Meet the Band
The Glue Factory plays folk rock and lesser known classic rock and blues in an Americana style. We have fun finding and playing well-crafted songs that appeal to audiences of all ages. It’s the kind of music that has been played on front porches and around kitchen tables and has stood the test of time.
We play everything from Johnny Cash to Miles Davis. Tom Petty to Bob Marley. Cream to Gillian Welch.
The band was formed in 2012 when three guys who work together at an adhesives company (hence the name) got together to jam a bit on weekends. Friends joined in and before we knew it we had a real band.
Our main goal is to have fun playing a wide variety of interesting songs. We mainly play benefit shows in the Nashoba area to raise money for local charities. We’re not quitting our day jobs!
