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.
An exciting weekend coming up! We are really excited to be a part of the Ellicott City Spring Celebration this Saturday April 20th!
This festival has been getting bigger and bigger every year and we are proud to be playing on the Tongue Row Stage with our friends and musical compatriots Sin 4 Sin, The Federal Hillbillies, Victims of Experience, Dirty Secret and Joey Harmon of Ghosts of Idols.
In addition to us there will be over 20 other bands across 3 stages. Beer gardens with local craft brew and wine at each stage and vendors all over the place. There is a free shuttle from various lots around town as well so plenty of parking! Huge thanks to everyone that is making this happen!
Check out the lineup for the Tongue Row Stage right here:

This song is about the Roman Emperor Claudius’ third wife Messalina. The context for the song is that she was pretty much running around on him all the time. Claudius kept turning a blind eye. She was going to have him killed, but her plot was discovered by a freedman advisor to Claudius. So you have this ex-slave taking down the most powerful woman in the world. An interesting juxtaposition for sure. The Emperor was still ambivalent about having her killed because he still loved her despite her cheating heart, but hey that’s how the Romans did things. Vinum consolatur confractum corda
Give it a listen below. This track was recorded live at The 8×10 in Baltimore, and is on our EP, ‘Unvarnished’. This track has gotten some airtime on 98Rock as well.

We’ve got some new live video coming so stay tuned. Until then, check out this video that Chris and Andy made a couple months ago.
We’ve got two fun shows this week. First, on Thursday, we’ll be back at Stan and Joe’s in Annapolis. And, then on Saturday, we’ll be headed into Second Chance Saloon. Both shows are going to feature our sound, which one reviewer described as “a funk ridden back beat and Jerry Garcia tinged vocals”.

Check out the review of our latest live EP, Unvarnished. It contained that little gem in there and had some other positive things to say about us. “All press is good press” as they say, but good press makes us feel warm and fuzzy.
Steve and Andy went into the 98 Rock Studios last for an interview. During the interview it was announced that Dropping Sully is 98Rock’s Noise in the Basement Band of the Month. (We also found out that Steve likes long walks on the beach, and Andy likes the ocean, but not the beach – a real conundrum). They played a cut from the latest live EP, Unvarnished. Check out ‘Messalina’ on our media player, or better yet catch it live.
Special thanks to Matt Davis, Vince Anderson and Shockwave Magazine for all the support over the years. Big thanks to all of our fans, friends, and family.
We’re going to be rocking out tonight at the Ottobar for Noise in the Basement, which is a new venue for us. Come on out and celebrate Lundi Gras with us. It’s also going to be Cody’s (from Sin 4 Sin) birthday. See you there!
