THE GRÏD is a Hip Hop/modern funk band led by drummer and singer A.J. Hall. With a thick low end sound complimented by lush synths and unique guitar parts, the band puts forth a vibe reminiscent of 90s hip hop production and the classic 1980s Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis sound. In 2016 THE GRÏD released their debut EP "Evasive Maneuvers" as a snap shot of the band's sound and attitude.
Often joined by New Orleans MC and Jet Life affiliate Nesby Phips, the bands live shows are an exhibition of rap energy and funk sensibilities.
THE GRÏD is:
AJ Hall - Drums, vocals
John Maestas – Guitar
Max Moran – Bass
Jason Butler – Keys
