound that inspires Jet and Tom Petty to walk down the aisle during a Mumford & Son’s song, you might find McAlister Drive to be the newborn lovechild.”


MD has been a support act for artists like Imagine Dragons, Foster the People, Counting Crows, Jakob Dylan, Howie Day, Young the Giant, Talib Kweli, Hellogoodbye, and many more showing their diverse chemistry on stage.


Wild Adriatic is a band of four friends seeking to carry forth the torch of timeless rock n roll infused with tons of soul, captivating guitar work, and an impressive live show. The Saratoga Springs, NY outfit released their latest EP “Lock & Key” in April 2012 and immediately picked back up with their relentless performance schedule throughout the East Coast.


A series of quirky music videos and a humble, eager-to-connect-with-people mindset has quickly brought the band positive attention from music lovers, press, and industry heads alike. In addition, the band has been lucky enough to be asked to support acts such as MuteMath, Matt & Kim, Company of Thieves, Flogging Molly, Third Eye Blind, Phantogram, All American Rejects, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Deer Tick, and many more.


“Flawlessly tight with infectious melodies and tons of soul.” – Relix | “Full of rocking blues, soul, and depth.” – The Huffingto


This show is 21+ with doors opening at 10:30 PM

"Americana septet MCALISTER DRIVE feels a bit revived of late. First track, the glistening "Devil's Ghost," is worth that price by itself,  Michael Moratta, The Phoenix

"It’s a new type of pop rock; not quite country and not quite southern rock, something else, something refreshing and new for you to rock out to."   Dave Wall, Seeds the Hypetree Blog
