Greta Van Fleet

Post by sfpcc » Thu Feb 01, 2018 2:15 pm

Has anyone out there heard of a band called Greta Van Fleet? They're from Frankenmuth and they are getting some attention, (they're playing two nights at the Filmore.) I heard them on WRIF about a half hour ago and they sound kind of Zeppish, (but not in an 80's Whitesnake, Kingdom Come way, it seems more organic.)

I really enjoy both singles I've heard so far. Their debut single came out several months ago; the second single came out maybe 45 days ago.

WRIF, 89X and even Alt 106.7 play the band regularly. So does Sirius XM Octane. In fact, I heard their debut single on Octane two to three weeks before WRIF started playing it.

What's really wild is that the lead singer is a TEENAGER!!!

I look forward to hearing more songs from their debut album. This band has a lot of potential.


Memo to 106.7: Twenty-One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, FUN and Fall Out Boy all S-U-C-K!!! Stop playing those shitty (boy) bands, and maybe you'll end your streak of piss poor ratings!

They had a decent spread in Rolling Stone last month. Three brothers and a drummer.

Another interesting band with a similar sound, (kind of) that also seems to on the rise is Dorothy.

I heard a third single from GVF on WRIF a couple weeks ago; it was terrific. Might've been during Steve Black's weekly "Chop Shop" show. Heard it played on a Sunday morning.

They're pretty good. Yeah, the kid is trying to sound like Robert Plant, but any new rock music that doesn't sound like either Nickelback or Kid Rock is welcome anymore.

I don't change the channel when they come on... so... I guess they make acceptable noise.

They just graduated from high school. The band name was created when one of its members heard a relative mention Gretna Van Fleet, a resident of Frankenmuth; their use of the variation on her name was done with her blessing.


It's all about the money!

That's a cool story; I always wondered about the name.

The only thing that came to mind for me was the former cable news host, Greta Van Susteren.

:lol
