Introducing PRS Eightlock Band.
PRS “Eightlock” is a band of high-level musicians who are friends and have “locked” together recording and performing a new kind of groove with its roots in Baltimore funk, DC go-go and New Orleans swing. The excitement around this “3 drummer groove” is infectious. The band’s first CD will be released in March of 2022. The line-up is three drummers, a bass player, female singer and three guitar players. They are:
- Dennis Chambers- Modern Drummer Hall of Fame; Santana/Parliament-Funkadelic
- Greg Grainger- Drummer, Whitney Houston/Acoustic Alchemy/Kim Waters.
- Ju Ju House- Drummer, Chuck Brown/EU
- Gary Grainger- Bass, John Scofield/George Duke/Bill Evans
- Mia Samone- “Must hear” new Baltimore voice
- Michael Ault- Renowned Washington D.C. guitarist
- Bill Nelson- Baltimore guitarist and singer
- Paul Reed Smith- World renowned guitar maker/guitar player
A video outlining the band’s video, recording and live talents is complete and displayed on a John Mayer song, “Last Train Home.” PRS Eightlock and team are excited as the recordings “jump out of the speakers” and live sounds like guns/fireworks going off. By the way, if you haven’t had the chance to see Mia sing live, she’s a must hear. Stay tuned!
