Eldridge Gravy & The Court Supreme is a funk juggernaut. Backed by the hot, gritty orchestration of the 13 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 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 and The Court Supreme was born.

The group quickly picked up horns, keys, backup singers, and is presently 14 men and women strong. Their sound is a viscous blend of the covers 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 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.

F2D gives you a big welcome to their brand of American roots. It makes you move. You can’t help it. It’s almost involuntary. With influences like the incomparable Parliament/Funkadelic, Motown, Stax Records, Jimi Hendrix, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Lyn Collins, Bobby Byrd, Morris Day and The Time.
