Finger Lakes Grassroots Festival Preview: Grey Gary


   What’s going on everyone?! Dan here, and I’ll be at this years 24th annual Finger Lakes Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance! Let’s get the previews rolling with a band from Ithaca, NY known as Grey Gary!. Here’s their song Mama Don’t Mind.

   I really like the intro to this song. The riff on the guitar is really nice and has a nice sound to it. The octave effect on it sounds sweet. [If it’s an octave effect I’m hearing.] The riff continues throughout the song, but I didn’t mind it at all. It never felt stale to me because of the little breaks such as the organ sound and the verses. 

   There’s also a great moment in the song when the song really flourishes and opens up. This moment in the song sounds dreamy and smooth. You can easily get lost and absorbed in this moment of the song. We are quickly grounded back to reality when the repeating riff comes back in. Vocals are nice in this song as well! Lead vocals have a great tone to them and definitely gives this song some character. The backing vocals compliment the lead vocal perfectly. They are smooth, cool, and helps tell a story. 

   Overall, this is a really nice song. It’s a simple song that is really catchy. The guitar riff has been stuck in my head the whole time I’ve been writing this article. Grey Gary is an awesome band to check out, and will be a great addition to this years Finger Lakes Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance. Check this one out and se what you think! Fans of the Arctic Monkeys and Dirty Projectors will especially love this track and band. Until next time, have fun and stay safe everyone!
