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.

EG&tCS is currently releasing singles and videos for their highly anticipated fourth studio album, which is slated to be released in the fall of 2016.  The entire album is being summoned to tape in their clandestine, subterranean studio by up & coming producer Jason Gray of The Polyrythmics.  

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.

    Music

    Baby Gramps is an amazing amalgamation of everything that anybody’s ever heard including Mississippi John Hurt, Uncle Dave Macon, Charlie Patton, Blind Blake, Captain Beefheart, the Tuvan Throat Singers and Popeye. Baby Gramps has created a highly developed and completely original musical concoction that is easily the most intriguing synthesis to come out of the roots revival of the late 20th Century. He plays beautifully “betwixt the cracks in the piano” a la Ornette Coleman, can scat the blues three notes at once, and has invented his own guitar technique he calls “scribbling”. Gramps does amazing tricks with timing, timbre, tempo and pitch that no one can hope to imitate, and reinvents himself nightly, never performing a song the same way twice. Jazz buffs will want to compare the two takes of “Nuthin’” we’ve included on this disc (Same 'Ol Timeously) with the one you hear next time you see Gramps live. I call it jazz, because that’s what it is.
