The Gary Douglas Band Announces Spring Tour Dates for New Album KEEPIN' FAITH

Powerhouse rootsy rock band THE GARY DOUGLAS BAND is having a good time sharing new music from their latest full-length album, KEEPIN' FAITH out now, with live audiences. The eclectic eight-piece ensemble--fronted by New York City-based vocalist, songwriter and guitar player GARY DOUGLAS--has just announced a series of new tour dates, including a rescheduled show at The Bowery Electric in New York City on Saturday, April 30 (the previously scheduled date was postponed due to Snowstorm Jonas).

KEEPIN' FAITH--a diverse mix of classic rock, Americana, country and blues--was released October 9 on iTunes. A recent album review by Relix dubbed DOUGLAS a "rock-and-roll troubadour, an intrepid journeyman whose sweat-drenched sound reminds one of the usual heartland heroes, Fogerty, Mellencamp and Seger chief among them...with his blue-collar ethic, and staunch determination, all faith is warranted." (2/3/16).

Elsewhere, Rachael Ciccone of The Aquarian noted "The combination of classic rock and country blues is assembled in the best way throughout NY-based band, The Gary Douglas Band's music" (1/5/16), while Elmore Magazine wrote "Gary Douglas may have strayed a bit off the musician's path for a while, picking up a law degree along the way, but he is a rock n roller through and through- and don't you forget it...this gives the song ["Out On The Highway"] a raw edge, filled to bursting with powerhouse vocals, from both Douglas and his backup singers. Interchanging solos on guitar and keys add a dash of spontaneity, well received by the swaying, cheering crowd. For being relatively new to the game, Douglas seems perfectly at ease and in command front and center." (1/11/16)

Every shred of feeling throughout KEEPIN' FAITH comes straight from the liberated heart of GARY DOUGLAS,the urgency of "My Desire," the restless summons to seek a better life "Out on the Highway," the explosive anger of "Lord I Try," the screaming release of "Stop Bringing Me Down," and the broken romance of"Goodbye Marie." Acclaimed album producer Anthony Resta (Elton John, Needtobreathe, Collective Soul, Guster, Perry Farrell, Nuno Bettencourt, Shawn Mullins, Sara Evans) was brought in to help tie the project together.
