Yankee Blood and Grayak Ready to Steal Hearts at Funk ‘n Waffles

Local folk/reggae fusion group Grayak will be performing with Nashville-based indie pop friends Yankee Blood, Thursday September 3 at Funk ‘n Waffles in Syracuse.

It would be a shame to miss out for several reasons. For the first time in quite a while, after performing with a stripped down crew of musicians, Grayak will be represented on stage by a five piece ensemble, providing the fullest live sound delivered by the band in recent history.

At the helm is Phil Grajko on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, supported by Brendan Gosson on fiddle and mandolin, Blake Propst on upright bass, Tyler Dattmore on drums and percussion and Hannah Grajko on vocals.

Both Yankee Blood and Grayak have performed together on a few occasions, including at a grungy basement show down the street from the Westcott Theater this past winter.

Neither band is afraid to get a smattering of crusty dry wall sprinkled on their shoulders, which is a true testament to their abilities to overcome adversity, even surrounded by cement sink holes and spiders. Kelly Ruth, lead vocalist and bassist of Yankee Blood will be joined by James Karp on guitar and vocals, Adam Verone on drums and Lizzy Herder on synths and vocals. Ruth and Herder’s harmonizations are not to be missed.

Doors open at 7:00 pm and show starts at 8:00 pm. Get your tickets here
