ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME is a funk juggernaut. Backed by the hot, gritty orchestration of the 11 member Court Supreme, front man Eldridge Gravy easilyworks dance floors to a fever pitch with his full-bore performance and smooth rapport with the audience. Their high energy, tight arrangements, and massive stage presence have the power to convince any crowd that funk ain't dead.
Eldridge Gravy & The Court Supreme released their fourth album (self titled) in summer of 2017. The entire album was summoned to tape in their clandestine, subterranean studio by up & coming producer Jason Gray of The Polyrhythmics.
Over the past ten years, EG&tCS has played sold-out shows at every prestigious venue in Seattle & Portland, including Crocodile, Neumos, Tractor Tavern, Showbox, Doug Fir Lounge, Goodfoot, and the Star Theater. They have also ruthlessly funked thousands of festival-goers at Bumbershoot, Waterfront Blues Festival, Timber, Summer Meltdown, and July 4th at Gasworks Park.
The band, like so many of it's members, is the product of a wonderful accident. Early in 2006, in what was supposed to be a one-off event, an instrumental band teamed up with a guest singer to learn some James Brown and Parliament covers for a moving-out party. The next morning, the house was torn up; shattered glass was all over the floor, tables were broken, and the landlord was on his way for the final walk-through. In the wake of this carnage, ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME was born.
