Gravity A brings their acclaimed Talking Heads Tribute!

Gravity A exhilarates New Orleans' rich musical tapestry with their fresh, dynamic energy and innovative sound, best exhibited in their 2013 studio release "New Beginnings". The quartet has been a New Orleans staple since 2004, but it wasn't until the addition of its newest members and ultimately the release of "New Beginnings" that has lead to heavy US touring. Tours in 2013 and 2014 featured stops at venues like Cervantes in Denver, Boom Boom Room in San Francisco, and Nectar's in Vermont. Gravity A has developed a unique sound inspired by the soulful funk 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 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.

Most recently, the band has gained even more popularity among fresh ears and long time fans alike after performing a high energy Talking Heads Tribute set at a Jazz Fest late night at the Howlin Wolf in New Orleans. It's popularity quickly sparked a handful of additional performances on the road, including The Fox (Boulder, CO) and The 710 Cup in July 2014. The band plans on making an online release of their tribute set, performed August 29, 2014 at a packed to capacity Tipitina's in New Orleans.
