As action-packed as the spring was for God Street Wine, it’s been incredibly slow for GSW news ever since. Today, I wanted to post a video of one of my favorite mid-tempo GSW tunes – The Ballroom. This brisk reggae shuffle was debuted at Irving Plaza on August 26, 1993 and the band recorded The Ballroom for their major label debut, $1.99 Romances.

Also of note for Winos, you can now search the setlist file over at godstreetwine.com by year, venue, state, city or song.
