Craig Waters & the Flood
July 30 @ 10:00 pm
Deep South soul funk by way of East Nashville, Tenn., Craig Waters and the Flood provide a window into a world of love and squalor, juxtaposed with turbo-funk and jazz instrumentals. This is exciting, powerful, hip shaking music for the people. Born and raised in Augusta, Ga., Waters grew up in a musical household playing blues guitar and the trombone in conservatory big bands. As a child, Craig’s blues-playing father strongly encouraged family ear training sessions while religiously spinning records on Sunday mornings. While living in Athens, Ga., he studied with multi-Grammy award winning organist Ike Stubblefield and jazz guitar great Grant Green Jr., then in 2012 formed Craig Waters and the Flood in 2012. The band’s debut album is out on Ropeadope Records this month.
