El Perro

A brand new band led by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter/producer Parker Griggs, El Perro contains elements fans of his band Radio Moscow will recognize, but with a new, fresh spin and feel. Whereas Radio Moscow is a power trio drawing from the traditions of heavy psychedelic rock, El Perro takes that starting point and adds the additional instrumentation of a second guitar and a percussionist, pushing the music into more syncopated territory, spiced with Latin rhythms and hints of Funkadelic-style grooves.

After a few weeks of rehearsal, the band debuted in Las Vegas and quickly followed that with shows throughout Northern and Southern California, with European dates already lined up. From CBS News San Francisco reporter Dave Pehling’s preview of El Perro’s show at the Chapel: “While Griggs was busy touring with (Radio Moscow) through this past summer with an extended jaunt through Europe, he recently announced the formation of a new ensemble called El Perro. Taking a different approach to psychedelic rock, the group cites influence from acts on the more soulful and funkier end of the psych spectrum like Black Merda, the Bar Kays and Funkadelic.The quintet featuring onetime Radio Moscow touring drummer Lonnie Blanton, guitarist Holland Redd (UFO TV, Petyr), bassist Shawn Davis and percussionist Blake Armstrong also injects some Latin flavor into its hard-grooving psychedelic jams. The band played its first ever show in Las Vegas earlier this month, supporting former Kyuss/Fu Manchu drummer Brant Bjork.”
