Live Music – Grease, Grit and Grime
April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In the cracks, under the floorboards, and down a deep dark alley, you will find Grease Grit and Grime. Embodying the expression “dirty blues,” this group is schooled in Mississippi Delta and Chicago blues. The meat of the band’s sets is comprised of originals and standards from Chicago, Delta and Swamp Blues greats. The band’s specialty is getting folks out of their chairs and keeping the dance floor hot! They choose to perform songs that don’t give you the blues, but they lift the blues up “offa ya.”
The band started in 2007 in Nevada County and by musicians with experience in a variety of professional acts such as the local band Organic Flood, Bay Area acts Lisa Kindred and Ascension, Barry “The Fish” Melton, Luther Tucker, L.C. “Good Rockin’” Robinson and Curtis Lawson.
Some highpoints for the band have been opening for Johnny Winter and Buddy Guy, opening for and performing as “house band” for Excello & Alligator recording artist Lazy Lester – as well as performing at the Polk Street Blues Festival in San Francisco in 2011, propelling the band into appearances at San Francisco blues dance dance venue gigs. With Western Swing Hall of Famer Bob Woods on guitar!
