Gully Boys Virtual Show

Wednesday, March 17 at 7:00pm
to Wednesday, March 31 at 11:55pm
Link
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Blue Devil Productions is proud to present Gully Boys! This live show will be available on our website, bdpstout.com, from March 17th to March 31st, 2021.

Gully Boys is a trio made up of Kathy Callahan (guitar, vocals), Natalie Klemond (bass, vocals), and Nadirah McGill (drums, vocals) based in Minneapolis, MN. The group formed back in 2016. They each learned how to play their respective instruments for the band, and, with much determination and enthusiasm, began to play countless shows. From headlining their own residency at the 7th St Entry to supporting other artists such as Soul Asylum, Third Eye Blind and Hippocampus. They have since been included on bills such as First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2018, and what were supposed to appear at First Avenue's 50th Anniversary, SXSW 2020 showcase, and Rock the Garden 2020.

Citing influences such as No Doubt and Hole, Gully Boys have crafted a sound that brings a new life to the nostalgic '90s grunge rock that is irresistible to many. They released their debut album, Not so Brave, in the summer of 2018. In the same year, they were named City Pages' number one “Picked to Click, Best New Band”. Most recently, they released a new EP, Phony, at the end of 2019. - currently on regular rotation on Seattle’s KEXP and Minneapolis’ The Current.
