Gang of Thieves
Gang of Thieves is an incredible rock and roll experience to behold. Get ready to dance and prepare for an unforgettable live performance when these talented young upstarts come to town! Hailing out of Burlington, Vermont, the Gang and their trusty dog P. Funk have the mentality of modern day road warriors, with 4 DIY coast to coast tours under their belt since the band was formed in 2009. Recently, the band recorded a new album titled "Thunderfunk" in Berkeley, CA with Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Papa Roach, Less than Jake), and is currently on their 5th national tour to promote its release in late December. Previous recording credits for the Gang include an album with Steve Jankowski of Blood Sweat & Tears at Jankland Studios in Wall, NJ (Dinosaur Sandwich Party/2011), and a music video single at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA (Lost&Found/2012).
"You know how Funkadelic kind of specializes in baby-making music?...Well, Gang of Thieves dips into that groovin' baby-making sound...And you know what that means. That means without even thinking about it, you're shaking whatever booty you got." -Gary Shwind, Incognito Magazine. Gang of Thieves sound and energy is a cross between Led Zeppelin and the early 90's Red Hot Chili Peppers. In a recent interview, Mason Smith of Big Heavy World's Rocket Shop (105.9 FM WOMM-LP, The Radiator) praises: "Their style is the kind that fits perfectly everywhere; from a dirty basement party, to a club, to a concert hall."
Now having performed all over the United States, including a show in Albany, NY with Skid Row, the Gang is only picking up speed as they continue to wow audiences of all ages. From the legendary Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA to the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston, MA, they have stolen hearts and been met with absolute enthusiasm everywhere they play!
