Los Angeles based funky road dogs Greyhounds announced today that a late summer tour is scheduled to begin Saturday, August 11th and that the band will be performing as a trio. Bass player, Jay McHenry, will no longer be touring or recording with Greyhounds for personal reasons. Pianist, Anthony Farrell, will be filling up the low-end space on his Fender Rhodes with a little help from Andrew Trube on the guitar as well. “We are just dealing with the cards we were all dealt. It is so vital for everyone in a band to be on the same page and to share the same goals. Our sound is obviously going to change a little now but I wouldn’t expect it to be too drastic. We’ve only gotten the chance to rehearse a few times and it definitely feels different. But, who knows what will happen when we get on the road again and start playing every night as a three piece. We’re gonna just go for it and see what happens!” drummer Nick Pencis said.
Touring virtually nonstop for an entire year, Greyhounds have covered a lot of ground and their national fan base is beginning to grow enthusiastically. The band returns to the road following a long tour that began in May and hit the Funkyard Music Festival in Long Beach, California. The band got as far as Virginia before heading back to the west coast and ending with a successful two-show debut at High Sierra Music Festival in July.
Dates for this late summer haul begin in Memphis, Tennessee and continue on through October and possibly as late as November when Greyhounds plan to start recording their awaited second studio album if they find a record label. August tour dates are available at JamBase. Tour dates for September will be posted as soon as they become solidified, but expect to see Greyhounds in the northwest and California.
