the Glasspack / Bio

Formed in the new millennium by singer-songwriter and front-man "Dirty" Dave Johnson, The Glasspack is the answer to the worn-out southern rock of the classic rock airwaves and the sudden staleness of modern hard rock radio. Distinctly of Louisville, this creative and unique Kentucky band has pulled its influences from the best of the 60's jam rock and 70's hard rock/punk, thus obtaining a very wide variety of listeners and fans. They have been seen busting guitars on each other, playing guitar behind their backs, with their teeth, and anyway humanly possible.

The Pack, as fans know them, has been seen touring and rocking with the likes of The Frogs, Sick of It All, Melt Banana, Cherry Valence, The Hookers, Gaza Strippers, Snapcase, Nebula, Easy Action, Coliseum, My Morning Jacket, King Kong, Elliot, AFI, Honky, Valis, and the Shipping News. The band has also been a part of many festivals like the Mountain Dew Action Sports Tour, Initial Records' Krazy Fest, New York's CMJ Marathon, Austin's SXSW Festival, Roadburn Festival, Lebowski Fest, and the Stoner Hands of Doom Festival. Some of the stages they have graced include Headliners (Louisville), the Ritz in Austin (TX), the Garage in Hollywood, the 360 in Toronto, The Double Door in Chicago, and even C.B.G.B.'s in Manhattan.

The bands music is a popular in the area of licensing from Small Stone Records directly and Rumblefish Music Licensing in Portland, OR. The Glasspack's music can be frequently found in various episodes of MTV's "Viva La Bam" and "Homewreckers" shows, FX's "Sons of Anarchy" shows, and even video games like Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage" by Activision and ESPN's "2K5 Pro Baseball," scoring them a spot in the ASCAP society.
