Grand Slam

Back to the future: Grand Slam is travelling through space and time. The 10 funkateers have been cooking their funky stew since 1985. Deeply rooted in the P-Funk and Soul tradition these musicians are well-known to throw a fair amount of extra spices like Rock, HipHop and Jazz in their Funk-Pot, to create a very much original and unmistakable sound. Over 500 successful concerts in 12 European countries is an undeniable record for one of Europe`s prime funk-acts.
On their new Album “Funk Cruisin` - The neverending Voyage” Grand Slam takes a look back on their outstanding career and rearranged and remixed some of their greatest songs. They also recorded 5 new Songs which are State of The Art Funk. 80ies Electrosounds meets Daft Punks Disco Funk. Vocoder and Talkboxsound meets Raps and Cuts. All held together with a distinctive Clinton/Collins Attitude.
On a regular basis Grand Slam is working with P-Funk OG`s like Lige Curry (P-Funk All Stars), Rick Gardner (Parliament-Funkadelic) and extraordinaire vocalist Gary “Mudbone” Cooper. The original frontground voice of Bootsy`s Rubber Band and current lead vocalist of George Clinton`s P-Funk Allstars and Parliament-Funkadelic has been part of more than 400 album productions as singer, drummer, arranger, writer and producer. Recent works include stage and studio hints with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, A Tribe called Quest, Maceo Parker& Pink, to name a few.
Another heavily featured guest artist on ”Funk Cruisin`- The neverending Voyage” is Cologne`s own Talkbox King Funkmaster Ozone who participating on 4 Songs.
