I was quite excited for the Girls Guns and Glory show at The Sinclair recently. Not only is this one of my favorite bands, but Julie Rhodes – another favorite – opened the show! How great is it to be able to see friends knock it out of the park at a wonderful venue with an alleviating audience that was large despite competing with a Patriots playoff game!
New Year’s Day for me equals Girls Guns & Glory’s tribute to Hank Williams, the great country singer and songwriter who died on that day in 1953 at the age of 29. This year marks my second time seeing this show, and I fully intend it to become an annual tradition.
Last year, the show was at Lizard Lounge; this year, they upgraded to The Sinclair which I think is a better venue for this show (don’t get me wrong, I love Lizard Lounge but The Sinclair is a great venue). It holds more people too!
Girls Guns and Glory, a Boston-based country band, is riding high these days due to the justifiably great press its Hank Williams tribute album (and the shows dedicated to that album) is receiving. The Extended Play Sessions hosted them for a more-than-sold-out session last week and they brought their A game for this Hank Williams tribute performance.
The band performs original songs as well, and until recently had performed the tribute shows only about a half-dozen times per year. I was lucky enough to see one of the traditional New Year’s Day shows so I knew how good this show would be.
The Extended Play Sessions American Roots Music Television announced the return of the Girls Guns and Glory, who will be in the studio for a Session on Monday, June 8th at 7 pm performing their fabulous Hank Williams tribute. I saw them on New Year’s Day for the first time and they are marvelous! Unfortunately, this show sold out in a couple of hours, but look for a return engagement.
Come share some fabulous music and friendship at this Session! Read the rest of this entry
Several friends told me how much they enjoy Girls Guns and Glory, a Boston-based country-rock band, but I’d not yet seen them perform. Every year around the new year, they perform a Hank Williams tribute show and I was fortunate to see one of the sold-out shows at Lizard Lounge!
This was my first show of 2015 and what a show it was! Read the rest of this entry
