The Stadler Gibbons Band features the fabulous singing and playing of Mike Stadler and Mary Gibbons. Chuck Ervin drives the bass and Jon Mitguard butters it all up with steel.
Seasoned musicians all, they travel the common ground between early country and bluegrass, great story telling and picking. Along with classic material from the past, they include original songwriting and great works from other writers toiling today to produce tomorrow’s classics. The product is a soulful blend. The band features the clean, intricate harmonies of Stadler and Gibbons set on the firm foundation of Gibbons’ guitar and Ervin’s bass. In the spaces between, Stadler and Mitguard intertwine stunning melodies and improvisations whether on guitar, mandolin, pedal steel guitar or dobro.
"... a typically eclectic set on any number of instruments; [Michael Stadler] is one of those musicians who believes you don't have to be flashy to be good -- and he's much better than good." - Larry Kelp, East Bay Express
“[Mary Gibbons] is a strong, stylish singer, whether burning through some bluesy bluegrass or wearing out a country weeper.“ - Bluegrass Unlimited
