Gold and the Rush is a neo-americana southern rock and roll band. The band trudges through rolicking, foot-stomping sets, inviting their local following to do away with the day gone and sway (or absolutely rage) to the melodic, vintage tones captured in their songwriting.

Biography

Gold And The Rush is a young, southern rock and roll band based out of New Orleans, LA. The four friends formed over their mutual desire to perform quality songs, and since then have largely integrated into the New Orleans music scene, performing for their growing fan base. Gold and the Rush has played many local venues and often tours regionally, and has been in- cluded in PASTE Magazine’s list of top Louisiana bands to keep an eye on. With a Daytrotter Session already in the books, the boys are looking forward to releasing their most current record; a collection of carefully written songs that will be a launching point for whatever is to come.

Jake McGregor, the band’s frontman and primary songwriter, is focused on creating catchy, but meaningful material that keep fans singing along and leave listeners humming melodies in their heads. The new album, recorded at the highly regarded Living Room Studio in New Orleans, captures this operation and just might grab the attention of a wider audience.

While sitting tight and concealing their glee, Gold and the Rush is continually playing alongside larger acts such as The Walkmen, Star and Micey, Kopecky Family Band, Wheeler Brothers, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Gardens and Villa, Rebirth Brass Band, and more. They’ve also been requested by festivals including South Sounds (Mobile, AL), Ditch The Festival (Austin), Crawfest (New Orleans), and Foburg (New Orleans). Positive reviews and write-ups from local and nation- al publications (please see attached press section) are beginning to show up frequently and the band is motivated to keep up the current momentum. Come see us live and say hi. We’ll probably give you a bottle opener and have a nice talk, or something.
