Hired Hand Brewing Co. welcome the Grift to the Vergennes Opera House on August 11 for an evening of booty-shaking grooves and tight vocal harmonies. The Grift will also be bringing along their horn section for this very special evening of brews and booty-shaking. Doors at 8.
The core of the Grift— guitarist/vocalist Clint Bierman, bassist/vocalist Peter Day, drummer/bassist/vocalist Jeff Vallone, and Andrew Moroz on keys — have been playing together on the central Vermont music scene and beyond for almost 20 years. The Grift has serious musical and songwriting chops. Peter Day won a recent Vermont-wide songwriter contest, and Clint Bierman co-wrote “I’m On My Way” for the Shrek 2 soundtrack. Jeff Vallone (classically trained, no less) has at least one symphony under his belt. And Andrew Moroz has toured and recorded with Trey Anastasio, Phish, Anais Mitchell, and Jennifer Hartswick, and has shared the stage with Carlos Santana and Dave Matthews.
