“Chris Wojtal’s voice is just…well, it’s just plain great. One of those voices you know you can keep listening to.” Not sure why we didn’t see this earlier, but thanks Shockwave Magazine for the review of Unvarished. Stay tuned as we some digital 45s coming out shortly. #DS45s

We’re going to be celebrating the lives and music of Jerry Garcia and J.J. Cale by including some of their songs in our sets tomorrow night at the Waterfront Hotel Bar in Fells Point. Today is Jerry’s birthday, and while he is gone, his music still remains with us, and it is a big influence on Dropping Sully. J.J. Cale passed away recently, and his songwriting touched a lot of people (including Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Waylon Jennings all of whom covered his tunes). We’ve been playing Cale’s ‘Lies’ at our live shows for a few years now, and it is always a fun time for us and the crowd.
Here’s an acoustic version of Scarlet Begonias that Chris and Andy did a little while ago.

The groove is indie-disco and lyrically this song looks at the life of an outlaw trying to run away from his crime, but keep his family intact. It’s a cut from our first record Trainwreck, ‘Ruby’ was shot live at The 8×10 in Baltimore by McNair Video LLC. Thanks to Justin Rockett for the sonic engineering.

Dropping Sully is in the studio working on a couple of digital 45′s that we’re going to release later this summer. We’ve been working with different producers and engineers to find the right fit for the material and having a blast in the process. Last night we were working with the Grammy-nominated Jamie Cerniglia and some fine fellows at The Sheffield Institute for Recording Arts.
Here’s a new live video from our Unvarnished CD Release show earlier this year at The 8×10 in Baltimore.

Wednesday, May 29th, Dropping Sully will be returning to the legendary 8×10 club in Baltimore. We’ve got some new material that we’re debuting. Come see why one reviewer from Vents Magazine described our latest live EP, ‘Unvarnished‘, as “by far the catchiest, most interesting unsigned live record I ever heard”. Here’s a new song that Chris and Andy sat down and recorded with their acoustic guitars: Last Greyhound Out of Los Angeles. We’re pretty sure they’ll be playing it at The 8×10.
