Digital Stores & Future shows!
GRANNYGEARs (EP) “Down The Road And Back Again” will be released in all major online outlets worldwide in 6-8 weeks. This also means streaming on sites like "Pandora" will be possible as well as purchases made directly from our MySpace music player. If you would like to stream GRANNYGEARs new (EP) from your PC, XBOX 360 or enabled device head over to: ( The purchase links will be dead until the projected digital release date, which is December 1st!

October 31st we are playing in a huge field, (location to be disclosed this week) for the “White Trash Halloween Bash”, which around 500-1000 people are to be expected. This will also be our physical (EP) release, so we plan on some hush, hush things, but you have to be there to find out.

GRANNYGEAR has a private birthday party in Allen, Texas tomorrow night for about 100 guests, which should be a great time with good food. The show Sunday night with national act “Adakain” ( “His Name Was Yesterday” ( will be a good one, but will likely be the last time GRANNYGEAR plays Skillman Street Bar this year. By the way, “STEMM” ( has jumped off of the “Ride or Die” tour, due to their transportation blowing an engine and the promoter left them to their own demise. This is very unfortunate, as GRANNYGEAR was looking forward to playing with them. If you watch UFC on television, they are the band behind the theme song. Maybe we can set something up with them in the near future.

This coming Monday, October 19th, direct your browsers to: (
Tupelo Jo has a huge store in Florida and she likes us so much she is showcasing GRANNYGEARs tunes all day on her website from every page. She has thousands of pages and thousands of great customers. Maybe you will find something amazing there to gift wrap for Christmas!

November 14th brings GRANNYGEAR to the Curtain Club which should be a great time for everyone as we will be recording this show to later broadcast online for those who do not live near downtown Dallas.

GRANNYGEAR is in talks with “Sister 7”(, about opening a reunion show @ Trees in Dallas for them! Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open for that show to be posted, it will be the best show you see in Dallas for sometime.

That is it for this weeks update, we will try to get some new things brewing for you next week.

Welcome Bassist Donnie Selby!

We finally finished our starting line up, time to get busy. We went through very few Bass Auditions surprisingly. Last Thursday, August 6th, our Guitarist and Band Leader, Brandon got in touch with a guy on craigslist and he was basically ready to come see what we had going on that night.

He arived shortly after we all got to Brandons house and we kind of "Shot The Shit" if you will, for a little while. We found out that moment that he (Donnie) had just moved here to Texas a week before from Grand Rapids, Michigan. This imidiately sent good signals to us as it would be a totally fresh start for both of us and carry with it a sense of urgency.

Donnie went on to explain that he had been in 2 pretty successfull projects in Michigan, he was also around our age requirement and had the experience for a player such as ourselves. It seemed that also business wise, this guy was on the same page in the same book as us. After we talked for a bit exchanging influences, experiences and what not, we played through the set for him. He seemed to take to it and decided to go get his rig and bass and join in to see what would mesh.

We got him set up and ran through the set one more time, bells and whistles started to ring and yawn as he would have most of the riffs figured out before the 1st time through was over. We knew then we had someone that also shared the "Ear" for music and could likely improvise very well, which also says that they are creative in the writing proccess.

We finished the set and then went outside to sit and chat some more as Donnie set out to depart from the audition. We both had another audition or 2 to decide what was right for him and us, so we agreed on a phone call for a 2nd audition would be in order. Come the following Tuesday, we received a message on our MySpace, that he would be there that night. We replied with a "Hell Yeah, Come On Down"!

It was a pretty good moment as he walked through the door that night, as I think all four of us knew that we had all found that right situation that showed a lot of promise and future. The rest will soon be history as we unfold time upon itself and create a new magic that will hopefully never be forgotten.
