The Greyboy Allstars
Seminal boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars are celebrating their 25th year together. Saxophonist Karl Denson, guitarist Elgin Park, keyboardist Robert Walter, bassist Chris Stilwell and drummer Aaron Redfield are some of the most revered players on the neo-modern funk and jam scenes. Initially formed as the backing band for rare groove luminary DJ Greyboy at the release party for his groundbreaking 1994 album, ‘Freestylin’, GBA quickly became a long term project with a string of critically acclaimed albums and world tours. Their unique sound was captured on recordings like West Coast Boogaloo, A Town Called Earth and What Happened To Television. The Greyboy Allstars’ success has served as a platform for the group’s individual members to launch highly successful and substantially diverse solo careers. Saxophonist Karl Denson fronts his own touring juggernaut Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, but also serves as the tenor saxophonist in The Rolling Stones. Organ and synth master Robert Walter leads his own band, 20th Congress and is a member of Phish bassist Mike Gordon’s band. Guitarist/composer Elgin Park (aka Michael Andrews) is among the most in-demand Hollywood composers, scoring films and television shows including ‘Donnie Darko,’ ‘Freaks and Geeks,’ ‘Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story’, ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘Daddy’s Home’. Bassist Chris Stillwell and drummer Aaron Redfield are one of the most sought after rhythm sections in any genre with a steady flow of high profile session and touring work.
