Giffords Lane…..”Coming Of Age”
With an industry immersed in power pop, slick production, and samples, samples, samples….it is great to see a pure rock and roll band perform live and light up an audience. It’s even better when that band is all 12-14 years old.
Giffords Lane is fast making a name for themselves as one of the next big things to come out of the northeast coast. With their 3rd album Just Enough recently released on iTunes, impressive sellout shows at The Bitter End, The Count Basie Theater The Stone Pony and The State Theater, plus an ever growing legion of fans, the future belongs to GIFFORDS LANE.
In 2013 Giffords Lane opened for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis at the Skate and Surf Festival held in New Jersey. Giffords Lane also opened for Quiet Riot at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. To date Giffords Lane has played over 200 shows! On October 5 2013, Giffords Lane made history when they performed live at the St. George Theatre on Staten Island. Giffords Lane was the youngest band to headline the St. George Theatre in its 84 year History!
During the winter of 2014, Giffords Lane put together another mashup by combining Katy Perry's 'ROAR' and Aerosmiths 'Sweet Emotion'. A music video soon followed! Giffords Lane went back into the recording studio to record 3 more songs in February. In April Giffords Lane released their 3rd EP: Just Enough. Giffords Lane hosted 2 record release party; one in Philadelphia on Phillies #1 radio Show The Preston and Steve Show followed by a performance at the legendary JC Dobbs and then the following day at the Victory Beer Hall at xFinity Live.
