The Herd of Main Street blends a soulful mix of Americana, classic country and classic rock n’ roll. Their music will “take the listener on a journey far outside the grip of the cold, grey city. This is the music of wind-swept country plains and stretches of open road disappearing into a distant vanishing point.” – Ray’s Realm. The full band is fronted by prolific songwriter Peter McKibben, who also plays guitar, harmonica, and piano. Other members include his wife Gena McKibben -(Vocals, Guitar, Slide guitar, Pedal Steel, Piano, Mandolin) Corey Zook – (Guitar), Kevin Alban – (Bass) and Lance Smith – (Drums).
They have been called “Baltimore’s modern-day version of The Band” by Fly Magazine and have released three albums, Hearts, Roads, and Tears, 2009, Seven Dollar Grave, 2011, Rust on Metal, 2013, and an EP entitled Bound to Echo, 2014. A new record, Heyday, is due out in August of 2017. All are available on itunes and select record stores.
“The Herd of Main Street is exciting, heart-pounding, cry-your-eyes-out-when-you-have-to, foot-tapping, soulful American music” –surfrhythm.com
