Gulley will perform May 3rd at 6pm at Springfest.  Springfest is an all day even held in Washington Park with bands perform throughout the day.  All ages are welcome, and the cost is free.

Chad Nance, writer for Camel City Dispatch, reviewed our album Salem.  In short, he really likes it.

What we have here, friends and neighbors is an album. Not a CD. Not simply a collection of some songs that the band has been working up live for the last few months, and definitely not a demo. Gulley’s recently released, Salem, is a strong and cohesive work of songwriting and studio craft that is a triumph for the young band and further evidence that there is a real rock music scene percolating under the surface here in Camel City.

Whew!  We’re still slowly floating down from our CD release show at the Garage.  That was the most fun we’ve had on stage.  Hopefully it was something special for you too.

And now it’s already time to reflect and relive it!

Chris Smith of SongwritersSolutions.com wrote a very thorough and lively review of the entire 2014 Triad Music Festival.  It’s worth the entire read, but since this is our website, here is what he had to say about our performance!  We really appreciate his glowing review!

Closing the show was local rock band Gulley. This event was extra special for the band and for the band’s followers because this show marked the release of their new album “Salem”. I felt a little like an outsider because it became apparent standing along the back wall of the Garage that I was the only person in the building who was not familiar with the band. They had a large loyal following that ate up every bit of new music the band gave to them. Song after song, Gulley delivered. By the end of the show, I was no longer a stranger in the back, I felt like part of the family.

Now for onto the video!  Film maker Jack Pennington once again created another beauty.  As you all probably already know, Jack created Camel City Chaos: the making of Salem.  He also captured our gig at the Garage.  This little video really captures our emotions during and right after our show.  Thanks Jack!

As always, you can see more press and videos in our Press Coverage and Videos sections!

Last night, we were featured on the podcast the Less Desirables.  The show discusses music, sports, TV, movies, technology and beer! They invited our producer Liz May to discuss the Triad Music Festival, which we will feature us at the Garage Friday night.  Liz then asked if we wanted to be on the show, and we gladly accepted!

The entire night was a blast.  The crew and Liz were very gracious as they played “Could You Help Me Out” and then let us ramble about Salem.  They even let us talk about Sunday’s NFL playoff games and movies.

Finally, we are happy to let you know we will be back on the Less Desirables to do an acoustic performance!  A date will be set soon.

Later, our good friend Shana Whitehead was interviewed by WFDD’s David Ford and Triad Arts.  Shana is the owner of the Muddy Creek Cafe.  We love playing there, we love the food, we really love the people and we love how the Cafe is really become a place were people come to listen to good music.  The entire segment is a little more than four minutes, so we suggest you listen to all of it, but if you are short on time, we are mentioned around the 3:02 mark.  Click HERE for the interview.

Finally, Liz May (yes, the same Liz May who engineered, produced and mixed our album Salem) was on the Camel City Dispatch News Hour promoting the Triad Music Festival.  Since we are also releasing our album at her festival, she made sure to mention it!
Around the 56:30 mark Liz May enters the broadcast!

Originally, we planned on releasing Camel City Chaos: the Making of Salem on Friday, January 17th.  However, it is so good, we must release it a week early.  On Friday January 10th, we will release the link TO THE WORLD.

Film maker and Winston-Salem resident Jack Pennington created the video.  He combined raw archival footage, interviews and the music from Salem to reveal the story, creation and meaning of Salem.  To view Jack’s other documentaries and videos, visit Tell Stories, Change the World.
