#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“The Dusty Gray Band is a powerhouse roots rock/country band hailing from the woods of New Hampshire. Led by Nashville songwriter Dusty Gray, the five-piece group has performed around the northeast, opening for such acts as Willie Nelson, Blues Traveler, Randy Houser, Lee Brice and others. Noted for their high-energy shows, the band was nominated for a New England Music Award in 2014, and continues to bring their soulful good ol’ rock n roll to clubs, parties and festivals around the region.”

The Dusty Gray Band is a country rock outfit from of all places, New Hampshire. Their last release was their sophomore album “Coming ‘Round Again” from 2014. As I try to figure out how to get Dusty to play Pittsburgh this July please join me in thanking him for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?

I had two older brothers so the word would be inherited, I inherited way to many albums to remember.

Your last album bought?

The last thing I bought was the Zac Brown Band EP “The Grohl Session”.

Favorite album of all time?

Way too many. Even though this is hard, I give you my top three. Ray Lamontagne “Trouble”, Ryan Adams “Heartbreaker” and Willie Nelson “Red Headed Stranger”.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?

It’s hard enough to make a record, I don’t want to put anyone down.

First concert attended?

I had a few rich friends in High School and they gave me a ticket to go see OAR. I got there and the opening band came out and shook the place, absolutely took over the stage. It was Robert Randolph and the Family Band. It made me a believer… no one follows the killer!

Last concert?

The band and I have been lucky enough to open for bigger acts, that makes it great to catch a show. We just opened for Charlie Daniels last summer in our home state. He puts on a great show.

Favorite concert ever?

Zac Brown Band is a blast to see. Every musician is so good.

Least favorite concert?

If they’re bad I usually don’t remember them.

Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

I love Pitt. Haven’t been there yet but I’m driving to Nashville in early July maybe I can hit Pittsburgh. Let’s set something up.

Thanks, Dusty. Hell yeah, man. Let us definitely hook something in Pittsburgh up. I’ll be emailing you soon.
