New Orleans native John “Papa” Gros (grow) Led the hugely successful hugely FUNKY «Papa Grows Funk» for 12 years thru 6 PGF albums before morphing into this format that is just as groovy but more lyrical. He has lived 30 years behind the B3 championing the music of the Big Easy and a much sought after guest /contributor to the himmakers today.
His 2nd solo album, last year's River’s on Fire, mixes the sounds of rock & roll, funk and rootsy Americana into a genre-bending gumbo that carries on the tradition of New Orleans, both honoring its past and helping to shape its future.
Throughout his career, Gros has been a bandleader, A sideman. A singer. An instrumentalist. and in his current resurgence his role may be different, but the goal remains the same: to honor the music he’s been living his whole life, and to add his own page to the New Orleans history book.
Gros muses. “Urban Dictionary defines “Fire” as someone doing something great that is unable to be stopped. I hope Toussaint is smiling down on me from above, urging me forward.”
