The Runaway Grooms perform live at Buffalo Iron Works on Thursday November 9th, 2023!

The Runaway Grooms

Much like the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, and the Grateful Dead, The Runaway Grooms paint a spacious soundscape that expands in ever-widening circles, inviting us into warm, enveloping musical landscapes that traverse jazz, rock, and folk. Their newest album, This Road, captures the energy that the Colorado-based band brings to live performances, each song stretching out along a path filled with melodious meanderings and percussive pathways that dance around a central musical theme. With the tracks more or less recorded live in the studio, the true spirit of their music is revealed, one that reflects the musicians desire for their songs to live organically and for the flow of the band’s energy to be uninhibited; listening to the songs on This Road is like being in the front row at one of the band’s shows.

Cody Scott’s swirling keyboards create an atmospheric sound reminiscent of Skynyrd’s “Tuesday’s Gone” on the album’s opening track, “Jenny,” before Zac Cialek’s wheeling lap steel circles around and under Scott’s keys, all driven by Justin Bissett’s propulsive drumming and Zach Gilliam’s locked in bass groove. Adam Tobin’s vocals soar as the song spirals higher and higher, swooping in and out of various registers—minor chord instrumental bridges with piercing slide guitar solos and ethereal B3 strains—before fading out on shimmering organ notes. The expansive musical landscape is evoked through its emotional instrumentation and lyricism, one that tells the story of love, life, family, and the passing of time.
