THE BAND IS BOND is a collective of musicians playing the music, theme songs, and soundtracks from the timeless and ongoing library of the James Bond franchise. Each show will be a different journey through the secret agent's world with each musician giving their own spin to the music. With the Bond franchise stretching over 50 years there are few limitations to where this party can go. THE BAND IS BOND covers all eras of Bond music with but with emphasis on the 60's and 70's soundtracks. While the theme songs from the movies will be the crux of the repertoire, the instrumentals will be a sizeable portion of this creation.
For this special Brooklyn Bowl live debut, THE BAND IS BOND is encouraging attendees to come 'DRESSED TO KILL' as their favorite Bond or Bond Babe. Tuxes and evening dresses will make tis evening a SPECTREclee.

And more jam band superstars.
The album finds the critically acclaimed artist creatively invigorated. His accomplished and artistically intuitive bandmates simmer through a collection of sweetly soulful Americana and raucous roots rock that showcases Humphreys' elegant virtuosity and his heartfelt songwriting. The three-piece will be sharing this intimate and infectious new album on tour.
Music fans are familiar with Humphreys’ songs, voice and guitar from his years leading North Carolina faves Dillon Fence and Hobex. With songs influenced by the best in pop, funk, soul, R&B, and rock n' roll, you might find Greg Humphreys Electric Trio in the same idiosyncratic corner of the big Americana tent where you'd find Alabama Shakes, Chris Stapleton, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, or the North Mississippi Allstars.
The Electric Trio formed in 2014 in New York City. Drummer Keith Robinson brings Texas flavor, having toured and recorded with Marcia Ball and Charlie Robison. In demand bassist Matt Brandau has backed up Elvis Costello and Joan Osborne, among others. These seasoned southern transplants played over 130 live dates in their first two years, but they took their time to make a debut studio album.
Of the album Humphreys reveals: "The Lucky Guy LP tells a story of a happy time in my life - I met an amazing woman, moved to NYC, had a son, and got married. This album is also a manifestation of our trio's musical relationship." Select highlights from the eight-song release include the slow-burn R&B track "Crosstown," the burly blues-rock instrumental "Golden Bone," and the sunshine-filled title track, "Lucky Guy."
