Anyone who’s had to choose a band name before knows it’s one tough nut to crack. You’re trying to be nonchalant without being half-assed, silly without being corny, righteous without being pretentious.
And then, when you finally have that perfect name- guess what? It’s taken.
My band mates and I went through the gauntlet of this process and came out with something we feel is a custom fit. Our new band name is as follows:
Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit
We are three-piece rock n’ roll unit comprised of myself on guitar and vocals; Patrick Sanderson on bass, and Jake Causey on drums. Jake and Patrick have been a joy to work with thus far- their youth, dedication, and raw talent keep me inspired and on my toes.
We are very excited about our new namesake and look forward to upholding the broad convictions by which we stand.
As the weeks and months pass, we will be cultivating our identity before your eyes and encourage you to become active participants in the development of this exciting new project.
The Grit’s first show is Thursday, August 25 at Headhunters in Austin, TX, so come on out if you’re in the area. And hopefully we’ll be seeing the rest of you in the very near future!
Keep in touch through our social networks and email list, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on all the Gritty details.
Until next time, stay hungry.
