The Gamblers Band - December 2021

The Gamblers Band is an original band from Stanly County led by songwriter Alan Gilbert. His southern songs are real and come straight from the heart. The band covers artist such as Johnny Cash, John Prine, Little Feat, CCR, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Bob Seeger and The Band.

Alan Gilbert’s style of entertainment comes strait from the heart. And as in all art that comes from true human experience, you will find a vast variety of human emotion in his performance. You may dab at a tear or two, but mostly you'll grin. ”
