Sister Hazel, Florida’s sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
The band was formed in Gainesville in 1997 by Ken Block (lead vocals and acoustic guitar), Jett Beres (bass and harmony vocals), Andrew Copeland (rhythm guitar and vocals), Ryan Newell (lead guitar, slide guitar, and harmony vocals), and Mark Trojanowski (drums). The band is named after a local missionary (Sister Hazel Williams) who ran a homeless shelter and when on tour, the line up also includes Dave LaGrande on keyboards and saxophone. Their musical style is best described as a blend of alternative rock, Southern rock (a subgenre of rock music that developed in the Southern United States from rock and roll, country music, and blues, and is focused generally on electric guitar and vocals), jangle pop (subgenre of rock music that originated in the 1960s and features trebly, arpeggiated picking - typically on chiming electric twelve string guitars or 6 string guitars, often employing a capo and chord inversions - together with straightforward song structures), and folk rock (a style that arose in the United States and the United Kingdom around the mid 1960s, pioneered by the Los Angeles band the Byrds, who began playing traditional folk music and songs by Bob Dylan with rock instrumentation, in a style heavily influenced by the Beatles and other British bands). They’ve released 9 studio albums and 17 singles.
