Greta Van Fleet

Greta Van Fleet are a group with a strong connection. Three of the four members are family: twins Josh and Jake Kiszka and their younger brother Sam. The fourth is their childhood friend Danny Wagner from Frankenmuth, an American town founded by Germans. It’s also the home of Gretna (with an ‘n’) Van Fleet, an elderly lady who has lent her name to a band that runs on blues, hard rock and soul. The four are old spirits in young bodies. Their epic seventies sound contains traces of Sam Cooke, Jack White and, in particular, Led Zeppelin. Greta Van Fleet were dubbed the new sensation in rock in 2018. They have managed to sell out the Lotto Arena and the main stage at Rock Werchter. Their new album, ‘The Battle At Garden’s Gate’ (2021), is a collection of catchy singalong songs. A persuasive step towards much more.
