Artists
The Greyboy Allstars
Seminal boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars are celebrating their 25th year
together. The milestone anniversary will include a new studio album. Saxophonist Karl
Denson, guitarist Elgin Park, keyboardist Robert Walter, bassist Chris Stilwell and
drummer Aaron Redfield are some of the most revered players on the modern funk and
jam scenes.

Initially formed as the backing band for rare groove luminary DJ Greyboy at the release
party for his groundbreaking 1994 album, ‘Freestylin’ it quickly became a long term
project with a string of critically acclaimed albums and world tours. Their unique sound
reminiscent of ‘70s blaxploitation soundtrack music was captured on recordings like
‘West Coast Boogaloo,’ ‘A Town Called Earth’ and ‘What Happened To Television.’

The Greyboy Allstars success also served as a platform for the group’s individual
members to launch highly successful and substantially diverse solo careers. Organ and
synth master Robert Walter leads his own band, the 20th Congress and is a member of
Phish bassist Mike Gordon’s band. Guitarist/composer Elgin Park (aka Michael
Andrews) is among the most in-demand Hollywood composers, scoring films and
television shows like ‘Donnie Darko,’ ‘Freaks and Geeks,’ ‘Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox
Story’ and ‘Daddy’s Home.’ Saxophonist Karl Denson fronts his own touring juggernaut
Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, but also serves as the tenor saxophonist in The Rolling
Stones. Bassist Chris Stillwell and drummer Aaron Redfield are one of the most sought
after rhythm sections in any genre with a steady flow of high profile session and touring
work.
