Girls Guns & Glory blends rock ‘n’ roll, roots influences, and classic country to create its own brand of high-energy American music. The innovative foursome are inspired by early ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. Rolling Stone named them one of “10 New Artists You Need To Know” in 2014 and has called GG&G “Modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by the Mavericks…Think-y, soulful lyrics paired with a beat you can dance to.”
Featuring Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo.
“A dynamic and dynamite night of alt-country…You won’t want to miss” —Washington Post.
