On Sunday, October 7th @ 1:30PM, DJ Nickel Hardaway airs his recent interview with bassist, Sam Kiszka, of the Michigan rock quartet, Greta Van Fleet. Together they discuss the band’s history, Sam’s love of vintage organ keyboards, and the band’s upcoming new album, Anthem Of The Peaceful Army.
Greta Van Fleet is four young musicians – twin brothers Josh (vocals) and Jake (guitar), both 22, younger brother Sam (bass/keys, 19), and longtime family friend Danny Wagner (drums, 19). All are from the tiny Michigan hamlet of Frankenmuth known for its family-style chicken dinners and the world’s largest Christmas store. All four were raised on their parents’ extensive vinyl collections which helped give birth to the music they make today: a high-energy hybrid of rock’n’roll, blues and soul.
2017, Greta Van Fleet’s first year as a professional band, was a wild ride of sold-out concerts in North America and Europe, glowing press, accolades from a slew of fellow artists from Elton John to Nikki Sixx to Justin Bieber, millions of YouTube video plays and Spotify streams, two #1 singles at Rock Radio and two #1 EPs, and most importantly, the genesis of an extraordinary connection with their fans.
