Gerle Haggard Band brings the best of Merle Haggard’s timeless music to dyed in the wool fans while introducing his well known hits, obscure singles and early work, as well as The Hag’s own carefully chosen covers, to a whole new audience and the next generation of Outlaw Country and Western Swing listeners. This eight-piece ensemble features a terrific line-up of musicians who weave original instrumentation, tight harmonies and a big heap of showmanship into a full-throttled entertainment event – whether live or recorded.
We currently have three solid hours of material and are available to perform from one to three sets for clubs, festivals, benefits or house parties. One note: Gerle Haggard Band is not a traditional party band in that we only play Merle Haggard music, either songs The Hag has written or covered.
