Grammer School, a trio from Asheville, NC is Bill Cooley on percussion and all things dingy; Justing Bowles on piano, synth, and vocals; and Mike Clair with guitar and vocals.
Everyone, including the band members, have a hard time pinning their sound into a genre. Some have dubbed it "Appalachian Psy-Pop" and others "Adult Contemporary on acid." Their sets have been called "genre smashing" as if you're actually flipping through radio stations. And while their passion is in Rock N' Roll, their sound takes on bouncy pop riffs, sudden tempo and chord changes, piano interludes, fuzzy synthesizers, catchy lyrics, building tensions, punk-fueled guitar, soulful melodies, and unusual subject matter. Not to mention their sometimes raucous energy can make anybody dance.
Although not a jam band, the've been known to let the song just simply take off in order for the crowd to just keep moving. After all, that's what it's all about, keeping people moving. Whether playing to a brightly lit crowd of 300 or a candle lit audience of 10, Grammer School will win you over with their unique, high energy show.
