What is so suprising? They are a fantastic band, rock N groove of the 70's. They play fun happy music. Just a joy to watch live.
Always a fine time.
He's also on James Island, not West Ashley. I'm happy to say I put his beautiful family in that house. I met Gino at a gig and we talked after. Moving closer to downtown came up and we left right then and there to see the house at 11pm. Synchronicity in so many ways. It was absolutely perfect for them!
come see godwin falcon! https://www.facebook.com/events/1405720769…
I'm not surprised at all. If you take the time to really listen to these guys you'll hear it. It's like jello in a mold, a little bit of wiggle room for each of them but together they stay in the ring and produce a solid confident sound.
Good dudes. Happy for them. I'm not bitter that my band didn't win at all......at all.... :*(
Last Godwin Falcon show I attended was pure serenity. The music was eloquent and beautiful; the lyrics were like golden whispers in my ear holes; and, besides being roofied by one of the band members and forced to play solitaire for 3 hours (with actual cards!!! WTF!!), it was the best experience of my life. Its good to see that beach music is making a come back!!!
Awesome musicians! Always a great time.
he's from Ecuador! revise!
"And then there's the tap dancer. That's not something you see every day." Have you guys not seen the V-Tones?
Excellent writing about a couple of real people with genuine talent. Wish them well as they travel around playing their music together. The Allman Brothers started touring in an old Winnebago too and things worked out pretty well musical career wise for them. Shovels and Rope is further proof that great songs come from those who live them.
Saw them last night. I thought they were great. Not metal at all though.
Well, this was a great article and I throughly enjoyed all three video's by Shovels and Rope. I would like to see this duo in person. Will watch the board at The Pour House to see if they are coming back anytime soon!
The Headline says it all, "Bully Pulpit is not a heavy metal band" and yet they are chosen as the Best Metal Band in Charleston. Then the article puts the blame on Charleston Music Fans for voting... in reality it's the City Paper staff to blame because they didn't do their homework. If they had taken the time to listen to the nominees I doubt anyone would let them be in this category after hearing this band versus the other groups. Are you guys trying to exemplify the diversity of our city, or just throw some shit together to get the ads? Either do this right or don't do it at all! It not only trivializes our local scene, but makes CP seem like an over the hill mom trying to remain 'hip'.
I lived in N. Chuck and Hilton Head and used to go see these guys. Well, I moved to Tn. and our yearly "Blue Plum Festival" hosted Sol Driven Train and they did a set. Their music is always uplifting,and enjoyable! I love the onstage antics w/ the drums!! Keep the E. Tn. area on your list of "places to play" please! Excellent Band and cool bunch of guys! Later
Congrats to all the winners! Old You didn't win this year, but we will be rocking out tonight at the Pourhouse for the CPMA After-party!
Whitt for mayor.
Wadata! Definitely the funkiest peeps in town!
