Their musical chemistry is undeniably perfect. Their style is unique. Even their name is one of a kind. Biscuits and Gravy. And after attending one performance from this dynamic Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, and R&B band, you'll understand the name clearly. It's more than just soulful grooves, fiery sax riffs, and mindblowing drum solos. It's food for the soul. And it's guaranteed that you'll leave saying, "That hit the spot!"
The band's creative mojo is powered by Keyboardist Eric Sexton's gift for formulating new and funky grooves on a daily basis. At the forefront of the group is lead vocalist and lyrical genius Harold Simmons (aka Future), who graces the group with his alto saxophone, sick rhymes, and dynamite stage presence. Tenor Saxophonist Wesley Winfrey adds his expertise to the group with his Coltrane influenced style. Last but not least, 13 year old wonder Brandon Holt holds the group together with his out-of-this-world drumming skill and mastery of rythyms, the perfect finish for any band.
The proof is in the music. They've played at all the top music venues in Nashville, such as 12th&Porter, 3rd&Lindsley, Lovenoise, Rocketown, African-Street Festival, Cafe CoCo and even the newly built Schermerhorn Symphony Center. On September 2, 2006, they had the opportunity to open up for the legendary DJ and Hip Hop pioneer DJ Jazzy Jeff in front of almost 1000 people at the Lovenoise 3rd Anniversary Block Party. Biscuits and Gravy was featured on a television show called Not Just Country that showcases bands and artists in Nashville that do more than Country music. It will air on CW (UPN) at the beginnig of 2007. They have been featured on internet radio and 92.1 (WQQK) FM for their musical skills. You can catch this youthful bunch monthly at their dedicated night at Cafe CoCo every third Friday, where they can be found hosting the best all ages open mic in the city "WIDEOPEN". Biscuits and Gravy is undoubtedly Nashville's newest and most promising talent. But don't take my word for it....
