The Gayle Harrod Band is nothing less than a force of nature...a dynamic, full-powered and versatile combo of seasoned, professional musicians performing a variety of Blues, Soul and R&B, both vintage and current as well as offerings in the Pop/Rock and Jazz genres.  

Gayle Harrod is a relative newcomer, but quickly building a name for herself in the Baltimore / D.C. and Northern Virgina music scene.  Gayle has been fronting bands since 2011 with Soul and Blues band, “Triple Shot”, Classic Rock and Blues band, “Blues Deluxe” and Blues R&B band Shakedown before bringing together some of the best musical talent in the area for The Gayle Harrod Band.

Gayle has shared the stage with legendary Boogie Woogie Piano man Daryl Davis, and Chicago Bluesman Lurrie Bell as well as being mentored by the likes of Gaye Adegbalola of Saffire Uppity Blues Women and Resa Gibbs of MSG Acoustic Blues Trio.  She has performed on stages large and small including the 2016 D.C. Blues Festival at Carter Baron Ampitheater and Bethesda Blues and Jazz supper Club. 

With vocal performances that are moving, heartfelt and powerful, whether she’s belting out her own interpretation of a decades old Blues standard or channeling the style of an R&B icon, she is equally at ease.  Gayle commands the stage with versatility and dynamic control that captivates audiences.   Her raucous, and gravelly vocal style, reminiscent of greats like Etta James and Koko Taylor, makes people sit up and take notice.  Her warm, soulful tone and smooth, uplifting R&B vocals gets them grooving on the dance floor with some Aretha and Gladys Knight.  But it’s the raw emotion of an intimate ballad that she feels right down to her soul that connects her with her audience on a personal level, always leaving them wanting more and garnering both fans and accolades wherever she goes.  

Joined by Stan Turk on Guitar, Dennis Michaels on Bass, and Chuck Ferrell on Drum, The Gayle Harrod Band most often performs as a four piece combo, but are by no means limited to that format.  They have deep well of immensely talented “go to” musicians that can be called upon to join the group on Keys and Sax if the venue and budget allows.  Although they prefer to have the fuller sound of a 6 piece band and the complementary sound these instruments add to their music whenever possible, they realize that it doesn’t work for every venue or every budget, so they have organized themselves in the most versatile way possible to make their show scalable and accommodate the needs of any budget, event or venue.  Tell them what you need, and The Gayle Harrod Band will make it happen with an unforgettable event that will rock your world with their momentous sound, solid, engaging performances, professional musicianship, a fun and and diverse play list that will have both young and old dancing all night, and a vocalist who is one of the best kept secrets in the MD/DC/VA area…but won’t be for long!
