There's an old saying in the south that

"Everything Is Better With a Side of Grits”.

Say hello to GRITS - one of the most versatile bands in  East TN since 2006 that plays classic rock, southern rock, outlaw country, blues, funk.  Veteran musicians include Rick Sharp-guitar/vocals, Mike Reynolds-bass, Jimi sharp-guitar/sax/vocals, Matt Reynolds-guitar/vocals, Mark Havely-drums.  We rock,  funk it, make it blue or countrify - whatever the client desires.
