New Orleans funk-tronica band, Gravity A, kicks off their winter tour 'Ski-3Po' at Fly Me to the Moon Saloon! Disclaimer* This show is for dance enthusiasts.* Friday, January 17th, 2014 $15 | Doors 8 PM/Show 10 PM. Advance tickets available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/543450 BEST FUNK ALBUM 2012 nominee of the Best of the Beat Awards and BEST ELECTRONICA ACT 2010 nominee of the Big Easy Awards is emerging out of a city that is inundated with musical vibrations. Gravity A exhilarates New Orleans' rich musical tapestry with their fresh, dynamic energy and innovative sound. The quartet (established in 2004) is inspired by the soulful jazz expressions and second-line fusions of their hometown, yet still draws heavily upon the eclectic possibilities of electronic progressions. Gravity A has become the torchbearer for the city's late night soundtrack featuring the unmistakable sound of true New Orleans funk, tight drum n' bass breaks and intoxicating trance. The band's unique sound is highly dependent upon the musicians' passion for live instrumentation and improvisation, which often lends itself to a rambunctious adventure grooving through sunrise. As opposed to Newton's well-known gravity b, Gravity A has taken their name from the force responsible for the cohesion and semblance of all subatomic matter. At a Gravity A show in New Orleans or beyond, this force is intense and irrefutable. The dance floor is transformed into a frenzy as the polar vibrations of Gravity A's magnetic rhythms and far-reaching frequencies resonate amongst the bopping feet, shaking hips, and smiling faces.
