MUDGRIP is a funky-soul band from Memphis, TN that is single-handedly bringing the boogaloo sound back to the streets where it was born. We invite everyone out to "shake yo' tail feathers" to these classic sounds. The boogaloo style was really honed by Memphis bands such as Booker T. and the MG's, the Mar-Keys, and Willie Mitchell's Quintet - and MUDGRIP plans to continue this lineage with deep grooves that you can't resist!! The boogaloo sound was born in the south then moved to the inner city neighborhoods of "upper Mississippi" (Chicago/Detroit) and outward, reaching New York and California around the late 1960's. These new Boogaloo bands were based on organ trios or quartets where the centerpiece is the Hammond B-3 organ, augmented by guitar, saxophone and drums. The elements found in the music are based on blues and gospel combined with the sensitivity of jazz and the feel good "shake" of inner city rhythm and blues. Boogaloo is music that dares you not to be moved!!! MUDGRIP digs deep in the soil and turns out the true "cash crop" of the Mid-South and beyond - BOOGIE!!!! Our song list is comprised of the finest funk chestnuts from yester-year. In one night, you will hear music made famous by such great artists as Lonnie Smith, Big John Patton, Jimmy Smith, Don Patterson, the Mar-Keys, Grant Green, James Brown, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and George Benson. The groove is deep and the funk is thick! Catch MUDGRIP as soon as possible - your fonk depends on it!!!
