“My dad turned me on to Steve Clayton Acetal Tear Drop pics when I was 5 years old! I have not used any other pic in the 9 years I’ve been playing guitar! You know how many times my mom pulls out my Steve Clayton pic’s from the dryer? I got to stop leaving them in my pockets.” – Salvatore Grande
With an industry immersed in power pop, slick production, and samples, samples, samples….it is great to see a pure rock and roll band perform live and light up an audience. It’s even better when that band is 12-14 years old.
Giffords Lane is fast making a name for themselves as one of the next big things to come out of the northeast coast. Collectively, Giffords Lane is reaching 2 million views on Youtube and their fan base is growing rapidly. With their 3rd album Just Enough recently released on iTunes, impressive sellout shows at The Bitter End, The Count Basie Theater The Stone Pony and The State Theater, plus an ever growing legion of fans, the future belongs to GIFFORDS LANE.
In 2013 Giffords Lane opened for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis at the Skate and Surf Festival held in New Jersey; for Quiet Riot at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and for Carly Rose Soneclar from ‘The XFactor’. To date Giffords Lane has played over 200 shows! On October 5 2013, Giffords Lane made history when they performed live at the St. George Theatre on Staten Island. Giffords Lane was the youngest band to headline the St. George Theatre in its 84 year History!
During the winter of 2014, Giffords Lane put together their 3rd mashup by combining Katy Perry’s ‘ROAR’ and Aerosmiths ‘Sweet Emotion’. A music video soon followed!
