Grover Anderson and The Lampoliers
Don’t miss a simply fantastic night of music that will have you swaying back and forth enjoying the pure goodness from Grover Anderson and the Lampoliers.
Singer Songwriter, Grover Anderson teaches high school English & drama in his small mountain town of Murphy’s, building a devout local following, and touring the US in the summer. He released four albums and played in 23 states, yet still he wondered if he’d given short shrift to a dream. Then 2020 happened, and as he witnessed the hardships endured by career performers, Grover had never felt more fortunate to hold a secondary gig.
At the beginning of 2020, Grover and his bandmate Josh Certo began mapping out songs for what was to be Grover’s fifth album. The intent was to use the recordings as a foundation on which their band, Grover Anderson & the Lampoliers, could collaborate through a busy year of gigs and rehearsals. When lockdown began, their project quickly changed directions—Grover, Josh, Marshall Henry, and Anthony Delaney recorded their parts in home studios, sharing tracks virtually to create a fundamentally different album.
When distancing guidelines cleared his 2020 touring calendar, Grover began playing Pickup Truck Concerts, driving all over Northern California to play safely-distanced acoustic shows from the bed of his truck for folks in their driveways and a few shows at Dying Breed Brewing. People who’d loved shows with his band The Lampoliers developed a new appreciation for Grover’s assiduous songwriting and fanciful narratives at these small, modified house concerts.
The band is so excited that live music is back and have booked up their summer with shows across Northern California. We’re stoked to welcome them back!!!
