We have some very big news today. After several unforgettable years of performing, recording, and traveling the world, bassist Sam Grisman is leaving the Deadly Gentlemen to pursue other musical outlets in his new home of Nashville, TN. We wish him all the best, and we will certainly miss him and his unique, soulful musicianship. It has been an amazing run!
Luckily, we have found an absolutely brilliant replacement, and we will be carrying on much stronger than ever. We are so happy to announce that the unbelievable Adam Chaffins will be joining the Deadly Gentlemen as a permanent member, effective right away.
Adam grew up in Kentucky, and he is one of the most versatile and talented musicians we have ever met. His bass playing and singing are forces of nature, and he fits into the band perfectly. Adam performed with us last week in NYC when we opened up for Mavis Staples, and he knocked it out of the park. We look forward to touring with him, starting in December up in Alaska.
Finally, just a reminder that the Deadly Gentlemen’s Ball is happening on Sat., Jan. 25 at the Sinclair in Harvard Square. The lineup includes Della Mae, Joy Kills Sorrow, Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage, and others! Get your tickets now before it is too late, they only cost $20!
