The Gripsweats
11p-2am * 21 & UP * $10 
Direct from Nashville, TN comes a new group on the soul & funk scene, The Gripsweats! The group started off as a studio project at the G.E.D. Soul Records studio, but eventually migrated to bandleader Andrew Muller's basement studio where things got very rough & raw - influenced by all things that make you move & feel. They released their debut "7 vinyl record on Colemine Records (Orgone, Durand Jones & The Indications, Monophonics, etc.) on Sept. 9th 2016 and are working on a follow up LP to release this year.

"One of the heaviest funk 45s of the year!" - Flea Market Funk

"Nobody's got the gripsweats here – because the sound of "Ziggy's Walk" is so sharp, so tight, all of the musicians must have had some pretty deft fingers on their instruments! The tune is slow-stepping, but comprised of some very punchy horn parts and riffing guitar – the latter of which opens up in all these very cool wangly ways! "Alpha Dog" is another slow-funk burner too – and has even more of a bold bottom, thanks to some Hammond in the mix! - Dusty Groove
