God Street Wine Confirms Summer Tour In Honor Of 30th Anniversary
God Street Wine was formed in New York City in 1988 and will celebrate their 30th anniversary with a string of summer dates. The five-show run will include visits to some cities the band hasn’t played in over 20 years.
Up first for God Street Wine is a performance at City Winery in Chicago on July 29. From there, the five-piece plays City Winery’s Washington, D.C. location on August 1 and makes their Ardmore Music Hall debut in Philadelphia on August 2. GSW concludes the run with stops at City Winery outposts in Boston on August 3 and new York City on August 4.
Original members Lo Faber (guitar), Jon Bevo (keyboards), Dan Pifer (bass), Tom “Tomo” Osander (drums) and Aaron Maxwell (guitar) are all aboard for the summer swing. GSW recorded five studio albums, took part in the H.O.R.D.E. tour and performed more than 1,000 shows between 1988 and a 1999 breakup. The five founding members came together in 2001 for a farewell show to the Wetlands Preserve. In 2009, the quintet reunited at a private concert held in honor of an old friend who passed away. Then, in 2010, GSW returned for a series of NYC gigs and have played together sporadically since.
