Gringo Star readying tour

By condensing a palate of swirling and innovative guitar voyages and a sweat-soaked baroque punk ethos that loses itself in carpet-crawling majesty, Gringo Star has emerged as Atlanta’s favorite rock and roll sons. Brothers Nick and Pete Furgiuele, along with Pete DeLorenzo and Matt McCalvin have continually built momentum, crisscrossing the country and honing their chops on rock and roll’s frontline.

Crafting an art-damaged and intense presence, the group’s sound falls somewhere between The Animals, Motown and The Kinks. In person, the group’s soft-spoken demeanor instills a sense of alluring mystery, but on stage, Gringo Star explode. Never ones to hang on to the same instruments for too long, each member of the group sprints and hurdles from station to station, swapping out guitar for bass for drums for voice, keyboard for accordion, kazoo for tambourine.

As a result, the band’s multifaceted musicianship culminates in dense and cerebral rock mantras that are hard-wired to the head and heart. “The band’s music is incontestably real and is delivered in such a genuine manner that can be nothing short of enjoyable” The Savannah Chronicle

“Gringo Star filled the room, capturing the audience’s attention, as they stole the show with their driving Southern garage rock and impeccable rhythm” Golden Gate X Press“Rock ‘n roll with a bit of edge about it…it has enough twists and turns to mark Gringo Star as a band to watch. Wild and free, rock at its finest” Americana UK magazine
