ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME is a funk juggernaut. Backed by the hot, gritty orchestration of the 10-person Court Supreme, frontman Eldridge Gravy easily works dancefloors 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 everywhere, tables 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 were soon 11 men and women strong. Originals soon replaced covers, sounding like a viscous blend of the songs they cut their teeth on -- Sly and The Family Stone, Funkadelic, and James Brown are 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.
In May of 2009 the group released their first CD "US IS WHAT TIME IT IS" to a sold out Tractor Tavern. Recorded at AVAST Studios and mastered by Mell Detmer, the album is a taut collection of hook filled psychedelic soul and funk that calls to mind Sly's "Stand!" and The Temptations circa 1969.
