Gang of Thieves is an unstoppable funky rock and roll machine! Hailing out of Burlington, Vermont, they are named one of the “Best and brightest of Vermont’s next generation” by 7days Dan Bolles. The heavy funk/rock group recently released their second studio album entitled "Dinosaur Sandwich Party" and is currently booking their third independent tour of the country. Hang on to your hats and get ready for an unforgettable live performance when this funky crew comes to town!
The Gang was formed in January 2009 when Michael Reit (Vocals) left college in Albany, NY to move in across the street from cousin Tobin Salas (Bass). Tobin's childhood friend Nick Wood (Guitar) had written music with Michael previously, and stepped up to the line, shaping a new heavy, dirty tone that cuts like a knife. High school buddy Cornelius Florucci joined the Gang soon after, bringing an explosive, original, driving force on the drums. A year later, the group of extremely dedicated friends and musicians bought a van, quit their jobs, sold their belongings, and left on a crash course independent tour of the country. They haven't stopped since.
A review of their new album "Dinosaur Sandwich Party" by John Powell praises: "It’s safe to say the Gang is intent on rocking full time, and screw the Man that says they can’t."
The Gang has now performed all over the United States, including a show in Albany, NY with big name artist Skid Row. From the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston, MA to the Humboldt Brewery in Arcata, CA, they have stolen hearts and been met with absolute enthusiasm everywhere they play! [+]
