Blues, Soul, R&B, Pop/Rock, and original music that inspires, connects and captivates, but most of all it will MOVE you. The Gayle Harrod Band’s momentous and soulful sound is the work of powerhouse vocalist, Gayle Harrod, supported by the solid, engaging instrumental performances, rich vocal harmonies and professional musicianship of her band: Stan Turk on the Guitar, new addition Kevin Walker on Bass and Check Ferrell on Drums. A diverse, fun and eclectic play list of both covers and original music, spanning multiple genres, will have everyone dancing all night long. Their original songs, are fun and upbeat, but also intimate, revealing and deeply personal expressions of universal themes of love, loss, tragedy, resilience, heartbreak, vulnerability and above all,  strength and triumph over adversity, delivered with a raw intensity and emotional honesty that resonates with audiences. 

The Gayle Harrod Band most often performs as a four piece group, but are by no means limited to that format. Keys and Horns can easily be added when the venue and budget allows. We have intentionally created a band format that is flexible and scaleable to work with any event, venue or budget. 

Among her most memorable performances, Gayle has shared a stage with Chicago Bluesman Lurrie Bell at Rosa's Lounge in Chicago,  and opened the 2016 D.C. Blues Festival at Carter Baron Ampitheater with DC Mudd.  She has also performed with legendary Boogie Woogie Piano man Daryl Davis at Bethesda Blues and Jazz supper Club, AMP by Strathmore and The Birchmere. 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 is reminiscent of greats like Etta James and Koko Taylor, and her smooth, soulful tone and 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.  Come see for yourself what everyone is talking about!
