Grayak w/s/g Creatures

THURSDAY JUNE 1
10 PM

Get down to the peaceful grooves of acclaimed acoustic reggae folk band Grayak! The solo project of Root Shock's Phil Grajko, this band celebrates a night at Otro with a performance featuring a cast of all original members. In 2012, Phil decided to embark on a new musical adventure. He teamed up with his sister, Hannah, and long-time friends Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand to begin fleshing out a new batch of songs. These back porch jam sessions eventually led to the album "Made of Light", which blended uplifting reggae songwriting with acoustic bluegrass and folk instrumentation. A performance by bassist VanNorstrand's new band Creatures is also on the docket.
