18 years and over
The trio of Craig Fox, Patrick Keeler and ‘Little’ Jack Lawrence--heretofore known as The Greenhornes—have been churning out the highest quality rock n roll for well over a decade. Formed in the late 90s in Cincinatti, Ohio, The Greenhornes have toured the world over (and over and over) and released 3 full length albums, an ep and a boat load of singles across a multitude of record labels. What to say about the sound…pure, straight up Nuggets inspired rock and roll. And by straight-up we mean sans revisionist new wave of snotty garage rock posturing. These guys have been weened on a diet almost solely consisting of the finest r+b and rock innovators: The Kinks, The Who, The Zombies and The Easybeats are immediately recognizable in their sound. This isn't a hobby or something these guys are doing between projects--it's their life. Good, old-fashioned rock 'n' roll, plain and simple. Their most recognizable tune, ‘There Is An End’, was featured throughout Jim Jarmusch’s 2005 feature ‘Broken Flowers’. After a five year hiatus, The Greenhornes are very excited to have Jack White’s Third Man Records release their brand new full length album, the aptly titled ‘****’ in the fall of this year.
