Hi Everyone! We are excited about playing for the annual Halloween party at the 'Page this coming Saturday night. It's sure to be a gas! We hope to see all our good friends and fans there. We have been working on more new material, including some classic Halloween tunes that should be a lot of fun. It would be great to see you there!

Greetings friends and fans... Wow, it's been a busy few days! We had a bit of a break the 2nd half of the summer due to band members' family vacations and travel plans, so we took a break from gigging in August and the first half of September. But now we are back at it in a big way! Played at the Stone of Accord in Missoula on the 15th... thanks to Jessica and the gang there for the warm welcome and kind words. The restaurant was rockin'! Seems like they'd like us back there in the future sometime. Swanee's was fun on the 16th also. Lots of good vibes and dancing! Getting ready for the Jeanette Rankin Peace party on Sunday. It'll be fun to play at Caras Park and help support the work they do at the Center. We will have a special guest musician that day, too... You'll just have to show up and see who the mystery player is! Hope to see everyone at the Idle Spur in Dayton on October 15th at 9 pm. Enjoy this beautiful Montana fall weather!

Hi there friends and fans... Gladys is on vacation! Several band members are traveling with their loved ones at the moment, so we are taking a brief break in performing. Our next show will be at the Idle Spur in Dayton, MT on August 20th. Be sure to stop on by and shake that thang.... We are now featured on MontanaBands.com.... if you like our stuff, please consider visiting, then scrolling down and leaving a review at: www.montanabands.com/gladys-friday/ .... Another piece of news is that we are playing at Caras Park in Missoula, under the big tent on September 18th from 4:00-5:00 pm for the Jeanette Rankin Peace Center's Annual "Peace Party" event. Only an hour, so be sure to get there in time. We are planning a special setlist appropriate for the event, with a few surprises. Other gigs in the works right now... should be a fun summer-fall season. Thanks for all your support, and see you soon!

Hi good people! Summer has been a blast so far. We have been able to play some fun and different gigs lately... Had a great time at the 44 Bar / Outwest Grille in Charlo-St. Ign.... We played on an old flatbed trailer with some plywood on it... made for a great stage on a beautiful evening. Thanks to Tami and others at the 44 for having us. 101 Main was a great gig, also... lots of great folks in the audience, including special guest visitor Jason Derlatka. Jason is a Missoula guy who now lives and works in L.A. He is the musical director for the TV show, "House". He got up and did several songs with us that night.... what a talented guy. We have a few weddings this month... should be fun... and will be back at Swanee's on July 22... which happens to be Kelley's birthday. Hope you can come out and celebrate her special day with us. Enjoy the Montana sunshine, and see you soon!

We had a full house and a lot of fun at Swanee's last night.  It was great that we had such an awesome night while Kelley's parents (who drove all the way out here from Michigan) were here. A couple of overly energetic customers had a little TOO much fun, but we kept the train rolling through it all just fine. OK, so I have a question for y'all.  it occurred to Dave and I, as we were talking recently... we do so many different genres in this band. We'll play a reggae tune, followed by a White Stripes song, then Buffalo Springfield, then a bluegrass tune, followed by  a blues standard, and then Johnny Cash, then Aretha. So. Is this a good thing? Or is it just damn confusing? Our gut feeling is that it's fun to mix it up... folks usually like a variety of music (as do we), but... is it weird? Just wondering. If you are inclined to weigh in on this profound question, feel free to click on the "Add Comment" link below and leave your opinion. Anyhoo... thanks to all our friends and fans for coming out last night... hope you had as much fun as we did!

Friday night show!
Got plans for Friday night? Hope they include us. We are performing at the Sportspage in Polson at 9:00 pm this Friday, May 27th. Come out and shake that thang! Hope to see you there. Bring your friends and their friends and... well , you get the idea.

April 28, 2011 

GF will be rockin' at the Sportspage Lounge on Saturday, April 30 at 9:00. Hope you can make it... Come shake off those cool weather blues and help usher in Spring 2011! We have been putting some cool new songs on our setlists, and we just might try a few of those out this Saturday night. See you then!

April 2, 2011 

Wow! what a fun gig. We really had a good time at the Sportspage last night. It's always great to see our friends out there dancin' and having a good time. The place was full and rocking all night! I think spring fever was in the air Friday night, as folks were lettin' loose and dancing away those March blues. Next up? Not sure just yet. We've kinda been booking on the fly these days, which makes it tricky getting the word out in time, but that didn't seem to matter last night. Anyway, more gigs surely on the horizon... we'll keep ya'll posted... check back here when you can! Doug and Kelley are back full bore to SKC come Monday, so the relaxing break is coming to a close... but hey, June is only weeks away! Be sure to check out "Polson's Got Talent" at the Sportspage... it's getting down to the wire now... finals on April 16th! Got any other news you want to share? Send it to    gladysfridayband@gmail.com    and we'll get it on here. Thanks again to all our friends for coming out last night, and have a great weekend!

March 30, 2011 

We will be playing this next Friday night April 1st at the Sportspage Lounge in Polson... glued right onto the bowling alley, at 9:00 p.m. If you can make it, we'd LOVE to see you there. Bring 60 or 70 friends and get a free Gladys Friday sticker to pimp your ride! So don't be an April Fool... come get your dance on!
