The Grease Traps are a solid 8-piece funk band based in Oakland, CA. Featuring tight horns and stirring vocals from that sharp-dressing, all-around fly dude, The Gata, their musical mix of hard-driving funk and lowdown soul is guaranteed to get your head noddin' and cure your dance jones. They recently celebrated their 10-year anniversary and have released a 45 single on the well-respected funk/soul label, Colemine Records with more to come.
