Direct From NEW ORLEANS...
It's their DEBUT SHOW IN SAN FRANCISCO!
Self-described New Orleans funktronica band Gravity A seems transported out of some entity’s syncopated dream. There is so much raw energy and dynamic movement in their music that at times, it feels almost chaotic. Chaos never sounded so good. Gravity A’s musical talents are obvious to anyone who has ever had the pleasure of having their ears blessed by one of their brilliant and stylish auricular fusions. The ferocious complexity and dizzying pace of some of their hypersonic assaults is perfectly balanced by the inebriating depth and beautiful accessibility of their slower compositions. The band members—Andrew “Drew Meez on da Keys” Meehan on keys, organ, and synths; Michael “Fou” Fouquier on drums; Devin “Deving Devine” Kerrigan on bass; and Danny “The Most” Abel on guitar—are all NOLA natives. The band formed in New Orleans in 2004, and it is very clear that the musical heritage of this great city runs deep within them. All that ability, energy, skill, and focus is poured into Gravity A’s live shows in a way that’s bound to ensure anyone a great concert experience. When Gravity A jams out, they really jam out! Some of their shows have been known to keep on rocking until the cock crows. Their raw skill and insane facemelting improvisations are as good, if not better, than any that you’ve ever seen. Gravity A keeps the beat grooving to get your body and your feet moving. When it comes to live shows, it doesn’t get much better than this!
Nominated 2010 Best of the Big Easy Awards.
Developing out of a city that is inundated with musical vibrations, Gravity A exhilarates New Orleans' rich musical tapestry with their fresh, dynamic energy and innovative sound. This five years old quartet is inspired by the soulful jazz expressions and second-line fusions of their hometown, yet still draws heavily upon the eclectic possibilities of electronic progressions.
Gravity A has become the torchbearer for the city's late night soundtrack featuring the unmistakable sound of true New Orleans funk, tight drum n' bass breaks and intoxicating trance. The band's unique sound is highly dependent upon the musicians' passion for live instrumentation and improvisation, which often lends itself to a rambunctious adventure grooving through sunrise. As opposed to Newton's well-known gravity b,
Gravity A has taken their name from the force responsible for the cohesion and semblance of all subatomic matter. At a Gravity A show in New Orleans or beyond, this force is intense and irrefutable.
