What a weekend! Coming down from a rocking show with Rock Collection in Sebastopol Saturday night; it was great seeing our Sebtown folk! Also, major -well sort of- renovations taking place amongst the Girls & Boys.. we're transforming ourselves into warriors!

We're excited to be playing an acoustic set tomorrow night in San Francisco at Hotel Utah opening for Charlie Parr, then gearing up for a weekend in Sonoma County, first with an acoustic show Saturday night at Hopmonk Tavern Sonoma and finally, our return to our hometown spot, Toad in the Hole Pub Sunday night. We've got a lot in store for you girls and boys.. see you soon!

 

Hey kids! We're stayin' busy! We're looking forward to our return to Nor Cal this weekend for an evening show in Sebastopol at Aubergine After Dark with Rock Collection. The Rock Collection features Mark Karan (RatDog/Phil and Friends) on electric guitar, Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz (ALO) on acoustic guitar and pedal steel, Greg Anton (Zero) on drums, and Robin Sylvester (RatDog) on bass. We are super excited to be playing before such a prestigious lineup of musicians!

This has been an eventful year so far and we are making the most of our time. The band is busy rehearsing, writing, and refining our sound. Our current lineup will be featured at our upcoming shows at The New Parish in Oakland (4/19) and The Cliffs in Shell Beach (4/21) opening for The Mother Hips, complete with the always stellar addition of Mike Emerson on keys, and Nick Simmons on guitar. We think you will all be pleasantly surprised!

Hope to see you Girls & Boys soon!

 

We had a great time playing The Fillmore in the Poster Room last night!! So much vibe in such an amazing venue. We're back at it today with rehearsal, a guest appearance at a friend's gig, and then off to play an all night jam! It is fulfilling to be out, doing what we love, playing as much as possible with people and at places we admire, sharing music and seeing so many new faces at our shows lately!!

The sound has captured us.

 

This week is a busy one for us. We are looking forward to playing 4 shows in SLO this week, including Monday for Songwriters at Play at Upper Crust Trattoria, Thursday at Luna Red in SLO, and rounding out the week with Friday and Saturday afternoons at Cambria Pines Lodge from 4-7pm.

We're a busy schedule with shows in LA, SLO, Cambria, SF, and Santa Rosa this month including our return to The Fillmore playing in the legendary Poster Room! The band is growing and things are sounding better by the day!! We have a few new songs in the mix that we are looking forward to sharing with you. We have lots of shows coming up so check out our show page to your left and see what we are up too.

See ya soon Girls & Boys

 

Howdy Girls & Boys!

Wow! Half-way through February already - really? Well, we are thrilled and welcome 2013 with open arms! Thanks to everyone we've met along the way; those who've been with us from the very start and to those of you new to the Girls & Boys family, welcome! We are on quite an exhilarating journey and are very pleased to have you come along. There's exciting news to share, as always! Read on...

Most recent and pressing announcements are the additions to our calendar which includes a spot at this year's Bottle Rock Festival in Napa, CA coming up in May! ( http://bottlerocknapavalley.com/ ) The only word to describe the feeling it gives us while perusing the lengthy collection of musicians/idols on this bill with our band listed shortly behind would be ecstatic! And.. maybe a bit surreal. If that weren't enough news to write home about, we've also landed an opening spot for legendary bay area California soul band The Mother Hips ( http://www.motherhips.com/ ) this April the 19th at The New Parish in Oakland, CA (http://www.girlsandboysmusic.com/shows/2013-04-19-no-venue/) as well as Sunday April 21st at the famous Cliff's Resort (http://www.cliffsresort.com/) in Pismo Beach, CA. One more event you won't want to miss will be our debut at SLO Brew March 2nd opening for Carrie Rodriquez ( http://www.carrierodriguez.com/ ) where we'll will be kicking off the night with an acoustic set! Tickets are available through us for $8 dollars, or $10 with the purchase of our album. That's right, $2 for our album! Send us an email with your email address to: gnbband1@gmail.com and we'll send you a link to PayPal. We can then deliver your tickets to you in person, by mail, or have it waiting for you at will call the night of the show. Don't miss out; as of right now there's less 20 tickets left! We can't wait to get on that stage and rock!


"I Would", the third track off our debut album is now getting regular airplay on the epic SLO station Krush 92.5 The Perfect Blend 
http://www.krush925.com/ ) . And we've recently heard that "Winter Moon" as well as "Scratch & Scream" (a featured song from Shoreline's film, Divorce Invitation http://www.divorceinvitation.com/) are both being played on KCBX 90.1FM ( vhttp://www.kcbx.org/ ) We've met many new fans who are coming out to shows after hearing our music and have been told from tons of family and friends that they are hearing us every day! 

We have a new string of tunes added to our set and the band is getting tighter and more polished every day. We are so excited and privileged to have our members on board; the one and only Mark Tarlton (Echodrone, Shambhala) laying it down with his impeccable style and beats, along with the sweet, soulful and mindful talent of the all-musical guitarist Nick Simmons (http://nicksimmons.org/). We recently debuted the full band at Sonoma County's Arlene Francis Center ( http://arlenefranciscenter.org/ ) accompanied by the incomparable pianist and true B3 player, Mike Emerson ( http://www.mikeemerson.net/ ), who made several appearances on our debut album The Feel of the Sun on tracks including "Stranger", "Scratch & Scream", "Tiny Little Root", and "Winter Moon". Thanks for the personality Mike!
It was a gas!

We have been hard at work recording demos of our new material, working on setting up a new studio, rehearsing and gigging. Things are moving forward for us with the song "I Would" being put into regular rotation on the KRUSH 92.5 in San Luis Obsipo!! We are working on getting our song "Wanna" and another song in a movie coming out next year as well. Most of our time has been spent writing new material and rehearsing with new found musicians. It has been a productive month with a lot of travel as well. It has been a sacrifice moving out of our home, hitting the road and staying with family and friends but it is paying off and things are looking awesome for the upcoming year. We have learned a lot about the music business in the last year and are going to put it to use for ourselves in the coming months and make our music sustainable! Hope you are all well and we hope to see you soon!
