“The Grand Ole Uproar is to the North Carolina Piedmont what the Gourds are to Texas: musicians that evoke a place, a time, and a feel.”
“…a rolling thunderous New Orleans flavored musical Po’Boy with country psychedelic seasoning…”
“… heavy on the Dylan, and country, but the kind the Rolling Stones used to do.”
The Grand Ole Uproar’s musical gumbo conjures up the Texas twang of Waylon Jennings and Doug Sahm, the electric carnival of Dylan, the improvisational impulses of the Grateful Dead, and the laid-back swampy sound of J.J. Cale, as well as many other(and older) songs and artists in the American tradition.
The Grand Ole Uproar frequently tours the Southeast and Midwest, and has shared the stage with artists like Grammy Award winning Texas trio Los Lonely Boys, The Hackensaw Boys, PALEFACE, The Southern Gothic, Drunken Prayer, The Deadstring Brothers, The Corbitt Brothers, A Boy Named Banjo, Empire Strikes Brass, Cosmic Charlie, and the Straight 8s.
The Grand Ole Uproar performs “Down in the Town of the Swamp Fox on the Gray Room Sessions.
