About

Greta Van Fleet from Frankenmuth is a rock band formed in 2012. It consists of vocalist Josh Kiszka, guitarist Jake Kiszka, bassist Sam Kiszka, and drummer Danny Wagner. The band name was created when one of the members heard his Grandfather mention Gretna Van Fleet, a resident of Frankenmuth. Their use of the variation on her name was done with her blessing.

From sing-along choruses to fiery guitar solos, Greta Van Fleet rounds up a highlight reel of rock & roll heroics. These guys aren't revivalists; they're looking ahead, breathing new life into a sound that's blasted out of car dashboards and living room stereos for decades.
