Gang of Thieves LIVE @ Asheville Music Hall 3-1-2018
Gang of Thieves are pioneering a new breed of American Rock n Roll, injecting funky riffs, catchy melodies, and electric violin into unforgettable high energy performances. From Opera Houses to Music Halls, and Colleges to Preschools, the Gang has captivated audiences of all ages from around the globe. The band just released their new EP “Totem”(December 8th), recorded with grammy winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake), featuring singles “Raise Your Head” and “The Way I Feel”.
Gang of Thieves was formed in 2009 when cousins Michael Reit (Vocals) and Tobin Salas (Bass) joined forces with close friend Nicholas Wood (Guitar). Since then the Gang has played close to 1,000 shows through 38 states, receiving the title of “Road Warriors” from publishers around the country. During this time the Gang was joined by family and friends alike on guitar, drums, and horns, only just recently reverting back to a powerhouse 4 piece rock and roll outfit with Taylor Whipple (formerly of Lynguistic Civilians) on drums. Previous renditions of the Gang can be heard on their Dinosaur Sandwich Party album (2011, 4 Piece), Thunderfunk album (2014, 5 piece), and Born to be Loud album (2016, 6 piece).
