True. Country. Music.
Though the term “County Music” can mean quite a variety of things these days,. To Gunpowder & Lace, it means honoring the traditional lyrical themes and musical styles of the genre, combined with very carefully selected songs by contemporary artists. This is the music that captures the essence and tells the story of everyday people; it is what they like to call True Country Music.
Featuring three dynamic lead vocalists, tight harmonies, engaging stage presence and high-caliber musicianship, this seven-piece group plays authentic honky-tonk dance music served up in a polished, professional manner. Faithfully covering best loved hits by both male and female artists, they deliver a warm, authentic country sound that's sure to please the discriminating listener and send them straight to the dance floor.
Gunpowder & Lace is fronted by Angie Brooks, whose powerful range enables her to cover anything from classic Linda Ronstadt to Carrie Underwood or Martina McBride. Angie is joined onstage by Roger Gill (lead vocals/bass) and David Anthony (lead vocals/acoustic guitar); these two are able to deliver anything from Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. to Alan Jackson, George Strait, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean. The group's well-seasoned instrumentalists include Joey Michaels (keyboards/backing vocals), J.J. Foxxx (lead guitar), and Gary Roda (pedal steel and six-string guitars).
"This band brings a vibrant sense of authenticity to every performance, delivering a truly memorable show. If you are looking for the best in classic to contemporary “True Country Music," don’t miss this act when they are in your area!"
One Door Closes; Another Opens
We have a big announcement for the whole Gunpowder & Lace family; our dear Katie Johnson is expanding her own! That's right, Katie and her Husband Justen are expecting their first baby in June 2020! We are all proud and happy for them both but sad as well, as Katie has bowed out of the band for the foreseeable future. We wish Katie and Justen much happiness with their new little one, and hope she will still make an occasional appearance with the band.
And as the door closes for Katie, please welcome our new female lead, Angie Brooks! Angie is a great singer and super lady we are sure you are gonna love. She will make her first official G&L appearance at Mavericks Country Lounge in Pleasanton on February 1st, filling out our powerhouse front line between David Anthony and Roger Gill.
