Greyboy Allstars new album!!



The Greyboy Allstars new release "What Happened to TV?", features the band reunited with producer DJ Greyboy and will be out in early 2007.

The Greyboy Allstars biography :
Launching out of San Diego in the early 90s with a fanbase of surfers, skaters and snowboarders, The Greyboy Allstars blend of hip hop beats, soul jazz grooves and indie rock attitude created the West Coast Groove sound that made great fans of modern day bands like Sublime, The Roots and Lenny Kravitz. Since then, their music has appeared in countless films ( including Zero Effect and Get Shorty) and extreme sports videos while the live set has built a loyal fan base with their sold-out performances nationwide, who come out to watch the "five guys from San Diego kick the living daylights out of bristling jazz-funk . . ."(Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader).

During the band's six year touring hiatus, the members have kept their playing hot with solo projects. Guitarist Elgin Park (aka Mike Andrews) has been creating award winning scores for films such as Donnie Darko (which sparked a number one hit in the UK last year with his cover of "Mad World") and the critically acclaimed Me and You and Everyone We Know, as well as producing records by Inara George, Elgin Park, Gary Jules, Jarvis Cocker and Metric. Karl Denson's band, Tiny Universe has remained a mainstay on the international concert circuit for years (when he is not recording with the likes of the Blind Boys of Alabama, Guster and Jack Dejohnette and Dave Holland).

Robert Walter's 20th Congress has also toured extensively, and Robert's duties fronting The Headhunters keeps his jazz cred maxed. The incredible rythym section of Bassist Chris Stillwell and drummer Zak Najor have been doing extensive session work and touring with Inara George, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and others.

The band is reuniting in the studio with co-founder and producer DJ Greyboy for the new album, the first time they have worked together since 1995's West Coast Boogaloo.
