ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME is a funk juggernaut. Backed by the hot, gritty orchestration of the 12 member Court Supreme, front man Eldridge Gravy easily works dance floors to a fever pitch with his full-bore performance and smooth rapport with the audience.

The band, like so many of its 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 lay about, 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.

The group quickly picked up horns, keys, backup singers, and was soon 12 men and women strong. The originals that soon replaced covers were a viscous blend of the songs they cut their teeth on. Sly & the Family Stone, Funkadelic, and James Brown are certainly touchstones, for their sound, but Eldridge Gravy has a distinct sound and persona that’s unmistakably their own. While ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME fit in with the recent soul revival heralded by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, they have also played alongside hip hop crews, balkan brass groups, and scuzzy bar rock bands. Their high energy, tight arrangements, and massive stage presence have the power to convince any crowd that funk ain’t dead.

Kicking off the night are goodfoot favorites, Radula. Featuring members of Quick and Easy Boys, Leftover Salmon, Juno What?! and the Goodfoot All-Stars, this crew is steeped in all things party. Expect them to bring some early heat to the affair!

    This is my last week in Portland after spending the summer here. Listening to some funkadelic tunes would be a great end to a great stay here – and will give us a boost before heading back to rainy Europe.
