Grounds Crew – Alternative Rock & Punk Trio

Grounds Crew – Alternative Rock & Punk Trio — LIVE at MadLife Stage & Studios on Wednesday, November 3rd at 7:30!

Grounds Crew


In the Fall of 2017, Marietta, GA native, Chip Mattiford, began songwriting and assembling a band to support. With original member/fellow local MLB grounds crew compadre, Chris Kelly, on keyboards/vocals, the duo played several local songwriters shows featuring the early originals under “The Grounds Crew” moniker before eventually meeting Kennesaw, GA based drummer, Ricky Darnell, who joined them onstage at one of the first gigs in early 2018. In the Summer of 2018, the trio set out to record demos of the first songs and eventually reached out to Atlanta based guitarist/producer and friend of the band, Carlos Santiago to play bass on the tracks. The trio would go on to self produce/release their first in-house demos in 2019-2020, the “Letters EP”, followed by several in-house singles (Jailbird, 5001) and an acoustic EP titled “Remember It.” In the Summer of 2020, the band recorded its first full-length studio album, “Firestarter”, which was released in December 2020 and featured two introductory singles in “Nothing You’ll Ever Want to See” and “Put the Fire Out.” Following the release of “Enjoy Your Holiday” in late May 2021, the band parted ways with Darnell and connected with Atlanta based multi-instrumentalist, Sean Maloney, to take over percussion duties. The band’s latest single, “While We’re Waiting” (featuring Darnell on drums) was released on July 23, 2021.
