Grievous-Angles-Moondogs-Pub-EventPittsburgh’s Grievous Angels bring a unique blend of American roots, rock and blue-eyed soul to every performance. Their heart-felt originals are blended with timeless classics by Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Ryan Adams, Wilco, Son Volt, Jay Farrar, Lowell George, the Louvin Brothers and other seminal artists. The band has headlined weekend shows at many of Pittsburgh’s most prominent music venues for the past 15 years, and has been featured in Pittsburgh Magazine and the City Paper.

Pittsburgh’s Grievous Angels are keeping alive a music genre very few other Pittsburgh bands currently are. If you get it, you know what it is. Hear their music at

The Band:
Bob Neville – Lead Guitar, Vocals,
Scott Webster – Keyboards, Acoustic Guitar, Vocals
Johnny Louch – Bass Guitar, Vocals
Stacy Innerst – Drums, Vocals
Pete Freeman – Pedal Steel Guitar

(Disclaimer): Pittsburgh’s Grievous Angels have not recorded with any Brooklyn-based producers who also produce indie bands with annoyingly loud banjo players, nor have they been featured in any music videos shot in black-and-white around desolate railroad tracks or decaying Pittsburgh industrial sites, nor have any of their original songs been selected for any independent films shown at the Sundance Film festival.
