Sweet Leda & The Grilled Lincolns
October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$22
Sweet Leda is back and they’re bringing the ruckus with Grilled Lincolns joining the bill!
Both bands will feature Ricky Wise on drums. Get ready for another sold-out night of incredible music from the great state of Maryland.
Powered by Julie Cymek’s sultry, commanding vocals and electrifying stage presence, Sweet Leda knows how to get the party started! In fact, Lou Plaia (co-founder of Reverbnation) describes them as “the highlight of every festival they play.” With its rich blend of new school funk, psychedelic rock, soul and pop, Sweet Leda’s heartfelt original music can best be described as a female-fronted, soul-based, Zeppelin meets Chili Peppers!
Since the year 2000, The Grilled Lincolns have been making a blend of music built on a foundation of rock, informed by hip-hop and funk, and sprinkled with elements of everything else that catches their attention, from comedy to Go-Go music.
Guitarist and singer Riddie Becker came up in the tradition of the blues-based rock and roll guitar god, striving to emulate the skill of Hendrix’s solos and Stevie Ray Vaughn’s cadence. Becker’s chops shine in the band’s unpretentious rock songs, but also during improvised jam sessions when he’s backed up by bassist/guitarist Mike Bakke and percussionist Andy Hall. Both have honed their craft as rap lyricists and are capable of freestyling in a range of flows and styles, stringing together observations and punchlines about any topic that comes to mind. Bassist Ben Gilbert and drummer Kevin Shook are the backbone of the band, keeping the rhythm rocking, fun and funky.
The G-Linx have shared the stage with some of the bands that have influenced them the most, including The Roots, George Clinton, Chuck Brown, Method Man and Redman, Slick Rick, Wax, and Souls of Mischief.
The band is part of a rich musical community based around Annapolis, Maryland that punches above its weight in terms of skill and creative output. Bumpin Uglies, Higher Hands, Pressing Strings, and Joey Harkum are all frequent collaborators from the stage to the studio.
