New QMB CD is a Musical Journey
The Quimby Mountain Band once again is demonstrating its always-expanding musical depth with the release of the band's newest CD. In Quimby's third album, the self-titled Quimby Mountain Band, each song has its own story to tell.
Several of the band members contributed lyrics for the songs on the album, which makes for a blend of musical style that boasts its own personality in each tune, but works together seamlessly.
The first, and appropriately titled, single on the album, "Town of Love," pulls the listener right in with a pleasing mix of instruments and lyricism. It showcases the band's ability to craft songs that instantly will people to dance, but also provides a meaning. Lead vocalist Jesse Bardwell sings, "I was sick and needing aid/When you touched me I felt saved/Was it all a dream?/Are you really the one meant for me?" The song explores one of the simplest aspects of human emotion, and that is love.
Quimby Mountain Band consistently ties back to its roots, and this album is arguably its best one yet. It evokes love, remembering your home, and doing everything with heart and soul. The band continues to grow musically, but it still keeps the signature style that fans have come to love.
John Ginty joins Quimby Mountain Band for special show at the Sherman Theater April 122011-08-17 15:32:11
Quimby Mountain Band will be joined on stage by arguably one of the greatest organ players of all-time, John Ginty, when they headline a special show at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Saturday night April 12.
Quimby opened up for Railroad Earth at the Sherman Theater in 2012, and also appeared last summer ahead of Dickey Betts at the Great Pocono Raceway Festival in Stroudsburg.
Ginty has toured and recorded with his Hammond B-3 organ with artists such as Jewel, Citizen Cope, Santana, Matthew Sweet, Court Yard Hounds, Bad Religion, and he was an original member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band, a band in which he received two Grammy Nominations, as well as a Gospel Music Award for Urban Album of the year in 2003. That same year, Ginty appeared on the Blind Boys of Alabama's Grammy Award winner Higher Ground. He is currently touring with the Dixie Chicks. His discography spans over a decade and a half, and showcases his eclectic influences and unique sounds on the keys.
Quimby Mountain Band, meanwhile, continues to be a top drawing act in the Greater Northwest New Jersey region. The band's CD Release Event at the Blairstown Theater in February was a sell out. The new album, the band's third, has gotten great reviews. Loren Kessell, writing for the Aquarian Weekly, says "Quimby's new album demonstrates the depth of their music, with each song telling its own story. It's a blend of musical styles that boasts individual personalities while seamlessly tying the disc together."
In addition to Ginty, other special guests - and surprises - are expected. And the Jordan Koza Family Band is an opening act along with Mike Frank & Friends.
