GPGDS New Video + Fall Tour

Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (GPGDS) just released their new video “Steady.” It was filmed during California Roots Festival 2015.

GPGDS kicks off their Fall Steady Tour tonight with special guest The Simpkin Project.

A message from singer-bassist James Searl:

This is a tour NOT to be missed by any Panda fan or live music fan in general. The Simpkin Project is one of our very favorite bands ever. We have been preaching about them for the past 10 years to all of you people. This is their FIRST EAST COAST TOUR! To make it even more special, Chris and James will be supplying the drum and bass! We are humbled to play some of our favorite songs ever with the band that wrote them. It is beautiful music that we are excited to share with friends, family, and fans.

We designed the tour to show Simpkin Project our favorite east coast hangs. We want to show them the fall foliage. We want to bring them sight seeing and eat our favorite foods in our favorite cities. But most of all, we want to introduce them to ALL OF YOU. East Coast Panda Fam where you at? Where are we gonna see you? Every night will certainly be a celebration. All Night Music.

Panda will be taking a several month hiatus after this tour to work on music and family. Get it while you can. Please spread the word, buy tickets in advance, and get to the shows early. We love you. PEACE!

I grew up in suburban Maryland just outside Washington, DC. My career in the music business began with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad. One weekend in the early 2000s I was visiting a friend at Ithaca College. He introduced me to James Searl (PANDA! bassist) and we instantly became close friends. I became a big fan of GPGDS, and as time went on my relationship with the band transitioned from fan/friend to online helper/volunteer. The band’s touring schedule got increasingly busy, and I helped organize and build their online presence, and mailing list.

I had a weekly radio show in college named Mixed Vegetables. I did more than 100 shows in my 2+ years as a DJ on WVUD 91.3 FM Newark, the voice of the University of Delaware. I played all kinds of music including underground and lesser known artists. My passion for spreading musical truth grew, and I eventually booked and promoted some concerts under the moniker Arugula Promotions. Proud to say I put on Giant Panda's debut concert in the state of Delaware!

In May 2007 I moved to Brooklyn, NY; shortly thereafter I founded Herbivore Publicity. The vegetable theme is a continual dream...
