The Greybeards - EPs have been added the The Greybeards myspace (which can be accessed by typing "The Greybeards" into the Google search engine).

Cassidy and Cromwell have recorded as "The Howlin' Jupiters" in Nashville. These tracks will be featured on two LPs to be released in May 2009. *All songs on these LPs were written by Cassidy and Cromwell, therefore, The Greybeards play these songs as well.



After giving Larry Barnett some impromptu guitar lessons in 2004, Bob Cromwell recruited Brian Cassidy and James Janke to form The Greybeards. All were living in San Diego at the time, and after a year or so the band began gigging in Pacific Beach, Midway, Oceanside, El Cajon, and all over the County.

Jamming and gigging has been the primary purpose for The Greybeards, as all have "day jobs" to ensure that creating original music remains a sustainable adventure. Early audience reations to The Greybeards have been positive, so the fellers continue to gig and are now often recruited for the ever righteous "paying gig." Despite their modicum of success, The Greybeards are still down to play house parties and charity events. One of the most recent was the Orchids & Onions San Diego Architectural Foundation event (The Greybeards played as "The Howlin' Jupiters"-- a side project spearheaded by Cromwell and Cassidy).

Since August 2008, Cromwell has moved up to Ventura County due to family illness and employment as a National Park Ranger in the Santa Monica Mountains. This has created the opportunity for The Greybeards to play gigs in LA and Ventura County--and to check out the possiblity of playing elsewhere in California and the American Southwest.

The Greybeards music has been likened to likened to Link Wray, Creedence Clearwater, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, classic surfrock (Dick Dale/The Ventures), The Dead Milkmen, and other bands that may or may not be accurate comparison (depending on the relative perception of each individual's ear).
