The Greyboy Allstars
The Greyboy Allstars
When The Greyboy Allstars first formed almost 15 years ago, some of the West Coast's visionary young musicians came together to realize the unique artistic vision of rare groove luminary DJ Greyboy: an original sound reminiscent of `70s soundtrack music. It not only was beloved at the time, but also proved seminal: Echoes of it can heard in the work of countless bands since, and each member of the group went on to achieve success as solo artists and in other collaborations. What Happened to Television? finds the group reunited with DJ Greyboy, whose role as producer marks his first collaboration with the band since their 1995 breakthrough, West Coast Boogaloo.

The Greyboy Allstars' success together served as a platform for the group's members to launch highly successful, substantially diverse—and all different from the Greyboy Allstars sound—solo careers; and the further immersed they became in their individual undertakings, the harder it became to bring everyone together to record and/or tour as The Greyboy Allstars. Hammond organist and keyboardist Robert Walter has recorded and toured with everyone from the Headhunters to downtown NYC avant rocker Bobby Previte. After the Greyboy Allstars scored the film Zero Effect, guitarist/composer/ Elgin Park (aka Michael Andrews) continued to write for the screen, scoring such critically praised films Donnie Darko and Me and You & Everyone We Know, as well as the underground TV hit "Freaks and Geeks." He has also produced recordings by Metric, Brendan Benson, Inara George and Gary Jules, whose Andrews-produced cover of "Mad World" reached #1 on the U.K. charts. Most recently Andrews produced the soundtrack for Jake Kasdan's 2007 film, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Horn player Karl Denson became leader of one of the top live touring bands, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. Bassist Chris Stillwell and drummer Aaron Redfield are one of the most sought after rhythm sections in any genre.
Butcher Brown
Butcher Brown
Straight out of the underground, a steady rumble is building and it's called Butcher Brown. Pulsing from the nerve center of Jellowstone Studios in Richmond VA, Butcher Brown takes careful note of the history and legacy of jazz and throws caution to the wind with wanton abandon. Garage punk jazz funk on the low end of the dial gives way to delicate and elegant compositions as the band shows off without trying. These are not just players, these are musicians.
