Alright Everyone! We are headed home to the place of our inception! Main Street Music Fest 2017 returns to Main Street, Ellicott City and so do we. We will be bringing the classic ‘Trainwreck’ lineup of Dropping Sully featuring Andy Hall on lead guitar and vocals, Ryan Geraci on bass and vocals, Tommy Smith on drums and Chris Wojtal on rhythm guitar and vocals. If that wasn’t enough for you we are also bringing our good friends and piano impresario, Mark Quinn for the whole shebang! We will be playing at the Antwerpen Toyota Wine Bin Stage at 4:30pm at the fest! Can’t wait to get there and see all you crazy cats again! Come early and stay late! See you in a couple weeks!
Check out our tunes on droppingsully.bandcamp.com!
“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.
