From the central valley of California, Electric Grease has their own blues sound, while staying true to the roots. Heavily disciplined in the Chicago Blues and West Coast Jump styles, they produce a certain sound and have a stage presence that's all their own. "Greasy, Gritty, Low-fidelity" is how they describe their music. Over the years this four-piece band has been playing all kinds of venues, blues festivals, biker and classic car festivals, dive bars and special parties, while traveling around California and the West Coast. With influences from Junior Wells, Little Walter, Muddy Waters and Magic Sam, Electric Grease keeps it down home as well as rockin’ with energy.
