Grinny Grandad have had a pretty interesting career, from playing Glastonbury, Radio 1 sessions, music in Grand Theft Auto games and numerous TV shows, to securing deals with Finger Lickin' Records and Freshly Squeezed, to gaining support from the likes of Groove Armada, Craig Charles, ASkillz, and Keith Lemon!, yet these guys still remain humble.
Fusing Funk, Breaks, Swing, Ghetto-Funk and surreal references to humour with old school record-crate creativity, you end up with an infectious brand of subterranean pop that makes you feel good inside. 2017 saw the release of Grinny Grandad’s multi-chart breaking single "(You've Got To Be) Free" and latest single "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" featuring the Breakspoll award winning Kymberley Kennedy on vocals, soon to be joined by their long awaited album following their recent signing to Freshly Squeezed Music (JFB, Swingrowers, 12 Stone Toddler). There is no denying that this is the band that people will continue to spend their pocket money, wages and, God forbid, their giro on to see. Join the party!
