Gunn Park – 1972-2016

We lost a great friend last night. Gunn Park, our longtime bassist who has been battling cancer since March, succumbed to the disease, and passed away peacefully on Monday, September 26.

We’re all so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to play music with him, to experience his friendship, and to witness his talent. Our sincere condolences to his wife Rebecca and son Ian.

RIP Gunn,
Echo Nebraska

A Note About Gunn

In late March, we were hit with some heartrending and surreal news. Bassist and one of the founding members of the band, Gunn Park, was diagnosed with liver cancer. For this reason, he was unable to tour with us this past spring.

He re-joined the band for a handful of shows, while undergoing treatment, and sadly, his disease took a toll on his physical health. As his treatment continues, Gunn has decided to step down from his role in Echo Nebraska.

Unfortunately, until Gunn receives an updated CT scan, he does not have updates to share on his prognosis or treatment plan.

We are about to announce another tour, again without our dear friend. Dan will be playing bass for the tour.

Our thoughts are with Gunn and his family.

Love,
Andy, Carly, Dan, Devan & Mike
