The Currys Music



Travel for the summer has commenced! We’ve started our month-and-a-half long jaunt around the country, which will see us play weddings and house shows and concerts from Florida to Michigan to New Hampshire. Many of the gigs over the month of June are private events, with public gigs sprinkled throughout. Some of the bigger shows are listed below; check out the “Shows” page for more details. Hope to see you out there! June 10 | Pickens Hall | Heuvelton, NY June…Read More

Back from the Boat!

Photo above shows Jimmy reading aloud to Sebastian on a private island in Belize. That’s right–Jimmy can read.   Hello, everyone! Long time, no talk! We’ve had a very busy February thus far, and I fell down on the job of keeping the blog updated. Mea culpa. Here’s a quick recap of the past few weeks: We spent the weekend before Valentine’s Day on the high seas with thirty other bands and 2,500 of the most enthusiastic music appreciators we’ve ever…Read More

Songwriting with a fury

If you’ve made it out to a Currys show in the past couple months, you no doubt have heard about the winter songwriting challenge and online concert series that we have planned. Here are the basics: We spent almost all of 2016 on the road supporting the release of West of Here. Performing and traveling was a blast, but it didn’t leave us with much time to write and develop new material. For the last few months of last year, we were pining for…Read More

Holiday tour in Florida

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We’re excited to spend time with family in Galen’s hometown of Potsdam, New York, for the holiday. There will be food and snow and board games–oh my!

11/6 Gainesville show open to the public!

We’ve gotten some questions about the show this coming Sunday in Gainesville. Yes, indeed, it is open to the public! We’ve been traveling a lot and neglected to update the website to reflect the change. The concert was earned by our dear friend Susie Lyons for her generous donation to our Kickstarter campaign last summer, but she has decided to turn it into a charity event open to the public. All are welcome! Details below: Venue: Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sanctuary Address:…Read More

We’re on a boat!

We’re going cruisin’! After a week of public voting, and then another week of private voting by cruise ticket holders, we were selected as one of three bands to win the Sixthman Soundcheck competition for a spot on The Rock Boat music cruise next February! Yeehaw! We’re thrilled to be included, and very grateful to everyone who cast a vote for us. We owe a very special thanks to Beth Gosnell, who got us involved in this community initially by inviting us to…Read More

As summer winds down, the tour picks up

Hello all! It’s been a while since we’ve spoken in this here blog space. The month of July saw us enjoy some much needed R&R in Florida with family. We had a few wedding celebrations, a couple birthdays, and a healthy dose of beach time. Now, feeling refreshed and just a bit wiser, we’re again on the road for an extended fall tour, which we kicked off in Tallahasse before making our way up to Charlottesville, Virginia, to play the Sprint Pavilion…Read More

Summer is here!

After a week off for a family wedding–a lovely, intimate affair that featured a few Currys performances, a beautiful beach-side ceremony, and a pair of 8 year-old nieces leading the entire wedding gathering in the Whip/Nae Nae–we are now back in action! It’s officially summertime now, and that means we Currys will be spending the bulk of our days in the Florida panhandle, with occasional excursions up and down the East Coast. Here’s a list of dates over the next couple weeks;…Read More
