Good Gravy plays at the Ale House on Thursday at 10 p.m. Good Gravy’s flavor can be described as a contemporary approach to American roots music or Americana. Within their recipe are the remnants of bluegrass, rock, folk, jazz and even Caribbean music. This band has an eclectic earthy palette that is even furthered by the use of improvisation, a hard driving rhythm section and occasional electric instrumentation.
