Spotlight: The Green View from Austin, TX

In the next few weeks, we will be highlighting multiple growing Gigmor Bands by introducing them to our users alongside showcasing some of their best work. Our first Spotlight piece is on The Green View.


The Green View is an Americana rock band that was formed in 2002 in the town of, yup you guessed it, Greenview, Illinois. For the past couple years they have been based in Austin where they frequent the popular dive bar Hole in the Wall as well as playing shows all across the Lone Star state. The Green View loves to write and loves to play their originals during their performances.


My favorite track is “I Want My Baby Back.” No this isn’t a Chili’s jingle but I promise you’ll like it just as much. A couple other standout tracks include “Monster,” “Rock It,” and “In Need of an Exit.”


In 2013, the band actually filmed a cameo for the feature film “High on the Hog” which is directed by esteemed writer and director Joe Esteves. The film is still in post-production but we can’t wait to see what The Green View has in store for us in their on-screen debut.
