The Gourds Bring Live Show and New Album to NYC


“One of the best performing bands in America” – New York Times

The hard-touring band The Gourds – whom the New York Times called “one of the best performing bands in America” – are currently in the middle of a 37-date summer and fall tour. The band has earned a reputation for incredible concerts. Frontman Kevin Russell has described the live show as “kind of a cross between a revival, a house party, a pep rally, and a pow wow.”

The Gourds will also be performing during this year’s Americana Music Conference in Nashville at the Mercy Lounge on October 12th.

The tour will give audiences a chance to hear new songs from the band’s Vanguard Records debut Old Mad Joy created at Levon Helm Studios with producer Larry Campbell (Musical Director of Helm’s ‘Midnight Rambles’ and formerly with Bob Dylan). Old Mad Joy was released this past Tuesday, September 13th.

In a recent review, the Houston Press raved, “Don’t be surprised if they hit 80 home runs this year as they tour hard behind what will likely be the most important album of their storied career.”

The band has played roughly 150 shows a year since 1998, so they possess an intuition with one another as performers and an utter command of the stage.

The Gourds play Sullivan Hall on Saturday October 1 with opening act Pat Sweany
