Red Eye Gravy is the new sound of Oklahoma. The boys create a stylistic blend of traditional country music with the fast-paced punch of punk adding a few hints of bluegrass, rockabilly and blues along the way. Red Eye Gravy embodies a timeless, traditional sound punched-up through the modern lens of rock & roll loud, raw and uncompromising.
The band pummels through an exhilarating live show that captures the audience from the first burst of piercing vocals to the last notes of their deep-rooted sound. Combining a drummer baptized in punk rock, swinging doghouse bass, gritty but melodic guitar and the feverish conviction of its vocalist, Red Eye Gravy will have you believing the Grand Ole Opry was just set on fire and burned to the ground. Whether playing original songs, traditionals, or the occasional cover, this band will deliver an unparalleled show.
Red Eye Gravy has performed in venues across Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri, Texas, Colorado and has shared the stage with such acts as: Zac Brown Band, Chuck Mead, Billy Joe Shaver, Junior Brown, Wayne ‘The Train’ Hancock, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Brandon Jenkins, The Red Dirt Rangers, Jackson Taylor Band, Randy Crouch and Travis Linville. The Dirty Okie was also asked to represent REG solo as an opening act for Scott H. Biram.
The band released their full-length debut album in 2008 and has received great reviews. The band will have soon finished recording the follow-up record Dust Bowl Hangover set for release in early 2014.
The band went on hiatus in 2015.
