Run and Gun

Run and Gun


This is the band you want at your college. Remember Otis Day and the Nights, from Animal House? This band is like that: Seminal. It screams college. Run and Gun perform a vast repertoire (currently at about 1,000 songs) drawn from all eras and areas of rock. You pick 'em, they play 'em.


The core of Run and Gun is Tim and Matt, playing together since 1995. Together, they've played about 600 shows. Together and apart, they've played thousands, over 25 years, with some of the top names in New England music, at virtually every music venue around.

There are lots of pub and cover bands around, but few like Run and Gun, whose shows are dynamic and highly interactive.

Taking inspiration from piano bars, like Jake Ivories, Run and Gun distributes song lists throughout the crowd, and provides pens and post-its for you to write your requests down. We do the rest, playing a steady barrage of your choices for hours and hours.

Perfect for colleges? Consider this. Together and alone, they've played Assumption College, Worcester State College, Clark University, Anna Maria College, WPI, Colby College, Southern Vermont College, Castleton State College, UMass Amherst, Stonehill College, and Northeastern University.

They've played fraternities, weddings, parades, Greek weeks, festivals, fundraisers, political events, birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations.

Set List

We draw from approximately 1,000 songs, classic to contemporary. We'll still be playing long after you've faded.
