Boss_Tweedy Posted July 21, 2021 Share Posted July 21, 2021 Anyone who knows of the Connells knows how criminally underrated they were in the late 1980s and the 1990s. They're back! Well, kinda. The Connell brothers, Doug MacMillan, and keyboardist Steve Potak are still in the band (along with a couple of new members), but singer/songwriter/guitarist George Huntley and drummer Peele Wimberley. They're releasing a new album this fall, and the first single from it is OK. Perhaps more exciting is that they're touring! Their live shows were always so good. One time in college my girlfriend at the time asked me to have dinner with her family on the night the Connells were playing in town. I went to the show and caught a good bit of flack. A couple of years later my girlfriend went with me to the show when the Connells passed through again. She was so blown away that she told me she, too, would've skipped dinner with her folks had she known how good they were live. https://www.theconnells.com 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
