Grand Hotel is a rock band from Portland, Maine whose tendency to mix solid grooves, harmonies and pop hooks with a bit of an edge has already gained them a strong following. The band is anchored by the drumming of Aaron LaChance, who also serves as the band's producer, tightened up by bassist Jason Elvin, the band's manager, and filled out and colored in by guitarists Glen Capen, Michael Reid, and singer/guitarist Kyle Gervais.
Kurt Baker is a singer, songwriter and rock nâ€™ roll performer from Portland, Maine who has always gone by the famous saying â€œHave a Good Time All the Timeâ€. He was the founding member of the notable pop/punk outfit the Leftovers, who formed in 2002 and have released many acclaimed records and have toured all over the United States, Europe and Canada. Bakerâ€™s signature unique blend of ultra catchy Beach Boys/Beatles styled melodies under a relentless wall of high energy guitars and pounding rhythms have earned him the praise of Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records) and Ben Weasel (Screeching Weasel) and Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup).
