venice-carnival-mask-P-1

Mardi Gras celebration {Free Beads} with Binky Griptite’s Loose Tuesday Blues and Soul Jam – (Frontroom.) Best known as the guitarist and emcee for Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings.
“Griptite is a kinetic, time-keeping force, and easily recognizable to fans of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings as the guitarist in the band’s front line whose step is as sure as the click of a metronome.” Village Voice
Some people don’t know the difference between “Retro” and Old School so I will tell you now. “Retro” is a trend. Old School is an attitude; it’s about doing things the way they’re supposed to be done. Binky does Soul and Funk music the way it’s supposed to be done: dirty, gritty and nasty! He’s been around the world as a sideman, performed on platinum selling albums with Janet Jackson and others, and he’s currently a member of the world famous and superbad Dap Kings and Daptone SuperSoulRevue. Now he’s ready to step up and show the world what he can do on his own. Do yourself a favor daddy and come along for the ride! Stay tuned for the upcoming full length LP “Hip-No-Tize-Her!” on Daptone Records.
