In 2015, the band released the self-produced album “Perkiomenville” to a sold-out hometown crowd at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. With such success, the group gained momentum, and in 2016, recorded the “Let it Down” EP, which includes the hit song, “Whiskey Hand.” The recordings were done with producer Bill Moriarty (Modest Mouse, Dr.Dog) and accomplished by partnering the release with Trevor Kerin, owner of Plug in Rewind. Since the release, CG has shared bills and stages with The Hooters, Turkuaz, Ron Gallo (Toy Soldiers), Cyrille Neville & the R.S.B., Felice Brothers, Ryan Montbleau, Peoples Blues of Richmond, Hoots & Hellmouth, Wild Adriatic and more while touring the Northeast, Midwest and all the way to Tennessee. The band has also headlined the Trocadero, World Cafe Live and Ardmore Music Hall while continuing to gain momentum in its home city of Philadelphia and the Northeastern region of the U.S.
In early 2018, the band performed live on I Heart Radio’s 104.5 FM, Philadelphia’s Alternative Rock Station. The band’s newest EP, “Black Champagne,” was released in May 2018 by Mad Dragon Records, with a tour that followed. Chestnut Grove joined the Nimbleslick Entertainment Roster last year and has been back in the studio with songs ready to be recorded. Be on the lookout for NEW music coming soon!
