Memphis Crawl Set to Rock the 10th Annual Great South Bay Music Festival Sunday, July 17th

Memphis Crawl Set to Rock the 10th Annual Great South Bay Music Festival Sunday, July 17th

With New Album On the Way, The Band Will Bring Their East Coast Southern Rock to Patchogue Along with More Upcoming Long Island and NYC Dates

 

Patchogue, NY (July, 2016) — With the 10th Annual Great South Bay Music Festival set to take over Patchogue’s Shorefront Park in just a few more days, New York’s own Memphis Crawl is set to rock closing night on Sunday, July 17th at 7:30PM on the Jambalaya Stage! This Northern rock outfit with a distinct Southern charm is set to rock just prior to Legendary singer/songwriter Graham Nash on the heels of their forthcoming album. (More Upcoming Dates Below)

 

Described as “Bluesy”,”Ballsy”,”Soulful” and “Convention Defying”,  Memphis Crawl was formed in 2004 by charismatic frontman Matty O’Brien on the blue-collar streets of New York City. The son of a counter-culture mother from Brooklyn and a country-blues bred outlaw daddy from the South, Matty was raised on a strict diet of rock ‘n roll and delta blues and even as a small child it was clear that this “old soul” was a natural performer. Soon after putting the group together, Matty found some of the “heaviest cats around” in guitarist Bryan Stevens, bassist Slim Vincenti, and percussionist Michael Powder.  From their first jam session together it was obvious that their collective energy and chemistry was truly something special and a once-in-a-lifetime gift. The four piece powerhouse has toured all over the U.S. from NYC to Los Angeles and parts of Europe, and their fan base–known as “The CrawlDogs”–have become a huge funky family almost a cross between a counterculture commune and a traveling circus. With O’Brien’s Jim Morrison-esque persona, a stage presence and vocal delivery that meets the raw emotion of Joe Cocker, and a sound reminiscent of bands like My Morning Jacket and the Black Crowes- a glimpse at their live show can truly display to any hard core rock ‘n roll fans why their motto is “play like it’s your last night on Earth!!”.

 

 

Upcoming Performances:

 

Sunday, July 17th @ Great South Bay Music Festival, Patchogue, NY

 

Wednesday, August 3rd @ Pianos, New York, NY

Thursday, August 18th in the All Music Inc. Lounge @ The Space at Westbury, Westbury, NY

 

With more upcoming dates on the way and a trip into Suffolk Recording Studios planned to record new music, it seems Memphis Crawl’s star is only continuing to shine brighter as they gear up to rock the Jambalaya Stage at the 10th Annual Great South Bay Music Festival Sunday, July 17th at 7:30PM!
