PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
$8 Good Rocking Sammich
Your favorite GRS guys plus a few extra-special sidemen: Scott Sawyer and Chuck Cotton. And just maybe a few others!

2016 TBS Blues Challenge winners in the band category, GRS is a blues/r & b/roots outfit out of Durham, NC, home of the Piedmont Blues. GRS is big into the blues, but doesn’t really call itself a blues band, we just take it all in and try to put something original back out…blues, Memphis soul, Motown, New Orleans, some old funk mixed up and served out to the world-wide internet. Here we are trolling the web, seeing if the long tail has room for a humble, yet sincere Triangle roots band.

GRS is Dave Sword (drums and vocals), Dave Mozier (keyboard, harp, vocals), Chuck Taylor (bass and vocals), and Mike Conway (guitar). We’ve all slugged it out in the clubs in tons of local bands, and have been crossing paths for years. GRS grew out of jams/songwriting sessions at Dave’s place in lovely Efland, NC, and these sessions continue every week. Once we get about a dozen tunes together, we haul out the gear, and bounce between home studios to put it all down.

Samedi Gras has become the 2nd greatest party in New Orleans other than Mardi Gras! Mardi is Tuesday in French. Samedi is Saturday.

Mel Melton & The Wicked Mojos is looking forward to returning to The Blue Note Grill! For those not in the know: the band is fronted by singer/harmonicist Mel Melton, who logged a lot of road time with both Cheniers Clifton and C.J., and most notably Sonny Landreth. He is backed by the fiery guitar work of Max Drake and the dynamic driving rhythm section of bassist T.A. James and drummer Kelly Pace.

The Wicked Mojos play a mixture of blues, zydeco/cajun, funk, swamp pop that is best described as “Louisiana Dance Hall Music”. Without a doubt, this band will set your soul and feet on fire.

"Tom Gray and Mark Johnson are the rusty, banged up Cadillacs of the slide guitar, side by side coughing up smoke and spitting backwoods dirt, but unswerving in their precision and singular style." - Tom Clarke, Hittin' the Note

Delta Moon plays deep roots music. A whisky-flavored voice delivers 21st century lyrics, while two slide guitars wind around an unshakeable groove like kudzu vines on a barbwire fence.
