Greta Van Fleet

Greta Van Fleet. Forming in 2012, Greta Van Fleet is an American rock band from Frankenmuth, Michigan. Although we have mentioned them on a few occasions. Today they are our photo of the week.  This group of brothers with a family friend on drums, “aim to become the next generation of Rock n Roll” by dousing strong original tunes with 70’s classic rock elements.

Their 2017 EP Black Smoke Rising instantly appears on the Billboard 200 and their full-length album “Into The Fire”.  Dropping in October to high praise from critics and fans. By pleasing those who yearn for great classic rock music and exposing the newer generation to sounds of the past, this band could be exactly what we need!

Starting Out! 

Starting out, the four Greta Van Fleet band members Josh and his twin brother Jake Kiszka, younger brother Sam. As well as long-time family friend Danny Wagner. Meanwhile, they did a whirlwind of a world. After 246 sold-out tour dates in 13 countries over five continents, four consecutive #1 singles, an SNL appearance, a “Best Rock Album” Grammy Award, a personal phone call from Elton John who invites them to perform at his Academy Awards Viewing Party.

Not too shabby when you’re just starting out! Spring forward to 2021 and you can see the band releasing a new live video for ‘Heat Above’ – The new track also features on the band’s hotly anticipated ‘The Battle At Garden’s Gate’, set for release on April 16 via Lava / Republic.
