PETER GALLWAY & THE REAL BAND
With his return to Maine, the resurgence of The Real Band has been unstoppable, including wonderful receptions at St. Lawrence Arts and One Longfellow Square in Portland, The Frontier Theater in Brunswick, Slates in Hallowell, and the 207 Show on WCSH television. The Real Band is Peter Gallway on vocals and guitar, Mark Wainer (The Buffaloes, Berklee School of Music) on lead guitar and Andre Re (Jackson Browne, Garland Jeffries) on vocals and percussion.
Called “a master of free verse” in the Boston Globe, Peter Gallway has released more than twenty-five albums on the Warner/Reprise and various independent labels. He has also produced over fifty albums and special projects, such as the Grammy nominated Bleecker Street: Greenwich Village in the ‘60s, Time and Love: The Music of Laura Nyro, participated in Laura Nyro’s final album, Angel In the Dark, and produced all of the seminal albums by Maine’s own Devonsquare.
A founding member of The Fifth Avenue Band, Gallway’s music spans styles from ‘60’s rock and roll, to “jazzy folk”, to atmospheric Americana. Along with his solo recordings, he has collaborated with acclaimed singer-songwriter Annie Gallup in the duo Hat Check Girl, with seven releases to their credit.
2019 heralds the highly anticipated release of Reach For It, the all new Peter Gallway & The Real Band album on Gallway Bay Music.
