Craig Finn is the real deal, folks. All those stories you have heard him tell out about bar fights and stumbling across the streets of New York City really did happen and if you are lucky enough to hear the band, he will share all those special moments with you. Accompanied by band mates Bobby Drake (drums) Tad Kubler (lead guitarist), Franz Nicolay (keyboards, accordion, harmonica), Galen Polivka (bass guitar) have produced several critically acclaimed albums, the first of which, Almost Killed Me coined them as being next in line to the New York indie dynasty back in 2004. Their second album, Separation Sunday was released on May 3rd, 2005, and slapped listeners with the classic rock and roll battle between music and religion. Craig stretched himself to new levels of rugged debauchery and downright delicious music madness in pure rocker form. That’s right, The Hold Steady is here to stay.
