Gang of Thieves is stealing back the spirit of American rock n roll!
These legendary Vermont Rockers bring the funky fury of the Northeast with them wherever they go. A national touring act, Gang of Thieves is coming to you live in support of their NEW ALBUM: THUNDERFUNK, recorded in Berkeley, CA with Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake). The Gang was also recently nominated for "Rock Act of the Year" by the 2013 New England Music Awards, and Best Funk Group by 7 Days “Seven Daysies” contest.
"Gang of Thieves, you've really done it this time. Soaring guitars, early 90s grunge style vocals, Flea level basslines, and a mix of funk and rock to make a party a rager... you [gave] us Thunderfunk and it's just another damn level."
-John Powell, www.angelica-music.com
Gang of Thieves' sound and energy is a cross between Led Zeppelin and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with a funky blast of Green Mountain soul thrown in the mix. With a live show that will leave you screaming and exhausted from your nose to your rump, these up and coming rock stars will leave you begging for more!
Now having performed all across the United States, the Gang has shared the stage with acts such as Skid Row, Lucid, Sophistafunk and Twiddle, wowing audiences of all ages. From the legendary Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA to the Middle East in Boston, MA, Gang of Thieves has stolen hearts across the nation and continues to skyrocket on the radar as one of the nations' premier rock and roll experiences.
