TGIS – East Coast Turnaround
Hailing from working-class roots in Jeannette, PA, the music of East Coast Turnaround chronicles the struggles of people in their hometown and region. The “Fathers of Trucker Rock” have introduced their own brand of rock, blues, country and soul while performing with such acts as ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tesla, Bret Michaels, Leon Russell, Donnie Iris, Charlie Daniels, Night Ranger, Rusted Root, Blackberry Smoke, Granger Smith, Chris Knight and The Marshall Tucker Band.
With the release of their album “American Outlaw”, they developed a regional radio audience as well as a national internet radio audience. Their first single, “Where’s My Sunshine” peaked at #3 on the Cashbox Charts, followed by 2 additional charting singles (“Only You” and “Neon Church”).
Their live shows mix original music with a wide variety of crowd-pleasers from R&B to country to pop to hard rock. The diversity of their influences are fully on display in their original music as ECT mixes all of their Americana influences into the brand of “Trucker Rock” which has been exciting audiences for over a decade.
