The Art Gomperz Band Featuring Jenna Mammina presents their new CD “A Different Story To Tell”
Honoring their late friend and incredible song writing talent, Bev Hahn, The Art Gomperz Band has done a stellar job of bringing Bev’s music into reality and is proud to present her words and music. A full house of ten original songs encompasses the breadth of Bev's song writing. From a strong backbone of bluegrass and country, Bev's writing also spans facets of ballads, swing and folk rock. “A Different Story To Tell” not only reflects well on Bev’s approach to songwriting but also to her perspective to life in general. Bev was a light in the darkness. A friend when you didn’t even know you needed one, a confidant and a musical powerhouse.
Bev’s partner of many years, Dan Geib, also brings new life and excitement to original Banjo & Flatpicking instrumentals and Jenna Mammina contributes not only her stellar singing talent but also her lovely collaboration for Inner Smile as well.
Spanning generations and centuries, the collective that has been known for decades as The Art Gomperz Band has taken an unexpected loss and proudly triumphed over tragedy by sharing with the world a celebration of music, life and eternal friendship.
For over 30 years, The Art Gomperz Band has toured the countryside playing its own unique blend of acoustic music. From the far north of Mackinaw Island, festivals in Owensboro, West Virginia and the Mountain Festivals of Pennsylvania to countless clubs and pubs across America.
Coming from the early days of anything goes Elvis Bluegrass to today's New Age Bluegrass, Swing Boogie and Acoustic Rock, Art Gomperz continues to fashion a truly alternative acoustic experience.
Art Gomperz provides a wide variety of music. From stylized originals by Bev Hahn to Traditional and New Age Bluegrass, Swing Boogie, Acoustic Folk Rock, and hot pickin’ Irish, Bluegrass & Dawg Grass instrumentals, The Art Gomperz Band brings you the best alternative acoustic experience.
Over the years, Art Gomperz is proud to have shared the stage with: Steep Canyon Rangers, Drew Emmitt, Pure Prairie League, Commander Cody, Jeanne Sealy, Peter Rowan, The Dillards, Little Jimmy Dickens, Ernest Tubb Jr., Black Oak Arkansas and a cast of thousands!.
