Gravy is the culmination of four distinct views of musical appreciation, quickly climbing the ranks of the New Orleans music scene, providing a mix of styles and genres that satisfy the most sophisticated palette and has cemented the band's place in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast music scene. You may have caught them on WWOZ, playing the French Quarter Festival, at the late night shows during New Orleans Jazz Fest, or rocking out at any number of local clubs and bars, such as Tipitina's and The Maple Leaf. Gravy is fresh out of the studio, having just recorded their sophomore album, "The Hard Way", featuring the work of guest musician Johnny Vidacovich, a New Orleans legend and close friend to the band. Gravy's first studio album, Said & Done, was recorded at New Orleans' own Piety Street Studios, and saw the band collaborate with such icons as producer Mark Bingham, saxophonist Ben Ellman of Galactic, and Corey Henry of The Rebirth Brass Band on trombone. Along with praising reviews from local magazines, Said & Done has become a local favorite, seeing extended air play on radio station WWOZ, which is widely known for it's loyalty to maintaining a rich musical scene in New Orleans. Along with Said & Done, Gravy can be found on the Southern Comfort 'Start The Music Up' Compilation CD, a tribute to New Orleans Musicians, alongside artists such as Galactic, Cowboy Mouth, Professor Longhair, Jon Cleary, Theresa Andersson, The Rebirth Brass Band, and Johnny Sketch & The Dirty Notes. Gravy has also been featured in Relix Magazine, in the regular 'Listen Up' section. From Jam to Progressive Rock to Rhythm & Blues to Jazz to Bluegrass, Gravy's mission is to touch and enrich the soul. Individually, the members of Gravy are four musicians with individual talents, but the band is more than a sum of it's parts. Together these musicians form a group that transcends genre and style and always leaves the listener wanting more.
