Spanning generations and centuries, the collective that has been known as The Art Gomperz Band has unleashed an all new original Bluegrass, Country and Americana CD sharing with the world a celebration of music, life and friendship.
Honoring their late friend and incredible song writing talent, Bev Hahn, The Art Gomperz Band has done a wonderful job of bringing Bev’s music into reality and is proud to present her words and music. A full house of ten original songs encompasses the breadth of Bev's music.
From a strong backbone of bluegrass and country, Bev's writing also spans facets of ballads, swing and folk rock.
“A Different Story To Tell” not only reflects well on Bev’s approach to songwriting but also to her perspective to life in general. Bev was a light in the darkness. A friend when you didn’t even know you needed one, a confidant and a musical powerhouse.
Bev’s partner of many years, Dan Geib, also brings new life and excitement to original Banjo & Flatpicking instrumentals and Jenna Mammina contributes not only her stellar singing talent but also her lovely collaboration for Inner Smile as well.
Allen Bates, one of Bluegrass finest Dobro Players, brings not only innovative and energetic dobro to the mix, but also solid banjo & mandolin on several selections.
