original music of the Grift
There’s much more to love about The Grift than awesome dance-tastic covers… They are accomplished songwriters / composers in their own right!
Booty-shaking grooves, witty lyrics, and tight vocal harmonies.
The Grift is an independent band based in Burlington, Vermont. Their sound defies easy categorization, blending booty-shaking grooves and improvisation with radio-friendly hooks, witty lyrics, and tight vocal harmonies. Their live shows are energetic and original, with band members swapping instruments and occasionally playing two at a time. With a deep catalogue of original music that blends roots-rock and pop and jam, The Grift throws their diverse array of musical influences into the oven and cooks up tasty sonic treats.
Fan favorites of The Grift include, “Halladay Road,” “Check One,” “The Beauty That Surrounds,” “Emily,” and “Can’t Wait to Get Laid (Off)”. Listen to a few of these favorites from Live at the Fort on Vermont Public Radio.
The Grift loves collaborating with other artists and has shared the stage with Grace Potter, Dispatch, Lloyd Banks (ask them about that story!), The Sweet Remains Russ Lawton (Trey Anastasio Band), Barefoot Truth, Rustic Overtones, and many more.
