God Street Wine (also known as GSW) was a jam rock group from New York City. The band broke up in 1999. The band toured the U.S. with H.O.R.D.E. four times and opened for the Black Crowes and Allman Brothers. The band played a large part in developing the jam rock scene of the early 90's initially playing Nightingale's and The Wetlands Preserve in New York City with the likes of The Spin Doctors, Blues Traveler, Jono Manson and the Dreyer Brothers. Numerous bands and musicians had opened for them over the years ranging from Dave Matthews Band, Sheryl Crow and Hootie and the Blowfish to the Ominous Seapods and G. Love & Special Sauce.
The band was originally composed of Lo Faber (lead vocals, guitar), Aaron Maxwell (lead vocals, guitar), Tom Osander (drums and percussion), Dan Pifer (bass), and Jon Bevo (keyboards). Faber and Osander were high school friends and had played in bands together previously.
In 1998, after 2 failed record deals, frustration with management and the general feeling that things were going nowhere, Osander and Bevo decided they'd had enough and left the band. They were later replaced by Peter Levin (keyboards), Jason Crosby (keyboards/fiddle) and Aubrey Dayle (percussion). They continued touring with this new lineup until the band collectively reached the decision to finally dissolve itself in 1999.
