John "Papa" Gros Band
John "Papa" Gros Band
New Orleans native John “Papa” Gros (pronounced grow) has spent more than a quarter-century behind the piano championing the music of the Big Easy. He turns over a new leaf with his second solo album, River’s on Fire. It’s a record that mixes the sounds of rock & roll, funk and rootsy Americana into a genre-bending gumbo that carries on the tradition of New Orleans, both honoring its past and helping to shape its future.

"John “Papa” Gros is a bedrock New Orleans artist, a keyboardist, singer and songwriter who draws on funk, rhythm & blues and Americana songcraft; he also knows his way around the Mardi Gras music repertoire about as well as anyone." -Keith Spera The Advocate 7/5/17

Currently working on their second studio album, the band is known for energetic live shows and ability to connect with the audience.

The band has emerged as one of Madison’s tightest and most soulful groups, featuring vocalists Scrivens and Gronna, whose singing alone is worth the price of admission.
