Bizzy Gruntry / Bio

Formed in the winter of 2011 in Bangor, Maine, these three musicians have come together to create a unique sound which blends a grunge & country feel.

Please welcome "Bizzy Gruntry" to the stage!

Tom Richmond AKA "Bizzy Gruntry" is the rhythm guitarist and primary vocalist and his all original songs are brought to life with the styling of veteran percussionist Bernie "Flash" Kellish and the amazing talents and voice of singer/songwriter Shannon Denbow on keys and backup vocals. This up and coming band is all about playing from the heart & taking the listeners on a musical journey with their one of a kind sound.

The rhythm often sounds like classic Nirvana-style (but played with an acoustic guitar) while some songs sound more country-oriented such as Christine & Gravity. A number of songs are very dark and moody, such as Purgatory Day which hints at violence through the manic ups and downs and lyrics sung through gritted teeth. The chemistry of this group is made apparent by the fun they have interacting with the crowd and their interplay between songs.

Bizzy Gruntry is just starting out and is playing many clubs and events in the Bangor area, but is branching out to the coastal areas in Maine. If you are a club owner, agent, or promoter and you are interested in this unique arrangement please contact us!
