From Gunnelpumpers member Doug Johnson:
String things are afoot! This Monday, Gunnelpumpers will be the featured in-studio musical guest on Chicago Public Media’s Eight Forty-Eight program! Please tune in this Monday, April 30, to WBEZ 91.5 FM from 9-10 am CST, where we will play several songs, play some transitions between segments of the program, and do some Q&A with the hosts.
If you’re not in the Chicago area, you can still tune in through the “World Wide Web” at http://wbez.org. (Perchance that’s why they call it the www…) The program will also be rebroadcast from 9-10 pm that same evening. WBEZ plans to put the music performed in-studio, as well as a video of one of our songs, on their website for later consumption.
Monday’s lineup will feature (in orchestration order):
John Meyer: electric guitar
David Keller: ‘cello
Douglas Johnson: Clevinger bass
Michael Hovnanian: double bass
Randy Farr: percussion
Bob Garrett: drum kit
We also have a show next Thursday, May 3, at Reggies Music Joint, 2105 S. State St. in Chicago. We are excited to share the bill with talented bands Bad Forum and Samadhi Vibe, and the evening promises to be replete with sonic goodness.
10pm Bad Forum
11pm Samadhi Vibe
$5 cover, 21+
Although it’s official release isn’t until June 9 at the Gallery Cabaret in Chicago, our third CD, Tritonium, will be available at Thursday’s show. We’re really proud of this album and think you’ll enjoy this huge departure from our previous two releases.
And don’t forget, support public radio!
