Greyboy Allstars Announce New Covers Album and 2022 Tour Dates

Greyboy Allstars Announce New Covers Album and 2022 Tour Dates

The Greyboy Allstars are getting back on the road this year in support of their brand new cover album Get a Job: Music From The Original Broadcast Series Soul Dream. The album is set to be released April 1st via Knowledge Room Recordings.

Their tour kicks off on March 9th at Salvage Station in Asheville, NC and wraps up April 30th at Tipitina’s in New Orleans, LA. The band comprised of Karl Denson (saxophone, flute), Elgin Park (guitars), Aaron Redfield (drums), Chris Stillwell (bass) and Robert Walter (keys) will play over 20 dates in 18 states. They will make a handful of northeastern appearances including stops at Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY on April 6th and a two night run at The Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY April 7-8th.

Regarding the new Greyboy Allstars new album, members of the band stated:

“We keep a running master list of around 70 tunes. From those I picked a mixture of tried-and-true live staples and songs that weren’t always in common rotation,” says band keyboardist Robert Walter of the Get a Job set. “Usually, for gigs I propose a list and then the other members edit and tweak it. For the taping, we wanted each episode to have a theme: two of them focused on originals and the other two were covers: live favorites, and music that came out on Prestige Records. The tunes on this release are the best of the covers.”

“The covers come from the tradition of the artists we love and how they would grab the pop tunes of the day, most likely to broaden their listening base. George Benson, Grant Green, and Kenny Burrell all did Beatles and Bacharach tunes,” continues band guitarist Elgin Park, of GBA’s tapping of the tradition of savvy jazz legends exploring the then-expanding “fake book” of mid-20th-century pop songs. “Also, everyone is coming with different levels of seriousness to the music at different times.”
