The Grand Ole Uproar’s musical gumbo conjures up the Texas twang of Waylon Jennings and Doug Sahm, the electric carnival of Dylan, the improvisational impulses of the Grateful Dead, and the laid-back swampy sound of J.J. Cale, as well as many other(and older) songs and artists in the American tradition.
The Grand Ole Uproar frequently tours the Southeast and Midwest, and has shared the stage with artists like Grammy Award winning Texas trio Los Lonely Boys, The Hackensaw Boys, PALEFACE, The Southern Gothic, Drunken Prayer, The Deadstring Brothers, The Corbitt Brothers, A Boy Named Banjo, Empire Strikes Brass, Cosmic Charlie, and the Straight 8s.
“…Greensboro’s The Grand Ole Uproar recalls The Grateful Dead at its most concise (particularly the band’s 1970 one-two peak of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty), pairing deliberately loose folk with Texas twang and electric textures. (Think: “Uncle John’s Band” in double-time.)”
“Back in the mid-90’s The Black Crowes were mixing up Lowell George and Levon Helm with early 70’s rock bands and Sly Stone. The Grand Ole Uproar take it further, lending to their country carnival sound a back porch feel and a mellow-down-easy carefree vibe.”
