Live at Hill Country's Backyard Barbecue Grand Opening! Kalob Griffin Band

“Since their early days as young, wide-eyed college rockers, the Kalob Griffin Band has always strived to create good old-fashioned honest music. Riding on the strength of singer/guitarist Griffin’s powerful voice and lyrics as a songwriter, the boys combine stellar instrumental work, timeless harmonies, and an infectious thump and stomp rhythm to piece together an eclectic brand of Americana rock n’ roll that leaves no foot still or soul unmoved.

Kalob Griffin, Rob Dwyer (guitar/mandolin/banjo), and Eric Lawry (drums) all met while studying at Penn State University in State College, PA, in 2009. After two years and various personnel changes, the band solidified its lineup in early 2011 by adding John Hildenbrand (keyboard) and Nick Salcido (upright and electric bass). Along the way, the band has played over 100 shows, including three major festival appearances and two national tours backing emerging singer/songwriter Bobby Long (ATO Records). After their tenure with Long, the group relocated to Philadelphia, PA, and has received much brotherly, and sisterly, love from their dedicated Pennsylvania following.

The band is currently rocking rooms all over the East Coast, and preparing to bring its genuine sound and unique voice to Milkboy Studios in Ardmore, PA, where they will record a full-length follow up to their debut six track EP, which was released in Spring, 2010.”
