Garage Rock w/strings
Greetings From Anywhere is what happens when you blend the musical resonance of a classically trained string section with the gritty, impromptu riffing of a good-old-time garage band. Based along the shores of the Hudson River in Dobbs Ferry, NY, the band first got together as the Pumpkin Seeds in 2007 for a one-time Halloween gig. They loved the music, so they just kept on playing, and as time went on they began to cultivate a loyal following. The band showcases classic staples of roots rock, rhythm and blues and bluegrass, as well as originals, with fresh, vibrant acoustic interpretations that feed on the melodic interplay between guitars, cello, violin, mandolin, drums and harmonic vocals. The end result is a unique and fresh sound that leaves the listener marveling at what this eclectic quintet can do.
