THE BAND

Greta Van Fleet is four young musicians, brothers Josh (vocals), Jake (guitar) and Sam (bass/keys) Kiszka, and best friend Danny Wagner (drums).  Josh and Jake have just turned 21, Danny and Sam are 18.  They’re all 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 (shared influences are Muddy Waters, Lightnin’ Hopkins, The Who, Jimi Hendrix), and were encouraged to be creative, daring and innovative.  Each band member has killer musical chops and Josh has a voice that is simply jaw-dropping.  The band is making some of the most exciting, high-energy, sweaty, sexy rock’n’roll heard in a long time, and are bound and determined to bring real rock’n’roll back to the mainstream.

 

With their debut single “Highway Tune” spending five weeks as the #1 track at Mainstream Rock radio, more than 3-million YouTube views for the companion music video, 5.6-million Spotify plays, their first-ever tour of the U.S. sold out, and spectacular praise from the media, Greta Van Fleet is - in just a few months - as hot a developing band as one can be.

PRESS QUOTES:

“Packing a Pantload of Zeppelin-esque riffs along with the unbridled energy of early Van Halen, the

Frankenmuth, Michigan-based quartet called Greta Van Fleet has stormed radio and streaming services in a way

that few rock bands have done in years.”  -- Guitar World
