Gravy / Press

“Gravy Said and Done Blue Eye Dog Gravy is a surprisingly young group, something worth noting considering the band’s new album, Said and Done sounds like a group of musicians who has been on the scene for a while. This rock-funk quartet’s skilful display of musicianship is on every track. The slide guitar hook on Dorsey is in the same vein as blues-rock outfit The Black Keys, and their infusion of genres is evident on The Pullout, which gives the immediate feel-good vibe that The Funky Meters are known for. Everything this band is capable of is summed up on track nine, "Cool with That," which begins with a jazzy drum intro, a perfect walking bass line, and a soft, playful touch of the keys that leads into a fun theme. This album is truly entertaining, and these natives of our great city are a reminder that not only do we have our own thing going on down here, but that there are musicians to perpetuate a groove that is here to stay.”

“Listen Up Gravy Creating a musical blend they call "Funk Rock". Gravy combines traditional new Orleans funk with musical aspects from every walk of life.”

Relix Magazine

“A thick helping of Gravy means Crescent City jam-rock at its finest. This band of eclectic locals has quickly risen through the ranks of the New Orleans music scene as the culmination of four distinct musical palettes. Some call it bluegrass, others progressive rock, even some rhythm & blues. You can call it a delicious blend of soul-enriched funk rock.”

“The sludge in the French Quarter is often referred to as “gravy,” and this undeniable byproduct has a distinctive New Orleans funk to it. As residents know, the funk is everywhere in New Orleans; it was born here and it breeds here in the streets and clubs. The city’s latest funkified musical product is Gravy, a local rock band seeping with funkiness that is starting to catch fire and garner attention. Already armed with an arsenal of choice cover tunes as well as a number of funky and sophisticated originals, this young quintet adds a distinctive touch to the sometimes tiredly mired funk scene.”
