Pan and the GD’s are an alternative americana group whose music can be described as ‘sophisticated hobo music’ or ‘adventure music.’ They are an uncompromising group of individuals who produce accessible scenes of sound. They run the gambit, turning styles in and out like skateboarders turn tricks. Michael Pan is the band’s songwriter and leader who claims that “writing songs is like rolling a smoke in the back of a pickup, you have to do whatever is necessary to accomplish the mission.” Other members include drummer Matt Farina who is solid, inventive and plays with a bullwhip precision. Bassist Chris Petryszak holds down the bottom like gravity. He has been called a theater jam man and is known to have partied in hotel rooms with the Dixie Chicks. Unlike most americana acts that only follow a country/blues feel, Pan and the GD’s don’t forget that jazz is a huge part of what it means to be American. Families are welcome and the music is free. It starts at 8pm.
