The Band

There is no greater feeling for a musician to be “in the pocket” (when a group is playing perfectly on-beat, never missing a note or going off tempo in any way). Playing is learning, and not only learning your instrument, but learning the other musicians you’re playing with. A group that plays in the pocket is in tune with each other more than musically. It takes passion, dedication, commitment, and friendship. A band that can master these traits will convey it through their performances. GSR was formed out of a love for learning and playing music. With over a century of musical experience between them, these artists continue to learn from each other every practice and performance to be in the pocket, and bring the audience into the pocket with them. Each set list is carefully crafted to highlight each instrument throughout the performance, and each song choice means something to some member of the group. Playing certain musical standards is unavoidable, but when GSR plays covers they lean toward favorites that are known but less played, tunes that highlight skill, or are just flat out fun to play. Come out and join GSR not to SEE the experience, but to BE the experience.

Pete

Lead Guitar/Rhythm Guitar

California native Peter Gordon took hold of his first guitar in 1976, since then his life would never be the same. When it comes to his passions Pete says ”Creating, playing, and emulating music is an experience that cannot be described in words. I have never met anyone throughout my years that cannot be reached in some way through music.” After cutting his teeth on Rock, Blues, New Wave, and Funk he soon discovered other musical avenues to travel. Pete has worked as a studio musician and multi-instrumentalist on both the east coast and west coast; some of his tracks have made it to the airwaves and dance floors throughout Europe. All that aside, the intimate nature of live performance has always been the anchor of his love for the art of music.

Jonny

Bass Guitar

https://www.sixcowards.com

Merrimack’s Jonny C is a late arrival to the New Hampshire music scene. Bass was just one of a number of instruments he tinkered around with casually as a teenager, along with piano, drums, mandolin, and some years playing saxophone in the school band, but his creative urges went to the theater and when his first bass was stolen in New York, he didn’t replace it. Fifteen years later, between listening to the funky grooves of James Brown and the counterpoint melodies of Yes’ Chris Squire, he started craving the feeling of thick strings under his fingers again. Jonny bought a bass, began getting up at dawn to reteach himself the instrument, and soon was looking for jam partners. A rapid series of fleeting bands followed, including a two-year stint of heavy gigging in New Hampshire’s well-established classic rock trio, the Fuzzboxx. He also plays bass and guitar for Church of the Redeemer in Manchester and is the founder and front man of Six Cowards, a contemporary alternative-rock cover band. Outside of his musical life, he runs a long string of letters after his name and teaches history at Plymouth State University.

Vance

Drums/Percussion

Vance White “Blanco” has been playing since the age of 5 when he sat down behind the kit of his father’s band “White Heat” and saw his reflection in those old-school Remo silver dot drum heads. He played all throughout his school years in Charleston SC and was involved in every musical venture the system had to offer (marching center snare, principal jazz kit, orchestra 1st chair percussion). He played with bands “Anorexic Mosquito”, “SRA”, and later with “The Cool” which spanned genres from Punk to Metal to Classic Rock. While attending College of Charleston for Classical Percussion he’s played Tympani for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, The Charleston Community Orchestra, and was also a percussionist for hire for various area churches and other organizations. He was a jazz drummer for the College of Charleston pep band and a session drummer for many of the areas recording studios. His main influences are David Weckl (Chic Corea, Dave Weckl Band) and Tim “Herb” Alexander (Primus). Although Vance listens to a variety of music, his all-time favorite band is Pink Floyd. On any given day you may catch him listening to Jazz, Classical, Metal, or old school Funk. Despite the wide variety of influence his style is an established Funk/Rock Fusion.
