Gladstones

with Kingdom Of Mustang

About The Gladstones:

Long ago in a distant galaxy, Bob Girard toured the East Coast in the estimable Charlottesville band, The Casuals featuring Johnny Sportcoat. The band dissolved, Bob got a job, had kids, the whole nine yards. A few years back, Bob got run over by a bus in Rome, started playing guitar as therapy for his shattered arm, and began to write songs again at an incredible rate. The Gladstones were born.

 

Bob enlisted his long-time friend Charlie Pastorfield to play guitar in his new band. Charlie had spent most of his adult life playing in The Skip Castro Band and The Believers, then he also got a job and had kids. Their kickin’ rhythm section consists of Jim Ralston on drums, Tim Ryan on bass.

 

The Gladstones play straight, old school rock ‘n’ roll of every variety, ranging from Johnny Cash to The Clash, from Rolling Stones to Grateful Dead. They mix in a bunch of original songs, penned by Girard and Pastorfield, that fit right in to the general mayhem.

 

About Kingdom of Mustang:

Kingdom of Mustang is a musical collaboration featuring four veterans of the Charlottesville music scene: Mark Roebuck [The Deal, Big Circle, Sub-Seven], Michael Clarke [The Deal, Left Lane], Tim Ryan [The Gladstones, Jeebus, Left Lane], and Rusty Speidel [SGG&L].  Back in 2016 they discovered a mutual love for songwriting and making records and have since released 4 albums of powerful indie pop rock to critical acclaim.   Once in a while the band pops its collective head out and plays some live music for the people before heading back into the studio to make the next record.   This time, in addition to select cuts from those albums and some choice covers, Kingdom of Mustang will be previewing songs from their forthcoming 5th full length album, "Glad Days".
