With Alan Munde’s recent retirement from his teaching position at South Plains College, one might expect him to slow down and relax. It seems slowing down is not in Alan’s plan.
I’m told Alan is interested in playing more dates, and so his band, Alan Munde Gazette, is gearing up for a more rigorous tour schedule. In response to that move, they have brought a new member on board.
Elliott Rogers has joined the band on guitar and vocals. Rogers replaces Phill Elliott, who recently left the band to focus on his capo business.
Here is a statement from the band about the addition of Rogers.
Elliott (Rogers) is a fine singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Albuquerque whom many of you probably know from his work with his own band, Elliott’s Ramblers. We played our first show with Elliott at Camp Bluegrass last week to rave reviews. We’re really looking forward to fully incorporating his lead and harmony vocals, strong guitar work, and original songs into the group.
