Is it Summer Yet?!?!

Yo! Things are starting to fall into place for some summer fun in 2023😎

Planning to play some shows in the Midwest in mid-July and in the Western US in early August.

In the meantime, enjoy a little slice of the Swell Gibson original, “Strollin’ Duncan,” recorded live at the Sydney in Omaha, NE last summer.

Keep you posted as dates fall into place. Until then…stay Swell!

Swell in ’22, and Sweller in ’23!!!


Just letting you know that Swell Gibson is feeling grateful this new year for a super-swell reunion last summer, and that we’re already looking forward to playing some shows again this spring and/or summer…and who knows, maybe even sooner if the fates allow!

Last summer was an absolute BLAST, and we wanted to give some serious thanks to Kobrakyle Richardson and the Benson Soul Society for a great time at the Sydney in Omaha, NE, to Julie and the Boji Store for a very memorable night on Lake Okoboji, to Colin Flynn and Rylee Chavez for helping us out and joining us for some groovy jams, Vincent Krysl for the beautiful Ludwig drum kit, Kent Carmichael for a guitar amp AND Honda Odyssey, the Hundtoft family for hosting us, and to all of the wonderful old friends and new that we got to hang out and share some music with:)

Keep you posted on the latest and the greatest as things begin to unfold in 2023. Be Swell until then!

The Swell is Streaming Everywhere!!!

We had a really great time getting together for a couple shows back in July. So much fun in Omaha and on Lake Okoboji on back-to-back nights! We’ll get some photos and videos up here soon:)

In the meantime, our 3-song EP “Swell Gibson at Studio Knee” is streaming everywhere, so you can now enjoy the Swell wherever you go.

Reuniting for the shows this summer has truly reinvigorated our love of playing together, and we’re sincerely hoping that it will just be the beginning! Stay tuned🤓

Swell Gibson is Back!!!

Your favorite (right?) funky organ trio is getting together for a couple of shows this summer. Covid was an interesting time for the Swell, as it was for everyone…Tris relocated his organ and his talents to New Orleans, and Andy headed a little north of LA to Camarillo, CA. But we’ll be reuniting for a handful of shows this summer. Currently, it looks like they will be in the midwest, but it’s possible that a couple other dates will pop up elsewhere.

If you haven’t checked out Swell’s recordings from Studio Knee, give ’em a listen at:

Who can? Tris Duncan

Some “Swell” recordings…


Swell Gibson finally carved out some time to hunker down in Studio Knee and capture some sweet sounds!  It was recorded the old-fashioned way…just 3 guys sweatin’ it out and jamming in a room together:) . Three tunes have been mixed so far: Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire,” Alan Hawkshaw’s “Beat Me ‘Til I’m Blue,” and a Swell original, “Bonebag.”  Hope you dig!

Enjoy them below, or go to
