Dear B&G Family,
Your friendly neighborhood Sam RP here. First off, I’d like to give a big thank you shout out to everyone who has donated to our PledgeMusic campaign so far! We’re already at 16% of our goal but still have a ways to go, so if you haven’t joined our campaign already, hop on over to our PledgeMusic page when you can. Any pledge helps and all the proceeds go towards the recording & release of the new album. Don’t forget that any donation you make automatically pre-orders the album for you as well as other goodies available at different pledge amounts. We’ve also been updating the Pledge blog throughout the past two weeks and have posted a few fun videos up there, so head on over to the page when you can: http://smarturl.it/biscuitsandgravy
I wanted to update everyone with where we’re at in the process. The past two weeks have been very busy for us, in and out of our rehearsal space doing pre-production. Pre-production is essentially all the preparing we have to do before we get into the studio. Greg Teves, who recorded Hello Weekend, is working with us again for this album. Everyone in the band and him have been going back and forth, experimenting with the songs, trying out different tempos, different melodies and different forms of the songs, really ironing out all the details and trying every option until we feel we’ve reached the best possible, most danceable outcome. Last night we worked out a bunch of cool horn ideas (which you can see a quick 15 second snippet of on our Instagram page here: https://instagram.com/p/0F_u8zoBEa/), along with some new song endings and lyric ideas. It’s exciting to say that we’re pretty much done with all pre-production and will be going into the studio next week!
I’ll be taking plenty of photos and videos while we’re in the studio and will be regularly updating the PledgeMusic page with those, so keep an eye out for everything.
As always, thanks for all the love & support!
- Sam and the rest of the Biscuits & Gravy family
It’s been a long time coming but we’re extremely excited to announce that we are finally getting back into the studio to record our 2nd album! To help fund the project we have teamed up with a great company called PledgeMusic. And this is where you, our friends & fans, come in. Through PledgeMusic you can pre-order the album as well as purchase other exclusive content and unique opportunities. And here’s the important thing: all proceeds raised through our Pledge campaign go directly to funding this record, we simply can not do this one without you! We have to hit 100% of our goal to be able to complete the project, every little bit counts. We really hope that you will join us on this journey, it’s going to be a ton of fun!

The day has come. We’ve been busy writing and rehearsing all spring and we’re ready to kick the summer off with a bang, throwing down at The Middle East Downstairs! Our friends Viva La Hop will be co-headlining with us that night, making sure it’s the best show of the year. This is gonna be a big one and we want all of you to be a part of it! Make sure you buy your tickets early to secure a spot on the dance floor.
Middle East Downstairs-Cambridge

See you there!
Dear B&G Family,
As 2013 comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment to simply say thank you.
This past year has been one of great new opportunities for us. We’ve performed for new crowds, played at new festivals and schools, and been featured on new blogs and online series. We know none of this is possible without your love and support.
As we look forward to an exciting year ahead, our main focus will be sharing more new music and more good times with all of you: the people that keep the Gravy Train going.
We hope you enjoy some quality time with family and friends this holiday season, and we wish you all the best as you turn the corner towards 2014.
We’ll see you next year!
Dave, Sam, Evan, Mark, Ghost, Eric & Craig
We are very excited to be featured on FuseTV’s groundbreaking series: Behind the Unsigned!! In May, we spent a full day with a FuseTV film crew at guitarist Sam RP’s house in Newton. We dug back to our roots to discuss our songwriting process, what makes B&G’s sound so unique, and how we all came to know each other. We also threw in some back-flips, some backyard barbecue, and a preview of one of our newest tunes: Shine.
You can check the video above to get an idea of what life’s like from our perspective. This mini-documentary is just the first piece in a huge Summer and Fall push for the Gravy Train.
We’ve locked down nine tour dates, from Bangor, ME to Columbia, MD, so that we can share what we love to do with as many people as possible. Check out the tour page and mark your calendar! We’ll be serenading you soon enough…
Thanks to Frankie Leroux and his crew for coming out to film our show at the Hard Rock in Boston a couple weeks back. Here’s a little compilation video of the whole night that he put together. See you all at the next one!
We’re excited to announce that we will be joining this amazing lineup of artists at this years KahBang Music & Arts festival!

Hello friends! We haven’t updated you in a while so we wanted to make sure you knew what the Gravy Train was up to.
It’s been a busy few months for B&G – we’ve played shows in five states, rocked the stage with Wu-Tang legends and Nas affiliates, shared Hello Weekend with thousands, and started writing new material. We can’t wait to share it with you at a slew of upcoming shows in YOUR area. Check out some future events below and if you haven’t grabbed the record yet (seriously!?), head over to iTunes.
ATTENTION NEW YORK – Because we love our New York City family so much, we’re heading back to Sullivan Hall on Saturday, April 6th to treat your ears to some new tunes and some classic B&G material. Y’all know Sullivan Hall is our second home and since it’s been a while, we’re bringing some heavy-hitters with us. Our good friends Urban Sun will drop a dose of their funkiest jams on the evening and our new friends Nickel & Dime OPS are hip-hop prodigies not to be missed.
ATTENTION BOSTON – As Serenade dictates, we’re getting our chirp up and delivering a huge spring kickoff at the Hard Rock Café on Friday, April 19th. We’re going all out to welcome in our favorite season so call your Mom, call your Dad, call your ex-girlfriend and that weird kid you used to hang with in high school – no one should miss this show. Tickets are available in advance and we highly recommend you grab one or five before they sell out. Head over to our tour page to lock yours down today.
ATTENTION COLLEGE STUDENTS EVERYWHERE – We are thrilled to announce that we’ve joined the team over at The College Agency and yes, the name explains it all. Some of our best tour experiences have been Gravy Train stops at area colleges so it’s only fitting that we start rocking campuses all across the northeast. We’ll post dates as we lock them in but expect us in your area real soon. Want to see B&G at your school? All you have to do is ask! Head over to our contacts page and drop us a line – we’ll be there.
This is going to be a huge spring for us and we couldn’t be happier to share it with all of you. So get dust off your dancing shoes, grab your friends and get ready for the get-down. We’ll see you all very soon.
