Gravel Roads' original music is a flavor of traditional country (and a gentle taste of blues) bringing a unique sound to an inspirational set of songs. Along with our original music, we also perform cover music in the same vein as our traditional country style and sound.
We are a 4 piece (acoustic, electric guitar, bass, and drums) traditional country band. Following a year's worth of studio work we completed our first CD in Oct. 2013, the self-titled project, Gravel Roads. As a guitar duo Jeff and Jim have been performing and playing together for over 25 years. Tom and D joined Gravel Roads in the spring of 2013 and bring many more years of seasoned experience to this unique group of musicians.
We are available for festivals, fairs, special community or church events, and any venue looking for an entertaining show. Audience members can expect to be drawn into the positive message of our music sets and relaxed atmosphere of our stage presence. (We are also experienced in leading contemporary worship sets for churches.)
We are mature, professional, polished, and respectful of any facility where asked to perform. We feel our performances present an atmosphere of "easy listening". If you are looking for a rowdy bunch of young guns, that isn't who we are. But...we won't put our audience to sleep either! Our music and song sets are also very "dance-able" but not too loud or intrusive. The content of all the music we perform reflects who we are as people so we are careful to choose songs that are not offensive or inappropriate.
In a nutshell what you get from Gravel Roads is down-to-earth traditional country with a slight edge and originality that much of today's country music is lacking.
