Biscuits & Gravy / Press

“My first encounter with Biscuits & Gravy was like traveling back in time to a Beatles or Rolling Stones concert, with swarms of groupies screaming and immolating their bodies to the rising gods of rock ‘n roll. This young, diversely vibrant group of seven from Boston blends into a sole volcanic ensemble on stage, bringing together a shared passion for music, groovy, deliciously funky tunes and a dazzling, galvanizing energy. Playing with multiple instruments ranging from bass to alto sax, and with enticing, warm vocals, Biscuits & Gravy are able to set on fire any crowd . With an upcoming album (“Hello Weekend”) in the making, this high-powered, explosive group ignites the East coast scene and is getting ready to conquer it all.”

“Biscuits & Gravy are like Youngblood Brass Band, but with subtlety. Like Stevie Wonder, but without Stevie, and a bit more up to date. If the entire Bridget Jones soundtrack was replaced with Biscuits & Gravy, I’d be able to last the film without having an empathy-induced shame spiral. I want to hear a B&G mash up with Amy Winehouse. I want this album to play from an unknown source when I get my sexyface on.”

““I could do my work and go to bed, but I party instead.” sang David Hunddleston last Friday night at Church in Boston. This mentality infuses meaning into the heart and soul of Boston’s Biscuits and Gravy, a funk and soul septet determined to bring you deep into the night with sexy rhythms and intricate grooves that force you to lose yourself in the intersecting dance vibes swirling around your head from the moment they start to the second they stop. These guys are straightforward; they tell you they’re going to serenade the audience and they do it with purpose. They carry themselves with the bravado of a professional soul band and the swagger of James Dean’s rebel-without-a-cause state of mind. They’re good, but they don’t care if you know it—they just want to play some music.”

“This album’s been three years in the making and it’s been well worth the wait. Contained within these 10 tracks are a boatload of desire, drive, and a love for the music. This is not a CD to relax to: if you can last three songs without being struck by the urge to get up and move around the room, you’re a better person than I.”

“So, here's the deal. I can't begin to listen to, digest or publish everything we receive. About once or twice a month in 2012*, I will be randomly opening new mail and so long as the stuff is potentially of interest to our music-crazed audiences, we'll publish it. This week, we introduce you to a R&B, dance and soul act from Boston that are making some noise. We think you'll agree they're worth a listen.”
